Brian has an eclectic mix of hobbies such as metal working, glass bead making, archery,
backpacking, camping, cider making, running, and of course sailing.
He caught the sailing bug 20 years ago with a friend on her little wooden sailboat a 1947
Blanchard Sr. Knockabout. Soon after he found himself on a six day trip sailing from Whidbey
Is. to the San Francisco Bay. He is happy boating on anything from a kayak to an aircraft
carrier, although he can hardly wait to turn the motor off and set sail. Brian currently holds a
USCG 50 Ton Masters with sailing and towing endorsements. He also works as an EMT and
has 18 years experience with marine rescue on various boats in the fire department.
