Greg McDowell grew up in Fullerton, California and was first exposed to sailing in the late 70's when he started sailing Shields 30's with his friends in Newport Beach Harbor. From this casual hobby, he discovered a great passion that, to his surprise, was to become a lifelong love for boating. Greg bought his first boat, a Santana 22, in 1983 and has been in the Dana Point Harbor ever since. Over the years Greg has done as much coastal cruising, racing and Bareboat Charters as he can while enjoying a family and full time job.
Thirty years later Greg bought the boat he'd been dreaming of for many years, a Pacific Seacraft 31, purchased right here at Suncoast Yachts. Greg is starting his next phase in life as a Yacht Consultant with Suncoast - a career he hopes will keep him ever closer to his passion for boating. If you're looking for your first boat or the boat of your dreams come to Suncoast Yachts and ask for Greg. You can reach Greg direct on his cell 949 795-6797 or his email email@example.com
Ron Barnett was born in Indiana, Ron's life-long love of all things nautical began at age 5 when his father introduced him to boating and turned him loose with his first 5HP outboard fishing boat. While growing up, Ron and his family spent every summer at Lake Shafer where he spent most of his waking hours either in or on the water - whether boating, water skiing, fishing, swimming or lifeguarding.
In 1972, the Navy brought him to San Diego where he became a Navy Corpsman attached to the Marine Corps. During the 70's, Ron's love for the sea kept him immersed in everything sailing. Always the entrepreneur, he got early cruising experience when he bought sailboats in Florida, sailed them across the Gulf of Mexico, then trucked them to California for re-sale. In the years following he has never been without a boat, owning several powerboats as well as sailboats.
In recent years, he has done a good deal of sailboat racing, from weekend series to coastal races -- including the Newport to Ensenada race -- placing in most. With 40 years of experience, his love and knowledge of sailing, a "safety first" motto, and a passion for teaching others to embrace sailing, Ron is known as "Captain Ron" among family and friends.
Ron and his wife, Jodee have lived aboard in the past on their sailboat, on Shelter Island. Over the 21 years they've been married, Ron has taught Jodee everything he knows about boating and sailing. Today, she proudly calls herself his First Mate and together they share a great love for the water.
