About Captain Ian

Captain Ian | Sailing Portland Maine

Sail Portland Maine started in 2019 as the result of Captain Ian Glass’ lifelong love for sailing and desire to make dreams a reality. From a young age, Captain Ian was always interested in the water and sailing. His passion stems from a long line of sailors in the family and to which Ian has created his own path in the maritime world. At 19 years old, Ian left Florida and went to crew on a schooner in Camden, Maine. After three days of sailing around Penobscot Bay he was hooked, and as they say – the rest is history.

Ian has experience crewing and captaining many different types of vessels. From private sailing yachts to commercial supply boats and his favorite, the traditionally rigged gaff schooner. His journeys saw him cooking on-board yachts for royal families and crossing all of the world’s major oceans. He will be glad to share his personal story aboard one of his two boats, explain the history of Portland, and share interesting maritime history as you sail.
