You are guaranteed to have a safe and enjoyable sailing adventure with Gordon. You will find him to be both entertaining and informative. Gordon began sailing in 1980 as a crew member racing on a J-24 in Halifax. This was an awesome training experience as members of the top boats would mentor the less experienced sailors in order to make the fleet more competitive. Gordon competed in local races for five years and participated in the J-24 Canadian nationals in 1984. Gordon went on to a crew, navigate and pilot a CC 44 on cruises along the coast of Maine, the Bay of Fundy and along the South Coast of Nova Scotia. He also crewed for a number of years racing in Saint John, NB on a J-36.
