Tom Dove is a writer and photographer based in Annapolis, Maryland.
Annapolis calls itself "America's Sailing Capital" and that's about right. It is connected to recreational sailing like no other place in North America and you can find any sailboat dealer, supplier, event or craftsman you want here. Naturally, there are lots of powerboats in this city on the Chesapeake Bay, too.
Tom plays 12-string guitar and his wife, Kathy, plays Dobro. They sing traditional and modern folk music in local jams and song circles.
Tom's primary career was teaching physical science, biology, photography, graphics and computers, most of it at Bowie High School in Bowie, Maryland from 1967 to 1993. Retirement from that did not mean he stopped working.
Tom has been a professional journalist for SAIL Magazine, Chesapeake Bay Magazine and many other boating publications for more than 25 years, with a total of more than 1000 published articles. He has written and edited travel guides, cruising guides and two books and also worked on a PBS television show. Assignments have taken him over much of the United States and Europe.
