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

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.
