The Passion of a traveler

Jack Nye, through hard work and dedication, founded what today is Nye Manufacturing Ltd.
Back in 1952 a one man mobile welding repair outfit turned into a thriving family business with over 40 employees.
While, this is what he does for a living, his passion is sailing.
The passion for the sea lead to a sailing career with many interesting adventurous trips.
Some trips were filled with fun and joy and others were complicated and dramatic voyages through hurricanes.
Jack crossed the Atlantic 14 times in his own boats and 3 times on other sailing ships.
There were a total of 17 crossings of the Atlantic and 8 more were miscellaneous voyages.
Feel free to explore Jacks’ endeavors through life while navigating at sea and, thanks for stopping by.
