Our Captains


Captain Tony Ireland was racing small sailboats on the Long Island Sound in the 60s, and somehow, after years of professional corporate experience, he found his way back and has been sailing blue water cruisers for the past two decades, including several offshore races, numerous yacht deliveries, and chartered cruises on the Chesapeake and Biscayne Bays, as well as the Caribbean and the Florida Keys. He is a USCG licensed captain, and an ASA certified instructor.

Captain Nate Hesse has sailed the waters of Maine, Cuba, British Columbia and the Adriatic Sea, but is always drawn back to the maritime culture of the Chesapeake Bay. He has captained traditional boats for outdoor education and environmental organizations on the Chesapeake Bay and Washington State, led youth sailing programs, and captained various private sailing yachts. He is a USCG licensed captain, and an US Sailing certified instructor.
