James, an analytical research chemist and Sandra, an elementary school “retired” teacher have loved sailing for over 30 years.   We have owned a 14.2 Capri, a 27′ O’Day, a 27′ Catalina.  Now we have the J40 and most recently a 20′ Holder for racing. During these years we have chartered in the Caribbean and numerous places on the east and even the west coast.  If there is water, James somehow finds a way to sail on it even if it involves “strange talking” to unknown sailors to hitch a ride like we did last summer on Lake Erie.  One of our dreams has been to own a boat at the coast.  In 2009 we took the plunge and bought Ragtime, the J40.  From our home port in Charleston, SC, we have sailed one and two week jaunts up the Carolinas and down to Georgia.  The second part of our dream has been to cruise/sail on our boat for an extended time.  With retirement we are seeing that dream become reality.

  1. What an adventure! May you have just enough wind at your stern to make progress on your schedule, just enough sun and warmth to “peel those layers,” and just enough adventures for memories to last a lifetime. Be well, and safe travels, Dave
