New England & Nova Scotia sailing!

Just finished a great winter in the Bahamas and NOVA is currently in GA, USA. Mid June I will be sailing north for summer sailing around New England and beautiful Nova Scotia. Come fall I will sail south to tropical waters (TBD) so time onboard has the potential to be open ended! Sailing experience is great, but a desire to learn and positive fun attitude are key! Say hello, can’t wait to talk!

Couldn't ask for a better captain!


I spent three months crewing on Jeds boat, and could not have asked for a better captain. We had lots of fun, laughter and adventures along with some excellent sailing. Jeds confidence and his enthusiasm for life is contagious – you can’t help but have a good time! I’ve made memories to last a lifetime. The boat is spacious and well equipped which made my stay very comfortable. Jed picked an excellent selection of crew over the winter which just enhanced the experienced even more, and led to some great friendships. I learnt a lot from Jed, and his patience deserves an award as he explained anything I needed help with – including practicing my bowline a million times! If you get the opportunity to sail with Jed, grab it with both hands!
