Meet the Crew

Travis & Biggi & Justin

Captain Gery Messick

Gary grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, on the Chesapeake. His family

always enjoyed boating, skiing and fishing as well as visits to the


In 1994 he sailed out of the Chesapeake on his 32 foot Westerly for a

year of sailing that took him to Bermuda,the Virgin Islands and

finally ending up in Key West. He made Key West home for the next 5


It was during this adventure that Gary developed a passion for diving

& biking as well as sailing.

In 1999, Gary and Jane returned to St Thomas chartering their 50 foot

Gulfstar, Lady Jane.

After another 6 years of chartering, they settled in St Pete, Florida;

always returning several times a year to the Virgin Islands for an

occasional charter.

Gary is very excited to join Three Moons as Captain and looks forward

to being able to share his experience and passion for the islands,

both on land and under water, exploring magnificent worlds to enjoy.

The crew of Three Moons will do everything possible to enhance your vacation.

Chef Biggi Dodson

Biggi was born and grew up in Germany. She fell in love with the art of fine cuisine while working a summer job in a French restaurant and decided that would be her lifes work. About a decade ago, Biggi sailed to the Caribbean and soon began cooking on yachts sailing throughout the islands. She settled in the US Virgin Islands and started catering dinner parties, weddings and business meetings in addition to offering personal chef services. Many repeat customers and referral have brought success and steady growth...read more

Using only the freshest and most sustainable ingredients to create her dishes, she is happy to prepare your favorite style of cuisine and customize menus to meet an special dietary needs. Biggi is a happy, outgoing person who makes you feel at home from the moment you step aboard. She loves fishing, good food and good wine, sharing the best life has to offer for her guests. She is fluent in English, German and French.


!st Mate - Water Sports Engineer Justin Perry

Perry, as people call him, grew up a country boy in Grapeland, TX, a small town in East Texas. However, being the 1st mate on a 72' sailing vessel in the Caribbean is not the usual career path of someone that grew up in the piney woods. He didn't find his way down to the Caribbean unitl 2010 after a friend recommomend him for a position on the operations team of Sail Caribbean (a sailing summer camp for teenagers) in the British Virgin islands.

Just after graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Arts & Technology from the University of Texas at Dallas, Perry spent his time working for a couple of tech companies around the Dallas area. But once he made his way to the Caribbean and stepped foot on a sail boat for the first time, he was in love with the Caribbean and Sailing lifestyle. After a few years of back and forth of summer in the BVI and winters in Dallas. Perry found himself finally moving to St. Thomas, USVI, and finally trading in those wrangler jeans and cowboy boots for board shorts, and flip-flops.

Perry can seem quiet at times, but don't let the calm cool exterior fool you. He isn't a one trick pony and growing up a jack-of-all-trades has lead him to playing many different roles over the past couple of years. Some of which include Operations Director and Fleet Captain at Sail Caribbean, Deckhand/Engineer on the tallship S/V Amistad, handyman and mechanic, sous-Chef to Biggi Dodson, and even going from playing a background pirate on the TV show Crossbones to being the preacher at friend's weddings. So regardless of the time of day, you'll see him doing a multitude of tasks and having fun while doing them, especially fullfilling his role as Watersports Engineer on board Three Moons.

Perry has a passion for sailing, food, hiking, woodwork, and having a goal for everyone around him to enjoy the Caribbean lifestyle as much as he does. After working in the area for 6 years, he's very familiar with the area and can point you to some of the best snorkeling, hiking, watersports, bars, and restaurant spots that you may not have heard of.

If you are looking for the perfect vacation youll find it aboard Three Moons with Biggi and Richard. We have never laughed so hard, played so hard and slept so well and most of all enjoyed the company of others- all while viewing the most beautiful scenery in the Caribbean.

Three Moons surpasses anything
Three Moons Yacht Chartera vacation that left me wondering how on earth I could put into words how wonderful it was! I have vacationed on several cruise lines and would say that Three Moons surpasses anything a cruise has ever offered. The service was top notch in every way possible. If I had to come up with a complaint, it would be that the staff stayed so busy it made me feel bad that I was not.
Captain Richard is focused on safety of the guest, crew, vessel and sailing conditions at all times but engages the guests with his tales of the sea, islands and all his travels. Technology affords him many short cuts and conveniences yet he still relies on his instincts and previous experiences to guide the yacht. Through Captain Richards love of sailing, we all quickly developed a preference of days when the wind was high enough to set our course with all three sails and we could relax to the quiet of the sea.
Chef Biggi is a first class chef that makes ever meal on the yacht a true culinary experience. Each meal was seasoned, grilled, basted and/or presented in such a way that a food critic would be left speechless. Biggi is not limited to her culinary skills. She is a mixologist extraordinaire and is quick to make sure your cup or koozie is never empty. She too has such knowledge of sailing and island life that leaves you envying her lifestyle.

\"Once in a lifetime\" vacation
The best vacation. I've been on some really nice trips. Three Moons Yacht Charters was an experience that l will do again.
1. The location. The Virgin Islands are an amazing place to be. And to be able to experience it in our own private yacht was totally the best way to see the places we wanted to see.
2. The Yacht. Three Moons Yacht was a beautiful and comfortable place to stay as we sailed to the islands we wanted to see. Capitan Richard A. Gillette made our time at sail interesting, safe, and entertaining.
3. The food. To have our own Chef on board was the bomb! Biggi Dodson cooked such memorable, beautiful, and delicious dishes! Amazing!

I'm happy to recomend this experience and encourage you to consider this for your next "once in a lifetime" vacation. You will be tempted to make an annual tradition

For our third sailing cruise in the BVI, the Three Moons is the ultimate experience~ Best Captain, Best Chef (no one could have been better,
5-star food and presentation 7 nights in a row) and the Best Bartender! Randy, your love of music and dancing (and card playing) made this trip unique and very special. Keep showing what true Southern Hospitality really means. We hope to make #4 trip on Three Moons again in the future.

absolutely Perfect...a true sailing vacation
This week has been absolutely perfect! Captain Richard is one of the best Captains weve ever sailed with. We experienced some of the best sailing ever. If there was a possibility to put the sails up, Captain Richard sailed. We have experienced other charters where the Captain spent more time motoring than sailing. Not this charter. If you are looking for a true sailing vacation this is it. The food prepared by Biggi was incredible. Every meal was wonderful. Best food in the Caribbean. Biggi is such an asset to this boat. You can tell she loves what she does. She is the best! Perry (our first mate) was so fun to be around. He also is an excellent sailor. Our adult children bonded with Perry right away . He was always willing to chaperone them and made sure they were enjoying their vacation. I cant stress enough how special this crew is! We hope to see them again soon.

Trip of a lifetime!
What a fantastic experience! Roy Pat, Gary & Biggi scheduled our week aboard Three Moons perfectly. We were on a different island every day, we had the right excursions on land at exactly the right time, we snorkeled every day. Biggi anticipated our every need - meals were all 5 star! Each meal and every snack was served at just the right time. Our cups were never empty. Rum Punch was the best I've ever had. On top of a wonderful vacation, this crew also pulled off two amazing weddings with only 4 days notice! After a week with Roy Pat, Gary & Biggi, we went from strangers to family! Can't wait to see them again!
