Owner and Operator of McCurdy Sailing, David McCurdy has over four decades of sailing experience and is a licensed 100 ton near coastal Captain with a sailing endorsement. Learning to sail from his father at age 6, he has captained many boats of all sizes including Gleam and Northern Light; two 12 meter America's Cup boats. Dave is also Captain for Classic Cruises and their 78' Schooner Madeleine and their 58' Rum Runner II.
Spending a majority of his life in Newport, David's extensive local knowledge, where he also spent close to a decade as the Executive Director at the Rose Island Lighthouse, will add to your amazing adventure aboard Hurrah or First Light.
There is a reason why Newport, Rhode Island has been named the sailing capital of the world. We would love the opportunity to show you around on your own private sailing charter!
