DB9 Crew Profiles

TOM TANNER | Captain | American
Born and raised in Newport, Rhode Island, Captain Thomas Tanner’s experience on the water started
almost immediately. Raised sailing on his father’s sailboat, by six years old Tom spent his summers
sailing on his own optimist dinghy out of Ida Lewis Yacht Club. At fifteen years old he found himself
in his first job as a deckhand on a 101’ wooden schooner where his love of cruising
began. After participating in the Tall Ships and OpSail2000 events Tom returned to Newport, RI to
his roots of competitive sailboat racing. He was hooked, and soon travelled all over the Atlantic
Ocean and Mediterranean competing in world class ocean and maxi racing circuits with wins in
notable races such as The Heineken Regatta, Marblehead to Halifax, Newport to Bermuda Race as
well as both the 12 meter North American & World championships. It was during this time that he
began his second career at sea with formal training and climbed the ranks to Master and Unlimited
Dynamic Positioning officer on a 300’ subsea commercial vessel. However, soon the passion of
yachting and the need to travel called once again. Tom looks forward to providing you with an
exclusive and exciting holiday on board DB9.
