Fern Hoffmann

Mate

Fern Hoffmann grew up in Western Maryland and came to traditional sailing vessels through a love of history and hands-on work. After several years doing historic interpretation on dockside educational vessels she went sailing for a summer as a teenager and never looked back. After graduating from Warren Wilson College with a BA in History/Political Science and a minor in Appalachian Old Time Fiddling she began working full time on sail training ships around the US. When she's not stomping around and being loud on deck she enjoys playing music, letterpress printing, fiber arts, and being judgy about museum exhibit design.
