Captain Frank Jones
Captain Frank is a 20 year New Orleans “native”. He has obtained five American Sailing Association Certifications, as well as, a Moorings “Captain” designation certifying him to solo sail any boat anywhere in the world. Wishing he had more time to do so, Frank has sailed up and down the coast of California, not nearly enough Caribbean Islands, the Gulf Coast, Long Island Sound, Lake Dillon/Denver, Lake Ontario, the Florida Keys, Islas Culebra and Vieques of the Puerto Rico Spanish Virgin islands, and Ranague Cay/Belize. He currently keeps his Cruiser on Lake Pontchartrain where he can be found chasing the sunset or escaping to the Gulf of Mexico whenever the time and winds allow.
