Meet the Crew

Richard Hough

Richard and Jan have a wealth of sailing experience having spent years sailing the temperate waters of the North European Atlantic coast and the warmer climes of the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic, then sailed over 6,000 miles circumnavigating the Caribbean Sea. Richard has been sailing since childhood and holds an MCA approved Masters Offshore Certificate for Sailing Vessels up to 200T as well as being an ASA (American Sailing Association) qualified keelboat sailing & navigation instructor for ASA 101-103-104-105.

Since 2009, Richard & Jan have been providing crewed charter vacations aboard their yacht, Scorpio. As owner-operators they pride themselves on the service they offer as well as the facilities and condition of their yacht. Unusually, they do not confine their charters to one particular area; you can charter Scorpio almost anywhere throughout the Caribbean Leeward & Windward Islands, from the ever popular, sheltered waters of the British & US Virgin Islands in the north to the less well trodden paradise of the Grenadines at the southern end of the island chain and all points in between.

Richard & Jan are both keen scuba divers; Richard holds a PADI professional Divemaster qualification and Jan is a PADI certified Rescue Diver; both have first-aid training. Richard will be delighted to show you the fantastic undersea world of the Caribbean, either snorkeling or scuba diving. For those not qualified but who would like to try scuba diving, Richard can provide a PADI Discover Scuba course. Whether admiring the spectacular coral reef or exploring sunken wrecks, the wonders below the waves are not to be missed...read more

Sailing & diving aside, Richard doubles as your waiter, barman, guide and all-round Mr. Fixit, while Jan does all the hard work providing your delicious meals! Jans style of cooking is varied wherever possible, she likes to use local ingredients to provide meals with a Caribbean flavor but retains and reproduces all the wonderful flavors of Mediterranean cooking experienced in her earlier travels.

Richard and Jan both gave up successful professional careers to pursue their dream afloat. Richard worked in major UK distribution businesses and Jan in human resources in both public & private sectors. Not only did they thrive in this professional environment requiring the provision of high quality services to very demanding customers but they actually enjoyed the challenge.

They look forward to welcoming you as guests aboard Scorpio and to providing the vacation of a lifetime in the beautiful Caribbean Sea.

Guests aboard SCORPIO in late January, 2016 said:
The experience we had on board Scorpio could not have been better. Richard and Jan, our hosts were always on top of everything and had tremendous knowledge of the Islands we traveled. The yacht did not disappoint either as it was immaculately clean, roomy, and comfortable.

Richard was amazingly helpful in helping me and my wife as new divers get comfortable with the activity. His patience was immeasurable and always done with a smile. He was very careful to choose dive sites that matched our skill level and were interesting as well. As we also have interest in learning to sail he was tremendously helpful in this regard as well and taught us a great many things about sailing a larger yacht and the rules of the water. We are actually considering a second charter with them to get our sailing certificate for future possible bare boat charters.

As Richard handled most of the sailing and diving activities, Jan was always busy in the galley whipping up new creation for us to enjoy. She would always be a step ahead of us asking for what drinks we wanted, what we wanted to eat and the like. To say the least the menu she created was amazing and different with every meal. They were also far more than just hosts as we spend long whiles on deck chatting and getting to know each other.

One of the reasons we chose Scorpio was the on board dive master and ability to fill tanks on board. This allowed much more time to actually dive than having to travel to a shop for tank fills or carry many tanks that take up deck space. One of the other reasons was his ability to teach sailing as we mentioned above as we have interest in learning.

All in all we would not hesitate for a moment to join Richard and Jan again and could not be more pleased with the experience. They are truly wonderful people that obviously enjoy what they do and it shows in many ways. I would also highly recommend them to anyone who wants a private sailboat charter in the islands as I could not have imagined a better experience. The combination of excellent crew and an excellent yacht I don't think could be beaten.
1 MONTH CHARTER in the Grenadines, Jan. 2010
What a wonderful cruise with our most gracious hosts. The sailing was exceptional with great winds that saw the captain consistently hitting 9 knots and kicking every boat within sight of our vanishing stern. The food was superb from breakfast, lunch and dinner - fresh lobster, snapper and grouper that can only be described as absolutely delicious.
There was never a wonder of where we should go for the best anchorages or places to explore. Richard & Jan have all the best places figured out. Scuba diving was Absolutely the Best, far beyond what we have ever experienced. Richard is an exceptional dive leader with safety and concern for our enjoying the underwater world always first rate.
To rate our trip...It was 5 star... on sailing, diving, eating, exploring and most importantly on a personal level. Richard & Jan - you are wonderful people and you will always be our personal friends - we look forward to meeting you again - hopefully in the near future!
