about Us


Forty years ago we developed our thirst for sailing. Thirty years ago we began quenching our thirst a little at a time by purchasing a 25’ Catalina and then a 28.5 Hunter which we sailed in the lakes close to our home. Then we discovered the magic of Caribbean sailing. We sold our boat and spent the next 20 years bare boating in the USVI and BVI’s. In 2006 we purchased a Westsail 32 and sailed 10000 miles from Seattle to Ecuador through the Panama Canal and on to Florida via Columbia, Honduras, Belize and the Yucatan. After arriving in Florida we returned to the Virgin Islands as Captain and Chef on a sailing yacht where we spent 4 years providing clients with a vacation custom built to their dreams. We became the most successful crewed monohull in the fleet. In 2013 we sailed the Greek Islands with friends we made while training them to sail. Now, family needs have required that we leave the water for now so based on our experience and our passion for the water and sailing we have decided to provide the ultimate guide for the boating enthusiast. We want to pass our expertise on to people like you wanting to experience the joy of cruising for themselves.

During our quest of sailing until 2006 we were successful management and business owners. Bob (prior to Captain Bob) was a Vice President and COO of several manufacturing companies. Debbie owned a successful mortgage company. Our professional experience and expertise will help us to build the kind of resource that will be invaluable to anyone interested in getting away from the dock. We look forward to working with you in the future to achieve your dreams
