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.
