Captain Gordon Holden
Chef/First Mate/Caitlin

Meet Gordon Holden, your Captain on 3 Sisters! He is 27 from Buffalo NY and has been around the water his whole life. He grew up on the shores of Lake Erie sailing/swimming/waterskiing with family and friends in addition to spending summers at Lake Muskoka in Ontario Canada doing much of the same.
His family owns a C&C 33ft sailboat on Lake Erie that he and his 3 brothers learned to sail from an early age. In addition to sailing, he was the captain of my high school swimming and diving team as well as the local rugby club. He has always had a passion for the water and has sailed in a variety of locations across the globe.
During summer breaks in college, he worked in high end hospitality establishments in East Hampton & Montauk NY and enjoyed providing unique experiences to guests. A few years after graduating college with a Business Administration & History Degree, he worked in Corporate for some time and decided to leave his desk behind and hit the water full time! Gordon obtained his captain and sailing credentials and spent this past season working flotilla charters in the Mediterranean, mainly Croatia and Greece. He is excited to spend this coming winter sailing in the Virgin Islands. In his free time you can find him exploring the local islands & culture or somewhere on deck with a good book.

Caitlin was born on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts and moved to Breckenridge, CO when she was 4 years old. Growing up in the mountains of Colorado was a wonderful upbringing that allowed her to explore skiing, snowboarding and a 15 year-long figure skating career. Her parents are from Florida, so despite being raised in a landlocked state, every family vacation was spent in the sand, sun & salt water.

Caitlin was raised with the values of hosting social gatherings and creating memorable events to last lifetime, many times shared over a great meal prepared side by side with her culinary trained father and brother - a family affair.

Her family owned a small fine dining restaurant in a beautiful ski town which held the space for celebrations including proposals, anniversaries, birthdays, and special holidays. Her mother handled the reservations and office duties while her father designed and supervised seasonal menus inspired by his diverse background working in top-echelon restaurants throughout the United States. Caitlin´s earliest memories include setting the restaurant up for dinner service, taking reservations, decorating for the holidays and on the busiest nights of the year working as a hostess. She has always loved the art of entertainment shared over a delicious meal and fabulous cocktails.

After 6 years of working as a concert marketer in the music industry, Caitlin made a career change and began working for a dive shop out of Boulder, CO. This new position opened her eyes to exploring the 72% of our planet which remains beneath the surface. Upon obtaining her scuba certification she then went on to live in Cozumel, Mexico for a year followed by obtaining her divemaster and PADI Instructor certifications in Utila, Honduras.

She looks forward to sharing her love for the ocean with you and creating those very special moments together around the dining table.

Gordon and Caitlin look forward to hosting you on 3 Sisters this season.

NYE at Foxy’s was a blast!

Thank you so much Gordon and Caitlin, for an incredible week! We had so much fun swimming, sunning, sailing and celebrating NYE at Foxy’s!

Thanks for all the thoughtful planning and incredible food, we loved laughing out with both of you and partying a little…

We couldn’t have gotten luckier with our crew and are so happy we got to ring in the New Year with such fun people in a beautiful place!

Great food, great fun, great trip!

Thank you so much for welcoming us into your floating home and life! Spending a week on a boat has been a bucket dream for me and this week did not disappoint.

Caitlin - your patience and kindness to help me get my daughters out of their comfort zone and into the ocean will never be forgotten.

Thank you both for sharing who you are and the gifts you each have to share!
Great food, great fun, great trip!

Unforgettable Honeymoon

Thank you for such an amazing unforgettable honeymoon! Such a wonderful time on the 3 Sisters and you two made it the trip of a lifetime.
All I can say is Trellis Bay Full Moon Party - EPIC! We loved every second of it.
We couldn´t have asked for a better crew! You both are living your dream! Don´t ever change.

This vacation was a dream come true!!

To be able to be on this boat and share our 10yr anniversary with such remarkable people elevated a tremendous experience . The food and drinks were unreal! The route we took was perfect! The sea life, the gorgeous islands, the great history and sailing knowledge shared fed our brains with amazement. But the best was swapping stories like we had been friends our whole lives. Thank you both for this experience!

Amazing Vacation

This was a bucket list trip for the both of us and even more pleasurable with you. The route was well-planned, safety at all times, snorkeling and hiking were great experiences, and the food was delicious!

You both worked hard to ensure our needs were met and even providing an education with sailing and recipes. We enjoyed the conversation and learning your backgrounds. Your parents would be so proud of what you are doing and how you are using their teachings and spread unending joy to other people.

Capt Gordon, your life experience has been vast and it melts our heart to know your dad made his ceiling your floor.

Caitlin, way to take a leap of faith and work towards your dreams. Your love of the water shows and appreciated your relaxed snorkeling tours, conversation and healthy food!

Remarkable People

This vacation has been a dream of Sara and I for almost as long as our marriage milestone of marriage we are celebrating. - 10 years. To be able to be on this boat and share it with such remarkable people elevated a tremendous experience. The food and drink were unreal and we loved celebrating your phenomenal Bearnaise sauce.

The route we took was perfect. The sealife, the gorgeous islands, the great history and sailing knowledge shared fed our brains with amazement! But the best was swapping stories like we had been friends our whole lives late into the evening, like we do on our trips back home.

Thank you both for this experience.


Totally totally enjoyed the week with you guys. We felt comfortable in every experience and the food was awesome!
Adventures in the sun have always been fun but when new friends we meet it becomes more sweet. We hope to do this again.
Thank you for all the work y´all put into our vacation.

´Go with the Flow´ itinerary was just what we needed!!

Our one week on 3 Sisters with Nick and Maddie was so amazing. The memories created were so special and Nick and Maddie were a big part of that. The ´go with the flow´ itinerary was just what we needed and Nick had great insight on where to take us. Maddie´s cooking was delicious - so fresh and flavorful! Our bellies were very happy. :) And her drinks were top notch. Both went above and beyond to make sure my teen was happy and content which my husband and I truly appreciated! Our days and evenings were filled with lots of snorkeling, relaxing, some cruising, Taylor Swift music, gin rummy (sorry Vanessa schooled you, Nick!), fun conversations, and lots of laughs! Some highlights include the turtles at Maho Bay, a close call with a flying ray, tarpum feedings, octupus sightings, and an attempt at cliff jumping! We had such a spectacular time that we are looking forward to our next adventure with Nick and Maddie!!

This was a pure dream for us!

We had the best time on 3 Sisters!
Thank you for all of the amazing experiences! The paddling, the sailing, the snorkeling and the FOOD!
Oh, Maddy I´m going to miss your amazing cooking!
This was a pure dream for us. A time we will never forget and can only hope that we can repeat in the near future!
The BEST way to spend our 10yr Anniversary!

Carpe Diem!

At 60 years old and our honeymoon, it was absolutely amazing! Our first time traveling with my 4 years of sailing experience and my husbands 50 years of sailing experience.
Bar none amazing time with an incredible crew!
When we come to sail again we want Nick and Maddie without a doubt!

A Place Where Families Get Together And Reconnect.

My parents had this vision of creating a place where families could get together, reconnect, share laughs and experience God´s beautiful handy work.

The 3 sisters gives us all the chance to feed the soul and just suspend time for a bit. Words cannot capture our gratitude to Nick and Maddy for bringing this vision to life, not only to our motley crew, but to everyone that comes onboard the 3 Sisters.

This week was beautiful and perfectly times. the food, laughs and new friendships had here will never be forgotten

Amazing Vacation!

Thank you to an incredible Captain and Crew.
Captain Nick ensured a great use of our time and resources,. We saw and swam with sea turtles for the first time; saw plantation ruins from colonial days.

Every meal onboard was Delicious! Even the Kale :) Thank you Maddie for every fabulous meal. Your hard work and concern for our comfort were greatly appreciated.

Overall an unbelievable time!
Great charter with a fantastic chemistry onboard.

Inimitable Grace and Charm!

The peace, the beauty, the sun, the stars, the sparkling water, the kindness and the friendship - we loved every minute and while the boat, the sea and the fish and turtles were unforgettable, you two made it all truly wonderful!

We loved the conversations, the food and the drinks and the total relaxation you provided was a special experience.

Loved how you made my birthday special and took care of us all week.

We wish you two free spirits have much to enjoy in your future adventures and go on learning and growing and meeting life´s challenges with your inimitable grace and charm.
