Derrick started sailing on Lake Ontario in 2016. First on @dock.calm, a 23’ Georgian, which he sailed from Scarborough Bluffs Yacht Club to Port Dover Harbour Marina, joining friends there on Dock 6. Then in 2017, after deciding to make sailing a big part of their upcoming retirement, Derrick and his wife, Nicole bought Zambezi, a 35’ C&C Mk1, which they sailed from National Yacht Club in Toronto, through the Welland Canal for the second time in two years, to her new home on Dock 3 at PDHM. In 2019, the couple joined Long Point Bay Yacht Club, taking part in all the social and cruising activities including two amazing trips across Lake Erie to Erie, Pennsylvania. Derrick is an Account Manager for DormaKaba, working with institutional accounts for their lock hardware needs.
