Meet the Crew

Tim Schaaf

Tim has skippered charter boats professionally and taught sailing since 1988. On board Jet Stream, Tim will lead you on a memorable sailing vacation, or guide you to your American Sailing Association (ASA) Certification up to the bareboat and catamaran cruising levels....or both!

Tim's youth was spent in a number of different countries; indeed, he learned to sail while traveling in England. For several years, he cruised the Californian and Mexican coasts, and also managed the prestigious Marina Cabo San Lucas, located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. He has interwoven his sailing career with a parallel career as a golf professional. Formerly Stanford University's Head Golf Coach, he has also directed an internationally acclaimed golf school and pioneered leading-edge teaching technology. His teaching and coaching career has taken him to Mexico, Japan, Germany and the Dominican Republic, in addition to the United States. He holds a BA from Harvard University.

Although the BVI, Jet Stream's principal area of concentration, is not a hot-bed of golf, Tim will be happy to design a cruise through islands that feature golf, such as St. Croix and Puerto Rico, for guests who would like to blend sailing and golf vacations

Tim enjoys sharing his love of the laid-back life of catamaran cruising with their guests. He will be happy to quietly facilitate a private vacation-of-a-lifetime, or he will actively involve guests with as much of the operation of Jet Stream as they might enjoy, or he will offer formal or informal instruction. In any case, Tim is determined to make time spent aboard Jet Stream a high point in the lives of their guests. Tim is also excellent on the keyboard and will happily entertain guests with his 88 key Yamaha electronic keyboard if they ask...read more

 March 2015
Ours was a cruise and learn charter for myself and my wife, on Jet Stream, a Leopard 45 Catamaran captained by its owner and ASA instructor, Tim Schaff. We were on board Jet Stream for 10 days, during which time our goal was to complete ASA Certifications 101, 103, 104 and 114, having already done the small keel boat sailing portion of 101 at Bitter End Yacht Club over two days before we boarded Jet Stream.

I would recommend this approach to others, as we were able to achieve our goals, and to truly prepare ourselves for future bare boat chartering, but it took a lot of work and very long days. How other sailing schools claim to get folks, in groups of 6-8, through this coursework in 5-7 days I do not know, but I truly cannot imagine that even the best students really learn the material in such a short period, no less receive the essential hands on experience.

Tim Schaff is simply one of a kind in terms of his level of expertise, his effort and his attention to detail. I cannot imagine getting this much learning done with any other instructor. Maybe more important, Tim was not satisfied with just helping us to pass the tests or to do single repetitions of the basic or requisite skills Tims goals was to make us into competent sailors, and, more specifically, into Catamaran sailors. He worked with us tirelessly, from 8am to 11pm or later every day (we were up for it), to make sure that we were learning the materials and enjoying the experience. He made sure that we were hands on sailing, doing multiple repetitions daily and adding levels of challenge daily. He truly did an outstanding job for and with us. Also, Tim is an unusually bright and interesting man with decades of sailing experience on monohulls and cats in all types of conditions.

Tim is Harvard educated, was the Mens Golf Coach at Stanford for almost a decade, has lived all over the world, and is remarkably warm and accessible. I really feel like my wife and I made a friend, and I look forward to sailing with Tim again and to staying in touch with him. Jet Stream is both a crewed charter catamaran and Tims home. As a result, the boat is fully equipped with numerous extras that you do not always find on a charter, including a generator, air conditioning, and a water maker. The yacht was meticulously cared for and could not have been in better condition for a cat of its vintage. Tim takes particular care to make sure that salt water is not allowed into the cabin areas and that the air conditioning and ventilation are used to keep the boat dry and fresh smelling.

The BVIs are a perfect place to do the sailing and learning that we did. Our charter was during an unusually windy period, with sustained winds from 20mph -30mph, so we were not able to sail comfortably upwind to Anegada, but were able to find comfortable sailing and mooring all across the BVIs. In the end, our charter was really all about Tim and our interaction with him as our captain/ASA instructor. We took the course as a couple, and we were a challenge, I think, as we presented somewhat different learning styles and levels of interest, but Tim was indefatigable, and we both ended up both doing very well. Anybody that is serious about learning to sail or to sail cruising catamarans should want to spend time learning from Tim Schaff on Jet Stream.

I look forward to sailing with Tim again.

 Outrageously Beautiful
Dear Tim,

Carlos and I have come up with 2 words that might begin to describe the BVI's and they are OUTRAGEOUSLY BEAUTIFUL. This sail has been one of the most fantastic vacations we've ever experienced.

Thanks so much for a great trip and some brisk sails. We very much appreciate your laid back demenor and admire your life style. You are one lucky dude!

Fondly, Carrie & Carlos F

 ASA Sailing Instructions Charter
Dear Tim,

It has been an honor and a privilege to sail with you. Your clear and concise instructions was invaluble and your coaching experience was obvious and I was the beneficary as I feel confident that I will be OK skippering in the BVI. May I say that you are unfortunately one of a vanishing breed of gentlemen/yachtsmen, and I thank you for the experience gained and the lessons learned. My very best, Phil R.

 \"Red Neck\" Group goes sailing
Thanks for exposing the "Red Neck" group to sailing and the BVI. The experiences will be remembered forever. Thanks for the friendship. Kirk & Sally C.
 Completely relaxed!
Dear Tim,

We enjoyed this trip immensely. Your boat is beautiful and your knowledge of the islands make the experience one of the most memorable ever.

Thanks for being such a great captain. Your relaxed approach made us able to relax completely and truly enjoy the entire experience.

Best of luck to you.

Fair winds and following seas, Jeff and Karen

 A memorable vacation
This was a fantastic charter with even better hospitality. We have been anticipating this cruise for a long time, and it was better than I could have imagined. Thnk you for making this such a memorable vacation.

Andrew D.

 Fabulous time
We knew how much Em, Andrew & Taylor would enjoy this experience when we took our 1st voyage on JET STREAM and they did. Not only did they but Peter and I did also. After learning the ropes the 1st time, I was completely at home this time. Kudos to the Captain, we had a fabulous time. Mary Lou and Peter
 GOLF and SAILING
Tim,

You inspired me to play college golf. It was honestly a life changing conversation that we had. I promise that I will work on everything we talked about and try as hard as I can to get into Stanford or another great college. I will definitely stay in touch about the golf.

 First time on a boat
This was our first time on a boat and . . . it was been THE BEST! Thanks for your amazing guidance and kindess - you'll see Itolang onboard soon!!

 Love the island hopping
Ahhh . . . nothing like two teenagers trapped on a boat with their parents for 3 nights and 4 days... no computers, no iPhones, no texting, no television. We all got caught up on plenty of sleep, and lots of laughing, lingering over breakfast drinking coffee, with great conversation. Loved the island hopping - we love Anagada and "Cow Wreck" beach and restaurant. We even had a night sail getting to Jost Van Dyke island. Lots of fun helping out on the boat and taking in the character and beautify of the BVI's. Let us know when you're in Annapolis or Maine! Jim, Marta, Eric & Sarah
