Rob grew up at sea. Accustomed to sailing across the Bay of Biscay with his family as a child, he has gone on to compete in a number of the world’s major ocean races, including the infamous Fastnet and Caribbean 600. While he takes a less competitive approach to sailing these days, he has recently taken part in the US East Coast offshore racing circuit including the Vineyard Race, Bloc Island Race and Stamford Overnight. He is a member of the Royal Ocean Racing Club and drinks rum.
Sam developed his taste for the ocean sailing the US East Coast and the Caribbean. He earned his skipper’s license in Sag Harbor, Long Island and has spent his summers crewing the Sailing Yacht Tender on New York’s waterways. Week-long sails in the British Virgin Islands and Guadeloupe have nurtured Sam’s sea shanty and rum cocktail repertoire and inspired him in the cause of ocean conservation.
