About Sail The Blue

Captain Claude Dussaud | Cénou Skipper | Sail The Blue


I have sailed many miles with my wife and our two daughters, crossing from East coast of the United States to Syria and back and cruising areas as far north as Newfoundland and and as far south as Barbados. While I ran charters out of Newport, RI for ten years both solos and crewed, I am now back out cruising and setting sight on helping others reach their cruising goals through instructional passages.

Additionally to my years of sailing and cruising I have extensive experience teaching sailing to adults and worked in a team building program at the University of Virginia.
