Sailing & Maritime History

I learned to sail in Santa Barbara, California and have cruised throughout the Salish Sea, Mexico, Croatia, French Polynesia, and the Caribbean, often conducting research at the same time. Currently I write a column for 48° North Sailing Magazine on lighthouses and maritime history.  Click the button below for a selected list of publications.
