Clarence Vautier Jr. was born in 1972 in La Poile, Newfoundland. He moved away to attend high school, and after high school he fished with his father, Clarence Sr., and his brother Raymond for a short time. Upon completion of school at the Nautical Institute of Nova Scotia in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, Clarence obtained employment with Biorex Atlantic Inc., and he took many voyages on fishing vessels on the east coast of Canada.
In 1994, he enrolled at the Institute of Fisheries and Marine Technology at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John’s, where he studied navigation. He later went to work as a deck officer on the Great Lakes, first for P & H Shipping, then for Algoma Central Marine, where he remains today.
Clarence Vautier currently resides in St. John’s with his wife, Marina, and their son, Brandon Daniel.
