Meet Your Windjammer Sailing Hosts

Captain Noah Barnes & Jane Barnes

Captain Noah Barnes
A second-generation schooner captain, Noah Barnes started sailing aboard the Stephen Taber at the age of 7. His parents, Captains Ken and Ellen Barnes, were at the helm for 25 years, before their retirement after the 2003 season.

Captain Noah Barnes

Although he spent many years sailing and traveling in other parts of the world, Noah considers the magnificent coast of Maine his true home, and is thrilled to be aboard the Taber.

A native New Yorker, Jane Barrett Barnes has spent years working in the wine business with industry leaders such as Champagne Veuve Clicquot, the Four Seasons and Terlato Wines International. A bonafide landlubber, she never dreamed that when she met Captain Noah in 2002, she would eventually find herself living in Maine and helping to run an historic windjammer. Jane Barrett BarnesAlthough Jane does not go on all of the trips, she runs the office and will be happy to answer any questions you have via phone or email. She joins the Taber on the wine trips and has immensely enjoyed getting to know the coast of Maine.
