Joel Senger is an instructor at the International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS) in Newport, Rhode Island. Joel first studied carpentry, then enrolled as a student at IYRS when he became fascinated with the craft and heritage of wooden boat building. He now teaches students of all ages and backgrounds at IYRS, passing on his knowledge and skills to future craftsman and sailors. We photographed and featured Joel Senger for our Nautica Fall 2012 marketing campaign and Nautica Ocean to Ocean video series.
