Meet the Crew

David & Janice Walters

David and Janice, having always immersed their family in a lifetime of outdoor adventures, moved to the Caribbean from North Carolina for their next adventure - sailing the Virgin Islands! With their two grown children and family's support they finally cut the cord from corporate America and now enjoy hosting and sharing their zest for sailing the Caribbean with each new group of charter guests they welcome aboard RS Cape.

David is a North Carolina State University graduate and has been a sales executive for leading technology companies, including Microsoft, for many years working with Fortune 500 clients. While being out on the water is his favorite activity, David is also an avid snow skier, hiker, mountain biker, and lifelong golfer. When David is off island he is likely to be hiking a new section of the Appalachian Trail or Dupont State Park, snow skiing in Park City or snowshoe or biking along the New River or Virginia Creeper Trails in Virginia. David loves to enjoy every moment of the day whether chilling out with morning coffee or getting the SUP's and kayaks out early. He will help guests make every minute of their trip count on or off the water.

Because of her love for the water, Janice always dreamed of being a mermaid..and now she gets the chance to be one! She spent a great deal of her childhood on Oak Island, NC where her family had a cottage. Janice's 1st experience sailing was at a young age with a family friend and even though that experience was a bit scary, she maintained her love of the water. Janice went on to take sailing lessons, swimming on a team for several years, lifeguarding at her community pool and anything else that kept her in the water...read more

While attending North Carolina State University David and Janice met and became college sweethearts. They married shortly after and had two children, Steven and Jessica, who are the most important part of their lives and their two canine loves Cali and Stella. The kids were practically raised on the water with the family spending almost every weekend and available weekdays on their boat. Whenever possible, the family loved having their friends and family over while boating and enjoyed getting together a large spread of food for everyone. Off boat season the family is known for hosting fun, neighborhood get-togethers for watching their beloved Carolina Panthers or NC State Wolfpack football games.

Janice and David both have their USCG Captain's 100 Ton Masters licenses, STCW95 and Red Cross / CPR certifications and you will see both of them working in the galley. Janice's cooking was influenced growing up on the NC beaches. Steeped in the tradition of southern seafood recipes from Southport and Oak Island as well as "handed dow" recipes from mom and grandmother, Janice's cuisine is infused with the freshest of Caribbean fare. David works his magic on the grill and will insure that guests always have the newest favorite Caribbean drink in hand.

Eager to help guests create some of their own favorite island memories, David and Janice have several of their own from sailing in the islands over the years. Some of their favorite moments were that first sail into Anegada, the jeep ride to the remote Cow Wreck Beach Bar, a private, long anniversary walk on the seven mile beach there, then being invited to a local "Jump Up" in the settlement where overlooking the Caribbean, they enjoyed a delicious lobster dinner with the boat framed in the background at Potters by the Sea. They also remember their first swim up to Soggy Dollar Bar and playing the ring toss on the beach with Bushwhackers in hand!

Janice and David look forward to helping guests experience their own personal daily adventures whether it is a great island hike to some of the ruins and mountain top vistas, a special snorkel or that favorite local hidden beach bar. They will strive to make sure guests see more of the Caribbean treasures than ever and will not be satisfied until they discover their own magic moments!

No question though, David and Janice's favorite part of the charter day is having sails up, hearing nothing but the wind and waves blending in with some Caribbean tunes, and chilling with new friends making way underway.

Reviews for R S Cape with David & Janice Walters:

We had a wonderful time during our Virgin Islands cruise on R S Cape. David and Janice Walters were perfect hosts and did everything possible to make the trip enjoyable. David went above and beyond expectations by accompanying us on 3 hikes in the Virgin Island "mountains". Janice is wonderful company and a great Chef. We hope to connect with them again.

Positive and Enthusiastic Hosts - I Highly Recommend!
Being in the hospitality business in both food and service analysis owning a mystery shopping business and restaurants, Im a discerning customer or guest when it comes to evaluating service and experiences while traveling. I have a very hard standard. Its rare I feel compelled to actually write a review, but in this case, it's very appropriate and well deserved.

David and Janice Walters picked us up in St. John and took us throughout the BVIs on the catamaran R-S-Cape, and we had a fantastic time. Janice and David were positive and enthusiastic hosts and truly enjoy sharing their passion for the islands. In addition to being outstanding sailors, they possess deep knowledge of all the great snorkeling spots, restaurants, islands to visit, and that knowledge allowed David and Janice to plan a great trip for us with our input and their recommendations based on what was important to us.

David and Janice are great people, who struck a nice balance between giving us our private time and connecting with them and having some good laughs and sharing life experiences. We had a fantastic time, will remain in touch with Janice and David, and will go out with them again on another adventure. Plus, Janice is an amazing cook and prepared delicious food for us! Im happy to recommend them highly, you will have a fantastic time.
~Eric Goodman

Exceptional Hosts - Professional and SO Personable!
David and Janice are such exceptional hosts! When there was wind, there was great sailing, when there wasnt wind there was great snorkeling/swimming/kayaking/nap -taking. But for me, the highlight is always watching the sun go down, enjoying the delicious food (yay, Janice!) and catching up with friends and swapping stories over wine and dinner. Thank you both for your seemingly tireless attention to making this a special vacation.~The Keens.

We have chartered sailboats in the Virgin Islands since the late 70s. None were better than this trip. David and Janice were fantastic hosts - professional and so personable.We made wonderful memories that will we suspect will carry us until our next charter. Tally ho!

A Spectacular Experience!
What a special trip to some of the most beautiful spots we have ever seen. Than you for your expertise in guiding us to these special spots to help make our days on the R-S-Escape such a spectacular experience. This was our first charter experience and will most definitely not be our last. I only hope that when we decide to do this agin it can either be with you both or with people as dedicated as you.

PS: Janice, that was most amazing cheese cake ever!

You Two Made Our Days Even More Memorable

What a treat these past few days have been for us! We knew the islands would be beautiful but you two made our days of sailing, swimming and snorkeling even more memorable! In no particular order our favorites:
Chatting while under sail
Huevos Rancheros (Yum!!)
Marina Cay (..the phone booth)
Lazily listening to music *
Thank you both for EVERYTHING!

The Service Was Spot On!
What a great way to hang out with your whole family, explore, relax and readjust your perspective. We enjoyed our time so much it felt weird to leave David and Janice behind- like we were leaving behind family!

As someone who was nervous about being on a boat for 7 days, I can honestly say that David and Janice attended to my and my family's every need. From keeping on the calmest routes to mooring in the best places, they made it look easy. On top of that, the service provided with great delicious meals amazingly thorough recommendations for activities that best fit our family, etcwas spot on. Thank you David and Janice for making this an incredibly memorable family vacation. ~The Avron family

I Can\'t Think of a Better Way to Spend Christmas
I cant even start to explain what a fun vacation this was. I cant thnk of a better way to spend Christmas. Without you two as crew on this trip I'm sure that it wouldn't be half as fun. I cant thank you enough. You guys are the best. ~The Rubin family

Reviews for R S Cape with previous crew:

Scott and Renee were fabulous! Very friendly, very knowledgeable about the area and all the locations we visited. They attended to every need and anticipated our wants/needs. They planned out the perfect itinerary and made great suggestions for excursions/restaurants/bars, etc.

The boat was beautiful - very well maintained and clean. We loved the top deck area - we spent a lot of time up there.

The food was fantastic and beautifully presented. Truly a real chef experience. Renee went out of her way to ensure we all had what we liked and paid attention to our particular likes/dislikes. We did not have one bad meal. It was all fresh, tasty and almost too pretty to eat.

The itinerary was perfect! Just the right mix of action and relaxation and great snorkeling spots.

We were very happy with the service that we received from Sailing Directions.
