When a man shows up for his job wearing a ball cap embroidered with a bicycle that reads: "Livin' the Effin' Dream" you know you've probably met an interesting guy.
Tyson has bicycled all over the world including long distance treks to Japan, New Zealand and just this winter, a long trek down the Baja into Mexico. Let's just say he's a serious bike-junkie.
Tyson has sailed aboard Aquidneck on and off since 2008. Like most of our captains he started out as crew and worked his way up to captain. Referred to as "The Minister of Narragansett Bay" by one of his sailing school students, Tyson knows the history of every sight and is extremely knowledgeable about the coastline, bay, ocean and issues affecting them.
He has sailed on boats ranging from Lasers, 420's and FJ's, to J 22's, SEA sail training vessels including the Corwith Cramer and Robert Seamans and even a stint on Dodge Morgan's solo round the world boat, Americian Promise.
His past work experience includes sailing instructor, fisheries observer and serving as the Sustainability and Educational Program Director for Sailors for the Sea. In his off time you might catch him rebuilding a bike to give to a friend, or picking plastic out of the harbor.
