Liveaboard Interview with Ben Stookey

I recently met this really cool singlehanded liveaboard cruiser guy named Ben while he had his Nonsuch 26 sailboat on the free dock in Oriental, North Carolina. He had an amazing story to tell of his life and about sailing and cruising in general.

Ben Stookey was introduced to sailing at a very young age by his parents. His father sailed a 21 foot sailboat from England to Antigua in the Mini Transat Race in 1977. When Ben was 14, his parents bought a boat in Finland they spent years cruising all over Europe. Ben’s first year of high school was in Spain. Today, Ben lives aboard a Nonsuch 26 named ‘Swallow.’ He is currently cruising the US East coast, and earning a living from computer programming remotely aboard his boat using a wifi connection.Ben Stookey dropped into Oriental NC on his sailboat during his tour of the East coast. He lives and works on his boat, and has been sailing since he was a child. Check out his story!
