Meet the Crew

Mark Turner


Captain Mark grew up in a small village in Leicestershire, England, before moving to the US over 20 years ago. When Mark first moved to the US he lived in Santa Cruz, California where he learned to sail & would go fishing for salmon and halibut in the Monterey Bay. Later he moved to Florida where his passion for being on the water & sailing lead him to become a sailing instructor. He discovered the Virgin Islands around 15 years ago and since that first visit always dreamed of living the island lifestyle. Finally in 2015 he made that dream a reality. He is really excited to share his passion for sailing and the island way of life with guests aboard R-S-Cape.

Mark is a U.S. Coast Guard Captain, RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Offshore, open water certified scuba diver, and a U.S. Certified Sailing Instructor. He enjoys traveling to new places and meeting people, making new friends along the way. He enjoys being on the water more than being on land, so its no surprise that his favorite sports other than sailing are wake boarding, scuba diving, surfing and kiteboarding. On land he also enjoys watching his favorite football team Leicester City.

Mark's sailing experience includes sailing the Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. His favorite sailing grounds however are right here in the Virgin Islands.His local knowledge of hidden places and local hot spots enables him to take his guests to the best places throughout the islands. ..read more

First Mate/Chef Heather Hessler joins R-S-Cape as a highly regarded freelance chef working in the charter yacht industry.

Born and raised in NJ, Heather's dad had her up on a surfboard since she was three years old. Her passion for the ocean started then. She fell in love with the Virgin Islands after traveling here as a competitive surfer and attending the University of the Virgin Islands

As much as Heather loves being in or around the ocean she has spent equal time in the kitchen. She started working in the restaurant/hospitality business at 16. She learned from great chefs in the super, high-end restaurants of St Thomas where she also became a sought after mixologist creating inspired libations in some of the islands top martini bars. Guests can look forward to her creative cocktails aboard!

From 100-foot motor yachts to busy catamarans like R-S-Cape, Heather has been pleasing palates around the BVI for several years. Heather specializes in preparing healthy, flavorful well-balanced meals that are also aesthetically pleasing. She communicates with her guests pre-charter to tailor a menu to suit any dietary restrictions or preferences. She is well versed in vegetarian/pescatarian/vegan/gluten free diets. Heather draws particular inspiration from Latin, Caribbean and Asian cuisine influences.

Together, Captain Mark and Chef Heather offer an unparalleled vacation experience aboard R-S-Cape - great days of sailing and exploring the BVI with delicious cuisine served with a smile.

We Loved Everything About Our Experience!

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

Reviews for R S Cape with previous crew:

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.

Ron W, aboard Catamaran R S Cape sailing the Virgin Islands

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.
