|Profile for Christian Allaire's Sailing Life|
|Hailing Port:||San Francisco|
|About:||Single Handed Sailor|
|I left Newport Rhode Island in September of 2007 aboard Christa, my Westsail32 bound for the worlds oceans.
I spent the months of Sep-Dec 2007 sailing down the US east coast. In December of 2007 I made the jump to the Bahamas. February 2008 found me in Luperon Dominican Republic.
After spending an exciting hurricane season on the hook in Salinas Puerto Rico I sailed east to the Virgin Islands. After a quick stint as a Charter Boat Captain in St John I continued down island.
I spent 2009 throughout the Leewards and Windwards. I hauled Christa out in Grenada for 2009 hurricane season and headed back stateside for 3 months.
I rolled back to Grenada and re-launched Christa. At this point I had made the decision to sail back to Florida and truck Christa back to California, so I could take advantage of the Post 911 GI Bill. I will start College at Dominican University of California in San Francisco in August of 2010.
So I had two months of some of the best sailing ever back to Florida. In November I crossed the Caribbean Sea to St Thomas. From St Thomas I made a stop in Dominican Republic and then continued through the Bahamas.
I am now moored in my winter spot in Naples Florida, where I have picked up some work.
Thanks for coming along!
