Richard and Jan have a wealth of sailing experience having spent years sailing the temperate waters of the North European Atlantic coast and the warmer climes of the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic, then sailed over 6,000 miles circumnavigating the Caribbean Sea. Richard has been sailing since childhood and holds an MCA approved Masters Offshore Certificate for Sailing Vessels up to 200T as well as being an ASA (American Sailing Association) qualified keelboat sailing & navigation instructor for ASA 101-103-104-105.
Since 2009, Richard & Jan have been providing crewed charter vacations aboard their yacht, Scorpio. As owner-operators they pride themselves on the service they offer as well as the facilities and condition of their yacht. Unusually, they do not confine their charters to one particular area; you can charter Scorpio almost anywhere throughout the Caribbean Leeward & Windward Islands, from the ever popular, sheltered waters of the British & US Virgin Islands in the north to the less well trodden paradise of the Grenadines at the southern end of the island chain and all points in between.
Richard & Jan are both keen scuba divers; Richard holds a PADI professional Divemaster qualification and Jan is a PADI certified Rescue Diver; both have first-aid training. Richard will be delighted to show you the fantastic undersea world of the Caribbean, either snorkeling or scuba diving. For those not qualified but who would like to try scuba diving, Richard can provide a PADI Discover Scuba course. Whether admiring the spectacular coral reef or exploring sunken wrecks, the wonders below the waves are not to be missed.
Sailing & diving aside, Richard doubles as your waiter, barman, guide and all-round Mr. Fixit, while Jan does all the hard work providing your delicious meals! Jans style of cooking is varied wherever possible, she likes to use local ingredients to provide meals with a Caribbean flavor but retains and reproduces all the wonderful flavors of Mediterranean cooking experienced in her earlier travels.
Richard and Jan both gave up successful professional careers to pursue their dream afloat. Richard worked in major UK distribution businesses and Jan in human resources in both public & private sectors. Not only did they thrive in this professional environment requiring the provision of high quality services to very demanding customers but they actually enjoyed the challenge.
They look forward to welcoming you as guests aboard Scorpio and to providing the vacation of a lifetime in the beautiful Caribbean Sea.
