Meet the Crew

Ricky & Jessica-Lynn

CAPTAIN RICKY MOSS:

My name is Ricky Moss and I am delighted to be your Captain aboard The Annex. I grew up in a small town along the Garden Route of South Africa, Mossel Bay. Through out my childhood I spent most of days on the water naturally creating a love for the ocean and sailing. I gained a great amount of experience and knowledge when I decided to sail the globe in 2009 crossing the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. After my sailing adventure I spent 5 years in South Africa learning about Marine Electronics and Fishing. My craving to be back on the ocean started in 2015 when I then decided to start my career in Chartering together with Chef Jessica and deckhand Lloyd. Since then we have never looked back. I look forward to meeting you aboard and showing you first hand why I love doing what I do.

CHEF/HOSTESS:

My name is Jessica-Lynn Muller and I look forward to being your Chef aboard The Annex and giving you a unique food experience boasting with only the freshest and finest local produce. In 2015 I completed an 8 Week Chef Training Course and simply became obsessed with flavor and cuisine. I have an eye for detail and passion for creating, and continuously work this into my Chef career. I am proud in presenting my dishes and am versatile in alternative dietary options ensuring it to be an amazing experience for you on board. In 2015 I started my sailing charter career with Ricky and as he said I have never looked back. I look forward to share with you my friendly and bubbly character enhancing your relaxed and great summer vacation. Warm welcome aboard The Annex...read more

Ricky, Jessica and Lloyd have worked together on many previous charters and all look forward to welcoming you aboard THE ANNEX.

1ST MATE/SOUS CHEF:

Lloyd grew up on South Africa’s coastline and has always had a close connection to the Ocean. Lloyd has completed both the RYA chef and deckhand training to be a multifaceted crew member. There is something incredible about being out on the water and working in the yachting industry that has allowed Lloyd to share that love with all. The Annex crew has worked together in the past and has created a true family aboard giving guests a unique experience full of the beauty from the sea and the passion from the crew.

Shane, Anne, and Erin,
There is no way to put into words how incredible you made our stay on The Annex! You three are a seamless, well-oiled machine that made everything feel effortless (and we know how much hard work it is)!! Your kindness, smiling faces, enthusiasm, knowledge of the BVI, well, just all of it, made our trip simply stupendous. We have been fortunate enough to have experienced a number of charters throughout the Caribbean, and you three shine above the rest!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The whole crew is extremely accomplished;it’s hard to believe how young they are.
Shane is such a smooth sailor; we saw places we had never been before; negotiated the winds and weather so easily; always on top of things
Wonderful sense of humor
Terrific food; had the best steaks we have ever eaten anywhere; all of their cuts of meat and fish; food was top quality
They really knew how to walk the line between being crew and being friends

We were very excited when my father gave us the news that we were all going on this charter. Our vacation couldn't have been better. It was really a special week! Shane, Anne, and Erin are outstanding and we were very lucky to have them as our captain and crew. They are extremely professional and from early in the morning until late at night they made sure every day was perfect in every way. The Annex is a beautiful, comfortable and pristine yacht! I wish we were still there.

Shane is a superb captain and has a ton of local knowledge!
Anne runs the Annex as a tight ship attending to every detail!
Erin is an outstanding chef!
Great Team!!


Yes, we truly had an excellent time-the crew and boat exceeded our expectations in every way. Shane, Anne & Erin are a super capable crew that anticipated and fulfilled our every need. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and when the kids are happy then we’re all happy.

Thanks so much,

There is a boat called The Annex, it is a large, beautiful boat. We had soo much fun and drank quite a bit of rum. Al entertained us with funny quotes. Charlotte lead the way on our snorkeling floats. Erin filled our tummies with lots of great food. Shane and Anne were always in such a great mood. Lisa was so very dependable when it came to safety first. While Scott made sure we all had something to quench our thirst. Mary Catherine showed up as the life of the party. While Davids laugh is quite hardy. Brooksie showed up with his special shirt on Valentines night. And Lele thought the entire trip was just r-i-g-h-t right!

Love,

Thank you for such an amazing trip and putting up with our craziness. Could not have asked for a better crew. The food was amazing, the drinks were strong and the company was unbeatable. Thanks for allowing me to tag along at night and treating all of us to the BEST family vacation. It is safe to say I now know what to say when asked what my favorite place I have visited is. Please let me know next time you are in the states. Party on!!

What an amazing week! We couldn't have asked for a better family vacation. Although it was the second time in the BVI's for CD and I, there were still new things for us to do and see. Erin was a great addition to your crew! So sweet of her to make Danielle and Richie's anniversary so special and to recognize Danielle's birthday. We chose this boat because its where Shane and Anne were and neither they, nor the boat, disappointed. Thanks for everything and we'll be back.

CD and Jamie
Amazing
The Annex is amazing, we were living the life in the BVI! Gorgeous boat, unbelievable food, cocktails aplenty.... and great friends. We had a blast!
Incredible Adventure
All I can say is what an incredible adventure in the BVI with this crew! Truly an amazing experience - one we will never forget! Top-notch all the way. And SOOOOO much fun! Lots of indelible memories and etched in our minds forever. THANK YOU Shane Taylor, Anne Taylor and Gabrielle. We all miss you dearly!

What was going to be our trip of a lifetime is now our..."when can we sail again" vacation. We LOVED everything about our adventure and were so glad that Shane and Anne were our crew. The fact that we didn't have to make a decision for 7 straight days and we were taken to a more beautiful place each day was certainly the highlight. We asked for an active vacation and were given the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. We would recommend the Gypsy Princess and Shane & Anne to the most discerning guests. It was an absolutely PERFECT experience from start to finish!! We left with great tans, fabulous pictures, a lifetime of memories and 2 new, dear friends! A HUGE Thank you To Shane and Anne ("Shepard & Bo Peep") from your "Lost Sheep" (Matt & Shelley, Jared & Heather)...until we can sail again!!!!
FEBRUARY 2015
Dear Anne & Shane,

The best surprise was getting you two as our crew. Edward's birthday celebration was above and beyond the best ever!
Anne your meals were fantastic and Shane's crerative drinks were anticipated daily. Your professionalism and knowledge of the BVI made every stop a wonder. Your hospitality was heart felt and we wanted for nothing. We look forward to sailing with you again in the near future. Until then hope to see you in New York.

Overall this charter was above and beyond our expectations. For one of the couples it was their first charter and for the rest of us it was a repeat. Our Captain Shane was very knowledgeable in all aspects of our journey. He also had mad bar-tendering skills, always coming up with great new drinks. Anne prepared fabulous meals which never disappointed. Their cheerful personalities were contagious and the perfect weather all added up to a very restful and enjoyable week. Can not wait to sail again :)

Fondly, Jeanne, Edwrd, Sharon, Frank, Helen and Ronnie
P.S. Hope to sail on the "Shaneannakin" someday!
FEBRUARY 2015
We walked on board and there was a bottle of champagne chilling with snacks and appetizers waiting for us. Shane Taylor and Anne van Riel were waiting for us with smiles on their faces ready to show us a good time!!! AND THEY DID
Honestly, Shane and Anne were 2 of the nicest people I have ever met in my life!! So full of energy; willing to assist you in whatever you wanted. But, more importantly, just nice honest people. We spent many hours during the charter just getting to know them and their background. I would look no further for a crew for another charter in the BVI or elsewhere. And, if I ever have the opportunity to buy a yacht with a crew, Shane and Anne would be my first choice for a crew.
JANUARY 2015
Thank you is such a small few words to express the memories you have offered Donovan and I as well as our friends. What was a "Bucket List" trip is now an annual one soley due to both of you. Your knowledge and kindness truly make a difference and we thank you for that! Always keeping in touch until 2016 when we meet again!
If you find yourselves in Northern Cal you always have a place to stay with us. Thank you for sharing your passion with us.
Sincerely, Suzi and Donovan

Where do we even begin...Laughter is good for the soul & there certainly was no shortage of that. We came here for a trip of a lifetime & left with just that. We feel so lucky to have made lifetime friends in the two of you. Thank you for being so wonderful. The food, the scenery, the company & the memories were nothing short of perfect. You might have 2 babies made on this trip - we will make sure their names are Anne & Shane:)
Cheers-Until next time...

We loved having Shane and Anna as our crew, thanks to them this trip was so incredible. Shane is an excellent captain, knowledgeable, always willing to please, responsible, smart, good conversationalist and he prepares the best drinks! Anna delighted us with all her dishes, always catering to our tastes and needs; she is the sweetest. Despite their young age, they are very mature and we couldn't have chosen a better crew for this trip. We would hire them again without doubt!

This was a wonderful family vacation! As Shane as our captain and Anne our chef, we couldn't have been in better hands! Shane and Anne were both very knowledgeable about the different areas we saw each day. In addition, Shane made sure our boys were very busy with fun-filled activities. Anne was a great chef and made sure there were always snacks available after each one of our excursions. Her dishes were not only delicious, but the presentation each and every meal was quite impressive. I would recommend this trip to anyone!

Amazing boat, delightful crew, exquisite service, an absolutely unforgettable holiday! We ate so much but we burned some calories using the wake-board. Thanks for the extra pounds and the muscle-aches (just kidding). Thanks so much for the laughter, the delicious food and treating us like kings and queens. I hope you enjoy the future and I expect an invitation to return to the BVI in two years!! It was super to hear your experiences. Just Married! Elo
