Meet the Crew

Jerry & Dawn Blair

Captain Jerry has been sailing since he was 2 years old and has sailed extensively throughout the Northeast USA, and Caribbean and has undertaken several Trans-Atlantic crossings. He holds a 100 ton USCG Masters license and is also a NAUI Scuba Instructor and PADI Divemaster, as well as a US Sailing Instructor.

One of Jerry's great loves is teaching and as an avid water sports enthusiast he enjoys sharing all his varied knowledge with friends and guests. Jerry teaches lots of SCUBA courses from first time resort courses to full or advanced diving certifications.

After residing in the Caribbean Islands for 13 years, Jerry is a good source of local knowledge and history which ensures every trip is unique, fun and interesting. He is gregarious and loves meeting people..

<b>Dawn Mottram</b> is British, coming from North Wales originally. She grew up on the coast and living by the sea she spent many happy hours with her family on boats. She passed her love for sailing onto her two children, who have taken to the sport as well.

Dawn has always enjoyed cooking for her family, friends and charitable events. She is a trained RGN nurse, specializing in pediatrics, community, and ophthalmic nursing, and has most recently worked as a medical equipment consultant.

Her career of helping people as a nurse inspired her to start fund raising for causes she believed in. As the years went on, the scale of her fund raising and the distances she went to, grew. Dawn's passion for the outdoors has led her on cycling tours through Vietnam, hikes up the three highest mountains peaks of Great Britain, and numerous sailing events such as Cowes Week. She has taken part in many long distance offshore sailing races, most notably the Fastnet Race. Her largest fundraiser generated £100,000 for Sail4Cancer. She was involved in forming the first "all female" team to compete in the Non-Stop Around Britain and Ireland Race in 2006. One of her many duties onboard was as bowman and foredeck crew but she was also the cook. Her experiences of cooking on racing boats led Dawn to produce the Swell Food recipe book, for sailing enthusiasts. All proceeds were donated to Sail4Cancer, enabling children suffering from the affects of cancer to have sailing opportunities...read more

Her passion for sailing and traveling has led Dawn from London to the Caribbean. Her European, Mediterranean, and Asian influences will win you over with regards to her cuisine but it is her caring nature, attention to detail, and constantly striving to improve that will be the lasting impression that stays with you for years to come.

Reviews for Braveheart with Jerry & Dawn Blair:

Jerry & Dawn were more attentive and accommodating that we could ever have anticipated. We felt very comfortable were incredibly well taken care of throughout our week on Braveheart. Dawn and Jerry worked amazingly long, hard days touring us around and keeping us fed and entertained. We even had Jerry take us water skiing and wakeboarding, which was an incredible experience.

Braveheart was even more nicely appointed than I expected. It is beautifully laid out and afforded us all a very comfortable experience. Having four full bathrooms with separate showers was very luxurious. Braveheart is also immaculately clean and obviously very well maintained. Dawn and Jerry worked tirelessly at keeping the boat clean and 'ship-shape'.

The food was a highlight of the trip for all. All of Dawn's meals and snacks were incredibly flavorful and imaginative. They were homemade, healthy and thoughtfully prepared to take into account our group's preferences. The chocolate gateau for Mary's birthday was gorgeous, delicious and a very special added touch. We loved the homemade cookies Dawn made us for lunches and we came to look forward to Jerry's tropical cocktails before dinner each day. Jerry's napkin-folding sessions were a fun and memorable part of our trip as well.

Our itinerary was fabulous. We covered a lot of ground, but were always relaxed. Jerry and Dawn took us to many beautiful spots including, Norman Island, Manchioneel Bay, Trellis Bay, Mountain Point and the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, Ginger Island, Peter Island and more. We loved learning about the areas we visited, the yachting life and sailing. Jerry also took us ashore on several occasions.

Jerry took us on nine incredible dives. We really enjoyed the experience of diving from and returning to our floating accommodation. The lionfish-hunting was a unique opportunity to try to fight for the health of the reef ecosystem. The onboard compressor affords great flexibility. Given the space constraints of a sailboat, Braveheart accommodates divers very well.

Our time aboard Braveheart was a singular experience for all of us. We had the trip of a lifetime. It was amazing to be able to do so much and to visit so many beautiful places without leaving the comfort of Braveheart. We recommend the experience to anyone looking for a luxurious, delicious and active sailing vacation.

We were very happy with Sailing Directions' service and felt very comfortable with all aspects of this, our first, chartering experience. We will definitely use Sailing Directions for any future charters and would not hesitate to recommend Sailing Directions and will do so whenever the opportunity arises.

We had a wonderful week on the Braveheart. Jerry and Dawn were fabulous. The accommodations were great and the meals exceeded all expectations! We had great weather, four of the passengers dove at least 4 times and we visited all islands we wanted.

 Three generations enjoy Scuba diving on Braveheart
My wifes and my experience on Braveheart exceeded our expectations. Not having done one of these before, we didn't know exactly what to expect, although some of our friends who had been on a similar charter, gave us some good insight. We had a fantastic time. I dont know if there are any changes I could suggest to make the experience any better. Jerry and Dawn could not have been better hosts. They guided us on what we should take advantage of, being so familiar with the area. They were extremely attentive to our needs and very accommodating when we adjusted plans that had been set. Jerry worked very hard balancing each of our own preferences. For me, it was scuba diving. Although, I was the only certified diver on the boat, as I mentioned previously, I was certainly satisfied with the number of dives I was able to do. Dawn worked tirelessly to make sure we were fed and our accommodations were clean and fresh. The meals that Dawn prepared were absolutely delicious. None left the table hungry. I would have zero hesitation in recommending Jerry, Dawn and Braveheart to any of my friends. Thanks and hope to do this again real soon.

 A two family group of 8 that booked aboard Braveheart for Christmas 2013
In a word, our trip was just Fantastic! One of the best vacations we've had as a family. We saw all the highlights of BVI. The boat was really clean, the rooms were spacious, and it had everything you'd want including the scuba. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to use all the toys more often. The crew was the best. Very friendly, very helpful, and very professional. Dawn is a great cook and she exceeded all of our expectations (eggs Benedict!). She even tried Mexican for the first time and it was great! David clearly was a big help to both Jerry and Dawn and he was super with the GoPro on the scuba dives and taking family pictures too. Captain Jerry is a real pro and his knowledge of the area was a real asset, especially to avoid the crowds and the swells (no one was sea sick!). He had great suggestions but never pressured us to do anything. Even his daily napkin folding lesson was optional! Glad we got to snorkel with the huge manta ray on the last day!

-----

Brian and I would echo all of the comments above. This crew was so hospitable, they really know the islands extremely well, had great time management so that we never felt rushed or bored, and made sure we got to experience all that BVI had to offer. A highlight for us was Brian catching a tuna and Dawn making it up two ways, both sushi style as well as poke style. She really tried very hard to please all pallets. The girls loved being able to wake-board behind the dingy. That was fantastic. Jerry providing great afternoon cocktails, education on the Lion Fish, and snorkeling/swimming with a man-a-ray were all pretty cool as well. Thank you again for all your work on this. It was truly an adventure of a life time and the memories will live on.

 A group of 4 couples that booked aboard in May, 2013
Back to reality has been brutal! I want to go back and have Jerry and Dawn take care of me again! We had a wonderful time- lots of laughs, activities and quiet time- what ever we wanted Jerry and Dawn made appear. The food was delicious, all our needs were met and everyone had fun. I think the best part for me was waking up every morning and smelling Dawn making breakfast. As the mother of 5- if you smell someone trying to "help" in the morning all you can think of is the cleanup you will have to do. It was so nice to have our meals announced and served - and no cleanup! And as that I am the planner for the group, it was great to have Jerry take over the reigns once we were on board. I hope this was helpful- we really had a great time- Thank you for all your help!

It iswell overdue, but I wanted to thank you for providing us a great experience. Normally it is hard to please 7 others, but everyone had a great time. A lot of memories that will solidify our friendships. I am sure you will see some of us again. Beth (my wife) is already trying to figure out how she can set up a trip with friends.

Great crew, great boat, great food, great memories.
