Q&A with Captain Rob, Owner

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
When I was in Vietnam with the US Army. For relaxation, special services provided sailboats for us to use. When I returned from overseas and started managing Sears stores, it was a great therapy to get out on the water.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Watching the faces of my customers change after a lesson or rental. They are so much more relaxed. It is like a mental massage for them. It is a great stress-buster to get out on the water.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?
Being part of a class and enjoying in the team-building fun.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
My dad was a naval commander. I was born in the Oakland Naval Yard. I built my first boat when I was 8 years old. My wife and I both hold a 50 ton US Coast Guard Sailing Captains License. We have spent 150 days in a 25-foot sailboat circumnavigating Florida. I love the peace being on the water brings.
