Captain David Berson has been following the stars for years.
With no sailing background or knowledge, Berson went to sea right after graduating from college and the first ship he sailed aboard was a schooner called the Harvey Gamage.
“I was welcomed aboard because I played the guitar to entertain the passengers,” he recalled with a laugh.
