Mark Elliott works out of Nantucket and Newport in the Summer and St. Maarten and St Bart's in the winter thanks to his fleet of aircraft and a helicopter that he pilots himself. He became a captain in Florida while still in high school, and delivered a yacht to Alaska at age 18. As captain and fleet manager for Bernie Little, he commanded a series of 14 yachts, all named "BIG EAGLE". One of these was renamed "NADINE" and its demise was re-enacted in the Hollywood film, "The Wolf of Wall Street". Mark shares with us his account of what really happened that fateful night as well as his thoughts on yachting in the age of Covid.
