A native of Huntington, Long Island, Jerry Nigro, began sailing during his high school years. He purchased his first sailboat, a Venture 17 while still in his 20’s. Several sailboats later, he settled into his current boat, a Skye 51 cutter.
The love of sailing and the seas has taken him on numerous voyages around the harbors, bays and Sound of Long Island. After his first ocean passage from Bermuda to Baltimore he was hooked on ocean sailing.
Jerry will regale us with tales of his latest year long Atlantic Circle cruise when he sailed from Long Island in May, 2014 to Portugal and returned home in June of 2015. Awaiting him there was his wife, Cynthia, three grown sons and a 15 year old daughter.
