Our Crew

  Paul    Owner/Captain   The man who makes it happen! Paul founded Let's Go Sailing as a hobby in 1984. He found sailing and his passion at the age of 22 in Subic Bay, Phillipines while stationed there in the United States Marine Corps. His first charter boat was a Ranger 23' that never ended up getting a name. After taking a trip to Hawaii, he saw the catamarans come in and out of the beach and realized sailing full-time could be a real career. He then decided to purchase a larger boat to make his charter dreams a reality. He sailed his Hunter 54, Kaholo Makani throughout Puget Sound. As he continued on, his passion for sailboat racing grew. when he sold Kaholo Makani and purchased the 70'ft yachts we have today, Obsession and Neptune's Car. He still races during fall, winter, and spring, and occasionally skippers the yachts when they are doing charters in the summer. If you have enjoyed one of our sailing experiences, this is the man to thank.

  Joey    General Manager/Captain   Joey was raised on the water. Even at a young age he loved sailing and driving boats in the Seattle area. His first official job on the water was as a Sailing Instructor at Seattle Yacht Club. Though teaching on 14 foot boats was exciting, he always had his eyes on the big yachts. So he ditched his flip-flops for Sperry's and worked as a deckhand until he got his U.S. Coast Guard Captain's License. In the winters he prefers to be on Maui, where he works as a naturalist on a dive boat. When not driving sailing yachts, he travels the world having been to 7 Continents and 64 countries.

  Ted    Captain   Ted became interested in sailing in 2007, after working as a guide in Southeast Alaska. He moved to Seattle, took two sailing lessons, and bought a Catalina 27. With the help of his friends, Ted became involved in yacht racing and began to explore the Salish Sea on his boat, "Lucy." Through boat ownership, Ted developed an interest in the trades and in 2010, he attended wooden boat building school in Port Townsend, WA. Since then, Ted has completed schooling in the premedical sciences, and plans to apply to medical school. Sailing off of Seattle's waterfront is how Ted likes to spend his summers. He enjoys meeting people from all walks of life, and introducing them to the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest through sailing. This will be Ted's 10th year working with Let's Go Sailing.
