Lipscomb grew up in Irvington and Tarrytown, learning to swim and sail in the Hudson River. He has sailed as Captain aboard a number of 30’ to 65’ blue water sailing vessels, and completed three Trans Atlantic crossings and one Trans-Pacific crossing.
A passionate advocate for the River and life in it, he patrols the Hudson from New York Harbor to Troy, logging 4,000 to 5,000 nautical miles a year on the 36-foot wooden vessel R. Ian Fletcher to identify and deter polluters, support science research and educate the public.
