Years Chartering2

Pieter acquired BSc degree and a teaching diploma at the University of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. After 12 years in Education as a Science and Mathematics teacher in Namibia and South Africa he started his own business.

He has always been around boats and watersports for most of his life but started sailing and racing keelboats at Royal Cape Yacht Club in the late nineties. He has since owned 5 monohulls and two catamarans and has sailed long passages on both types. Theresa and Pieter sailed on various boats accumulating thousands of miles along the notorious eastern coast of South Africa and of course windy Cape Town.

In 2017 they decided to sell everything and go sailing. They left Cape Town on their 44ft monohull and crossed the Atlantic from Cape Town to Grenad. They spent two seasons sailing the Caribbean visiting Trinidad, Grenada, Grenadines, St Lucia, Martinique, Antigua, BVI to name a few.
Pieter has a Yachtmaster Offshore and is also an PADI advanced open water scuba diver.

Chef/First Mate Theresa Jacobs was born in the Northern Cape (South Africa), Theresa fell in love with sailboats and the sea from an early age.

After studying IT, she worked in Corporate as an Executive Personal Assistant and later Middle Management for 21 years. Not forgetting her lifelong dream to travel around the world, she took a sabbatical and leapt at the chance to work on the Last World Tour for the QEII Cruise Ship. Having learned to sail on Dinghy´s and Hobie Cats, it seemed the perfect way to travel.

Upon returning and getting back into corporate life, she quickly realized saltwater was running through her veins and she had to return to the sea.
Shortly after, she met Pieter and started racing with him at Royal Cape Yacht club. They found that their common interest aligned: Travel and boats.

Captain Pieter and chef Theresa look forward to welcoming you onboard Island R&R!

**Captain Pieter and chef Theresa are both fully vaccinated**

Island R&R Guest Reviews

The Crew Exceeded Our Expectations!

This has truly been an amazing trip.
The boat and the crew definitely exceeded our expectations.

The past 4 days gave us some much needed ´chill time´
The food was amazing and Captain Toothless took us to all the best spots!

Jeff and I will never forget the Windmill Bar, the ruins at Waterlemon Cay and of course, the infamous trivia at Dinghy´s Beach Bar. Not sure I´ve ever laughed so hard.

Thank you for making this trip a vacation we will never forget. We truly appreciate the expert boat captain, 5 star meals and the overall attentive service.

Was Fabulous!

We had a fantastic time on our honeymoon. many thanks to thompson and Shayna for their hospitality. Our adventure on the island started out a little crazy but turned out to be fabulous on Island R&R.

The meals were amazing.

Salt Pond and Reef Bay are the best.

We hope to see you guys again one day.

The Best Trip Of Our Lives

This is our last day of a trip that was two years in the making.

The anticipation for the trip was not matched by the beauty of the sea. The experience provided by Thomson and Shayna was one that our family will always remember.

Snorkeling, tubing, great meals and new friends were just a few memories that will last a lifetime.

Thanks to Thomson and Shayna this trip was one of the best of our lives and definitely worth the wait!

The BEST Vacation We Have Taken.

We have been planning this trip since summer of 2019. Cap´n ´Toothless´ Thomas and first mate Shayna were so amazing. Had things gone as planned we would´ve missed the wonderful blessing these two have been.

Beautiful islands, spectacular weather, great conversation, best crew - Don´t know what could´ve been better!

There are trips and there are vacations. Thanks for making this truly one of the BEST vacations we have taken.

# Best Vacation Ever!

There is a greater purpose and plan for our lives. We are blessed that the plan included having our lives intersect with Captain Thomson and Shayna. We anticipated an amazing vacation, which we had. What we were not expecting was the amazing crew and new friendships that we found on the Island R&R. Thomson´s knowledge and wit mixed with Shayna´s gracious hospitality was an added blessing. Thank you for the fun, the memories and helping to make this our best vacation yet.

Blessed with the BEST!

After having to reschedule due to Covid, death of family, a ´rogue´ captain, we finally landed on a date for our island cruise and were blessed with the BEST! Captain thomson and Shayna were hands down the most wonderful team we could have drawn if we were picking. You two made a nice island cruise a GREAT island vacation. Thanks for everything and may you be blessed.

We´re Meant To Be With This Crew

We were scheduled to take this trip in April 2020 - Covid hit!

We were beyond frustrated. We are so happy things worked out because we were meant to be with this crew and feel so thankful.

We hit the jackpot with our beaches and sailing around the islands. Thank you for the amazing food, knowledge about the area and making us feel so welcome. We are already planning our next trip back!

Awesome Trip!

Awesome trip! Thanks for being so nice and giving attention to Nicole and Matt. I am sure they will never forget this vacation. We wish you all the best.

An Epic Week on the Water!

What an amazing way to bring in 2021! We had an incredible week celebrating #Oh Glenn and the end of 2020. Watersports were a hit and we can´t thank Thomson enough for his endless energy tugging us around on all of the gear! Shayna and Thomson were perfect hosts and we are so grateful to have shared this memorable week with them. Thanks for accommodating our endless appetites - for food and fun!
Thank you both for an epic week on the water!

Shayna & Thomson Made It All the More Memorable

This vacation was already incredible, but Shayna and Thomson made it all the more memorable. Every meal was absolutely delicious and eating each meal as a crew and sharing stories and conversations was one of my favorit parts of this trip. Not to mention the 7 rainbows that we saw this week!
Spending Christmas with Shayna and Thomson on the Island R&R has 100% been one of my all-time favorite vacations and I couldn´t think of any better way to spend the last bit of 2020. Shayna´s kindness and expert hospitality and Thomson´s knowledge of ocean life and contagious enthusiasm made it hard not to enjoy ourselves to the absolute fullest. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy the USVI with you on the Island R&R! I´ve already started saving up to come back!

Fantastic week on R&R

One of the best trips we have taken. The experience was great with all the places we saw. Our experience with Shayna and Thomson is unforgettable. I learned so much from them and they were so much fun to talk to!

Fantastic week at sea! Only wish we didnt let the big one win the reel battle! Maho Bay was my favorite stop - Turtles!

Fantastic week on the R&R with Shayna and Thomson! Loved our time in Maho and especially at Lime Out. Enjoyed the meals Shayna prepared for us - from breakfast taco´s to Thomson sharing his family´s seafood paella with us! What a great crew to celebrate Christmas with!
