Loretta, a Connecticut native, has been sailing professionally for over 10 years. She has visited 48 countries with no plans for stopping before she can see the rest of the world, maybe twice. She recently completed a 3 year journey from St. Croix, USVI to St. Petersburg, Russia sailing on a 115 year old classic wooden boat. When not on the water, she enjoys traveling to places like Thailand to chat with monks and photograph lovely temples. She hopes to write about her travels and is enrolled in the MatadorU course to learn to share her stories and motivate others to get out and explore this big beautiful world.
