Capt. Jonathan Boulware started his sailing life in traditional small boats at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, where his father worked, and was for many years a tall ship skipper. As a captain and educator he has sailed the waters of New England, the North Atlantic, the Caribbean and Southern California. These days, Boulware has the biggest command of his career, at the helm of the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City. As executive director Boulware has returned the museum’s focus to the waterfront, to the ships and piers that built the Big Apple, and to vibrant programming both ashore and afloat.
Terry Ingels’ first command was her own 25-foot Cape Dory sailboat at the mouth of the Chesapeake at age 18. Her most recent was an 82-foot Viking sportfisherman that cruised between the Viking factory in New Jersey and New England. In between, there have been Browards, Burgers, Palmer-Johnsons, Lazarras, Westports, Deltas, Sunseekers and Feadships — some as large as 150 feet.
