Roger & Linda Londberg
Roger Londberg is both Captain extraordinaire and ship's bartender aboard Dalliance. He loves to sail and to share the mono-hull sailing experience with others. Roger holds a US Coast Guard Masters License with a sailing endorsement. He is from Portland Oregon and started sailing in 1996. Roger has clocked hundreds of hours sailing in the Pacific Northwest. He has sailed for fun and professionally, delivering sailboats up and down the Oregon/Washington Coast. In 2006 Roger opened River City Sailing, a sailboat brokerage company. He became the Catalina Yachts Dealer for Oregon, SW Washington and Idaho. As part of his service to customers, he gave lessons in sailing and boat handling. As captain, Roger's first commitment is to safety. He is an expert sailor and provides hands on instruction in the art of sailing. Roger enjoys life and enjoys his role as bartender on Dalliance, serving up tasty cocktails including his signature cocktail "The Dalliance."
Linda Meadows started sailing in 2003. She and Roger started sailing together in 2005 and married in 2008. Linda was hooked from her first sunset sail on the Columbia River. Linda grew up in Portland, Oregon where she was employed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. After 25 years, she decided it was time for a career change. Starting a sailing charter business seemed a bit eccentric but because Roger and Linda love sailing, they set their course for the Virgin Islands and started their charter business. Linda has spent her life helping others and she brings with her a compassionate spirit and a love for fun and laughter. Linda has always loved cooking and entertaining and is the hostess/chef on Dalliance. She has refined her menu so that every meal is a tasty treat. Linda also loves to help out topside and acts as first mate on Dalliance.See reviews

You have brought full circle the journey that began thirty years ago when I came to the Virgin Island to work on charter sailboats. And this time I was able to receive the incredible gift of your hospitality and to be a guest! At a time in my life when I'm rediscovering the Spirit and inner joy, the two of your have brought my three month sabbatical to a brilliant conclusion. In addition to providing the excellent sailing, you two have been a gift in many ways.
Roger: A calm, sure presence in the midst of howling Christmas winds, a patient and wise teacher; the epitome of grace when sailing; provider of dozens of beverages; griller and ongoing dishwasher, guide to fabulous rock and rollers. And a man with kind eyes that see so much.
Linda: Consciously seeking to be a positive force in the world, creator of delicious and healthy food, a funster and a jokster with a contagious laugh and a giver and glower, beautiful from the inside out.
You do this work with so much heart and generosity. Thank you so much for giving me this week of sheer heaven.
I can't imagine a better way to take in God's glory as expressed in the Caribbean then sailing with Linda and Roger on The Dalliance.
What a magical week on your magical boat. This has been the BEST kind of dalliance! From the moment you warmly welcomed Maggie and me aboard, your lovely boat has felt like home for this week in paradise. Thank you for the delicious meals, the smooth sailing, the dinghy shuttles, the memorable music and the lively conversations. I will remember these peaceful, restorative and inspiring days with a smile on my face. Fondly, Deanna"
Absolutely LOVED our short little July 4th weekend sail with you guys! Thank you for welcoming us into your home and making us feel comfortable, at ease and WELL FED! You guys are a great team and our little baby Milania loved hanging out and playing with you guys! We just truly enjoyed this excursion. We will definitely be back and we will definitely refer our friends on ST Thomas to sail with you guys on Dalliance. Here's to good times, good drinks, great conversation, great food, great music (and the A to Z game!) and great sailing! Cheers, Peace and Love, Anthony, Jessica and Mila Jones."
Have you ever wondered what the perfect vacation is?
-A steaming cup of morning coffee while sitting on the bow of a beautiful sailboat, looking out at the tranquil waters, watching the blue,greaen colors as they lap at the side of the hull.
- An expertly prepared shrimp omelet with fresh breads and fruits of the islands.
- A sootihng 3 hour sail, while learning for the first time all of the intricacies of being a Captain on the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
-An amazing lunch, expertly prepared, filling the stomach so well that the eyes become heavy with the possibilty of a nap not far away.
-Snorkeling a reef where at times you felt as if you were the onely ones witnessing the colorful corals and vibrant species of fish.
-Afternoon cocktails of the day, refreshing the taste buds before cooling the body.
-An evening goumet meal of freshly grilled Mahi-Mahi.
-A perfectly balanced wine that chased away any fears or inhibitions opening the mind to stimulating conversations and laughs.
These words do not come close to explaining a beautiful week aboard Dalliance while Roger and Linda catered to our every want and need, always displaying genuine smiles! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything Roger and Linda. Thank you for the new friendship and I hope our paths cross again. And when they do, the tears in our eyes will flow with beautiful memories from our "Brief Love Affair" aboard your amazing home in the Islands! ALL OUR LOVE, Deand and Tina"
I have run out of adjectives to describe our charter. Roger and Linda are perfect host. They anticipated our every want or need. We were waited on hand and foot. The meals...oh the meals were WONDERFUL! Linda is so talented in the galley.
It is obvious from the condition of Dalliance that Roger and Linda are proud of their home. Everything on board was ship shape. Not a speck of dust or dirt anywhere. They were constantly cleaning everything.
Roger and Linda are a very competent Captain and First Mate. They both have years of experience on the water and we were confident in their abilities throughout the charter. On one of our sail days we had pretty stiff winds and 8 foot waves and we were very comfortable with Roger and Linda in control. Did I mention we had a wonderful trip??
We visited the Baths early and had the whole place to ourselves. Thanks Roger. Willy T's, Oh what can I say about our visit to Willy T's except it was as fun and we had heard. The snorkeling at the Indians was incredible.
All in all it was a trip of a lifetime thanks to Roger and Linda.

Thank you so much for an amazing sailing vacation! We loved so many things! Marty named sailng the boat, learning to paddle board, delicious drinks and grilled pork chops as some of his favorites. My (Donna) favorites are snorkeling, seeing the 2 giant puffer fish;, watching for turtles and watching the pelican diving! We both loved the "pirate show", watching the tarpin feeding on Saba Rock and of course our 2 favorite places, Peter Island and Bitter End beaches! We appreciate your gracious hospitality, wonderful meals and safe sailing! May God richly bless you both. Marty and Donna
Charter date 12/28 through 1/4
One word to sum up our trip -- AMAZING!! We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable honeymoon. You both helped make it a great memory we'll always cherish. If we didn't say enough on our trip, the food you make Linda is delicious, great drinks Roger and loved learning about sailing/life on a boat. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the hospitality and showing us the "good life" even if it was ony for 8 days. You've always got a place to stay in NYC and looking forward to those instagram posts! Love Oliver and Jaclyn - July 2015"

It's been such a pleasure to be in the BVI and to be on the Dalliance. The trip was everything I hoped it would be from the sights seen, the sailing, the food and your hospitality. Thanks for making Mike's birthday special. You both have been wonderful at teaching the ways of the water since it is all new to me. Good luck with all your future sailings and charters.
