About Your Captain: Captain Will Hargrove has sailed for his entire life. He grew up sailing, boating, and lobstering in Perkins Cove and has sailed to every corner of the Maine coast. A graduate of Maine Maritime Academy, he holds a 1600-ton license and a bachelor's degree in Vessel Operations and Technology. This degree entailed extensive training and earned Will an impressive list of certifications, making him one of the most qualified captains in Perkins Cove. When it's not sailing season, Will fishes for lobster offshore all winter in his 40 foot lobster boat.
Will's career has found him aboard oil tankers, tugboats, sailing vessels, and lobster boats. He has crossed the Atlantic and the equator (aboard a ship) in the time honored tradition of becoming a shellback, which commemorates a mariner's first crossing of the equator.
Will started the current iteration of the Sail Me business in 2016, with a 25 foot sailboat, offering sailing lessons to vacationers. His current boat is the same 34 footer he grew up sailing on from Perkins Cove. The first iteration of Sail Me was operated by Will's family in the 70s and 80s.
