Powell is an avid outdoors-man. His passions include surfing, fishing, diving, and of course sailing. Powell learned about the Sail Caribbean program from a friend and discovered his passion for sailing and living on the sea over the summer of 2017. He was excited to earn his sailing and diving certifications, but his favorite memory was the overnight sail to the Leeward islands. Powell is still a keen power boater and fisherman but he envisions a lot more sailing in his future.
