Sailing: The Complete Experience

Captain Tom Power offers sailing and navigation training in Gulf of Maine and the British Virgin Islands. Beginners and experienced sailors welcome.


  • U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain

  • 30-Years Gulf of Maine Experience
  • 25 Years Caribbean Experience

As captain of coastal ferry services, Friendship sloops, 50-foot sailing sloops and a host of large and small vessels, Power has maintained his nautical interest and found a balance–between academic pursuits and the hands-on skills of navigating the oceans of New England and the Caribbean.
