Stephanie Katz is a young woman from the Northeastern United States who did not grow up on boats. She got her first taste of sailing at about 20 while spending a summer crewing on a schooner in mid-coast Maine, and fell in love with it from the start. It took five years and several office jobs for her to realize that if she wanted to live and work on the water, she could. In 2009, she got back on a boat, and hasn’t looked back since. Although her experience is mainly limited to traditionally rigged tall-ships, she is very interested in blue-water cruising and the private yacht industry, where she feels opportunity and adventure await. These days she spends most of her time working towards further licensing and certification in the maritime industry, planning how and where she will embark on her next adventure, and writing this here blog.
