Look Who’s Back — It’s Captain Amber!

Captain Amber joined Traverse Tall Ship Company last year as the captain of Sailing Yacht Scout, and we are happy to have her back again in 2018.  So…what has she been up to?

After leaving Traverse City last fall she went to Europe for 3 weeks. Traveling solo, she spent 5 days in Paris and 2 1/2 weeks in Portugal where she mostly laid on beaches and roamed around seeing palaces and castles.  Not too shabby, huh?!

After traveling to Europe, she returned to Key West and her 5th season on Schooner America 2.0 (a 105-foot sailing yacht and a tribute to the first Schooner America — winner of the first America’s Cup in 1851).  This time around though, she finally got checked out to drive the boat!

She bought a new (to her) car as is now able to explore northern Michigan this year and hopes to make Sleeping Bear a regular hang out and see Mackinac and the UP this season.

Oh….and she got these sweet custom “Scout” painted shoes while in Florida as well.
