Terry & Ruth
Terry and Ruth are a charming couple from Ireland who have spent the past few years running charter yachts in the Virgin Islands and becoming a part of the BVI community.
Terry has been messing around on boats since he was a child. He started sailing dinghies and then moved onto larger boats. Despite being a qualified electrician, he always yearned to turn his hobby into a career, and following his first trans-Atlantic crossing with friends, he decided to do just that.
He is a commercially endorsed MCA Yachtmaster (both sail and power). He has also been both helm and launching authority for his local branch of Irelands volunteer lifeboat service.
Terry’s other great passion is scuba diving and he looks forward to showing the delights that the Caribbean has to offer to The Big Dog’s guests. Diving is included for certified divers only. For uncertified divers, the crew can arrange a rendezvous with one of the local dive companies or snorkeling is always an option.
Ruth worked as a teacher before joining Terry for a career in sailing. She has always enjoyed cooking and has taken cookery courses in schools such as Rick Stein’s Seafood School in Padstow, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland. She prepares a diverse range of meals, and particularly loves using local fresh produce whenever possible. She is more than happy to accommodate any special dietary requests...read more
Together Ruth and Terry have run a charter yachts in the Bahamas and the Caribbean. They have crossed the Atlantic together 4 times, have cruised extensively around the Caribbean, Bahamas, Miami, the Mediterranean, Atlantic Islands and of course at home in Ireland. Most recently, they have been running catamaran charters in the beautiful BVIs and have come to know and love the area and its magnificent anchorages. They look forward to sharing them with you.
They are a very welcoming couple who work as a team in all aspects of the running of the boat. It is very important to them that each guest that they welcome on board The Big Dog enjoys every moment of their stay and has a vacation to remember forever.
