Meet the Crew

Paul & Tanya

Paul and Tanya previously had corporate lives before realizing the draw of yachting as a full-time career. They are now your yacht crew and welcome you onboard Split Second!

Having met in a Costa Coffee in Gatwick in 2006, they instantly did not fall in love.

However, after a four hour train journey they realized they had a mutual appreciation of each other, and later married in the idealistic Mediterranean island of Ghawdex (Gozo).

They have sailed all over both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean together, and whilst they consider Malta their home, their heart is with the BVI. They both have extensive knowledge of the BVI, and have been sailing in her beautiful waters, upon the most stunning of yachts, for over a decade.

Paul, Tanya and India are all very outgoing and very professional people, with the best qualifications and experience and they will make sure you feel at ease and safe at all times.

They will take pleasure to customize your upcoming trip and will make sure to make it your holiday of a lifetime.

Paul - Captain

Paul is proud to say he was sailing from before he was born. He has always had a passion for the sea and watersports. Growing up racing sailing yachts, at 16, he was the youngest ever dinghy sailing instructor in his home country of Northern Ireland.

Trained as an aeronautical engineer, he decided to leave the office in the early nineties to pursue a professional yachting career and hasn’t looked back since. He has extensive local knowledge of all the islands around which you will be sailing and will always find a quiet and secluded spot if you require. Or the liveliest of bars! You will be taken to the best snorkeling spots, best sailing areas, and simply the best of everything there is to offer...read more

Tanya - Chef/Mate

Tanya suffers from a debilitating problem, wanderlust! Growing up as far from the sea as possible in the UK, she was introduced to yachting in 2001 whilst in Australia when she was travelling round the world. She genuinely loves to meet new people and forge new friendships. She is also an RYA Yachtmaster, and will make sure you feel at home, safe and above all pampered at all times on the yacht.

She grew up building her culinary skills by cooking with Mum and Grandma. Later she attended several schools to hone her skills, including Walnut Grove (France), Raymond Blanc Cookery School (UK), Island Eats Culinary school (USVI). Aside from a previous job in customer service, she has a genuine love to entertain people, and has been doing so on the high seas for the last decade.

As a professionally trained swimmer, if you want to perfect your swimming technique, she’s the girl!

India – Stew/Deck

Born in London, but raised in Malta from the age of 3, India joyfully experienced her childhood in the ever sunny Mediterranean. Her love and passion for sailing began at an early age, when both she and her brother helped crew a family owned sailing yacht, often sailing around the Mediterranean, and in particular, Sicily and it’s smaller islands.

Whilst thoroughly enjoying the sailing, she equally thrived on ensuring that any guests were relaxed, comfortable and well looked after. Hospitality, along with sailing are her passion.

Having completed her secondary education at a British boarding school, India chose to enroll at the world renowned Ballymaloe cookery school, where she completed the professional chefs course, with flying colors.

Following her passion for sailing, she then embarked on continuing her training at UKSA (Isle of White, UK), where she qualified as a stewardess and a water sports instructor (windsurf/dinghy/paddle board/ kayak). India is now looking forward to her professional yacht master qualification in the near future. She looks forward to meeting you, and welcoming you onboard, not to mention, making your stay, absolutely fabulous.

Team

Together, as ‘Split Second Team 2018 and Beyond!’, we can’t wait to show you the beauty of both this boat and these islands!

Better than expected!
Paul & Tanya,
We enjoyed our time with you more than ever expected! You made us feel like new friends rather than clients, and we truly enjoyed getting to know you!
It was fantastic sailing through the BVI and learning about the area. We’ll never forget the amazing natural beauty of the islands.
The meals were absolutely phenomenal! You introduced us to so many new flavours! All restaurants should immediately change their recipes to Tanya’s Tiramisu!!
We appreciated your attention to detail and your knowledge and experience.

We loved everything, and hope to return
You’re the BEST!!

How would you qualify the crew and their service?
Skipper:
5 Star - Jack could not have been a better Captain. I felt safe every day being on the boat. Every morning he would give us history on the places we were going which I really loved. Whenever we wanted to go somewhere he would accompany us so we always felt safe.
Rest of the crew:
5 Star - Jamiey was amazing! I could not complain about one meal she cooked. We had a different meal everyday which I though was great. I have some dietary restrictions and she would always make sure that I liked what I was eating which I so appreciated.

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc)?
5 Star - I thought every room was great - you are really only in your room to sleep. The rooms were kept clean by the crew daily. Lots of space to move around.

How would you qualify the itinerary?
5 Star - I loved every day - going to all the different islands daily was perfect. I was afraid I would feel stir crazy being on the boat but never once did.

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/ equipment on board?
5 Star - I loved all the equipment! The floats and paddleboards were great.

How would you qualify the food and drinks?
5 Star - AMAZING!

How would you qualify the crew and their service?
Skipper:
5 Star - Highly knowledgeable, skilled, and super friendly. Went above and beyond to make sure we had an extraordinary experience, and we did!
Rest of the crew:
5 Star - Seriously talented Chef. Felt completely at home. Service was top notch in every way. We were served 7 breakfast, 7 lunches, 8 snacks, and 8 dinners and each was uniquely delicious, healthy and beautifully presented!

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc)?
5 Star - Very comfortable, luxurious and well-kept by the attentive skipper and crew.

How would you qualify the itinerary?
5 Star - Unbeatable. The skipper gave us choices and shared his extensive knowledge of the area.

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board?
Had everything we needed to have a great time. Everyone loved the "party float"!

How would you qualify the food and drinks?
5 Star - Each meal was exceptional and never repeated during our entire trip. Impressive to say the least. The Chef should write a cookbook, we requested many of her recipes!

How would you rate the entire experience of you trip?
5 Star - the only downside was having to leave! My heart remains on the Split Second with Captain Jack and Jaimey in the BVI!
Post charter review provided by broker February 2018
Name: CHERYL
Yacht: SPLIT SECOND with Jack & Jamiey
Charter Dates: Feb 10-17, 2018
Area Cruised: US & BRITISH Virgin Islands

1. Was the crew friendly and accommodating? Anything special they did that stood out in your mind to make your trip excellent? How did they go above & beyond?

-Food, custom destinations, sailing!
-Made us feel welcome the minute we stepped onto the boat with introductions, snacks, and champagne. Went out of their way to listen and accommodate food preferences (roti).
-Destinations were planned every morning depending on preferences, weather, and were in context with their deep knowledge of the islands.
-It was a blast to sail and learn about sailing! Can't say enough about this!
-Very friendly and accommodating!
-Surprised us with roti for lunch. After hearing our conversation for our love of roti, Jack and Jaimey were able to have them delivered for lunch. It was a wonderful surprise.
-Let us sail the boat. Captain Jack was a knowledgeable and patient teacher. What a great experience!
-Helped us find and use our windsurfers. Followed along in dingy to make sure we were safe and not in distress.
-Made sure we all were able to enjoy our favorite activities.
-Very friendly and really really really accommodating!!! Love that about them.
-Helped us acquire fresh lobster in Anegada, they continually made sure that if anything extra was wanted that they got it, like Jack and Jaimey sourced fresh Roti from Tortola. Very impressed with Jaimey and Jack’s sailing knowledge.
-The crew were great! Very friendly & accommodating! Jaimey overheard us all saying we liked rotis which wasn’t on our preference sheet or her menu plan but she made arrangements for them to be delivered while in port. She also was great to prepare delicious lobster spur of the moment when we were at Anegada. She also learned they I liked Chai tea and had prepared an adapted recipe for me a few mornings with what she had on hand. Jack was great to arrange for a wind surf boards to be picked up and to include us in beautiful hikes on his time. They also went above & beyond by allowing us to board/spend the night on Friday.
-They let us come aboard Friday evening due to the original charter including a third crew member. Unexpected accommodation and made the trip so much easier.
-Allowed us to participate in the sailing of the boat and answered every question about “what do we do if . . .” “what does this do?”
-Changed the meal plan to include a meal that everyone on the boat loved after we expressed regret we were going to miss having X.
-The answer was always “YES”

2. Was the yacht comfortable and clean?

-Yes!
-Jaimey and Jack took great care of the boat and rooms. Rooms were cleaned and straightened everyday, floors cleaned, surfaces cleaned.
-It was windy, so they rinsed the salt off the boat after every sail.
-They picked up after us and had a lost and found space where it was easy to retrieve our forgotten items.
-The boat owners are lucky to have a crew that takes great care of their investment.
-Beautiful yacht!! They kept it in great shape too.
-Yes, it was well cared for and extremely comfortable.

3. Was the food tasty and well presented? Any specific meals/dishes that you really loved?

-Yes! Meal the last night was my favorite.... From appetizer to desert.
-Wow! I can't say enough about our meals. Jaimey's presentation of the food was beautiful! The variety was nice. Special care was taken to make sure our dining experience was spectacular! Every meal was a hit!
-Ribs!! Lobster!! Fried fish was an absolute top dish!! Her deserts were amazing!!
-Yes the food was great. We liked having the lighter lunches. The flash fried fish, lobster & pasta were our favorites!
-Yes. Roti (acquired mid charter); lightly fried fish; pizza. Banana bread.

4. Did you enjoy the area you sailed? What were your thoughts on the area after the hurricanes? What were some of your favorite anchorages/stops this time around?

-Favorite stops... Anegada, soggy dollar, baths. I didn't feel that the hurricanes dampened our experience. For me, the activities at the stops made the stops stand out.... Hiking, snorkeling, windsurfing, volleyball, walking on the beach, restaurant.
-Loved the areas that we sailed. Was impressed by the tenacity of the people on the islands. It was obvious there was much damage done to the islands, but the people on the islands were able to provide services comfortably. So happy we were able to sail to Anegada. With the winds, we were able to make the sail quickly and had time to enjoy Anegada's beautiful beaches.
Great stops for an area that just got punished by 2 hurricanes. Sun was shining, the water was beautiful and the boat was grand!!
-We liked visiting all the stops but enjoyed Privateer Bay
-Yes they crew did a wonderful job of helping select destinations / activities. It was sad to see the lingering effects of the hurricanes on some of our favorite places, but the crew did a good job of seeking out places that were accessible and enjoyable.


5. Additional comments on your charter?

-First time sailing. A wonderful experience! I will recommend this trip to others. I hope to charter another trip soon!!!
-Highly recommend—would return to this boat and crew if given the opportunity!

Well certainly be sharing our love of this vessel, trip and awesome crew. Loved the teamwork and how you make it all look so easy – we know and appreciate how hard you work and all you do! 100%

How did you enjoy your charter and crew? " Fantastic time. They accommodated our active lifestyle very well. Whatever craziness we were up for was fair game. As experienced, active water people, they gave us the appropriate freedom to explore while providing guidance to ensure safety."

Was the yacht clean, well maintained and comfortable?: New boat and the crew keeps it spotless. Very well maintained.

Quality of meals? "You taste the personality and care of Mel in the meals. She aimed to prepare food she thought we would like and hit the mark: fresh, clean and flavorful. We are generally not big dessert eaters but she cured that.... Great job on the food."

Would you take another charter in the future and where?" Absolutely.

Suggestions for the boat or crew? "Not really. They did a great job and the boat was perfect for us. They adapted to our desire for fun/casual interaction with lots of play time."
Spring 2017
Unbelievable trip and experience of a lifetime with 5 star food! Jack & Jaimey are a warm, friendly and fun crew. The service was never forced but always present. We all connected with you in a very genuine way. So, it was only natural that you became part of our trip and daily fun. Thank you Jack, Jaimey and Mel for the best trip our family had the opportunity to experience.

The boat was incredible. Waking every day to a gorgeous port, taking a morning swim, a fabulous breakfast and planning our next adventure with Jack was a great way to start the day.

You truly customized the trip to our interests, desires and however we felt at the moment. You catered to our spontaneous desires - "swim call" and fit in perfectly with our nightly euchre games. You were also terrific with the kids who I know appreciated Jaimey's guided snorkle trips and Captain Jack's water sport time. Then, it was always great returning from an activity to one of Mel's fabulous afternoon snacks.

We had been to the BVI before and in many ways you made us feel like it was our first time! We will be back and can't imagine sailing with anyone other than your crew.

January 2017
Holly and I have been excited about coming aboard the Eclipse for nearly a year now. When our friends told us about Captain Jack and Jaimey and the catamaran experience we were ready to sign up. As we got closer we were abet concerned that the trip may not live up to expectations. You know when you are excited for something for a long time and have those high expectations, many times the experience does not live up to it. As soon as we took our dinghy ride to meet the Eclipse, we realized our concerns were way off base. Not only were Captain Jack and Jaimey attentive and helpful but, most importantly, they made us feel like family and members of the Eclipse crew.

Waking each day to another fabulous meal followed by "Storytime" and our plan for the day ahead just made the experience that much more incredible. Each day we sailed and explored somewhere new and just when you thought things couldn't be more fun and beautiful, the next day arrived. Each meal was expertly prepared and would have made any world renowned chef envious of their quality and presentation. We actually dared to eat off the yacht one night to have some world famous spiny lobster at Anegada Island. While the lobster was fantastic, our entire group decided we were not going to cheat on Jaimey again as her meals were superior to even that lobster. Our only regret for the entire trip on the Eclipse was that it had to come to an end. Eventually the real world came back to haunt us and as we headed home, we knew we would be back. We were not just leaving a crew behind on the Eclipse, we felt we were leaving behind family. Until next time, we wish you both happy sailing and we're looking forward to our next adventure.

Reviews for Split Second with previous crew:

Split Second was spotless, the flybridge upper deck was our favorite hangout.

Jack and Jaimey are a phenomenal team. The itinerary was perfect and they made it fun.

As a former restaurant owner, with 35 years in the industry, I would have hired Jamie in a heart beat but I know I could never match the view she has from her kitchen. She is talented, precise, and her food presentation is out of a magazine, while ALL being made from scratch, right down to the hamburger buns. The seasoning flavors and textures, are unbelievable, especially for a self trained chef, and she is also a dam good sailor. There are only 2 words; 5 star.

Thanks for all your help arranging the charter, it was a wonderful vacation. If I can ever stop talking about it, I will most likely be booking again, and will certainly refer, Sailing Directions.

Jack W, aboard Catamaran Split Second sailing the Virgin Islands

Jack & Jaimey were excellent! They were delightful - looked after our every need and were a joy to be around. Jaimey offered hiking/running suggestions to our son/daughter and Jack amused us with his many tales.

Split Second was very comfortable, clean and the AC was good when required. Fave aspect was the fly bridge.

Food was excellent and always superbly presented. Jaimey satisfied all our needs and always had the hot sauce on the table - as some of us like spicy food! The food was so good, we asked for many of Jaimey’s recipes.

The itinerary was perfect for us and, even though the weather (north swell) wasn’t always kind, we managed to sail to bays we had never visited before.

Always happy with Sailing Directions’ service - can’t think of anything you can improve.

This was our second charter on Split Second and our second visit to the BVIs - we fell in love with the crew and the islands.

Ryan, Veronika and Justin were a great team and couldn't do more for us.

Split Second was spotlessly clean. The fly bridge was definitely the favorite aspect, although the younger members of our party loved the seats on the bow.

Veronika's culinary skills were excellent and the food was always well presented. She customized the menu according to our individual tastes and we always left her with clean plates!

The itinerary was perfect for our family - from deserted beaches to lively bars.

Sailing Directions helped make our vacation one we will never forget.
