Captain Ken has worked, raced, and recreated on and around the water all his life. During his teenage years, he competed on the water. He has a 27-year career in the Navy and years of cruising as a hobby. He has commanded a wide variety of crafts from small sailboats to 10,000 ton Navy Destroyers. Although he has operated around the world, he finds the Chesapeake Bay one of his favourite places to sail.
A former U.S. Naval Officer, teaches Midshipmen at the U.S. Academy to sail 44 ft sailboats during summer training. He loves sailing on the Chesapeake Bay.
His love of the Chesapeake Bay and sailing has existed for more than 40 years. He cannot decide which he loves more… the grandkids or sailing. His solution is sailing with the grandkids!
He enjoys few things more than a cup of coffee with a beautiful sunrise at a tranquil Chesapeake Bay anchorage or high mountain lake, and can often be found chasing sunsets either by sail or mountain trail. Phil spends his free time with his family and experiencing the beauty of nature.
His love of the water started with his first job as a mate on charter fishing boats as a teenager and later after high school he became a commercial clammer on Long Inland, New York. He is a retired meteorologist, has been sailing since his twenties, and has owned several sailboats. But he still loves to be on the water to catch the wind!
