Jim started sailing in 2007 on beautiful Seneca Lake with his wife Susan. They learned a lot that first summer, most importantly how to reef early! Never having been seriously involved with boats led Jim and Sue to conclude they needed to learn and the Power Squadron provided that education along with all of the great boating friends they have made in Watkins Glen. Jim and Sue are both power and sail boat owners and enjoy cruising. They have rented a boat in San Diego and managed to motor it out of the bay and into the Pacific Ocean and back safely.
Jim enjoys taking the classes and giving back as an instructor.
