2017 Wooden Boat Festival has ended

Robert Bergstrom

Robert Bergstrom learned compass navigation in the United States Air Force as a pararescueman while flying rescue missions in Huey helicopters, long before GPS was invented. He retired from the Portland Fire Department as a Fire Boat Pilot and provided compass, radar, and limited visibility training to new fire boat pilots. He holds a USCG captain's license, is a delivery boat skipper, and is ABYC certified. For 30 years he has sailed the waters of the Pacific Northwest. He was fortunate to learn compass repair and adjusting while working with the late Mark Anderson of Portland. Upon retirement he opened his own compass business and operates out of Port Townsend.
