In 1978 while running his own sail loft, Michael was invited to become part of the North Sails network. He jumped at the opportunity and began work as the One Design Manager. He subsequently purchased the loft, which has given him great sailing opportunities at the highest level worldwide and locally. “I look upon my whole career as a highlight as I started as a owner/manager in my 20s and have enjoyed every day since.”

Select sailing highlights include steering in the America’s Cup and winning the Maxi Worlds, Admiral’s Cup, and Kenwood Cup. Michael can also claim victories in the San Francisco Big Boat Series, Sydney to Hobart Race, and others.

Asked how to grow one’s sailing abilities, Michael says, “Sail with as many talented sailors as you can and learn from them.” For those with experience under their belt, he says, “Always share your knowledge, as until you teach others you can not move on to new opportunities yourself.”
