Im Greta Gannon. I grew up on Martha’s Vineyard, an island off Cape Cod MA. My family owns a wooden boatyard on the island and I have been raised on and around boats my whole life.

My husband and I have been a Captain & Chef duo on sailing charters and boat deliveries for several years and moved back onto land just as COVID 19 hit. Since then we have been working for a sailing school in RI. I figure it now is the right time to take the next step to becoming a captain.March 8, 2021 at 8:12 pm #5840David WilsonParticipant
