Vincent grew up sailing small boats and racing Hobie cats as a kid all over the Northeast. In college at the University of Pittsburgh, he co-founded the sailing team and helped acquire a fleet of boats for students to train and enter collegiate sailing events. His passion for sailing quickly evolved into big boat cruising, and he began volunteering & working as crew on yacht deliveries all over the East & West Coast, Central America, Caribbean, and Mediterranean. Soon, Vincent began facilitating his own deliveries and charters as Captain, teaching offshore sailing, and introducing more people to the sport. Having recently logged his 50,000th nautical mile and 720th day at sea, he now holds a USCG 100 ton Master license. When not sailing, he loves climbing, SCUBA diving, mountain biking, cooking, traveling, and cleaning plastic out of the oceans. His favorite boat remains the Hobie 16, but these days he can be found sailing everything from cruising catamarans to racing yachts.
Amy grew up sailing on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Every year, her parents would charter a boat for a month to travel the east coast. At the age of 8, she was sent to sailing camp in Brewster, Cape Cod, where she returned year after year, eventually exploring other Cape Cod sailing schools as well. For 5 years during high school and college, she taught sailing at a club in Boston on Hobie cats, lasers, and 420s. During her final years there, she was the head instructor, overseeing the curriculum and all levels of the summer camp program, coaching the racing group. After moving to New York, Amy worked at the Manhattan Sailing School teaching ASA Basic Keelboat Sailing for two seasons.
Occasionally, when not sailing, she windsurfs.
