Meet the Crew

Mark & Sally Duncan

Mark - You'll find me in the water as much as on it, and I love to lead guided snorkeling safaris. Pointing out the amazing richness and variety of fish and wildlife the Caribbean Islands have to offer. I also love to fish and delight in helping you tempt a nice Tuna or Mahi-Mahi to your lure, or a Bonefish to your fly. When at anchor you may like to take some tuition from me on learning to Windsurf. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to assist a total novice in getting up and sailing with a little guidance and encouragement.

Sally - Having sailed with my father from before I could walk and having helped my mum in the kitchen from an early age I've always had a passion for sailing and food. Graduating from University in Food Technology I have loved creating dinner parties and varied social events or taking part in competitive sailing. I aspire to ensure our guests are able to relax, enjoy good cuisine, and have lots of fun experiencing The Caribbean on their dream vacation. We have always gelled as a team. Guests enthuse about our professionalism, hospitality, good humor and desire to live life to the full.

We excel at being great hosts and creating personalized, unforgettable vacations. Let us help you live the dream!

June 2018
I have been very lucky and have spent over a dozen weeks sailing on Catamarans over the last several years. One of my best experiences was spending three weeks this season (2018) on a Cat called Azuria. From the moment I boarded, I could tell this was going to be one of the best experiences I have had sailing. The yacht was so clean and Mark and Sally our crew had paid attention to every detail prior to us even coming on board. Once on board we learned all our safety things and the fun began instantly. Every anchorage to every cocktail to every snack and even every meal was incredible and we could not have needed anything more. Mark and Sally run an amazing operation. They make your vacation relaxing, fun and you learn something new each and every day. I would highly recommend sailing with them for the ultimate sailing charter experience. I will be back in 2019 and if you are considering a crewed Yacht vacation get on Azuria with Mark and Sally, it's superb!! - Jeff
June 2018
HOW DID YOU ENJOY YOUR CHARTER? It was outstanding. Just the right amount of activity and relaxation.
Food was fantastic


WAS THE YACHT CLEAN, WELL-MAINTAINED AND COMFORTABLE FOR YOUR GROUP? Very clean and lots of water sports. Great size for the four of us.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE QUALITY OF MEALS SERVED ON BOARD? Outstanding. Sally and Mark create fantastic meals. Three great meals
a day, fresh fruit, terrific desserts and great cocktails.

Mark & Sally
People often ask me why we always seem to return year after year to the BVI. Is it the Sun, the Water, the Beaches, or the Sailing.
But the truth is it’s THE TWO OF YOU.
You have become friends, GOOD FRIENDS and we totally enjoy your company. We love the way you make us ffel so comfortable.
We were both glad we were able to bring our family, to understand why we just love to be with YOU TWO, now they know

April 2018
Mark & Sally –
Talking with Jeff and Laura about this trip – we have very high expectations. You’ve exceeded them all!!

Dear Sally & Mark
This has truly been one of the best vacations we have ever taken!
The food, the weather, the hospitality have all been unsurpassed. We loved getting to know your beautiful islands, and getting to know you!
Now, as we head home to our 4th Nor’easter blizzard this March, we appreciate more than ever what a paradise you have shown us and we are determined to come back again soon!

Fair seas and good winds to you both

A huge thank you to Captain Mark and Chef Sally, the amazing crew of #sailazuria, for the incredible week we just spent in the BVI’s. The meals prepared by chef Sally were outstandingly delicious! The service was impeccable! Captain Mark and Sally made the entire trip entertaining, relaxing, and fun for all. It was as truly the best vacation we’ve ever had! If you’re looking for an all inclusive family or adult get away I highly recommend this crew and yacht! #bvi #bluewater #bestvacationever

Mark and Sally,
"God Bless you---you are going to die" My new favorite quote. Can't thank you enough for everything!

Mark and Sally, Oh my frick this trip has been speechless. Thank you for sharing stories that seriously intrigued me and keeping us safe and full of food. Please never change because you guys are the best!
P.S. You have also inspired me to travel and really make the most of life

Mark and Sally, you two have given us a memory that tops our adventures! What a CLASS ACT with you - from island to island you have given us knowledge, experience, friendship, good drink, fantastic meals, and the respect of love for people.

March 1-8, 2017 - on previous yacht Viking Dream
I am following the questions on your Post Charter Review to provide you feedback on our recent charter on the Viking Dream.

Let me preface my review by saying this sailing adventure was one of, or maybe the best vacation I've ever taken. Sailing on the Viking Dream was beyond all my expectations.

The Viking Dream is an exquisite boat. Every inch of it is immaculate. It is Mark and Sally's home and they take great pride in it and it shows. The boat is spacious and extremely comfortable. I loved swinging in the hammock chair or lounging in the bean bag chairs and of course sunning on the deck. The state rooms are very good size (for boat living) and are appointed with plenty of cabinets, lockers and shelves to accommodate all of your gear.You want for nothing on the Viking Dream. Sally and Mark make sure you have everything and are always comfortable. Truly, we were treated like royalty. It was the most wonderful experience. On board the Viking Dream are all the water toys and equipment as advertised. My sisters, mom and I had a ball kayaking and snorkeling and tubing and paddle boarding. (There was even more to do like fishing and windsurfing, but we opted for more relaxing!)

Mark was great with making suggestions for activities and getting us to the best places to do them. He was always ready and willing to get our equipment ready for us.

Mark is a captain extraordinaire. Besides catering to his guests, he sails the Viking Dream with amazing skill and ease. Sally is his first mate. Together they work like a fine tuned machine, in tandem, seamlessly sailing and managing the boat.With Sally and Mark at the helm, you don't have a care in the world.

Sally is a chef beyond compare. She treated us to 3 meals a day ( and appetizers at cocktail hour) that dazzled both my taste buds and my eyes. Each was an exquisite masterpiece worthy of a photo in a cookbook. Day in and day out we were awed by Sally's decadent creations. Additionally, Sally considered all of our food preferences. I LOVED every dish she prepared (and was stuffed at the end of each meal.)

With 100% confidence I would recommend sailing with Mark and Sally on the Viking Dream. ( I already have!) If I ever have the opportunity to charter a boat again I would only sail on the Viking Dream.

Very truly yours,

Linda T.

What a way to ring in my 50th year! This trip has EXCEEDED our expectations in every way. We knew whichever port was around the corner or what delicious food would be put on the table, it was all nothing less than perfect.

We couldnt have asked for better hosts and company. We hope to set sail with you both and the Viking Dream again!

Thanks again for the PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

Dear Mark and Sally


We have been pampered beyond our expectations. The three meals each day, and everything else have been fabulous.

The presentation of the food was outstanding. We appreciated and admire the work you do for your guests. Having sailed ourselves before, we know what effort it takes to make everything work.

Dear Mark and Sally
Thank you so much for sharing your Dream and islands with our family!
You are both totally awesome!
Sally in the Galleys gourmet creations in that small space are nothing short of miraculous!
Whenever Ben refuses to eat his greens, we will remind him of him eating Sallys.

Mark, thank you for your patience in entertaining the boys out on the water. You finally managed to tire out an 11 and 13 year old!

Thank you for making this a dream Vacation. We hope to be soon Living the Dream again.

Thank you Marjorie, Gaston, Andrew & Ben
December 2016 (previous yacht Viking Dream)
"Just back from another tremendous vacation on Viking Dream. The difference was this was our first trip with other couples, sans children, making the Captian's poison of the day even more enjoyable and the nights under the stars romantic (trampolines are fun). Mark and Sally's knowledge of bays meant that we not only had a fabulous lunch at Deadman's Beach with a steel drum band one day, a few nights later they found a secluded bay with just one other boat (during the peak of the charter season). We found so many different fish, coral, and fans, all with incredible colors, at the snorkeling spots they took us too we spent cocktail hour going through the books and talking about what we'd seen. I've always loved Sally's cooking and it was particularly delicous not having to limit for child's preferences. I love taking the helm of Viking Dream as we cruise down the channel, all enjoying the spectacular views. A truly enjoyable vacation."
- Andrew Z. Dec. 2016

November 2016, Multi repeat guests the Ditges wrote a fabulous poem! (previous yacht Viking Dream)
here once was a yacht named Viking
In which Mark and Sally took a liking.
They escaped from the Swan to the Boat we are on.

One day we went sailing, when the winds were prevailing;
The spinnaker was raised, to all awe and praise!
At nine knots we were cruising, no one got a bruising, as we were all boozing!

Captain Mark led us on snorkelling excursions, often in places with real Fat Virgins.
Saw lots of coral & pretty fish, however Turtles were amiss.

On Saba Rock what a disgrace, when the Tarpon splashed Lauras face.
Back to the boat we went,
Viking Vibrations were spent!

Our palates were teased with all meals we were pleased.
Captains poison by Mark, includes stormy and dark.
The Admiral in the galley, creating dishes by Sally.

The Dreams been visited by Tom and Pete, and other guests that often repeat.
Who all try not to spill wine on the seat.
The red all soaked in not sure whether Cab or Zin,
But Tom and Petes napkins held it all in!:)

Pirate jokes were told they never get old!
The Trivia flies, Captain Mark is so wise.
We remember not one, so when we are back for more fun, booze and sun,
Repeating questions will fool everyone!

Sally won twice at the game of dice.
Captain called foul, saying it wasnt nice.

We were all the crew with nothing to do,
But to try hard to drink all of the brew.

All hail to the Queen,
This trip was a DREAM!
If you are reading this you know what we mean!!

June 2016 (previous yacht Viking Dream)
We had a great time on Viking Dream. The boat was immaculate at all times. Sally's meals were delicious and beautifully plated. Mark was great both in educating all of us with his daily trivia questions and mapping out our daily journey, as well as carting the kids around endlessly for water sports. My mom enjoyed every second of the trip.

Thank you for all your help,
April 2016 (previous yacht Viking Dream)
April 23 2016
Its difficult to describe on a page how incredible the experience was that you provided us this week. The boat was beautiful and spotless and extremely cozy and comfortable.
The food was so delicious that we cannot fathom how you could create it in a galley.
The sights and activities were so much fun that we cant decide what our favourites were.The nature walk with Mark? The Hot Dog? Snorkelling? Cow Wreck Beach?
With your indepth knowledge of the area, history, nature and sailing; every experience was that much more meaningful and FUN.
Meeting the two of you, and hearing your stories was also a joy. Not only did we feel spoiled beyond words, we also felt incredible safe in your well organised, thoughtful and careful hands.

Thank you so very much for everything and please do visit us in Rhode Island

If possible, our second visit with you was even better than our first. Cant wait for our next visit. Hopefully not so long between trips!

Lots of love Rick

Thank you for the great time! Cant wait until our next trip and all the fun we will have.

Lots of love.
DJ & Jim

Time of my life! You are wonderful hosts. Best time ever and hope to return again some day soon!

Thanks for everything.

Thank you for the best holiday we have had. The food and company were amazing. You offer the best charter in the BVI.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

November 2015 (previous yacht Viking Dream)

Thank you for giving us a very memorable trip. From the time we stepped on board you created a wonderful, fun and family like experience. You led us to the best spots to snorkel, best for overnight and best for seeing the beautiful islands.

We cant imagine doing this with any other boat. We cant thank you enough for our wonderful vacation. We wont have another Rum Punch, Painkiller or even a touch of rum without these memories!

Kelly & Mark
Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

Wonderful sailing, snorkeling and friendship in between 3 gourmet meals a day. Plus appetizers that we often mistook for the meal itself!

Just a perfect week. We hope to see Captain Cocktail and Admiral Sally next year for another adventure. That gives us about 12 months to work off the excess!

Vacations don't get any better than this! We will miss you Mark & Sally.

Reviews for Azuria with previous crew:

Donné and Stewart were the model of friendly, attentive and accommodating (add GRACIOUS). They are superb hosts, entertaining and lovely to be with. We were totally impressed by our trip and all future sailing trips will be measured by a trip on Azuria.

On our day of departure, I recall walking up to Azuria where it was docked and commenting to my friends that it was the cleanest boat I had ever seen. You can eat off any surface of this vessel. Donné and Stewart take incredibly good care of their boat (as well as they take care of you!). The main saloon is very well ventilated and the cabins have a good breeze blowing through the hatch if it's breezy or there is air conditioning available if not (rarely used). The level of service provided by Donné and Stewart was superb.

Donné is a superb chef and she takes great pains to present each meal beautifully. We couldn't wait until the next meal as they were so delicious. I highly recommend Captain Stewart's petit rum as well (well, actually, all of the Captain's Cocktails!).

We threw them for a loop as one of our party had to leave early. They accommodated our needs and we still had a fantastic itinerary. We were lucky to have a fantastic sail from Tortola to the Baths due to an unusual wind. We had a tremendous time!

Sailing Directions was very easy to deal with. We would definitely do another charter.

Brett L, aboard Catamaran Azuria February 2015  sailing the Virgin Islands

Donne cleaned the cabins, bathrooms and refused to let us make our own beds. Every morning as we sat for breakfast she hurried off to each cabin to clean as if we were just walking in for the first time.

The food was incredible. We told Donne and Stewart multiple times that we couldn't have gone to a restaurant and ordered that well three meals per day! The portions were perfect and she was even willing to share her recipes with us. The best part is we weren't rushed to sit for any meals yet when we were ready she reacted and served us immediately.

Our itinerary was great and only made better by Stewart and Donne's suggestions to us. Like something simple as a choice of a spa day at Peter Island or they could pack us champagne on ice and glasses in a backpack and they would show us a trail to hike to the top of Peter Island so we could see an incredible view of all the islands and toast a great trip!

John, you were so quick to respond to every question and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. In fact I've already sent your info to a friend. It couldn't have been easier and more efficient.

Jimmy S, aboard Catamaran Azuria January 2015  sailing the Virgin Islands

Our trip through the BVIs was amazing. Azuria is a beautiful catamaran and we were made to feel right at home with Stewart and Donne'. They were welcoming and we felt like we were with our best friends. Donne' catered to our food needs perfectly - and we do have some finicky eaters with our kids. We have been so impressed by both our charters booked through your company and I am sure we will be sailing again very soon. Thank you again for providing such quality.

Lisa M, aboard Catamaran Azuria January 2015  sailing the British Virgin Islands

We had a fabulous trip, wonderful crew in Stewart and Donne' and have only the highest regard for our entire experience. Thanks again.

Sam H, aboard Catamaran Azuria June 2014  sailing the Virgin Islands

Donne' & Stewart were great hosts the two weeks we were aboard Azuria. They made sure we were comfortable and happy. Azuria is a wonderful sailing yacht, the berths are good sized with a hatch that allows you to feel the cool breezes while you sleep.

Donne' is the master of the galley. Our stay was two weeks and we requested no seafood, which is unusual, but she created meals that were way above our expectations. Simply amazing.

Both Donne' & Stewart' know the US & BVI's very well and took us to wonderful anchorages and areas on the islands to hike and explore. Their knowledge of the area was a great benefit to us. We also had such a good time while we sailed.

Donna B, aboard Catamaran Azuria February 2014  sailing the Virgin Islands

Our recent sailing vacation was outstanding! We have done this several times over the years and Stuart and Donne' are the best. The Azuria is a beautiful boat, the food was 5 Star and Stuart and Donne' made the trip memorable for all of us. Hope to be able to sail again with them.

Jeanne L, aboard Catamaran Azuria January 2014  sailing the Virgin Islands

We had a great time. We had a completely different experience than we did when sailed a few years ago. Before we left I had recommended Sailing Directions as we had a great time previously. Had even more fun this time!

The crew were over the top on friendly, attentive and accommodating. Exceeded expectations. Really enjoyed being on their boat. Our family highly recommends Azuria which includes our 19 and 21 year old girls.

Food was delicious. Enjoyed the variety of seafood and salads. Presentation excellent.

They kept us busy and yet had time to relax. Enjoyed every stop. It was nice as we had been to many of the same spots previously, we stayed in different locations and learned something new each time.

Recommending Sailing Directions' service to others. I have used Sailing Directions twice and will use again.

Our vacation was absolutely FABULOUS. We couldn't have special ordered a better couple to spend a week with than Donne and Stewart. We are all at this moment missing them dearly.

Donne and Stewart are the most friendly and interesting and FUN people we have met in a long time. They work tirelessly to make sure we are getting the most out of our vacation. The food that Donne prepared was so delicious and we all looked forward to mealtime :-)

The Azuria is a beautiful new yacht and they take such pride in keeping her maintained in perfect shape at all times. The crew always knew the best spots to snorkel, places to anchor and fun things to see.

We will definitely be looking into another week with them next year.

Stewart & Donne' were great. They went above and beyond to make us comfortable. They were entertaining and we enjoyed their company and stories. The Azuria was exceptionally clean and tidy. The food and drinks were amazing! More than we expected.

The Azuria was comfortable, clean and well ventilated. The rooms were well attended. We did not spend a lot of time below but when we did we were comfortable.

Like I said above - food was amazing. Can't say enough about the food that Donne presented from that tiny kitchen and a few times while we were sailing. We certainly never went hungry and when the food was served it was presented beautifully and was gourmet quality.

Itinerary was great. They showed us new placed that we did not visit on our first Caribbean voyage.

Sailing Directions were great (Thanks John) and we let Stewart and Donne know just how easy you were to deal with. Thanks.

We had the time of our lives. Stewart and Donne' could not have taken better care of us. We wanted for nothing. The boat is beautiful. Stewart took us skiing, tubing, snorkeling, hiking and made fantastic Pain Killers. Donne's meals were scrumptious. We will sail with them again.

Our week on Azuria was by far above and beyond anything we had expected or imagined! Stewart and Donne were extremely friendly, attentive, and accommodating in every way possible. By the end of the week they felt like family and we hated to say goodbye! Azuria was immaculate and very comfortable. The food was out of this world! The one night we ate out we wished we hadn't. We had been so spoiled by Donne's (and Stewart's( cooking!

We absolutely loved the itinerary. We trusted Stewart to take us to the best snorkeling spots and beaches and he didn't let us down! Red Hook port worked very well with our itinerary. We were extremely pleased with the service Sailing Directions provided. It was the best family vacation we've ever had! We will definitely try to find a way to do it again!

In short best boat, crew, food and fun of my life. Thank you. Love Donne and Stewart. Wonderful people.

We had a wonderful time on Azuria last week. Donne' and Stewart were very gracious hosts and the weather was just perfect. Donne's meals were certainly one of the high points of each day. Each meal was not only delicious but presented as well as in any fine restaurant. Azuria is a beautiful yacht that is spacious and provides several private gathering areas. Our group particularly enjoyed the amazing Caribbean night sky from the seating area on the bow.

Although my wife and daughter-in-law were very concerned about getting seasick, neither had any problem at all. In fact, my daughter-in-law learned to scuba dive during the trip.

Stewart and Donne' were attentive to our every need whether it was helping us prepare to snorkel or arranging a taxi for our onshore adventures.

The entire experience was beyond all of our expectations.

Stewart and Donne' were wonderful hosts. The Azuria is a beautiful vessel. She is very well appointed and Stewart and Donne' take great care and pride in her appearance and proper function. I didn't want to leave. The food was wonderful. I have never eaten so well and in such quantity for 5 straight days.

The whole experience was very positive - both working with Sailing Directions and then Stewart and Donne'. I would be happy to serve as a reference for Sailing Directions and Stewart and Donne'.

Reviews for Mark & Sally Duncan aboard previous yachts:

Mark & Sally were fantastic. Really enjoyed their company. Great in every way. Viking Dream was great. Loved the table/meals area, really comfortable. The food was fantastic. It exceeded our expectations! Loved the islands and places we saw. The service was the most surprising thing - we had never had such great service. Even when we got off the yacht and went to do an island trip, Mark had every detail planned and every taxi driver set up. Really excellent service! Love to do it again in the future.
