European Boaters Vs. Americans: Wed. Feb. 21

Vive la Difference!

GSPS Capt Eric KnottCapt. Eric Knott discusses the difference between boaters in the US & Europe at the Club’s February meeting. 

Greenwich Boat & Yacht Club
9 Grass Island Road, Greenwich, CT
Wednesday, Feb. 21, 7 pm

All USPS and GBYC members and friends are welcome
Usual light refreshments will be served

The Presenter:

A commercial fisherman going to sea with his father, in 1973 Eric was awarded his Master’s Certificate of Competence in 1986 and sailed in that position out of northern European ports until 1994 when he joined a nautical training school as senior instructor and operating manager of 12 sea-going training vessels working throughout Europe. During this time, he consulted for law firms, the police and insurance companies, investigating maritime accidents in Europe and the US. In 2003 he moved to the USA and joined Landfall Navigation to run the developing Marine Training Center. He gained his US master’s license and now has the distinction of being licensed under both US and UK authorities. In 2006, he joined the safety department of Moran Towing and is responsible for safety audits and inspections of ship assist tugs.  In his spare time, he fishes from his own boat, a 23′ Steigercraft Little Bear or with his grandson, Peter in his 13′ center console Reel Fun who, if asked why he pumps out after rain replies, “Bilge levels should be kept to a minimum.” Eric has been appointed by the Governor of Connecticut as Harbor Master for Stamford Harbor. 

The Topic:

Differences between recreational boaters in the U.S. and in Northern Europe, e.g.:

  • The people, the same … but different
  • The boats, they look the same but …
  • The weather (a favorite subject for conversation especially in England)
  • The mind-set (of the people)

So we have a very serious boater addressing a very fun topic!
