I have been sailing since I was a little girl on Prams, Lasers, Sunfish, and on larger boats from 24 ft to 60 ft weekly in the local Regattas and Races with the Hillsboro Inlet Sailing club.
I sail a Hobie Wave that I enjoy with my family and friends on the weekends and during the week when I can get away.
I live aboard my 2010 Hunter 49 with my 4 kids.
