!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.

Exceeded every expectation! From start to finish we enjoyed every moment. Captain Richard was a true professional in every way and a charming story teller. Biggi- there just are no words! Chef of the Year maybe? Gold Medal? Best Ever?
A wonderful week, beautiful places and memories we will cherish forever.
Fair winds to all of you- we will miss you! Until the next time.
Mark Miller & Nicole Ehrhart
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.
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

We will always remember you and the fun times we spent with you!
