Position: Chief Mate

What is the best part of your job? The best part of my job is teaching professional sailors proper traditional seamanship and marlinespike skills. Preserving these skills and traditions is a very important part of what we do. A sailor once told me early in my career that a good sailor is known for the knowledge and skills he passes on to others. 

What is your favorite place you've sailed to: Having sailed mostly along the east coast, Penobscot Bay and the Caribbean are some of my favorites, along with all points in between.

What is your definition of a salad? It bears much consideration
