Modern Sailing is Going Green with an electric engine!

this is it, tiny and quiet… and it doesn’t smell like diesel! I had the pleasure of taking the Ericson 32 “Sirenita” on it’s maiden voyages this weekend while coaching the Modern Sailing beginning race team through a sail trim clinic saturday and starts and marks clinic sunday using the electric engine for the first time. It’s amazingly quiet and yet screams efficiency when you rev it up and get full power to maneuver in close-quarters. Very impressed!

Just the beginning…

Chilly winter in Sausalito aboard my little mahogany sailing vessel… more storms to come and I’m pondering life and where it’s all going… I’ve heard it so many times… “You get paid to go sailing?  How do I get your job?”  I do feel lucky, cold winters and all.  2013 is the year for sharing all the good stuff in and around San Francisco Bay, so here goes my first blog attempt…  enjoy!
