Captain Ray Devine and Chef/Steward SYLVIE REESE combine their love for sailing, and commitment to exceptional hospitality to guarantee guests wonderful memories aboard Devine Sailing. They are passionate about the experience they deliver, cultivating a feeling of adventure and joy, that is sure to last far beyond your time in their care.

CHEF REIS (Sylvie) is high energy, adventurous, creative with a positive attitude towards life. She is a true artist with an immense passion for cooking and living on the ocean. During her last college years as an illustrator, she was also training to be a military cook. In her twenties she worked on ships, in bush camps and officer dinners for up to 350 people for the Canadian Naval Reserves during 7 years. At 27 she starts a family and lives in the forest, in an off the grid log house in the Lower Laurentians in Canada. At 32 she starts her Art School Studio at home and at 40 she opens a public Village Art School Studio Gallery Café & Hostel.

At 48, Sylvie starts her first sailing adventures in the Caribbean as a crew/cook/first mate on sailboats for passages and deliveries. A year later she sells everything, closes her studio and buys a sailboat. She and her partner sailed from Canada down south, all over the Caribbean for 7 years. While sailing she also develops a passion for fishing, snorkeling and living on the ocean, she is definitely a mermaid. Presently living in the Virgin Island, for the last 2 years she worked as a freelance chef for day and term charters, for retreats and Airbnb guest. She loved her experiences so much that this year, she decided to chef fulltime for term charters. She is super excited to work on Devine Sailing as a chef first mate. Being a charter chef satisfies her
immensely. She is ready to prepare her creative, delicious healthy meals for everyone to enjoy during their unforgettable vacations on the ocean.
Let the memorable adventures begin in the beautiful Caribbean islands!


Captain Ray Devine

Captain Ray is a retired Firefighter/Paramedic, and during my career, was promoted to EMS Supervisor with the St. Louis West County fire protection district. To try and impress with my Captain abilities, I have been sailing boats since the age of 4 in my bathtub as a child, racing around the bubbles, and other toys in the tub. I moved up to larger boats, sailing the BVI´s, back in the 90´s, renting boats with the family. Then captaining and crewing boats for the last 30 years, using chartering boats from the Moorings, Voyage, TMM, Dream Yacht, and Seabattical. I have done boat deliveries, from as far away as Cape Town, SA, to Bermuda, to St. Martin, to and from St. Thomas, Grenada, Florida, Louisiana and sailing school in Australia. I was also 1st Mate and Engineer on several large 85´ to 125´ Motor Yachts with Captain Winston Hovey, and Captain Cynthia Hovey in Florida, Tortola, St. Thomas, St. Martin, and St. Bart´s, working with Owners and guests on their boats. They even wrote a book ´ There´s a Yacht more to life´ in which I have the privilege of being in it.

Captain Ray is a PADI certified Dive Master. I hold a USCG Merchant Marine 100 Ton license, with the STCW certificate, along with a RYA Captains license from the Flying Fish School in Australia. I am also proud to have served in the U.S. Army for 6 years as a Medical Corpsman with a Honorable Discharge. I love to do term charters. making friends along the way, enjoying the beauty of the islands, beaches, the sunsets, and having fun in the Islands, and most important, the unique experience with my guests.

Robbie Dove group Island Time

Repeat guests, from 10 years ago, still having a wonderful time. with Chef Anjali, Capt. Ray, Robbie, Stormy, Erich, Delise, Susy, Bob, Melinda, and Steve.

Barna & Wyman Charter

Awesome charter group ! Very dedicated to having fun in the sun. Scuba divers, night divers, snorkelers, hikers, sailboat racers, (we won) karaoke singers, guitar players, paddle boarders, subwing riders, catch phrase players, contract rummy players and music dancers ! You name it they were all about it. Chef Sylvie knocked it out of the park with her cooking. Everything was perfect, even watching the rocket launce from Cape Canaveral !!!

Murry Group Perryville charter

Repeat guest, with a thirst for Mich Ultra, their new group name is the 14 case crew. They enjoyed the snorkeling, scuba, karaoke, paddle boarding, Willy T, G swing, the Bathes, Anagada lobster, singing to the guitar, Sylvie´s cooking, and Diane´s mermaid outfit ! What a wonderful time with a wonderful group !

Mianecki Charter

Thank you Personal Paradise Charters for a wonderful group of guests. The Washington State group, with all their humor, karaoke singers, scuba divers, Foxy dancers, made friends forever !!!!

December 5, 2023 USVI & BVI

Just wanted to send a thank you and are appreciation of how our trip went. It was definitely a bucket list filled and checked off item but hopefully get to do it again as it was truly a joy to sail with you and Sylvie. You definitely made us feel like part of the Devine family and we really appreciate that. I´ll let you know around the first of the year if we can make the August trip but I would like to say on a preliminary basis we definitely want to do it because we always go somewhere in the Caribbean for anniversary. I will try to get that in the works for you as well and put Tripadvisor too and CC it to you for the website. thanks again! David and Amanda

Unbelievable trip

We would absolutely do this trip again on Devine Sailing. Meals were outstanding, the crew magnificent, the fun and laughs were so much appreciated....we needed this ! Chef Reis goes out of her way to make the best food, with lots of love. Capt. Ray shares so much information about the area, you can tell he knows what he is doing. BTW, the scuba diving was awesome. Thanks, again, coming back soon !

Devine Sailing,

Not sure where we start. Of all catamarans trips we have done, this is by far te best one. You both fit in so well in our group,like family. I am already sad that in 24 hours we will be leaving the boat. Ray Devine is extremely lucky to have 2 incredible people who are so passionate & caring. We will be looking to book again & will defintiely be talking about a secondhome in Puerto Rico. I am not saying good bye but ´sea´ you again.

What a wonderful time, with wonderful friends...time passes much to fast, I wish we could have done this sooner ! The Best Crew Capt. Ray, and Chef Sylvie made the best food ever ! As you said ´ let´s have fun in the sun! ´

March 2022

One of the best trips ever. We had a group of 8 and with most of us being boaters, some of us were concerned about having enough room for all of us on a 50’ boat. That was not an issue at all. The boat is very wide and spacious. The cabins have plenty of room & each has its own bathroom. The crew were amazing and have the local knowledge of the best places to see and to anchor. The food was great, before the trip we let them know our basic preferences & each night we were pleasantly surprised with what the chef created for us. They just took care of everything so our only job was to relax. We will definitely be back again.

Amazing trip...

We were fortunate to take this amazing trip. You couldn’t ask for two better people. We saw so many beautiful places. It was fun, relaxing and amazing!
Would definitely recommend anyone take this trip of a lifetime!!

Trip of a lifetime

This is absolutely the trip of a LIFETIME! We´ve sailed MANY times with Devine Sailing and you won´t find a better experience on the beautiful waters of the virgin islands

DEVINE!

Devine Sailing is just that....DEVINE!!! Best vacation ever! You will be spoiled by scrumptious meals, wonderful crew and captain, and the greatest sailing adventure of a lifetime!! The Virgin Islands are gorgeous! We can’t wait to do it again soon!!

Highly recommended

One of the most amazing vacations I´ve ever experienced. Highly recommend taking a 7 day trip on Devine Sailing

Vacation of a lifetime...

Vacation of a lifetime. We highly recommend to everyone! The crew is one of the best. So enjoyable

Amazing vacation...

This trip was the most amazing vacation I´ve taken. I´ve been 3 times with Devine sailing and you really cannot beat the pricing for the awesome experience. If you want to have an island getaway without all the people, this is it. Staying on the boat for a week is just what my soul needs each time to literally let it all go. I highly recommend Devine sailing, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, St. John, and St. Thomas, the amazing beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving, and the quaint little bars, shops, and restaurants you get to visit while aboard the Devine´s boat. The trip really was Devine each time!
