About Tim

“Started sailing 45 years ago after buying a sailboat that was at the bottom of a lake (raised it, fixed it and sailed it). Raced off and on. Helped with the 6 meter World Cup in Seattle during university studies and was a skipper at UW sailclub. I've sailed in Europe (often in the Med) and the USA (Maine, Puget Sound, San Francisco, SanDiego). I sail from 4 to 10 times a year these days. Have sailed on Lasers, 420s to a Chrysler Buccaneer (almost a 505), Santana 22, Olson 25 (with Boatbound in SF Bay), Catalinas 27 to 34, Hunter 36, Oceanis 38, 48, Sangria 25. Recently (2010/2011), due to increased pressure from US Coast Guard on rental agencies in US took classes and received certification for Keelboat and Basic Coastal sailing. ”


Aboard since 2013

From Berkeley, CA

    Tim was a pleasure to rent to, and a great person to meet. He's a very accomplished sailor and a really nice guy! He left the boat in great shape, and I hope I have a chance to rent to him again.

    It was just great renting to Tim. He was clearly very knowledgeable about sailing and I felt completely at ease while he was out on my boat. He was also punctual, easy to communicate with, and, importantly, attentive to the little details that matter to a boat owner. I found my boat in great shape when he returned. I don't think you will find many renters who are as conscientious and competent as Tim - highly recommended!
