Started sailing in Norway and in San Francisco from 1976. Took all the classes USPS had to offer. Started teaching USPS courses in 1982.
My family were all teachers, so I am one of them. To help students reach higher standards in seamanship is one of USPS’s goals. I like to be a part of this process.
