Ever since his early childhood on the island of Malta, Tony has loved being near, on, or in the water. He spent most of his life in the Muskoka and Kawartha Lakes regions of southern Ontario: swimming, boating, waterskiing, windsurfing, and sailing (a 16' cat). He also worked for a living... a decade as a Marine Cartographer with the Canadian Hydrographic Service, and later as a Fleming College Prof, specializing in GIS and mapping for 20 years. Tony moved to the west coast in 2006, and has since sailed over 8,000 nautical miles (14,800 kms) here. He also serves as a crew member of the local Marine Search & Rescue, and as a substitute Skipper on the Gibsons Harbour Ferry. Tony is a TransportCanada-certified sailor/navigator. He has taken hundreds of people sailing on BC's west coast... and he would love to take you sailing as well !
