Second Mate – Joe Lengieza

     I’ve posted here over a month ago that I would be providing information about the 2009 Crew.  I will start with the officers and work my way down the chain of command.

Joe is the Second Mate.  He will be returning to the same position he was in last year.  He will also be returning to the Navigation/Communications duties he had last year.  Joe sailed in Niagara as a deckhand in years past.  His experience sailing as both an officer and deckhand on the ship will be a huge asset going into this season.   
    
 Joe is currently working on a Master’s degree in Underwater Archaeology and Maritime History at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina.  He works as a graduate assistant at the Diving and Water Safety office on the research vessel fleet.  He is also working on a model of the Sutton Hoo burial vessel and researching the evolution of sailing mechanics theory so not only is he a good sailor he is also a scholar.joe-the-intellectual
