Living in Mission Beach with a Prindle 18’ Catamaran parked right across the street on the bayside meant many fun-filled days single hulling across the bay, while learning the basic of sailing.

In the early 2000’s Mike purchased his first sloop, a Pearson 30’, then followed it up with a Catalina 34’ and realized that sailing for him, was going to be a lifetime passion.
