Captain Jeannette DeFriest
Jeannette has sailed boats big and small, from day sailing dinghies, to crossing the Atlantic from the Virgin Islands to Croatia. Her background in architecture paired with a tired old boat is how she began to play with fiberglass and epoxy. She owns a rebuilt J/29 which she sails short-handed and has been renovating an Elite 37 this winter. DeFriest is a graduate of West System's Fiberglass Boat Repair Workshop; the infamous "Glue U."
