We met over 20 years ago in eastern England while skating. When Dawn was not busy working in restaurants, she was the top skating coach for the UK. David was working as a systems engineer and electrician, as well as a chef at weekends. We spent our first few years together restoring our cottage which was built in 1585. Having sailed in many different areas we went to the BVIs and fell in love with the islands.
It was Dawns idea to leave home and go off to sea; an idea that David greatly relished! We decided that David would update his license at the top sailing academy in the world, whilst Dawn had one to one lessons with one of the regions top cookery teachers.
We have been the longest constantly serving and busiest captain and chef for the largest crewed charter company in the world, working on various yachts always in the BVI. Our original idea was to work in this career for ten years. Having spent 12 years and almost 300 charters in the BVIs we are still saying we want to spend another ten years in the job we love!

David:
My family has been sailing for longer than I can remember. I trained in hotel management for 2 years. but somehow ended up becoming a electrician which I loved. I am a MCA/RYA commercially endorsed Yachtmaster 200 ton. I love to drive my 1963 MGB. roadster called The Baby whenever I can. I also enjoy old buildings, cooking, if Dawn lets me anywhere near the galley, photography, and I am attempting to learn the Didgeridoo with limited success!!

Dawn:
I was brought up travelling around Europe and North Africa with my parents. When they finally settled down back home in England I found my love of skating. Skating once again took me travelling! Having settled down with David in our Cottage I thought my traveling days were over. Then the BVIs and sailing found me and off to new adventures we went. I have worked in restaurants for many years and when I have time off, I love to do cookery courses for fun!

We are married and are both non smokers..

New Years 2015/16

I think everyday I said This is the prettiest beach/bay I have ever seen What a wonderful trip, I will remember it for the rest of my life. The food was great, the views were great and David and Dawn were even better. Thanks for such a wonderful trip.

What a fantastic week! You made every day a unique experience; New stories, new food, new adventures, new islands-new-new-new. Your obvious pride in sailing well, being British and sharing your office made our trip a success. Thank you and best of luck

David and Dawn
Thank you so much for hosting a Brilliant, perfect vacation. Everything was wonderful. Davids attention to Bens incessant questions, the stories, napkin folding lessons, proper toasting etiquette and amazing cocktails will never be forgotten. Dawns amazing cooking, always cheerful disposition, great music selection, red rubber gloves and Christmas dcor made everything so much more special! We cant wait to see you again.
Kristian

One for the Bucket List

Old Guys have bucket lists. One of mine was a sail in the Caribbean. I had no idea what that wish really meant. Sailing on the Fuerte 3 with Dawn and David was a wish come true. Hospitality, food, comfort, island hopping, humor, and the best drinks in the islands. A home away from home when we were having below zero temperatures in Cleveland.
