Ben first fell in love with sailing as a boy, aboard his grandfather’s daysailer on the East Coast of Florida. Years later, following a summer spent as crew on a competitive and successful racing yacht on Lake Michigan, the deal was sealed. He was hooked, and has spent a good part of his adult life trying to find his way onto boats. As owner, caretaker and captain of the beautiful sailing yacht, Ketut, there is little he loves more than being on the water and sharing the experience with others.
Ben is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Operator, and has First Aid/CPR certification.
He is also a husband, father, and professional musician with the indie-folk band, St. Paul de Vence.
