About the crew

We are Mark and Rose (Rosemary) Leone.  Welcome to Sailing Painkiller! 

We have had the dream of sailing and cruising on our sailboat for quite sometime, years in fact.  Mark grew up sailing on Lake Mille Lacs in northern Minnesota on a small sunfish at his family cabin.  Rose learned to sail by taking a learn to sail class through Colgate Sailing School in Captiva, FL.  We have both been hooked on sailing since!  Here’s a bit about each of us:

Mark – Mr. Fixit, Captain, Titcher of sails, able to fix broken items in a single bound, woodworker, drinker of rum, captain, lazarette diver, grill master, Dad, Father in-law, beer connoisseur, music lover, fisherman, wrestling fan

Rose – Seamstress, cook, social media manager, nurse, organizer, reader of instructions, manager of excel spreadsheets, drinker of gin & tonics, travel consultant, social coordinator, lover of cats, Mom, Mother in-law, likes to sleep, ukulele player
