Andrew & Kailee
Captain Andrew grew up in Raleigh, NC spending his summers on Lake Gaston. As a child, he developed a passion for small sailboat racing and spent much of his youth zipping around on Hobie Cats and 420 race-boats. Later, Andrew attended the University of North Carolina - Wilmington where he was the president of the university Sailing Club and actively shared his passion with other students. During college he also headed up the Bald Head Island Sailing Club in the Cape Fear region of North Carolina where he taught people of all ages how to sail and enjoy the open water. After graduation, his sailing skill helped him land a job teaching sailing on the San Francisco Bay.
Once there, He participated in many regattas including the Master Mariner's classic wooden boat regatta. While honing his skills on boats of all shapes and sizes, Andrew made the jump from sailing instructor to licensed captain. Soon after, a job offer led him to the Virgin Islands and an opportunity to experience a new side of the yachting community and gain an even deeper understanding of the wind and the water.
Chef Kailee grew up in Southern California and spent her days going to the beach and enjoying the Pacific sun. As a teenager she got a job at the local West Marine boat supply store. Already in love with the ocean, this fueled her interest and love of boating.
A natural chef, the agriculture of the Golden State provided some of the freshest, most delicious ingredients for Kailee to choose from. With local farmer's markets and fresh sea food as her inspiration, she developed a knack for fine food, many mouth-watering recipes and a passion for creativity in the galley. ..read more
Kailee and Andrew met in California, where they worked together at a local parasail operator. Their first date began by Andrew dragging Kailee along with him to go fishing and Kailee cooking up the catch afterwards! Their common love of the ocean and all things related made them fast, inseparable friends. They spent their days off together free-diving in the kelp beds of Palos Verdes and Malibu, finding exotic sea life like guitar sharks and leopard sharks.
Soon they moved to the Virgin Islands where they worked together helping to run the Water Activities department at the Westin Hotel. Andrew continued to hone his sailing skill and all things nautical while Kailee ran the shore side operations, simultaneously attaining her Divemaster Status.
Sailing charters aboard Kestrel gives them a chance to bring it all together. Now they continue to share their love of sailing and the water with guests while chartering the beautiful Virgin Islands.
Andrew and Kailee look forward to meeting you welcoming you aboard Kestrel!

Kestrel was very clean and comfortable - extremely well maintained. The cabins were very comfortable, spacious and well appointed. Loved the comfortable cushions on the front of the boat where we sat to sail.
The crew were friendly and helpful. Kailee reached out before charter to be sure she had all the information to accommodate a severe tree nut allergy. They did a nice job balancing our privacy and family time with being attentive and social.
Outstanding food and, as mentioned, Kailee worked very hard to insure no nuts in any dish. I loved the food fairy that came at each day with delicious meals
We hit all the major spots with a few secret coves and spots that Andrew let us in on.
This was a very easy process and John helpful with all my questions, helping us narrow down to a boat that would work best for our needs within the time frame and budget we needed.
This was our first experience in both the Caribbean and on a charter. We’ve set the bar high for future vacations!

Andrew and Kailee were great relating to our four 20-something aged children, and providing lots of opportunities for water sports. They were always quick to see to our needs and desires – very accommodating. Kailee did a fantastic job! Can’t believe how well she could cook in such a tiny kitchen.
