Susan, originally from the East Coast began sailing small dinghies during the short New England summers. The winters she spent tackling the local ski mountains with her family and friends. In the late 70's Susan had moved to California, mesmerized by the beach culture she sailed Hobie 14's, 16's and 18's at the local beach breaks. After owning several businesses in San Diego and San Francisco Susan decided it was time to live a simpler life. Mist is Susan's 2nd cruising boat. When not sailing Susan resides in the mountains of Northern California. Elba, a San Francisco native, began sailing dinghies in the San Francisco Bay. She bought and restored her first sailboat, a 29' Trintella in the mid 90's. She enjoyed sailing in the bay and racing bird boats with friends. This is Elba's 3rd cruising boat and the second one she has sailed across oceans. Elba resides in Northern California when not sailing.
