Captain Erica.

100-ton Inland and OUPV Near Coastal - Sail endorsed. I am a sailor who teaches high school in the "off season". I love being on the water! I am happy to teach you or your children how to sail or steer a boat, or just be there next to you as you gain confidence at the helm. Or, you can sit back and relax, as I am just as happy to steer all day. Happy to work anywhere. Boston is home base, but I will travel as needed. Read More
