2019 Officers



We are enjoying life in the PNW where we spend as much time as possible on “Singing In the Rain” our Mariner 37. We are committed to the notion that “informed boaters are safe boaters” and take every opportunity to upgrade our boating skills. EHYC is all about being informed and safe boaters, and we are fortunate to have so many seasoned mariners in our midst who are more than happy to share their knowledge.  Sue, Bertie (our boat dog) and I look forward to seeing you safely on the water.



I have always loved boating and started with Sea Scouts at the age of 13. We had a 63' power boat and cruised the San Francisco Bay, the river delta and out into the Pacific. We joined EHYC shortly after moving to Bainbridge in 2015 and love cruising the Sound with the good friends we have met through the club.

I spent my entire life in the Midwest until 2012. My wife, Tobi, and I then felt a calling to the PNW and have not looked back since. I come from a boating family and have been on and around canoes, sailboats and powerboats my entire life. As a young adult, I sailed the majority of the Caribbean Islands and learned to handle larger boats. Since moving to BI, Tobi and I have committed to power boating and we’re enjoying it immensely. Our new Tiara 3200 is a retirement gift to ourselves for PNW cruising. We look forward to cruising with all of you in the near future!

For many years during the summers, Jeff and I chartered both sail and power boats out of Bellingham and Anacortes to enjoy exploring the San Juan & Gulf Islands. After retiring in 2004 we moved from Napa Valley to Bainbridge Island where we can enjoy boating full time in the Northwest. We love being able to keep our boat in Eagle Harbor, just 5 minutes from the house. It’s a real treat to decide on the spur of the moment to take the boat out for a lunch run or do some crabbing. We joined Eagle Harbor Yacht Club in 2011 and are finding it one of the most fun yacht clubs we’ve belonged to over the years. When not out on our Catalina 355, Segue, you can usually find us in the garden or relaxing on the deck, watching the boats sail by on the Sound.


Jon and I are both very happily retired and enjoying all that Bainbridge Island and the Pacific Northwest has to offer.  We've had a great time since our arrival here in 2015, cruising, fishing and crabbing on the Sound, and continuing to enjoy the company and good humor of the many friends we've made through the club.
