Paul was an avid sailboat racer with the Lunenburg crew onboard Ramage in his earlier years.

He was keenly interested in the Lunenburg Yacht Club and in particular the Learn to Sail program. He was always willing to lend a helping hand whenever needed. Much of his free time was spent boating on the waters of Mahone Bay.
