Joe Parker

Joe has been sailing for 40+ years, in many PHRF events on boats from 22′ to 70′. Joe has competed in the IOR One-Ton NAs and Worlds, and also raced in the Beneteau 36.7s, Catalina 22s, Tanzer 26s, J/24s, J/35s, International 110’s, MORC and Great Lakes 70′ fleet. Coupled with Joe’s vast experience, he’s competed in five Key West Race Week events, a number of Harbor Springs regattas, more than 20 Bayview-Mackinac races, 15 Chicago-Mackinac races, three Ft Lauderdale to Key West races, and six doublehanded Lake Huron Challenge races. He is also a familiar face in multiple Detroit NOOD race editions and countless local PHRF races on Saginaw Bay and Tawas Bay. Joe’s wife Debbie enjoys cruising all over the lakes and along the eastern seaboard with Joe and has shared his experiences too over the last 40 years.

“I truly love being on the water. Every day is somehow different than every other day. Often I am asked how long it took me to learn to sail and I simply respond with: ‘my entire life; I am not done learning how yet.’ I love to cruise and see new (and old favorite) places. I love to race, particularly with fun people at any level of competition. And as unusual as it may sound, I love to work on boats and find the most elegant solution that I can to any problem at hand.”

Joe looks forward to assisting new and current clients in the Saginaw Bay Area.
