Crew Info: Heather Monroe
A life-long Mainer who was born loving the sea and her state's nautical traditions. She was raised as all Mainers are to value hard work, enjoy dry humor, respect Mother Nature and love all well-made things. Her grandmother fostered in her a love of simple, delicious meals with an emphasis on from-scratch making and baking with fresh, wholesome ingredients.
In 2015 Heather was hired on a historic schooner - from the moment she stepped aboard, she was utterly hooked. Working onboard combined her loves of sailing, hospitality, and the challenges of cooking from-scratch meals for thirty people on a woodstove in a tiny galley on a rolling ship. She returned for several summers to teach, but also to learn and improve her sailing, windjamming, and culinary skills. Heather has learned how to chart, navigate, and work the systems on any boat.
On crewed charters she creates customized experiences for her guests: no two charters are the same. Her enthusiasm for life, adventure, teaching, and all things ocean makes her perfectly suited to create a once in a lifetime experience for her guests.
