Tim & Nikki
Coming from keen sailing families in the UK, Tim and Nikki have both been fortunate enough to grow up around boats from an early age. Tim learned to sail dinghies on the Norfolk Broads whilst also spending long summer vacations with his family on their sailing cruiser around the Greek Ionian Islands. The summer for Nikki was spent with her family on their sailing cruiser around the waters of the English East and South Coasts. In 2011 it was their mutual love of sailing that took them individually to Greece to work for a flotilla company. Having begun a relationship during the season, they returned as a couple to work for a Greek flotilla company for a further two years. After sailing across the Atlantic, Tim wanted to further their career, and they sped off to work on superyachts in the busy Palma De Majorca of Spain. They soon after took up an offer to the Caribbean to take up the positions of Captain and Chef/First Mate for a luxury charter company and were originally based in Guadeloupe before transferring to the amazing British Virgin Islands. The couple work as an excellent team and complement each other perfectly, they recently became engaged on a winter vacation trip to Iceland.
Tim grew up in Norfolk and went on to university to study History, a subject that he is very interested in. He has become very knowledgeable about the local history of the BVI and is keen to share this with his guests. He has a passion for wildlife preservation and as a qualified dive master he enjoys exploring life below the waves, he knows all the best snorkeling spots and can point out the different fish to his guests. Tim is very outgoing and great fun to have around, he makes it his priority to ensure that his guests get the best experience possible while they are aboard and also that they enjoy all of the water toys that are available to them. Always keen to improve himself, he will be taking his Ocean Yachtmaster qualification in September. ..read more

Matt & Tara couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming!
Nana was a great boat, very comfortable for our group. Outdoor space was the best part of the boat.
The food was fantastic. Presentation was superb. Preferences were well customized, thanks Tara!
We tweaked the itinerary as we went along and found the best snorkeling and places to stay.
Sailing Directions were very organized and great to deal with. Information on the website was great. We would certainly recommend your services to others.

The crew were great!! Nana is comfortable and we enjoyed eating at the outside table for meals. Food was amazing! Tara did a wonderful job customized to our preferences.
You were very helpful and made it easier for us to book this trip.
Suzanne S, aboard Catamaran Nana sailing the Virgin Islands
Matt and Tara were exceptional. Friendly, helpful and a pleasure. They knew when to "fade into the background" but also were very engaged with our group. We have been numerous times to the BVI but they brought us to some wonderful snorkeling sites we had not seen before.
The boat was very clean absolutely no complaints there. Very nice boat, good spaces.
The food was AMAZING! If you like good food, go on this charter! Menu was well customized, some of us had food allergies, and Tara made some separate custom meals as good as the rest. Everything from scratch. Only problem is the few pounds we each gained for the week - well worth it. Matt is a terrific drink mixer.
Very good itinerary--and they were willing to go to the places we also wanted to see.
Sailing Directions' service was problem free and appreciated. Would recommend Sailing Directions, The Nana, and Matt and Tara without reservation.
