All I want to do is talk about boats. Seriously, it’s addicting.
My name is Jonathan, I have been sailing and racing boats for 17 years. I was a US Sailing Certified Sailing Instructor at the University of New Hampshire Community Sailing Center. Now, I live in Washington, DC and sail on the Chesapeake Bay with my wife Erin. In July of 2014, a 1975 Sabre 28 (s/v Social Security) came into our life and I am concurrently restoring, sailing and racing this boat. This blog is a chronicle of adventures on the Chesapeake Bay, racing sailboats, coastal cruising, boat maintenance, boat ownership, sailing with your spouse and the dismal economics of boating on a budget.
