ABOUT Captain tony

Your instructor is Tony Hancock.

Tony has been sailing for many years. After learning how to sail with The Canadian Yachting Association in Vancouver in the 80’s and 90’s he has since sailed more than 50,000 sea miles.

After leaving Vancouver on his own boat in 2008 he sailed the west coast of California and Mexico,

visiting Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Once through the canal it was off to the Caribbean then across the Atlantic to Portugal then into the Mediterranean. 

While living on board in Malta for two years, Tony started teaching sailing courses and thus began his passion to share his enthusiasm and experience to new dreamers!

Leaving Malta it was time to head back across the Atlantic to the Caribbean where he started teaching week-long live-aboard courses and private charters. 

Captain Tony moved to Nova Scotia in 2014 and is now spreading the passion on his well-equipped Hunter 33 ft. yacht!
