Matt grew up in Connecticut, just outside of New York City, where he gained most of his sailing experience racing on Long Island Sound. He has been sailing since he was 10 years old and has sailed everything from small one-designs to larger yachts and day cruisers. He spent two years as a sailing instructor in Greenwich and enjoys spending his free time on the water with friends regardless of the occasion. Most of his yacht charter experience has been in the British Virgin Islands, however, this year he will spend time on the Greece, Croatia South and Italy routes from where he will be writing his experience of the Aeolian Route in this Skipper Diary.
