Cory and Emily both have a strong love for the water and anything fun in the sun. Together they make a magnificent team and will go above and beyond to make your vacation memories last a lifetime.
Cory's passion for water sports started at a young age while growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, a few miles from Annapolis, Maryland, the Nation's sailing capital. He has over 20 years of experience skippering, racing, teaching and captaining sailboats and is willing to show anyone the ins and outs of the sport. He has been cruising the Caribbean since the late 90’s aboard large sailing catamarans and can share his extensive knowledge of the islands, restaurants and culture with you. With a passion for cooking and 3 years in the restaurant service industry as a craft cocktail bartender, he and Emily will provide first class dining and beverages while accommodating any customer requests or needs. As a team, they share responsibilities in the galley preparing meals and catering to their guests.
Emily comes from a family of charter boat captains. While being raised on Tybee Island, Georgia, she was taught from a young age everything about the charter industry; inshore/ offshore fishing, dolphin eco-tours, fossil hunts and enjoys educating others about the natural eco-systems. She has always had a passion for the water which began behind a boat, wakeboarding and water-skiing. She has 15 years' experience in the restaurant service industry, working at one of the nation's top restaurants, learning from award winning chef's, managers and wine sommeliers. Emily is also a certified Yoga instructor and loves leading practices on the beach, paddle boards and sailboats. She'll help center your mind during one of her practices in the world's most beautiful setting.
Cory and Emily fell in love the summer of 2012 and have been attached at the hip ever since. Together, they ran a successful standup paddle board and kiteboarding retail store in St. Augustine, Florida and married in 2017. Their passion for travel, kitesurfing and scuba diving lead them to chartering catamarans for their clients in the Bahamas where they quickly realized they wanted a lifestyle change. They are both USCG Certified Captains; Cory with his Master License, Auxiliary Sailing Endorsement and STCW, Emily with her 6-Pack and STCW.
They would love to have you aboard one of their sailing vacations. Their unique experiences, certifications and qualities will ensure you have the best possible vacation in the Virgin Islands with a laid back, professional couple who put safety and customer satisfaction first.
