Ryan & Jill
Captain Ryan is from a little fishing town called Shady Side, nestled along Maryland's western shore. Growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, he was naturally drawn to the water. Ryan learned to sail when he was eleven years old. When he was sixteen, he became a certified US Sailing Instructor and ran his local junior sailing program. Ryan's coastal urge led him to the warmer waters of Wilmington, North Carolina where he attended Cape Fear's Marine Technology School and acquired his 100 ton Master Captain's License. During the summer, you would find Ryan teaching surf lessons at Wrightsville Beach and sailing with his friends as often as he could.
Jill grew up in the sailing capital of the United States, Annapolis- Maryland. College brought her south to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where she earned a degree in Health and Applied Science. Upon graduation, Jill packed her bags and bought a one-way ticket to New Zealand where she lived and worked for the Red Cross for a year. Not long after her return to Wilmington, North Carolina, she started her own personal training business called Shore Fitness and spent her mid-day breaks running at the beach, surfing, and or going to yoga.
Ryan and Jill met through mutual friends and their first date was a road trip. Their similar passions for surfing, traveling, sailing, and good music made it natural for these two fish to fall for one another. What they didn't know was that from here on out- the world would become their oyster. 'Will work for travel' was their motto! Throughout their travels Ryan and Jill were introduced to many new recipes and cooking styles from which they continue to share with friends and family. Each would take turns replicating their favorite dishes like: fresh catch fish tacos, thai chicken lettuce wraps, island ceviche, tostones with mango-habanero guacamole, grilled street corn with chipotle mayo, honey barbecue chicken pizza, pretty much anything that they craved on a weekly basis. Jill brings her love for tasty international flavors directly to the White House galley, but is also well-versed in American classics and special diets like gluten free, vegan and paleo. ..read more
By 2016, Ryan and Jill bought their very first home, a 1985 Niagara 35' sailboat named Nalu and moved back to the Chesapeake Bay. Vacation time no longer consisted of long plane rides, but long sails. Jill became a yoga and SUP instructor and Ryan spent his time developing his maritime skills: chartering boats, rigging, surveying, and gaining lots of valuable sea time as a boat delivery captain.
Ryan and Jill are an energetic, enthusiastic and experienced crew ready to treat guests to fun, memorable holidays. They have transformed their love for having fun above and below the water into a great vacation package for active groups, families and those wanting to get the most out of their trip!

Ryan and Jill were awesome. In the 2 weeks leading up to our arrival Jill was in regular contact with our whole gang on little details from food, drinks and activities. They even got a coconut tree for us to plant on an island.
We enjoyed the entire boat from the trampolines, hanging out front under the sun shade and chilling on the back of the boat.
I am certain there is no other crew that was as prepared food-wise as these guys. I am not sure how many cruises I have been on but it probably more than 24. If I took the best meals from all of those cruises, it wouldn't come close to the food that we ate last week, not even close!
Our charter broker, John, was very responsive the whole time. We will definitely book another trip in the year or 2.
Kevin B, aboard Catamaran White House sailing the Virgin Islands
Ryan and Jill were fantastic. Ryan is an excellent captain and Jill is equally good as a chef. They spoiled us. They are also very patient, answered all of our questions and were fun to hang out with.
We enjoyed the owners-version suite which was quite spacious. We really enjoyed sitting on the back part of the boat reading and watching the beautiful scenery as we sailed by.
The food was excellent. Jill’s presentations were beautiful. We experienced a new area to spend the night every day. They were all fun and scenic. Very happy with all aspects of the trip. We are certain that we will do this again one day.
Russ K, aboard Catamaran White House sailing the Virgin Islands
Jill and Ryan were FANTASTIC! We have chartered many times and our whole group enjoyed everything they did, couldn't be more accommodating. Great Crew.
We have chartered Lagoon 50s before, Whitehouse is exceptionally well maintained and equipped. Great Boat
Jill got everything we wanted and requested. The food was too good, I gained 10 lbs. Again, The meals were great, they always offered snacks etc.
We had a great trip, perfect New Years at Anegada at a restaurant they suggested. The hurricane damage was not apparent in our trip, the islands are green, the water is blue and all is beautiful.. unless you look for damage.
Sailing Directions and John Lane were extremely professional and very attentive to accommodate us in sorting through the complications the hurricanes presented, Well done!
I like your website the best as far as crewed charter sites go because you post real pictures of boats the you took, not promotional stuff that could be out of date. I would refer you anytime and will use you in the future.

Couldn't imagine two better hosts - Tyler & Kelsey were extremely accommodating on all fronts, made us feel welcome and at home and helped us to make the most of the time we had aboard.
Each meal was better than the last and, they were extremely accommodating to account for everyone's tastes and preferences. The yacht is very clean and comfortable.
We will recommend Sailing Directions for sure.
Andy M, aboard Catamaran White House sailing the Virgin Islands
Best trip ever! Tyler and Kelsey were excellent. The food was incredible from start to finish. Both Tyler and Kelsey are fantastic chefs. Wouldn't change a thing. We enjoyed the room to spread out and enough privacy to get away.
