Jan´s FeLion Crew Profile
MEET YOUR CAPTAIN
CAPTAIN KIRK ROBINSON
Kirk has always been a very active person. His love of the water began in his early 20´s but it all started on land for Kirk as a professional soccer player where he spent his younger years representing his country Antigua in America, England and South America. A keen fisherman, you´ll notice when sailing with Kirk, he´ll be on the lookout for a fresh dinner from the sea!
Kirk started his sailing career as an Engineer with Sunsail working in Antigua and the BVI. He is Yachtmaster Certified and has been a professional charter captain in the Caribbean for the past 12 years. He knows the intricate islands of the Caribbean with great depth and nuance. Most recently he was captain of the successful charter yacht Amazing. He´s clearly a well-liked captain, with 90% repeat guests or special requests by referral. Kirk is a very kid-friendly captain, welcoming families and friends to have a great time on Jan´s FeLion.
CHEF LOIC DOAN JAUSORO
Loic Doan grew up in the Canary Islands, surrounded by the sea and everything that it entails. His father was a sailor so he naturally developed a love for watersports, spearfishing, diving and surfing. It was when he had the opportunity to travel the world in his youth that he began to develop his sensibility for the culinary arts. Exploring places like Indonesia, Vietnam, Norway, Thailand, Sweden, Austria, France- these cultures all have left a mark on his senses and inform his versatile culinary abilities.
Loic´s passion for cooking was born thanks to his grandmothers. Since he was a child he spent time in their kitchens as well as his aunt´s restaurant, observing and falling in love with the magic that was being created there. Loic decided to pursue a degree with the top culinary school in Spain. He studied gastronomy and culinary arts in the heart of Spanish gastronomy, Basque Country. There he spent 4 years learning a tremendous amount alongside colleagues from all over the world and with the guidance of internationally recognized chefs. Loic started cooking in small restaurants and villas and soon he was able to work in places with greater recognition, among which include an Italian Michelin star restaurant, Nub Restaurant, and the highly regarded Nordic restaurant with Japanese influence, called Frantzén, which has three Michelin Stars.
After these years of applying his knowledge, Loic defines his cuisine as a blend of international style, with Spanish and Italian cuisine standing out the most. He loves to challenge himself daily by playing with different styles - blending the old with the new in his recipe creation, a nod to where he first fell in love with cooking. Ultimately it´s the light, fresh, local ingredients that inform his menu design. You can look forward to experiencing a beautifully presented, delicious and versatile culinary experience onboard with Loic Doan.
Katherine was born with an adventurous spirit. Growing up in North Carolina with six siblings she spent most of her time on the water or in the
mountains. Kat shared her passion for thrill with the children she nannied for many years. Her Interior Design Degree can be seen in her ability to make any space warm and inviting.
After college she moved to the snowy mountains of Vail, CO, where she restored antique furniture and soaked in all the outdoors had to offer. She enjoyed hiking, camping, climbing, fishing, rafting, and of course shredding on her snowboard. Later, she volunteered her time across the U.S., working on multiple organic farms. She also spent her summers growing produce for local restaurants. One thing is for certain, no matter where Kat goes, her southern charm and thirst for adventure are always with her. She makes friends wherever she is and is a stranger to no one
In the past 5 years she has built her yacht portfolio in the USVI and BVI, including a sailing scuba dive liveaboard, where her love for underwater grew.
Kat will be seen helping the Captain with deckhand work, assisting the Chef with a spectacular meal, or keeping the boat clean and tidy for all to enjoy. Kat is always up for any water activity. She enjoys paddle boarding, diving, wakeboarding and swimming with sea creatures.
Your sailing experience is guaranteed to be enhanced with the contagious laughter and fun Kat brings to charter. She has worked in the service industry and understands the importance of comfort, fun, relaxation, and balance. She can mix the perfect cocktail of mermaid water or if you´re lucky she will have some samples of her homemade Kombucha! Her down to earth personality will make it hard to leave, but you will cherish the memories she helps create.

Jan´s FeLion Guest Reviews
Thank yo so much for all that you did to make this truly the most amazing adventure! The islsands, the impeccable boat, the food and the drink would have made this the trip of a lifetime, but the crew pit it over the top! Thanks again captain Kirk, Kat (soon to be captain Kat...good luck) and Loic! We will never forget he BVI or this amazing crew.
~Nathanial and Charlie
So many special memories were made on this trip that will last a life time. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of us these last seven days. We hope to be back to the BVI again. Until such time, all the best wishes to you and your friends andfamily.

A Dream Journey!
The idea for this adventure started in Zanzibar, Tanzania. While on Safari (trip of a life time) a dinner associate informed my wife and I about chartering a catermaran named Jan´sFeLionq. She said it would be a ´trip of a life time´ Who knew, you could take two trips of a life time in one life. Lol!
Our group of six boarded Jan´s FeLion in Village Cay Tortola, from the moment we entered Captain Kirk, Kat, and Loic made us feel right at home. A quick change into appropriate BVI wear followed by introductory drinks and snacks, and we could feel the stress disapate and the feeling of warm sun and relaxation taking over.
Captain Kirk quickly established himself as a true leader. A keen observer, he learned our group and catered the charter to our liking. His daily debriefings and suggestions were always on point. He kept us safe, on time, and full of adventure.
Captain Kirk arranged a prime table location to view the Super Bowl at Bitters Ends. In addition, he introduced us to Sweet ´Ice´ Willie who then gave us an Island land tour of Virgin Gorda, introduced us to the tasty and scrumptious food of Mad Dog, and drove us to the awesome Baths (a must see for anyone coming to the BVI).
Captain, most of all, we admired the pride you had in caring for Jan´s FeLion as well as our well-being!
Oh I must mention, a Big Ups for the ab roller session! Gotta stay fit while on Jan´s FeLion!
Each day bettered the next and that was primarily because while Captain was navigating, Kat took care of our every need while aboard Jan´s FeLion.
Kat kept our cups full of tasty drinks, kept our quarters immaculate, help decorate and organize a fabulous Valentine´s Day celebration on the boat. She was always 2 steps ahead whether presenting a dry towel after a long beach day, helping to hang and dry your bathing suits, providing snorkeling gear, presenting a fresh cup of coffee upon your awakening, or whatever else was needed Kat was always there with great conversation and a genuine smile to spoil us daily.
Kat we have nothing but ❤️ for you. Chase those dreams!
My man Loic. They say God gives everyone a talent. This young man was blessed to cook. The meals were off the chain ( that means great, awesome, or any other adjective meaning unbelievable) Each breakfast, lunch, and dinner became better and better.
Loic prepared the meals with such grace and tenacity. The love he poured into them came out in the amazing aromas and taste of each dish. I will never forget how when someone mentioned a item they liked ( Wendel´s olives), they magically appeared in the next meal.
Loic we all will struggle to find food as delicious as yours back home. Much appreciation for the time and dedication that you give to your craft.
In summary, from Coopers Island to Virgin Gorda to Neckar Island to Jost Van Dyke to Norman Island, Captain Kirk, Kit, and Loic ensured that all six of us were made to feel special.
And a special thanks to Heather for all the behind the seens efforts. She helped organize the Neckar Island tour with Gumption tours. I will not spoil all the details of this tour, but if you are in the BVI make sure you take the Neckar Island tour and meet the man they call Gumption.
Jan´s FeLion, Much Respect!
William and Gunjan
We cannot imagine a better vacation than our time on Jan´s FeLion with Captain Kirk, Kat and Loic. The boat was a great fit for us. The crew keeps it in meticulous shape. Our cabins were awesome and Kat kept them in tip-top shape. We mainly lived outdoors, dined outdoors, sunned, made the crossing on the bridge. It was spectacular!
We all love to cook and initially were disappointed that we wouldn´t be in the galley. That disappointment passed after Loic prepared our first meal. Chartering with a chef is seamless. The preference materials that you complete are your only responsibility. You don´t have to plan meals, provision, worry about proper storage, forgetting something -- no worries, the crew handles everything. Loic is a skilled chef and simply a good guy with an easy nature. Kat and Loic made every meal a treat. Kat is so service-hearted and gracious. She was always at the ready with coffee, cocktails, water toys. She learned our preferences and anticipated our needs. What a great smile and laugh. Captain Kirk is an ace. He has confidence and obvious skill. One is instantly at ease knowing that he will be running the show and handling all the decisions on the crossings, the moorings, anchoring, dinghy trips, fresh water and all. He communicated clearly regarding our itinerary, careful to consider our desires and kept us on a wonderful schedule. He also shared a couple of his favorite hikes with us. We loved being on shore and learning from him.
As in life, it is about relationships. The best part of our trip -- not the stellar boat and accommodations, not the delicious food and beverages, not the carefree adventure, not the glorious Caribbean islands with picturesque mountains, flora and fauna and crystal-clear turquoise and deep blue waters, not the adorable island stops and watering holes. Hands down, it was the crew! We loved the blessing of getting to know them a little and sharing the week with them.
After a couple of tough years of healthcare challenges, this charter was balm to our souls. We´d love to do it again. And again. And again!
Thanks to you for guiding us through all the planning and preparation. Everything exceeded our expectations!
Jan and Family
Dear Loic, Kat and CK (AKA Captain Kirk/Captain Sweet Tooth)
Thjank you for the trip of a lifetime! It exxceeded all our expectations. We are so grateful the Dragonfly got struck by lightening. Everything happens for a reason. We spent the last year planning this adventure and each of you helped make it so special. Kat´s infectious smile and incredible laugh brightens every morning. Loic created culinary master pieces for each and every meal. CK´s daily brief was on point, his skill and experience made us all feel so comfortable + safe. Every location + stop was a hit. Here are a few words to describe our trip:
*Real wave * Barracuda *Kat´s Painkillers *Casa Blanca * The Hike *Necker Tour * Sailor Boy Baron *It´s waterproof *Fungi *Gumption *Nauti but Nice * White Night/Willy T *Oreos * Broken Foil *Full Moon party...

BVI January 2022 BEST vacation
Comments from Broker regading Clients aboard -
They said this was the BEST vacation they have EVER had! Captain Kirk was so nice and super professional. Bill is a very experienced sailor and was impressed with Kirk and his knowledge. They were impressed by his mannerisms, supremely professional and knowledgeable. He also helped out in the galley all the time. It was a team effort and they all seem to have gotten along well. They just love Captain Kirk!
NIA-OMG! Sooo impressed with her cooking skills and the fact she is self-taught. Amazing!!! Every single meal was AMAZING! They went to stay at Little Dix after the charter and missed her food the most. Mr. & Mrs. are foodies and were blown away with the talent Nia has. They were surprised at the quality of food as well. The breads and cheeses were so impressive too! Couldn’t believe she found such excellent quality cheese on the islands. They can’t say enough of Nia and her cooking abilities. She should have her own cooking show or write a cook book… THAT GOOD!
Kat was AMAZING as well. They absolutely LOVED her too! She was always helpful with anything and everything. She was the sweetest and they loved having her on board and commented of how well this trio got along and worked very well together. Her cocktails were PERFECT! Not too strong, and not to weak, just right! Very creative and they looked forward to her cocktail of the day. She was truly AMAZING! Enough to invite her to their home anytime she is in their neck of the woods!
The toys were amazing. They LOVED the sea scooter. They had the most fun on this. And, they loved the boat too! So impressed with her as well. Very spacious and great sitting areas. She was beautiful and they loved every minute on her!

“What an amazing week…we gathered from all over…Colorado, Wilmington, NC Toronto, Grand Is/ and NY + Ohio. We had no idea what an amazing week we would experience….The BVI’s are special but the crew took the trip to a whole other level .. you are so good at what you do… with food better than any restaurant on the island and a positive and cheery attitude that welcomes all, Captain Kirk made us all feel so safe & you knew he always has your back, the quiet steady presence of a true professional..And Kat, the glue that kept us all together, enjoying the trip + taking care of our every need. We will have life long memories thanks to you three…Back to the real world but remembering our amazing week in the BVIs.
Thank you for an awesome week,
The Stones ( + Krissy too!)”

“Kat, Nia, and Captain Kirk …how will we survive without you? Its only been one week, but you have raised the bar in all ways. This trip has exceeded all expectations. The boat is meticulously maintained, the food has blown us away every day and night, and the drinks and hospitality has warmed our hearts. You are going to have to kick us off because we are not leaving!

“Dear Captain Kirk, Kat + Nia,
What an amazing vacation!!! I don’t even know where to begin to thank you! We enjoyed ourselves and had so much fun with you! The tubing, beach outings, and just spending time relaxing on the boat have all been restorative to our souls and a well needed rest.
Then there is the food. Every meal was incredibly delicious and we are very grateful to the care and effort put into making meals and service.
We were on the boat during some anxiety- and the crew provided the respite that we needed to focus on what’s important, our family and healthy and safety. We are grateful to you all for providing a vacation that we will never forget. We look forward to seeing you all again after this corona madness is over.
With love and gratitude!

“The McKennon Family is so appreciative for the “best ever week onboard Jan’s FeLion. From the moment we boarded we were amazed at what a beautiful home we had. Captain Kirk took amazing care of us and provided the exact perfect spot and activity for each day. Chef Nia prepared photo ready and delicious dishes at each meal. Susanna kept our cocktails full and our hearts warmed as she cared to our every want and need. Best week full of family memories!”
With love, The McKennons
“What a week it has been! Our family made many memories that will last a lifetime! Captain Kirk and Nia are hard-working, caring and gracious people who made the trip more fabulous than we could have imagined. They took care of every detail- didn’t miss anything! From the food and the cocktails to our daily adventures- everything was perfect. WE WILL BE BACK! Compliments too on the beautiful boat. It is kept up pristine and definitely feels like home. Thanks for caring for us this week- we were in great hands! Again thank you, thank you Capt. Kirk and Nia- God Bless you!”

“ A fabulous vacation! Every detail was perfect...the boat, the food, the crew, the friends and the weather.
Captain Kirk arranged perfect days that were the greatest balance of relaxation and adventure. We enjoyed riding scooters, bar hopping and indulging in local cuisine and dancing. Nia spoiled us with daily culinary treats and Nicole arranged a beautiful table and created lovely cocktails. We just can’t say enough about how much we loved this trip! It far-exceeded our expectations. Thank you for a fabulous week!
Jan´s FeLion´s first guests, in January, 2018, aboard a brand new yacht said:
Jan’s FeLion, what can I say other than it was 63’ feet of perfection!!!! My family and I had the privilege of being the first charter on this brand new beauty. It had all the accommodations you would imagine and more. I have known the captain, Kirk, from previous sailing trips in the BVI with my brothers and father. Everyone in the group always wants to boat with captain Kirk, this trip was no exception. Our group included my siblings, their spouses and my parents, 12 people in total, so we decided to charter two boats. Jan’s Felion and A3 both exceeded our expectations. My wife and I were on Jan’s Felion with captain Kirk and his first mate Randy. The two crews worked non-stop to make sure we were all having a good time. In addition to the beautiful sites, delicious food and fun activities, Captain Kirk, and Randy truly are what made it special. I have one perfect quote that I did not write, but noticed written at Potters by the Sea on Anegada. We were all finishing up eating, having a few drinks and dancing. I stopped to look at the wall and it said “There is no place like home, but, this is better”. It truly was perfect. Thanks to Jan’s Felion crew for what really was one of the best weeks of our lives!
Please know that the BVI is open for business and the people as always were friendly, welcoming and strong. They want to see you there.
Thanks all who had a hand in this,
(Steve and Jenny Zawacki)

The boat was very comfortable inside & out, and inimmaculate condition...spotless, and crew worked to keep it that way throughoutour visit. It was a pleasure cruising with Kirk & Heather…they were so easyto get along with, great & positive attitude. They catered to our everyneed and refused to let us lift a finger.
