Jamie & Thea
Jamie was born in Zimbabwe and started out working life in the field of electrical engineering and building construction. After leaving Zimbabwe in 1984 with his wife Thea and their young children, they lived for 11 years in the beautiful wilds and outdoors of Botswana. Subsequently they spent 8 years in Cape Town and here Jamie started following his dream and with friends and family began recreational sailing around the unpredictable African wild East and West coasts and off Cape Town. After landing a job as a Projects Manager in the UK, he and Thea moved to the United Kingdom where they have lived for 10 years. It was in these waters Jamie decided that a 9 to 5 job was not for him and so decided to pursue a professional sailing career in the yachting industry and in the process has sailed the strong tidal waters of the Solent off Portsmouth and Southampton and up the West and East coast of UK, including cross channel sailing to the Channel Islands, France and the Brittany coasts. He now holds the RYA Yacht Master Certification. In addition to sailing the coasts of South Africa, the U.K., he has also sailed briefly in the Bahamas and the Caribbean islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Jamie’s electrical engineering, building and managerial background contribute to his captain’s skills, expert seamanship and in-depth understanding of the varied mechanical, electrical and digital systems aboard Yachts. Jamie also holds the PADI open water diving qualification and loves exploring the beauty below the waves.

Thea was born in South Africa and at a very young age moved to Zimbabwe, where she met and married Jamie. She pursued careers in retail merchandising, accounting and hospitality both in Africa and the UK. She has always loved cooking and whilst in Cape Town owned her own bistro. Thea loves sports and the outdoors, having played tennis and hockey at club level and enjoyed water skiing. Since moving to the UK, Thea took more interest in yachting, and immediately hopped on board with Jamie’s decision to pursue a sailing career and rekindled her love for cooking by attending the renowned Ashburton School of Cookery in Devon, England where she did the Mediterranean and Fish and Seafood courses. She is looking forward to putting her culinary and social skills to work for guests aboard BLOSSOM in the BVIs with her husband Jamie.
Jamie and Thea’s life experiences in Africa and the United Kingdom combined with their sailing, world travel and gourmet cooking, and not forgetting the best BBQ´s / South African ´Braai´s´, and their warm hospitality, will guarantee you the vacation of a lifetime, every time, aboard the Luxury Catamaran BLOSSOM.

Hospitality and Warmth

Dear Jamie & Thea,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. I am very grateful for your hospitality and warmth. I enjoyed your presence very much and I will be incorporating some of your words into my life, especially cheeky monkey! Fate thee well for the next leg of your journey!

-Sara

Thoroughly Enjoyable!

Dear Captain Jamie and Thea,
Thank you so very much for a thoroughly enjoyable time from our point of origin to our point of departure. Everything exceeded our expectations. Captain Jamie´s patience in explaining navigation and endless runs to shuttle us was greatly appreciated. Thea´s cooking and kindness was the best. You both love what you do, and it was so obvious to both of us.

Love,
Roy and Erin

Unforgettable!

You two made this experience unforgettable. It´s been a dream come true. Your personality, attitude, patience and genuine love shines and any guest will be most fortunate to have you two as crew and friends. Come see us in Nashville anytime, you´re welcome at our home.

Happy Sailing,
Brad and Tracey

Late March, 2018, guests with Jamie and Thea on catamaran BLOS

Dear Jamie and Thea,
Where do we begin? Such a wonderful trip!
Thank you so much for showing us around the BVI. We can´t wait to return. Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home and treating us as if we were family. You two make such a wonderful team. Please keep in touch with us and would love to see you guys when you arrive in Florida.
Love,
Matt, Shannon, Gavin, and Madison

Generous hospitality...

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We can´t thank you enough for your kind and generous hospitality. The trip exceeded all expectations and created memories that will last a lifetime. The opportunity to spend New Years eve at the Bitter End was made even more special with your son Grant and his Fiance Tara. We felt like honorary members of your clan and ringing in 2016 could not have been better! Your attention to every detail made our every hope for this trip a reality. It is great to see a couple as happy together as the two of you. Your enthusiasm and passion is truly infectious.
Alright, enough of this sentimental stuff...Lets raise a glass of Rum and celebrate great times + great new friends.
Love, Bobby, Mellissa, Mike & Kelley

Amazing!

Jaime and Thea,
What an adventure we have had together. Beautiful bays and coves, perfect overnight locations, crazy strong winds, rain clouds keeping Jaime on his feet, THE BATHS, seeing most of the best spots the BVI has to offer. Thea´s and my crazy steep drive over Tortola to the Road Town clinic, coughing & more coughing, Jaime putting on the Chefs hat, beautiful sunny days & clear blue water.
Thea you have wrecked my husband for my future cooking. I will aspire to follow in your amazing food foot steps.
Both of your big hearts, kind nature & ´welcome aboard to your boat´ attitude made our week with you amazing!!
Adriane & Michael

Wonderful week

Jamie and Thea,
Thank you both for such a wonderful week. The food was absolutely delicious every night (as were the drinks...) and you took us to some wonderful places that suited us perfectly. Thank you also for being so kind to the kids (and chatting with them while we slept) You were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome and incredibly well looked after!
The Sacks family

Perfect vacation

Our vacation was perfect from start to finish. The hospitality incredible, the food wonderful and the destinations just beautiful. Thea & Jamie were gracious hosts and WOW can Thea cook. Jamie knew exactly where to take us for the best diving and scenery.
We highly recommend J&T for the very best vacation.
Stacey and Larry

We needed this...

Simply put, this is the vacation we desperately needed. After a year of nonstop work and stress, this was what we needed most. Thanks for seeing to our very need and desires throughout the trip. Your expertise and suggestions on mooring sites helped us to navigate beyond the over crowded beaches and bays of the high season. The meals were fantastic and desert was a perpetual ´yes´ when we didn´t think we could eat anymore. The boat is our favorite so far because of the large suites and overall wonderful layout. Our highest complements to the crews and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Best wishes and thank you for everything.
Jeremy and Emily

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We want to thank you both for the wonderful opportunity to spend our vacation with both of you. We have sailed in the BVI many times since 1980.
You were both accommodating, helpful, friendly, kind and generous with your time and talents. The food was delicious and presented in such a lovely way. Your knowledge of the islands was unsurpassed. Thank you for keeping is SAFE.
Love,
Bill and Robin

Best birthday!

We came for Janis´s birthday on the 32rd...and what a week this has been. Jaime and Thea...you have been like real friends, welcoming and courteous. This was our first experience on a sail boat and will be remembered for ever. We saw the best of the Virgin Islands-very beautiful beaches, The food was excellent and the company exquisite. We certainly licked out and feel very privileged to have met you and spent the week. Your boat is immaculate. The service was so attentive...indeed a privilege and a great experience. Best of luck with all your future charters.
We would love to do this again.
Janis and Guy

Charter Guests with Jamie and Thea said:

´Absolutely fabulous!´

´We sailed with my wife and 2 daughters, 9 and 8. We all loved Jamie and Thea and highly recommend them for any charter. ´

´From the moment we met Jamie and Thea it was if we had known them for years. They are the consummate hosts and meet your every need before you even know you have one! This is the best boat with the best hosts in the BVI. We will be back!´

´What a wonderful experience this was! Jamie and Thea were an absolute joy to be around. They had a wonderful sense of humor and great knowledge of the BVIs. We loved spending NYE with them. I can´t wait to book our next adventure!´

´It was our friends first time chartering and in the BVI so it was great fun to be with them and share. Thea and Jamie were exceptional hosts! Clean and relaxing environment, wonderful sized staterooms and baths, Thea´s food was wonderful and she did a great job catering to one of our folks who is a ´little bit picky´, Jamie and Thea both showed us the ropes on chartering - teaching us along the way. Couldn´t have asked for a better boat or crew! ´

Therapeutic and wonderful

Dear Thea and Jamie,
Thank you for an amazing week of food, snorkeling, and exploring the beautiful islands. You have made us feel completely at home and relaxed. It has been therapeutic and wonderful family time. We are blessed to have met both of you and look forward to sailing with you again in the future.

All the best to you-
Doug, Sharon, Joseph, and Lilli

Amazing week

Jamie and Thea,
Just wanted to say thank you for the amazing week we spent on the boat. It was our first time sailing, but definitely not our last. The boys had a blast and don´t even want to go home. Thank you for the amazing food and Elan´s birthday party. Hope to see you again on our next charter!

-Akiva, Ora, Elan, and Eliam

Incredible

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We can´t thank you enough for the great vacation. Your knowledge of the islands and kindness with putting up with 3 crazy teenage boys is everything we could have hoped for. The food and drinks were incredible and your attention to us was something we aren´t used to! Wishing you many happy sunsets in the future.

I had a fabulous time! Thank you for teaching me everything.
-Marshall

This was probably the most relaxing trip I´ve ever taken. Thank you for your generosity.
-Lucas

Great trip! Jamie and Thea are the parents I never had!
-Helene

Outstanding week!

What an outstanding week you´ve given us here in the BVI. The sights we´ve had the pleasure of seeing thanks to y´alls suggestions were nothing short of spectacular! We can´t even describe how wonderfully tasty all the meals and snacks were! (yes, diet starts tomorrow). Your friendship and laughter added so much to the week. Thank you both so much for everything. Remember, y´all are always welcome in Texas! And Coco, the island boy may try to keep you. His tank can float a boat.

All the best,
Steve, Cindy, Lacey, Kyle, and Coco

Amazing week

Dear Jamie and Thea,
What an amazing week of sun, snorkeling, adventure and delicious meals. I feel like we have not only had an incredible vacation, but made great new friends. If you ever make it to Colorado, make sure to allow us to return some hospitality.

Joe and Callie

Truly a joy!! Most amazing food & kindest people. I felt like I was with family. So safe, so beautiful. Everything was there before we could ask - you can´t get that from a website description. It´s fate that we found you both! We will be back (fingers closed).

Bless you both and until next time:)
Erin, Patty + Wayne
