Sam & Rosemary

Sam and Rose are a fun, energetic couple with a shared lifelong love of sailing. They bring their shared skills and experience on the water and in the galley together to create an unforgettable vacation for their charter guests.

Captain Sam grew up in the middle of Cairo, Egypt. In the summers he learned to sail and windsurf on Martha’s Vineyard at his mother’s childhood home, and learned to dive in the Red Sea at the age of 14. After working for several years as an electrical engineer, Sam decided to head to sea. He bought his first “big boat”, a 51 ft monohull, in 2007. He sailed from New England to the Grenadines and spent the next several years running charters in the Caribbean from Bequia to Anguilla, sailing back north to the US every hurricane season.

Sam has lived in and explored the Virgin Islands since 2010, working as a sailing instructor and charter captain. Additionally, Sam is a licensed PADI scuba instructor, and loves introducing even the greenest beginners to SCUBA diving!

Chef and First Mate Rose can’t imagine a life away from the ocean. Hailing from Boston, MA, she grew up down the street from the harbor and spent many happy summer days tide pooling and snorkeling in the murky waters of Cape Cod. She took her first free sailing lesson at the age of 8, quickly taking to the sport and returning to the same community sailing center every summer. She started teaching there at 14, and over the next 10 years went on to hold a multitude of positions, from environmental educator to regatta and event management to creating adaptive programming for the disabled. While looking for a teaching job in the fall of 2011 a friend convinced her to drop everything and help deliver a boat from Annapolis to St Thomas. Upon arrival, Rose decided that she liked big sailboats, warm clear water, and Sam. The choice to stay was easy...read more

Sam and Rose have worked together in the Virgin Islands for the last four years, first managing and teaching at a sailing school, then working as a captain and chef team since 2014. They quickly made their mark in the charter scene, becoming one of the busiest and most popular crews in the Virgin Islands by the end of their first season. Rose applies her natural perfectionism to creating a healthy, fresh menu suited to your exact needs and desires, and provides a culinary experience that looks beautiful, tastes delicious, and makes you feel good! Sam has a knack for finding the best anchoring spot, and never says no to “one more run on the tube!” They are committed to creating your ideal vacation, whether that means scuba and hiking all day, sitting in the floating island with a cocktail, enjoying unplugged time with family, or dancing all night at the bar or on the bow. Welcome aboard Blue Moon!

Reviews for Blue Moon with Sam & Rosemary:

Sam and Rose could not have been nicer or more accommodating to our group. From the moment we stepped on board we felt at home. They provided the perfect amount of 5 star service. Sam is the perfect captain, always finding the best snorkeling spots and getting there at the right time. We felt very safe with him. And Rose' chef skills are actually unbelievable. We had a somewhat varied group with their likes and dislikes. Rose pleased everyone! And 3 weeks after our trip we are still missing her meals! We thought we'd be having more meals on shore during our charter but honestly we never wanted to leave the boat! We felt like we made great friends over the week.

Blue Moon was perfect for our group. The bedrooms were surprisingly spacious and the various decks and seating areas had more than enough room for 5 adults! We could spread out in our own areas or socialize together. There were also plenty of shady areas to get out of the sun. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The rooms were cleaned every day, with an occasional towel animal left on our bed! We loved the rafts and floats and didn't use the other stuff but could have.

We are still all talking about the meals! We really couldn't believe what Rose made in that kitchen. Everything was made from scratch, every sauce, marinade, pastry, bread. We felt very spoiled. We felt healthy after our week on board. Even with the added rum punches and painkillers! The meals were beautiful works of art, we took pictures of most of it (and Sam's napkin folding!). Just can't say enough about it!

The itinerary was absolutely perfect! We did so much more than we expected. It was nice not having to make too many decisions on where to go. We just went where Sam and Rose felt we would have fun! They were spot on - a perfect mix of snorkeling spots, beach bars, floating on the raft areas, the secluded beaches of Anegada. Amazing! They had organized a rental car there and Rose took us around the island. Things like that really made the difference. We were spoiled in a way we weren't used to.

100% happy with Sailing Directions! And I have already recommended you all to others. Just a 5 star service. Always emailed me back within a few hours.

This was our first charter and we were nervous with all the unknowns, but after this experience with Sam and Rose on Blue Moon we are absolutely considering another trip.

At each beach bar or restaurant we went to, we would strike up conversation with other sailors and charter captains. Every person told us how lucky we were to be on Blue Moon with Sam and Rose! And we knew that as well. But to have that wonderful reputation around the islands is such a tribute to their hard work and desire to provide people a trip of a lifetime! We hope we have more than one trip with them!

Caroline S, aboard Catamaran Blue Moon sailing the Virgin Islands

Sam & Rosemary did an amazing job and we were so happy that they were our Captain and Chef. Sam was so accommodating to our water activities especially taking our Daughter and Son-in-law scuba diving several times and at night. He took us to some of the best beaches and bars so now we have many fond memories to enjoy. He seems to be well respected by his peers and a very seasoned Captain. We have never seen two people work so hard, from morning to late night. If we ever do this again they would be our first choice for a crew.

Blue Moon is a beautiful boat, very clean, nicely decorated. We felt like we could have our own space at times to go read, relax and be alone or watch Sam sail the boat. As far as a best feature of the catamaran, we felt all the water activities that we were able to enjoy were amazing and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Slept like babies!

We can't say enough about Rosemary's menus and how she accommodated all our dietary needs from Vegans to meat lovers. Having to cook two different meals for every setting was telling of a wonderful cook. Her homemade cinnamon rolls were to die for and she even made them vegan so we all could enjoy them. So many delicious meals that we all gained some weight but it was well worth it. Like being at a 5 star restaurant! THANKS ROSEMARY!

John at Sailing Directions was always available to talk to and answered all our questions.

Sam and Rosemary were in constant contact with us before our sail to make sure they had all our requests and needs fulfilled. Thanks to Sam and Rosemary for taking us to the best spots in the BVI's!

We had a wonderful time!
Our charter met our expectations. We had a wonderful time!
Sam & Rose were excellent hosts! Sam was an extremely knowledgeable Capt. who procured the best anchoring spots at all of our destinations!
Rose is an OUTSTANDING chef, first mate and hostess! We are still raving about the food! Roses meals were healthy, delicious and creative! Simply fabulous!!!
Blue Moon was clean and well maintained. We were in the Master State room which was roomy and very comfortable.
This was our first BVI charter. We enjoyed the pace. Sams & Roses itinerary took us to all the popular destinations. Going forward on our next charter we can plan our itinerary so it suits the destinations we liked the best. We enjoyed Rose and Sam and found them easy to be around. Roses food was amazing and Sams detailed knowledge of the BVIs is extensive. He goes the extra mile to get you in the preferred anchorage locations.
Sam did his best to make sure (2) passengers on our trip where comfortable, as they were worried about too much boat movement and getting sea sick. He went out of his way to find good anchoring positions especially for night time.

New Years 2015/16
Our family of four recently took a seven day New Year's British virgin islands cruise on the Blue Moon catamaran. It was a truly wonderful experience!

The Blue Moon has three guest suites, a spacious indoor salon with a widescreen television including a large selection of recent movies in addition to DirecTV, an aft dining area, a flybridge with large padded seats, and a very large area in the front of the boat with several seating spots including two trampolines, 2 large bean bags, and sunken benches. Plenty of cozy spaces to congregate, sneak off for solitude, or stargaze at night.

While the boat is very luxurious and well appointed, the real treat is the service provided by the crew. First the food: prior to our cruise we were asked about our food and beverage preferences, which we provided by email. Interesting and delicious appetizers, specialty drinks, and combinations of food that we had never experienced before.

We must also mention that the boat is incredibly clean and fresh.
The Captain would conduct a breakfast meeting every day showing us where we were on a map and outlining the myriad possibilities that lay before us for the day, then let us chose our own itinerary. We never really had to cruise more than an hour or two to get to our next destination. We could find an isolated beach, snorkel, float on the large inflatable, waterski, wakeboard, paddleboard, swim, sun, hike, enjoy happy hours or after dinner cocktails at a festive beach bar, or just do nothing and lounge about the boat.
We cannot more highly recommend an excursion on the Blue Moon. We greatly look forward to our next opportunity to sail with them.

Christmas 2015
We brought our seats to the full upright position as wisps of white cotton passed our window, seemingly suspended in the blue Caribbean sky. Those clouds and some sandy beaches would be our white Christmas this year. The final approach to St. Thomas came with great anticipation for what we expected to be a very special family holiday aboard Blue Moon. This yacht charter would be our sixth in the British Virgin Islands and would mark our return to catamarans after two monohull trips, as well as a return to St. Thomas for embarkation versus Tortola.

The tone of the trip was set early, our crew having arranged private transportation (an Escalade no less) instead of the usual multi-stop cattle call vans that dominate St. Thomas airport arrivals. We soon learned that this level of attention would typify our experience all week. The crew were waiting for us when our driver pulled up to the dock at Red Hook, and they escorted aboard the most beautiful yacht in the harbor.

Blue Moon has that look and feel - you know, the kind where you feel a sense of pride of being a part of something better than the rest of humanity must endure. Our catamaran boasted a length of 56 feet and an even more impressive width of over 31 feet, providing volume and spaciousness unsurpassed in our experience. What a delight it was to have so much space on each side of the beds rather than have to climb and crawl into the space. Of course before the week would end, our seeming arrogance would be humbled by some mighty expensive and large hardware that shows up in the BVI for the holidays. However, we would never trade Blue Moon for any other boat, and we were quite certain that no other vessel was as clean and well maintained as ours, not to mention the decorative touches that helped to complete our holiday. The boat was adorned with Christmas lights, wreaths, and other decorations, and the crew even had gifts for us on Christmas morning! A delicious and quite moist turkey dinner was so appropriate for our familys traditions, but it must be noted that all the food and service was over-the-top great all week long.

One of the many highlights of our trip was our vessels underwater blue lights, nightly attracting large gatherings of tarpon and other interesting creatures.
What are the holidays without football? Not to worry because Blue Moon features satellite TV and Wi-Fi.
We had requested a combination of quiet, secluded inlets and popular harbors, and we were not disappointed. It would be hard to do any better than our anchorage directly in front of the Soggy Dollar Bar in White Bay, where Blue Moon dominated the live webcam for 24 hours, and we took turns waving to our friends at home and toasting our Painkillers.

Re-entry to the real world is always difficult after such a relaxing vacation, and the atmosphere surrounding STT departures makes it even more challenging. Even so, our stress was alleviated by the memories of a wonderful week aboard Blue Moon.

Thanks you being a part of our vacaton and becoming terrific friends. WE cannot wait to come again! Please come see us!!!

Where do we begin, this was the most AWESOME adventure. You're presence was fantastic. I loved the morning discussions with history of the BVI and where we were going and what we were going to do. The food was probably the best we've ever had on vacation. I found my new love ...DIVING! Thanks so much to the two of you for being patient with me. Thank you for everything!!!

Dear Captain Jack and Jaimey, thanks you for the most incredible adventure!! I don't think I will ever be able to put into words how fantastic this trip has been.

The trip experience was beyond our expectations.

The boat was terrific, the weather great, the islands varied, but what really made it special was the Captain and his First Mate.

Jaimey and Jack were nothing short of great.

Jack understands how to make you feel welcome and safe. He is knowledgeable and skilled. Jaimey's food was delicious, varied, and her presentation was first class. And she can also sail. They were a great team.

They worked hard to ensure that we were happy and we were indeed.
Your recommendation was spot on perfect.

February 2015
Blue Moon was the perfect catamaran for our group! It has lots of outdoor space with sun and shaded areas. Lin's favorite spot was on the bow reading a book in the bean bag chair! We loved the fly bridge day and night; whether watching Captain Jack & Jaimie sail or looking up at the stars! Lots of stable wide deck space to walk around with hand rails. The interior was light and airy as well as immaculate and decorated beautifully. The cabins were comfortable and spacious with lots of storage, and the heads were super clean and worked very efficiently. The linens were of high quality as well as the towels. The scuba equipment was up to date and clean. Overall Blue Moon is a gorgeous yacht and I could see why it won Best in Show!

Jaimie's meals exceeded our expectations! We are all foodies and each meal Jaimie prepared was so delicious. A great variety of dishes were beautifully prepared and presented and we never went hungry! She is also a great bartender and made delicious cocktails! The wine selections were a pleasant surprise!

Captain Jack is an ace sailor! His background and credentials are impressive and we felt very comfortable in his abilities. We loved Jack's stories and our morning meetings of planning the day's activities and reviewing where we've been! He went above and beyond to make sure we were all having a great time. He is also an excellent scuba buddy! He has a great sense of humor and was a lot of fun.

First Mate/Chef Jaimey is an absolute delight! She made sure we were always comfortable and always had a smile! She took great care in reading our food/beverage preferences and adhering to them. The galley was always clean and yet these home made delicious dishes meal after meal came out! I wondered if she had a magic wand! She certainly knows how to whip up a cocktail too! She's an impressive sailor and easy to have a conversation.

Jack & Jaimey make a great team and made us feel immediately at ease from the moment we met them. By the end of the trip we felt like we were leaving good friends!
January 2015
Our group had a wonderful time on the Blue Moon catamaran! The boat was very comfortable and clean. The rooms were spacious and the walk-in showers were awesome!

The best part of the Blue Moon is the crew. We absolutely loved Captain Jack and Jaimey! They were so much fun and always made us feel comfortable. We were so spoiled with Jaimey's cooking. Even the picky eaters on our boat loved every meal. None of us ever even opened the snack cabinet. Being our fifth charter we thought we had seen and experienced everything the BVI had to offer. Boy, were we wrong! Jack and Jaimey were over the TOP!!! The food was incredible, even dangerous Dave was impressed! Best Ahi Tuna I have ever had!

Jack is such an experienced Captain and was always eager to teach us about sailing. Thank you so much for letting us sail and drive the boat. You are an amazing sailing instructor Captain Jack.

Jack and Jaimey were also very good about planning our itinerary and giving us great options. The trip was so memorable thanks to them. I would highly recommend this boat and especially this crew!
New Year 2014/2015
Jaimey and Captain Jack are absolutely unparalleled hosts. They think of everything, and make you feel completely at ease. We had coordinated and emailed several times before the trip and spoken to Captain Jack once to firm up details about 3 weeks prior to our trip, and literally from the moment we arrived, we did not feel like guests at all. They showed us all around, and made sure we knew where things were and how to use them. They had snacks and drinks waiting, and options for us to choose from that first afternoon. By the time dinner was over that night we felt like they were on the vacation with us and wed known them for a long time. They do the beds and heads so discretely each day before you even realize they were ever missing. (Theyve already made your bed and cleaned your cabin.) Captain Jack is a wealth of information about the islands and historical details about the BVI. Each morning after breakfast he gets the map out, reviews where youve been and what that days options are, and then the group lets him know their preference for the days sail & destinations. Hes happy to involve you in the sailing activities if you wish to, or you can just relax and watch. Jaimey doubles as the 1st mate and chef, and while its hard to tell which one shes best at, youll truly be wowed by her galley skills. She doesnt miss a thing on your preference sheet, accommodates different diet types with ease, and prepares and presents each meal in a way that is simply out of this world. We actually ate ashore one evening, and while it was good, we all wished we'd stayed aboard Blue Moon for Jaimey's dInner! Captain Jack sets the table each day with fresh beautiful linens, followed by Jaimey describing that meals offering as it is served. Her dishes stimulate one taste bud after another as well as plated with stunning presentations and garnishes. Truly each meal was better than the next, and just as we thought she couldnt possibly top one she would! They are so Kodak-moment-like that you almost think they are too pretty to eat. (We always took a picture first though!) You are served breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack tray with happy hour, followed by dinner and dessert. Fresh baked cookies are made many days as well. She makes many of the breads herself and has become a master of local fresh provisioning. We had a pirate themed party one night complete with costumes. They pulled together costuming and joined us. Jaimey made a pirate themed dessert that night with cupcakes and decorations and pirate inspired drinks for us too.
I really cannot say enough good things about Jack and Jaimey. We felt like family and were just as sad to leave them, personally as we were to leave the beautiful island destinations they showed us. They are game for anything, think of everything, have endless tips and recommendations, unmatched service and are the kindest and fun people we could have ever hoped would crew our vacation sail and become part of the family. There is absolutely no doubt we will be back, and the only choice for us is Blue Moon with Captain Jack and Jaimey. My only worry is that as word about them continues to travel, they may be already booked the week we decide to go.

Thank you again for an incredible week aboard the Blue Moon! We could not have had a better time and our trip with you exceeded all expectations. We keep talking about the many great meals, experiences, locations and times we hadalready too many to list and we keep remembering additional ones.You were both too gracious, helpful, fun, etc to accurately describe so I wont try but please know you two made our week extraordinary. We know there are a lot of boats, crews, and destinations in the Virgin Islands but its hard to think anyone could have been quite as terrific as you were to us. Thank you for all you did to make our time with you amazing!!

Thank you for the most wonderful experience and trip we have ever had! You both have a great trip it could be! It definitely worked! Jaimey, your cooking is fabulous and your desserts are amazing! Im not just saying that because I like dessert! You are very smart and great at finding things while snorkeling and super nice. You both are very flexible a what we want to do and the schedule.
Jack, youre a great captain. You are also very funny! Youre very relaxed and go with flow. You also have great knowledge about the ocean and youre great at story telling. I leaned a lot from both of you this week. I cannot tell you how much fun I had and honestly, if I could I would stay. You both are so bright, nice, sweet, awesome, funny, smart and overall fabulous. Thank you, thank you thank you for making this trip the best trip ever! Ill miss you both so so so much and Blue Moon is AWESOME and lovely. It was wonderful you showed me SO many new things.

"Thank you so much for what you have done and shown us this week, it has been the best holiday ever! The beautiful BVIs were made even more of an experience because of the way the two of you managed the boat and us! We have been here for 7 days and really feel we have covered a lot of water and discovered a lot of history and background to the BVI following Captain Jacks informative information. We have always felt very safe on Blue Moon and every whim has been sympathetically addressed by the two of you i.e. Pain Killers, diving, food, the tender on hand until late. The highlight, and there were so many for me (Jules), were the dives! The beaches on Anagada were idyllic and so soft and white and set a scene of paradise. The food was so spot on; healthy tasty and plentiful. The whole trip was seamlessly organized and made it easily the most relaxing and fun few days sailing we have experienced. Our best wishes for the future and hopefully we will see you soon! Thank you so much for all of this. Jaimey, what wonderful food! I dont know how you found the time to prepare it all and we just loved it."

March Charter 2014
"Thank You for making our 10th anniversary sailing trip truly spectacular. Every day was a fun adventure and every meal a celebrated event. It was hard to top the whale sighting experience at the beginning of the trip but spotting a manta ray during our 2nd dive was right up there as one of the coolest things ever. We loved the incredible snorkeling at the caves, and getting low, low, low, low at the Willy Ts!!! And have we mentioned that we Love Jaimeys cooking?! Above all, we loved our time together, getting to know both of you. We couldnt have asked for better people to guide us on this amazing adventure. May your sailing be great and your mustard not too spicy!"
Your Friends,
January Charter 2014
"Thank you Jack and Jaimey for a wonderful, adventurous trip in the B.V.I. I enjoyed snorkeling, hiking, sailing, swimming, tubing, paddle boarding, and jumping off the boat. I enjoyed eating cookies, cheeseburgers in paradise, papaya, pineapple, brownies, meatballs, desserts, and crab cakes. I really liked the briefs and listening to all your interesting stories about shipwrecks, poisoned apples, 100 year old treasure and Treasure Island. I liked sailing from island to island with Heads and Beds music and getting smashed by waves and stuck in tubes and getting thrown in the ocean and having Fanta soda!"
Your Guest,
Michael, age 9
New Years Charter 2013/14
"We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Captain Jack and Jaimey. Their comfortable, easy going style was a perfect fit for our family. We appreciate the care they took with each of us, but especially with our kids. We loved your cooking, Jaimey, and please the way you knew exactly what we liked. Jack, your lessons and talks were perfect for the audience.
We have never taken a vacation like this charter before and your introduction to what it can be will encourage us to try another in the future. Finally, knowing how much we enjoy being with the Kennedys on Dreaming On, we couldnt thank you enough for the flexibility you showed.
We wish you all the best in the 2014 season and beyond. When Boston or Maine is on your itinerary (with or without the boat) please look us up. We would love to return the hospitality."
Kindly,
Cindy, Seth, Emma, Clara, Hannah and Heath (The Lawrys)
Christmas Charter 2013

"This truly was a trip of a lifetime and we thank you so much for this life changing experience. It was wonderful to spend our Christmas with you. From Floating with the water toys, to snorkeling with the tarpon and barracuda, to Jaimeys unbelievable food, Jacks fantastic captain-ing and all the laughs we shared together, this really was a perfect week. We will miss everything about out time aboard the Blue Moon and hope to be back soon."
All the best!

What a wonderful vacation
The yacht was beautiful, comfortable and the cabins had a lot more storage space than we expected or needed. Captain Jack and Jaimey were wonderful hosts from the second we arrived at the dock to our good bye hugs. We loved how they were so engaged with our children the entire week. Every day after a wonderfully cooked breakfast that Jaimey prepared (including fresh baked breads) we were always excited to hear about the history of the place Captain Jack was sailing us to next. That was generally followed with them pointing me in the right direction on one of the beautiful islands for a run while the kids played games in the outdoor seating area in the stern. That was always followed by a short cruise to our next stop where we always swam, snorkeled or paddle boarded while Jaimey made a delicious lunch. About an hour after lunch our kids would shout out "only 4 hours til the 5:30 snack" which was always a great treat. However dinner was the best of all, (followed by Jaimey's tastey desserts) as our family sat down to reflect on our day over a wonderful meal yet still bring Captain Jack and Jaimey into the conversation.

To sum it up, everything was just perfect starting with the crew and the yacht. My wife and I have never felt so relaxed on a vacation and thankful that we did not have to make any decisions other than what bathing suit to wear or what wine for dinner. When they were not active in the water, our 4 children spent hours away from their ipads, iphones...to play countless hours of bananagrams and cards together. The tv only went on twice and once was so I could watch the heat game.

We were so pleasantly surprised by the video Captain Jack and Jaimey presented us with on our final night. It was a special gift for a special trip that we will always remember. Hopefully you got a chance to see it.

Thank you for your assistance and of course I would be happy to help out you or the Blue Moon crew in any way.

All my best, Roger

Words are not enough.our week was amazing. We has a perfect balance of partying, exploring and learning about the BVIs. The was perfect! We never had the same meal twice! You always had such a good read on what we needed and when! I felt like Paris Hilton when Captain Jack would bring a cooler of our favorite drinks to shore. I mean that only happens in moviesor on a charter with Captain Jack and Jaimey. Everyday on board was unique and opened our eyes to a new experience. We have all travelled extensively and this was by far one the best we have experienced. We feel like we gained two new friends and they were part of an experience that we will cherish forever. AccomadatingYESFriendlyYES..FunnyYES.knowledgeable.YES. Jack and Jaimey provide an experience that anyone would want to be part of. Heres to Jack and Jaimeyhere is to the most amazing week everand here is to making memories!
Cheers!!!

The most wonderful trip of our lives!
"Just a quick note to THANK YOU once again for the most wonderful trip of our lives!! You two are absolutely amazing and we had a honeymoon that was completely off the hook!! The story I find myself telling the most is how incredible it was that because of you, Laura got to experience absolutely NO compromise when it came to meal time because of her glueten allergy! Jaimey, you were amazing, how you prepared her glueten free versions of the same meal the rest of us enjoyed! That's a first for Laura and she really appreciated it.... more than you know! Jack, you are everything one could ask for in a Captain! You were very traditional, when it came to your respect for the sea and those who have braved it for centuries, yet you are totally cool and relaxed, making us feel completely safe and secure! There were so many unforgetable moments during our week with you... Willy T's, Soggy Dollar, Last Resort and the resort where we swam in the pool and the crew showed up with cocktails and snacks... ready to party! diving the HMS Rhone with Jack's tragic tale and my new favorite Dive Master was a personal highlight for me! Laura and I feel very blessed to have had you two be our guides on the most incredible adventure we have ever experienced. Thanks again for doing your part in starting our new life together with massive fun and adventure!!"
Bill and Laura
Where to start ...
"Where in the world do you start here?! Captain Jack and Jaimey were absolutely amazing. From the moment we stepped foot on board, they were catering to our every need, answering our silly questions, and just being overall fantastic hosts. Food: The food was absolutely amazing. Even though we were traveling with a group whod been on numerous charters, my wife and I had no idea what to expect. To say we were pleasantly surprised with the food would be an understatement --- we were flat out blown away. From the variety to the presentation to the quality, Jaimeys cooking was always spot on. We spent a good part of each day talking about the amazing dishes Jaimey had cooked for us and wondering how she did it in that galley. Cooking is everything in wifes family, and she must have asked Jaimey for at least 7 recipes to bring back home to her mother. Service: As I mentioned, this was my wife and Is first charter, so we had no idea what to expect as far as our interaction with the crew, etc. Our entire group instantly hit it off with Jack and Jaimey, and really felt as though we were guests in a friends house. The boat was always clean, any requests we had were met with no time spared, and Jack and Jaimey always made sure we understood that it was our boat for the week. This is huge to us, and something weve never experienced on another vacation. On the first day Jack asked if we were interested in helping out sailing, as I understand some guests just want to relax and not be involved. Once we told him yes, he put so much time and energy into not only showing us the ins and outs of sailing, but explaining how things work and why they work this way. One of the highlights of our day by far was our morning history lesson. Over coffee and breakfast every morning, Jack would bring out the maps and show us where wed been, where we were going, and the historical significance of those areas. We were all so thankful he did this as it really does help create stronger memories of the vacation since youre visiting so many beautiful areas in such a short period of time. Also, as an added bonus, Jaimey traced our route on a map for each couple and left it in our rooms on the last day. What a fantastic surprise! Finally, we are a younger group and generally stayed up late almost every night. Even though Jack and Jaimey were up at the crack of dawn every day, they never made us feel as though we needed to go bed early, not go out, keep the noise down or anything of that nature. In fact, the best nights we had onshore were those that they came and enjoyed with us. You get the point here Jack and Jaimey are a gem. Well no doubt be back with Jack and Jaimey."
Jamie and Kate
Over the top vacation!
"OVER THE TOP! They were able to answer all our questions and also gave us a brief review of where we have been and where we were going that day. Along with some history of the places. We had So much fun with Captain Jack and Jamiey. They are a great team that made this the best charter I have ever been on before and I have had some really amazing captains. They definitely made the vacation exactly what we wanted."

This is our third BVI cruise and I want to thank you for making it the best on yet! It was active, wonderful and just absolutely perfect. From the first moment, you both were gracious, friendly and concerned for our vacation. The was fabulous and Captain Jack even made us POPCORN! Thanks you so much for the wonderful diving, great snorkeling and your friendly ways. We wish you more rainbows, happy crusing and most of all blessings and LOVE!

This was such a pleasant experience for me aswell as for Barry who has been to the BVIs sailing for 20 years in a row! Barry has said this was his best week yet! Barry has been here so many times and you both gave him new things to see! Thanks again and we will be backfor sure!

Where do I begin. This was the best, relaxing, and over the top vacation I have ever had. Jaimey, you should get your own cooking show! Youre a wonderful cook and I dont know how I would ever be able to compete. Jack, you a blessing to be around. I loved everything about this vacation, words can not explain. At home, I have trouble sleeping, but this was a laid back, worry free week, I slept so much! Thank you for that! You both gel so well together and I wish you well in the future. I feel we made 2 wonderful new friends and if you are ever in Toronto, please, please give us a call! We would love to see you! You two made this trip unforgettable and I well always be greatful for that.
Thanks!

Fabulous!
"Jack and Jaimey were fabulous! They were an integral part of our entire vacation experience, and we have adopted them into our family of friends. They were so friendly, attentive, and overall accommodating. Jaimey is a wonderful, creative cook who presented delicious, healthy meals. This was our first sailing vacation, and we learned so much about sailing from Jack while enjoying his many stories. We just thoroughly enjoyed our time with them and felt like we were visiting old friends. We look forward to sailing again with them in the future."

Don and I loved the Tobago Cays. We loved the turtles, snorkeling and feel of the area. Thanks so much for making our holiday a success; it was calm, refreshing and we loved Captain Jacks take charge attitude! Jaimey, youre so sweet, and your attention to detail and overseeing everyones needs was so great. A holiday of a life time with the best Captain and 1st mate you could imagine in the Caribbean.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines, November 2010
Love Don and Carol XOXO
We will be back . . .
Jaimey and Captain Jack are absolutely unparalleled hosts. They think of everything, and make you feel completely at ease. We had coordinated and emailed several times before the trip and spoken to Captain Jack once to firm up details about 3 weeks prior to our trip, and literally from the moment we arrived, we did not feel like guests at all. They showed us all around, and made sure we knew where things were and how to use them. They had snacks and drinks waiting, and options for us to choose from that first afternoon. By the time dinner was over that night we felt like they were on the vacation with us and wed known them for a long time. They do the beds and heads so discretely each day before you even realize they were ever missing. (Theyve already made your bed and cleaned your cabin.) Captain Jack is a wealth of information about the islands and historical details about the BVI. Each morning after breakfast he gets the map out, reviews where youve been and what that days options are, and then the group lets him know their preference for the days sail & destinations. Hes happy to involve you in the sailing activities if you wish to, or you can just relax and watch. Jaimey doubles as the 1st mate and chef, and while its hard to tell which one shes best at, youll truly be wowed by her galley skills. She doesnt miss a thing on your preference sheet, accommodates different diet types with ease, and prepares and presents each meal in a way that is simply out of this world. We actually ate ashore one evening, and while it was good, we all wished we'd stayed aboard Blue Moon for Jaimey's dinner! Captain Jack sets the table each day with fresh beautiful linens, followed by Jaimey describing that meals offering as it is served. Her dishes stimulate one taste bud after another as well as plated with stunning presentations and garnishes. Truly each meal was better than the next, and just as we thought she couldnt possibly top one she would! They are so Kodak-moment-like that you almost think they are too pretty to eat. (We always took a picture first though!) You are served breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack tray with happy hour, followed by dinner and dessert. Fresh baked cookies are made many days as well. She makes many of the breads herself and has become a master of local fresh provisioning. We had a pirate themed party one night complete with costumes. They pulled together costuming and joined us. Jaimey made a pirate themed dessert that night with cupcakes and decorations and pirate inspired drinks for us too.
I really cannot say enough good things about Jack and Jaimey. We felt like family and were just as sad to leave them, personally as we were to leave the beautiful island destinations they showed us. They are game for anything, think of everything, have endless tips and recommendations, unmatched service and are the kindest and fun people we could have ever hoped would crew our vacation sail and become part of the family. There is absolutely no doubt we will be back, and the only choice for us is Blue Moon with Captain Jack and Jaimey. My only worry is that as word about them continues to travel, they may be already booked the week we decide to go.

Reviews for Blue Moon with previous crew:

We had a fantastic cruise, Jack and Jaimey are outstanding and we would highly commend them. Blue Moon is also a great boat.

Bruce B, aboard Catamaran Blue Moon sailing the Virgin Islands

Our group had a wonderful time on the Blue Moon catamaran! The boat was very comfortable and clean. The rooms were spacious and the walk-in showers were awesome!

The best part of the Blue Moon is the crew. We absolutely loved Captain Jack and Jaimey! They were so much fun and always made us feel comfortable. We were so spoiled with Jaimey's cooking. Even the picky eaters on our boat loved every meal. None of us ever even opened the snack cabinet.

Jack was such an experienced Captain and was always eager to teach us about sailing. Jack and Jaimey were also very good about planning our itinerary and giving us great options. The trip was so memorable thanks to them. I would highly recommend this boat and especially this crew!

We were happy with Sailing Directions' service and really appreciated all of the pre-trip information you provided. We appreciated the way we were able to make our payments by credit card rather than having to wire the funds.

Joyce R, aboard Catamaran Blue Moon sailing the British Virgin Islands

The vessel is truly sailing and sleeping in total comfort and style. There are areas available on the fly bridge, salon, up front near the trampoline areas in the cockpit, as well as he back deck seating for couples to have privacy and some space in addition to each of the very comfortable cabins.

The linens are top notch and the décor is so perfectly blended with the vibe in the BVI. The toilets are electric so no "pumping" to flush as most people have experienced on some boats. Blue Moon has plenty of toys and recreational equipment with a kayak, paddle board, rafts, noodles and a six person float with drink holders. The dinghy can be used to pull you behind it with a kneeboard, etc too. Snorkel gear is available and if you wish to dive or fish, they will coordinate that for you as well. There is one hair dryer on board (though you'll rarely if ever use it), and there are stocked shower gels, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers in every shower, and at the back of the boat at the top of the sugar scoop so you don't need to pack those supplies unless you choose to. I found them to be great products and smelled very nice.

The boat has wifi and satellite TV (though we only bothered to turn it on once during our trip, for the bowl games on Jan 1st). Beach towels are provided and you do not need to pack them. They stow your suitcase%luggage for you so it's not in the way and you live out of the more than ample storage space and drawers in your cabin. No one could fill all the drawer space in the spacious quarters for a one or two week trip.

Packing advice: You'll read lots of things that say pack light, but I'm telling you I travel a lot for business and pleasure and rarely over or under pack. I kept this in mind and still over packed! When I go back next year, I'm taking swimsuits, maybe 3 shorts%t-shirts%outfits and 3 beach covers plus my toiletries. Unless you are doing upscale dining at a luxury resort ashore at night, you will rarely wear clothes beyond your swimwear and the t-shirts etc. that you'll buy along the adventure.

The tours, islands, and the overall options available throughout the BVI are endless. Captain Jack and Jaimey will accommodate any place you wish to go or see, and no two tours are really ever the same. Spots I would recommend you not miss are Bitter End Yacht Club, Soggy Dollar, The Baths, and a ride ashore around Virgin Gorda. Certainly there are plenty of other choices, but these are all must see%do items on every first timers list to say the least. We also enjoyed the Marina on the side of JVD where Foxy's Taboo is. Very nice stop whether or not the bubbly pools are active that day or not. They often find just the perfect spot, bay, or cove to anchor for a delightful breakfast with a fabulous view which may include caves (you can later snorkel) or a beach you can swim to. Captain Jack will dingy you to shore for tours, to reefs for a snorkel, or to a dock for nightlife. He absolutely does not mind picking you up, no matter how late it gets. He really is the best and you feel no imposition at all.

Reviews for Sam & Rosemary aboard previous yachts:

This trip has been one of the best trips ever!

Sam and Rose are THE BEST crew one could ask for! So professional, dedicated, nice friendly persons, and so helpful, always helping others and making sure everyone was having fun. I would definitely go on another charter with them!

The boat was in great shape and very comfortable. The outdoor areas, especially the front area with the reggae music were like paradise the first day! And a great place to be while sailing.

The food was delicious, very nicely presented and according to what we had asked. Before the trip, Rose sent me an email with the menu she had prepared based on our preference sheet, which was excellent and I only asked to change a couple of things! We took pictures of the plates!

I would definitely recommend Sailing Directions to our friends.

Rossana L, aboard Catamaran Loveboat sailing the Virgin Islands

Sam & Rosemary were excellent! The boat was perfect. We particularly liked the 8 person float and spent quite a bit of time enjoying it!

The food was excellent. Rosemary definitely customized the menu to suit us and it was perfect.

The itinerary was excellent and we don't feel like we missed anything.

Very happy with Sailing Directions' service. We can't wait to come back next year.

Sample 7 night itinerary for the British Virgin Islands

Day 1
You may board your yacht at 12 Noon from Hodges Creek Marina in East End Tortola. Upon boarding you can enjoy a tropical cocktail prepared by your Captain. The Captain will then show you to your cabin while the first mate prepares a delightful lunch. After lunch, we will depart Hodges Creek and set sail for Cooper Island. Anchored in the calm waters of Cooper Island you can spend the afternoon swimming, snorkeling around Cistern Point, laying on the beach or trying out the many watersports toys we have aboard Blue Moon. Hors d'oeuvres are served round 5 pm, the chef will bring out snacks and your favorite happy hour cocktail for all to enjoy. Take in your first gorgeous sunset while relaxing on the fly bridge. After sunset, dinner is served in the main cockpit area under the stars for everyone to enjoy your first tropical calm evening in Paradise.

Day 2
After a good morning breakfast, a morning sail can take you to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. This takes roughly an hour and a half to sail and is most picturesque. Upon arrival at the Baths, you will see the most spectacular rock formations from the Batholithic period. Your Captain will take you ashore and give you a guided tour, full of history and interesting facts about the area. Only flip flops and a swimsuit are needed for this adventure! After your walk through the Bath the first mate will meet you on the beach in Devils Bay with cold drinks and your snorkel equipment. You can snorkel in and out of the giant boulders and then head back to your luxurious yacht Blue Moon for a refreshing lunch! After Lunch, we will set sail for Long Bay on Virgin Gorda where we will anchor for the night. Happy Hour cocktails and appetizers will be served at 5 o'clock. The view at sunset from Long Bay Virgin Gorda simply cannot be beaten. It is a view 25 miles down to St Thomas where the sun sets, surrounding you on the horizon are a multitude of tropical islands in the sun. Every night at sunset is dead calm here, so enjoy Happy hour with treats and cocktails and let your mind escape into paradise. It is here on a full moon that you can see each grain of sand on the seabed 15 feet below. Dinner is served in the cockpit after which the crew will turn out the lights and everyone will head up to the trampoline for some of the most spectacular star gazing you will ever see.

Day 3
You will wake up in Long Bay Virgin Gorda where we will spend the morning enjoying the crystal clear water and the 1 mile long foot-print free beach. There are no palm trees at this anchorage but collecting sea shells on the beach or snorkeling is divine. For those who are keen, the Captain will take you for a snorkel to the 'Jacuzzi,' an underwater swim through which leads you into a pool enclosed by a circular rock wall! Blue Moon will then set sail for the Bitter End Yacht club in the North Sound on Virgin Gorda. Lunch will be served upon arrival after which you will have time to go ashore and explore. We will then go for a short ride around to Eustachia Sound where we will anchor on a barrier reef with the Atlantic Ocean being the only thing in sight. Here you can go for a snorkel at one of the most fascinating spots in the BVI. The barrier reef stands up from 5 feet to 40 feet, this is where you'll see those rainbow colored fish and all the colored sponges and corals. Very few guests get to do this so make sure you are one of those few. Then, it's time to relax in the seating area on the bow looking out to the Atlantic Ocean sipping a Pina Colada reminiscing about the adventures of the day. You will enjoy a wonderful dinner prepared by your lovely first mate and with your eyes barely open, wonder off to bed for a good night's sleep.

Day 4
After breakfast we will set sail for The Dogs. For those who wish to go scuba diving your crew will arrange a rendezvous dive here. The snorkeling around the Dogs is some of the best in the BVI. The hard and soft corals are a plenty, keep an eye out for lobsters, eels and even nurse sharks. Lunch will be served aboard Blue Moon after which we will set sail again for Marina Cay for the evening. Marina Cay (Republic of Jose Cuervo) is one of the smallest of the Virgin Islands and my favorite Caribbean island. Marina Cay has a lovely beach restaurant under the coconut palms where you can relax and enjoy the tropical surroundings, or you can jump in the warm crystal clear tropical waters and snorkel round the small reef. Children as well as adults can wakeboard, kneeboard or snorkel here, but going ashore to explore this island is a big "must." After dinner, for those who fancy a night of fun, music and possibly even some dancing, the Captain will take you across the way to another of the BVI's smallest islands, Bellamy Cay. This island bares a restaurant and bar called the Last Resort where a talented musician by the name of Al performs. Al has played in the BVI's for over ten years and should not be missed!

Day 5
After a good breakfast, we will cruise to Monkey Point on Guana Island for some snorkeling. Snorkeling is wonderful at this spot or you can relax on your catamaran with your favorite book. We will only stay here for about an hour before we set sail and head down wind towards Jost Van Dyke and it's neighboring islands. This is a great sail to put out the fishing line and hope to catch a fish. Sandy Spit and Green Cay are all places of exceptional beauty. Just take your pick. Sandy Cay is a "must do" exploring adventure by foot, it is a short walk which commences on the beach and runs through thick coconut palms to a path leading up the top of a 50 feet cliff looking out to Sandy Cay, Tortola and the Atlantic. On your way back to the beach, pick up your favorite Hermit Crab friend and get ready for a high stakes Hermit Crab race. Take shoes, flip-flops, a camera and bug spray. This is one walk you will never forget. For the over-night stop, White Bay is secluded and quiet with only the Soggy Dollar Bar ashore; or Great Harbor is ideal for those who would like to visit the famous Foxy's. Let us know where you want to stay and then you can enjoy your happy hour, followed by dinner and good sleep!

Day 6
After Breakfast we will set sail for Norman Island. Norman Island was used as the back drop in the famous novel by Robert Louis Stevenson's novel "Treasure Island," and there was in fact treasure found on this island at one time. On the way, we will stop for a snorkel and lunch at the Indians. This is a snorkel not to be missed. The shallow area filled with a soft coral garden on one side with a deep penetrating wall on the other makes this one of the most versatile snorkeling spots in the BVI. After lunch we will cruise over into the Bight for the night. Norman Island is a wonderful island for hiking and exploring, you can also visit the newly renovated Pirates Bight and lounge on the beach with a cocktail and play some Jenga. This is a good place to lay back with a book in a comfortable spot aboard Blue Moon. There are many choices for happy hour in this bay just let your crew know what you want to do! Dinner is enjoyed on board under the gorgeous stars above. You may wish to visit the famous Willy T which is a Brigantine pirate ship at anchor which acts as a restaurant and bar. This can be quite a lively place at night, so if it is night life you feel you need then the Willy T is where you need to head for this evening. Otherwise enjoy the night on Blue Moon before heading off to bed!

Day 7
When everyone is up for the day, we will move the boat around the corner to the famous Caves. We will have breakfast here and then you can enjoy a nice calm snorkel. This is also a great place for water sports, so let your crew know what you want to try today! After The Caves we will set our sails for Deadman's Bay on Peter Island. Peter Island is host to Peter Island Resort which is owned by Amway. From Deadman's Bay you can go ashore and explore the resort, shop at the boutique, lay on the beach, or go for a hike. Snorkeling can be exciting in this bay as it is home to many Hawksbill Turtles and two beautiful Eagle Rays. The beach at Peter Island Resort is one of the most picturesque beaches in the BVI's so it's a great spot to take those last shots. We will enjoy a relaxing cocktail hour on the fly bridge following by a unforgettable dinner aboard Blue Moon.

Day 8
After breakfast we will set sail for Hodges Creek where we will arrange taxi's to take you to the airport or ferry for your noon departure. Fun times were had and we will miss you, so make sure you come back and visit us again next year!
