G3 Crew Profile
Chef / First Mate
Captain Casey Laaro
As a prior captain of historic sailing vessels, Casey brings a wealth of maritime history and a unique perspective to your cruising experience. Casey’s passion for boating began as a young student participating in a sail training program aboard the 137ft sailing vessel Denis Sullivan of his hometown, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing from that exposure, Casey has since enjoyed 11 years of magnificent sailing, traversing the East and West coasts of the U.S., as well as the Great Lakes, and Caribbean.
Throughout his adventures, Casey has cultivated a love of sharing exceptional sailing adventures with his guests. Casey strives to give each guest an island experience catered to their personal style. Whether you like a tropical adventure, with an active exploration of the islands and their culture, or a more relaxed and isolated beach retreat, Casey is here to guide you to the best destinations. He enjoys a broad appreciation for various cultures, experiences, and cuisines, and is excited to share such pleasures with you.
Whether he is firing off a 50 pound cannon during a historic reenactment, or a flame grilled captain’s burger for your charter, Casey is sure to make a booming impact on your trip! With his 100 ton USCG license, STCW certificate, and witty humor, Casey is ready to show your company all the relaxation and excitement of a sailing vacation in the beautiful Virgin Islands.
He and his wife, Angela look forward to providing your group with a sailing experience to touch your soul, just as the sea has touched theirs.
Chef Angela Laaro
Angela started her life´s journey on the Chesapeake Bay, crabbing and oystering with her grandfather. She then found true love in the sea and her partner, Casey, through a career sailing tall ships. With a familial background in agriculture, and a passion for experiencing travel through food, Angela enjoys incorporating local fresh produce and style into her creations. She makes extra effort to source from local farmers, and appreciates the variety of bright colors and flavors brought forth by the freshest ingredients.
Her culinary journey started at a young age learning familial cooking secrets from her mother. Throughout her many adventures, Angela has focused on the vast variety of flavors found in foods around the globe. Her menu is inspired by her most vibrant culinary experiences while traveling. Angela strives to cultivate bright and complex flavor profiles utilizing local and global culinary expressions to instill fantastic flavors into your vacation.
Angela and Casey met each other seven years ago aboard the 122ft sailing vessel Lynx and have become an un-sinkable team since. They are both USCG certified Captains with sailing endorsements. As such, they support each other with the responsibilities of both sailing and cooking up magnificent fare on the vessel. While Angela takes the helm of the galley most often, she is not afraid to take the helm of the boat for an adventurous spin or guide your party through a magnificent snorkeling or hiking excursion.
This dynamic couple greatly enjoys sharing their fantastic sea stories, and looks forward to inviting you aboard to cultivate memories of your own!

Dear Angela & Casey,
Wwowowowowowow, you made our trip so enjoyable and relaxing...being waited on is something one needs to get used to! It´ll never happen for this crew. Pitching in is our thing. Sailing the long stretch to Anegada, snorkeling through the caves, drinking yummy concoctions and eating 3 meals a day...who does this? We do! Thank you so much for everything. Cheers to your next chapter!

Casey and Angela, we had a relaxing, and activity filled vacation! You both always focused on our happiness throughout the trip and knew that our crew needed to stay active and loved adventures. Casey´s piloting of the dinghy with the raft was truly a sight to the had and the experience that hit on such a great level of fun, laughing, and thrilling. Angela´s meal planning, presentation and taste were outstanding. It was fine dining at every meal and we were excited for her next creation. You are a great team and couple and we wish you tow an amazing journey in life filled with adventures, kids, and blessings.
Thank you for making this trip the best birthday celebration yet! It´s been an incredible few days out in the Caribbean and it was all thanks to the two of you. We have a big group but you made each of us feel welcomed. We really appreciate your attentiveness, patience, and thoughtfulness to each of our needs. The food, drinks, and action packed days were awesome! Also sorry for the horrid handwriting – still recovering from holding onto dear life out on the tube. Thank you again – you are truly the best!!!

Casey and Angela, thank you for the wonderful time we had with out on Pelican. We couldn´t ask for a better crew. Angela, the best chef ever: Thanks for all the details, dedication and love you put in each plate. We almost lost you in the sacachucha but like always, you had it all under control. Casey, the revenge is still pending so wait for us. It was a pleasure to have such a nice and funny captain. See you in Greece or Chile.
Dear Angela and Casey, this was our first time having vacation sailing and were afraid, but after 5 days of incredible beaches, views, sunny days you made the difference between a good experience and the best vacation we have ever got. We feel in our home very well cared for, with a great view that put me in love in everything you do. We always felt safe too. Remember you will be invited to the greek island so we´ll meet you there and we´ll be welcome in Chile.
To the best of crew of all, thanks so much for making this adventure the best vacation without you it would be definitely boring. Thanks for every plate and all the laughs. The “sacachuca” and the rummikub revenge is pending!
Casey and Angela, this vacation was fantastic from planning through de-boarding. First, we cannot thank the 2 of you enough for you hard work and dedication of making the Pelican and the experiences on the Pelican a vacation to remember. Well planned and well executed with a whole lot of fun to share with us guests.
For those considering a sail on the Pelican – do it! You will not regret it. The boat, the food, and the experiences are far beyond and better than anyone could hope for. And Captains Casey and Angela are knowledgable outgoing, kind, and most of all fun!
After 30 years of sailing The Virgin Islands this was our best experience! Angela and Casey were our best crew ever! They were always helpful, and ready to make our trip memorable! The meals were amazing! We will always remember our time on the Pelican because of the wonderful crew!
Thank you Casey & Angela for making our trip into an unforgettable memory. You guys are hands down our favorite crew and Venice will probably cry when we go. You have treated my whole family with such patience and kindness, really means a lot. Angela please forward your recipes! Capt. Casey have a very happy Birthday! Wishing you both a happy, healthy, and successful New Year! Thanks for being the best!
This was Max and I´s first trip to the USVI´s sailing! It was so special to be able to share this experience with the entire family. We had so many laughs, adventures, and new experiences! The memories we have made this trip will last a lifetime, not to mention the AMAZING crew. Casey & Angela, who took amazing care of us & we will never forget the trip they helped create for us! The best way to start the new year!
Snorkeling sailing, dinghy rides, the deck (wrestling), molten chocolate cake, lamb, fun, family, friendly, kind, calm, capable, professional...What an amazing week. It feels like this flown by. Such a special time celebrating birthdays and spending special time together with the whole Covec family. Casey, Angela, and Pelican you made it all so amazing and smooth. You made us feel so welcome cared for, and just fond of such an amazing place. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Thank you for making our week interesting tasty, and safe. We tremendously enjoyed sailing and daily menu. Casey and Angela, you guys rock!
Terrific week with captain Casey and first mate Angela, all good! We would love to travel with them again in the future!
We will remember your kindness, sense of fear, calm capability and fantastic meals and cocktails for many years to come! You two are lovely, all the best, and you are welcome at our homes as you well cared for us on Pelican.
Casey and Angela have made this experience unforgettable! The food, the knowledge, and the kind disposition made this trip a great springboard for future trips with our young children. They will always reflect on this the rest of their lives and so will us adults. Without hesitation, we would choose them to skipper us around the VI! Angelas ability both on deck and in the kitchen was so exceptional! Caseys calm demeanor, splendid with humor and constant attention to everything around him was amazing! Much love and respect!
