As a young boy, 3/C Nicholas Burzycki was already developing his navigation skills and visiting exotic ports of call. While he and his family enjoyed a Barefoot Charters adventure through the US and British Virgin Islands, Nicholas began to imagine a career at sea.
Nicholas is a resident of Kingston, Massachusetts, a town with a rich maritime history. Kingston is home to the longest continuously run boatyard in North America. The Revolutionary War brig USS Independence was built by ship-builders in Kingston.
Nicholas is pursuing a degree in Marine Engineering.
