Since he started sailing in 1984, Patrick has been hooked on the sport. Starting in Lasers and learning to sail larger keel boats at a young age, he’s spent the majority of his life out on the water. First at Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club on the waters of the Monterey Bay and then in the more extreme setting of the San Francisco Bay, sailing has taken me to destinations around the world.

Along the way Patrick has sailed in Australia as a junior on the Youth Match Race Tour and as an adult in the JJ Giltinan 18-foot-skiff championships, out to Hawaii on offshore races, as well as during his college years at University of Hawaii. Through Europe on the 49er Olympic circuit and aboard the TP-52 Rio, Patrick covered most of the waters of the old country, not to mention nearly every major sailing port in North America.

When not managing the Quantum Sails San Francisco, Patrick is focused on sailing one-design events as a tactician and racing offshore as a navigator.
