Peter has been sailing since a young skipper in boy scouting. He learned to sail on Sunfish and Lasers in the
mid 70’s when he was not skateboarding. After a long break from sailing after college, marriage, and two young
daughters, Peter was bitten again to sail after a Girl Scout event with fathers (Daddy and Me) that sailing was
involved. Peter currently sails a Sunfish and a Windsurfer on Austin and Gull Lake during the soft water season.
Through a network of ice skippers, Peter found a relic Super DN that he has been restoring during the last
year. Peter joined the club in 2007. Peter has been able to ice sail with a borrowed DN iceboat from the club
during the 2008-2009 season. He is planning to debut his own iceboat during the 2009-2010 Iceboat season
here in Michigan. His future project build boat may be a J-14. See you on the ice.
