About Our Captain
Our captain, David Berson holds a 400 ton Merchant Marine Masters License and has been operating sailing and power vessels for more than 30 years. He also teaches celestial navigation classes. As a contributing editor to Ocean Navigator magazine, David challenges readers monthly with a celestial navigation problem that is woven into a sea faring story. David is also the host in the new video "High Seas Schooner." He has been sailing since the early 1970's and has been relief captain of some great sailing ships including the PETREL, PIONEER, HARVEY GAMAGE and OCEAN STAR. He is the author of Workers on the Waterfront, a book about Greenport, and Finding our Way, a book of theory and practice of celestial navigation. David was also the chantey man at the South St. Seaport Museum and has been known to sing a song or two while underway.
The combination David's experience and his high standard of safety along with the “green” aspects of GLORY guarantee the most relaxing and safe cruises in beautiful Peconic Bay.
