Captain Glen

Glen Williams holds a US Coast Guard 100 ton Master Captain License and lives with his wife on board their boat "Sirena Gordita" in Sausalito.  Glen has been in and around boats for most of his life.  As a boy Glen spent time on his uncle's famous schooner "Talofa" in San Francisco Bay. As a young man he worked for a number of years as a commercial fisherman in Alaska following the herring runs from Sitka to Nome in the spring then following the salmon runs all the way back to Southeast Alaska.  He sailed FJ's at University of California Santa Cruz and shortly thereafter he and his wife bought their first liveaboard sailboat and logged countless days exploring the San Francisco Bay.  Over the years Glen has completed boat deliveries up and down the California coast; he has sailed the Chesapeake Bay; explored the San Juan Islands by boat; and completed several sailing trips in Mexico - including the invigorating trip from Huatulco to Guatemala and El Salvador alongside the season's first named hurricane.  Glen is an easy going and fun-loving captain who is always thinking of ways to share his love of being on the water with guests in a casual and safe environment.
