The Triton Crew Eye


Mate Jaryd Oliver, of M/Y Tsalta, a 130-foot Westport, sent the crew to the docks for customary “exercises” while at dock at Nantucket Boat Basin in Massachusetts.

“Just some of our junior crew doing the good ol’ radar calibration,” Oliver wrote in an email with these photos.

Crew members are Deckhand Pat Fisher and Second Stew Melanie Hittrich. Thanks to all of the crew of Tsalta for keeping yachting traditions alive.
