Mahina Offshore Services was founded in 1976 with my book, Log of the Mahina, that chronicled my sailing adventures through the South Pacific. This book launched offshore cruising seminars, boat selection consultations and starting in the 1990, offshore sail-training expeditions.

If you’re keen to gather knowledge and experience to accomplish your cruising goals safely and successfully, I’m here to help mentor you.
