Owner and Captain
Captain Green has been sailing the waters in and around Newport, RI, since 2005. Since then, he has professionally sailed a variety of vessels, both for charter and private.
Green grew up living aboard a 29-foot wooden boat with his family on the East Coast of the USA. He has a degree in Business Administration and was deep in the Information Systems world when he and his wife, Jen, decided to puchase an old 32-foot sailboat. After restoring Egret, they cruised the boat from Florida through the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos to the Dominican Republic. They had so much fun that they purchased Lyra in 2008 with the eventual goal of sharing their experiences with their family.
Indeed, in the fall of 2013, Green and family sailed south to do exactly that, eventually ending up in the Bahamas and returning for the 2014 sailing season.
Green's wife Jen is Senior Editor at Cruising World magazine, where Captain Green is a regular contributor. They have two children and lived aboard full time for nine and one-half years.
