Milo Stanley

   

Milo Stanley taught himself to sail at a young age, and has spent a good part of his life building, repairing, and messing about in boats. He was a WoodenBoat School staff member for five years, working on both our waterfront and shops.  In 2011, he spent four months sailing from the Caribbean Sea to Maine on a 130’ schooner. He has an upcoming article in WoodenBoat about his experience while at Middlebury College in Vermont, building Japanese boats under Douglas Brooks. Post college he spent time cruising, and has written about it in WoodenBoat WB 275's Rime of the Youthful Mariner.  Milo has worked at various times as a house carpenter, a boatbuilder, commercial fisherman, musician, and writer. When not at home in Maine, he can be found somewhere offshore in the North Atlantic on his 35’ wooden sloop PROMISE.
