Ocean Worx LLC started in 1998 as a group of professional mariners that dedicate themselves to providing the most comprehensive set of Marine Services to the recreational boater.

Based on the experience of many years of teaching sailing and navigation as well as the maintenance and restoration of boats we can bring a unique mix of knowledge to benefit you at all stages of learning and boat ownership.

Captain Christoph A. Winter, the President, has his roots in East-Friesland near the frigid North Sea Coast of Germany and holds a doctorate in Experimental Nuclear Physics. Over the last 25+ years he has actively cruised and raced almost everything from 8 foot dinghies to 50 foot catamarans. His background in the sciences has allowed a very thorough and methodical approach to think about and teach the concepts of sailing and navigation. Working as a USCG-Licensed Captain and Certified Sailing Instructor, Chris received the ASA (American Sailing Association) national Outstanding Instructor of the Year award three times (2002, 2003 and 2007) while taking countless students on day and night voyages up and down the Northeast Coast of the US, through the Caribbean and Central America. Chris has authored and reviewed numerous publications on marine topics and regularly presents at boating symposia. Chris is a former Executive Board Member of the Twin Lights Historical Society and has now joined the Advisory Council.

Starting his boating career at the ripe age of 8, he lists a sail exploration of the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness with his uncle as his earliest cruising experience at age 9. Andrew holds a USCG Masters License with Commercial Towing and Sailing Endorsements. He is also a USCG License Instructor and applies his advanced ASA Instructor credentials teaching on the waters of New Jersey, Delaware River and Chesapeake Bay. Andrew has organized many cruising adventures in Europe, specializing in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Andrew works professionally as a delivery and charter boat captain as well as a captain for BoatU.S. Towing Services.  In addition to is maritime duties,  Andrew is working as an Environmental Scientist dealing with the Federal Clean Air and Water Acts as well as on international environmental projects.
