MEET YOUR CREW: Connor Burns and Ada Cruz
Growing up beside the breathtaking shores of Cape Town, South Africa, the calm certainty of the ocean’s rhythm is ingrained in Connor’s soul. His upbringing was a mix of saltwater, sand and awesome adventures.
An opportunity of a Trans-Atlantic crossing ignited his passion for sailing. “Nothing beats the thrill of catching the wind and guiding a vessel through the water with no one in sight”. Connor was hooked! His sailing has taken him from Cape Town, to Panama, to the Mediterranean, and more recently to the Caribbean where he has run term charters within the BVI.

Connor embraces his role as a charter captain and host, introducing his charter guests to the world of sailing by curating unforgettable experiences in the beautiful setting of the Virgin Islands.

Adamaris (Ada) Cruz, a true Puerto Rican at heart. Born and raised in the beautiful town of Trujillo Alto, she has a genuine passion for all things water related, whether it’s swimming, diving, or simply enjoying the soothing sound of waves on the shore. When it comes to food, Ada is an absolute connoisseur - savoring the traditional flavors of Puerto Rican cuisine and exploring culinary delights from around the world. Ada not only appreciates good food, but she also has a true passion for cooking. Experimenting with new recipes and placing her own twist on traditional dishes, she loves the creative process of preparing delicious meals that bring people together. She has recently completed a two-week culinary course at Stir Crazy, Super Yacht Training Academy in Cape Town, South Africa.

Together, Connor and Ada create amazing charters for their guests that forge connections, take pleasure in culinary delights and create life lasting memories!

Libra 50 Guest Reviews

So Many Memories Made

We had the most wonderful time on Libra, so many memories made. Turtles, fish, Will T spankings and the French lady chasing me :) into the boat. Food, your company, humour and guiding were spectacular - thank you.
It´s is what we all needed

Best Time!

We had the best time onboard.
To connor, thanks for always mooring us in the best spots and the great history lessons at every location!
Ada, thanks for always keeping us well fed, the meals were awesome every single time - fresh, tasty and filling!
Libra is a fantastic yacht but without the crew it would not be!


We had the most magical time in the BVI´s thanks to Connor and Ada. It ruly wouldn´t have been the same; hanging out with mates for a week. By the end we truly nailed the rubber duckie launch (#Pussers).
Thanks for all the fun times

Great Duo

What a time onboard Libra to start 2024! Connor and Ada were a great duo and had everything covered, from expert captaining to quality food, service and great company.
Well worth the long journey from Australia!

Good Food and Great Times!

Thankyou Connor and Ada for an unforgettable trip! A beautiful and memorable trip. We had two of us who had never cruised before and safe to say they will do it again!

Great food and great times!

One We Will Never Forget

We are writing to let you know how much we were blown away by our sailing trip to the Virgin Islands with you both! From the beginning you both made us feel welcome and very safe. Your confidence in sailing and top notch service were impeccable. You made sure we were well fed, having fun, and had all the comforts in place for us.

Ada - your meals were wonderful and every day we looked forward to what you were going to create for us. I especially loved waking up to the breakfasts and the evening desserts. Tim loved your dinner creations. The charcuterie boards were always ´right on time´ as sailing makes you so hungry. LOL. Everything was perfect!

Playing Catchphrase with you both was a highlight as you had fun with this insane crowd. It was impressive how you were not deterred from the playful ´smack-talk´ either. Coming back from an evening at Soggy Dollar Bar to find a lovely birthday surprise with balloons and decorations was so nice for Vicki - she was very touched.

Connor you have a great knowledge of the different islands. We appreciate you getting us to the Baths before the the crowds - how amazing to see it as the first footprints on the sand for the day. The snorkeling spots were so cool for me as I had very little knowledge of snorkeling. Thank you for taking us to Anegada, it was so beautiful touring the island to see the flamingos and beautiful water and beaches. The fresh Anegada lobster dinner was amazing!

Thank you again for making the tour exceptional and one we will never forget. We all said that you and Ada will always be our captain and chef when we return - hopefully in the very near future. Tim is sailing again with his buddies in the Spring and he will reach out for sure to maybe see you and Ada.

Doesn´t Get Much Better

It is hard to explain how wonderful our trip with you two was. We had such a great sailing adventure...and we all felt so secure with you two guiding us! Your competence, professionalism and sense of humor is hard to find...anywhere! Libra is very fortunate to have you both.
Our group was, well, ´eventful´ and maybe just a bit hard to manage...but you guys were just perfect and so flexible about what we needed.
The food was terrific and you made sure we had what we wanted and also where we wanted to go. Our schedule was your schedule...doesn´t get much better than that.
Vicki and I keep talking about this trip (and always will)...her birthday was so much fun and much of that was due to both of you making sure we were all happy.

Thank you again Connor and Ada...we hope you have a terrific 2024 and hope to see you soon

True Professionals

We recently had the pleasure of embarking on a seven day catamaran vacation around the stunning British Virgin Islands, and it was nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the exceptional team of Captain Connor Burns and Chef Ada on Libra.

Captain Connor is a true professional, navigating the crystal-clear waters with confidence and expertise. His knowledge of the area is unparalleled, ensuring that every moment of our journey was filled with breathtaking views and exciting destinations. Connor´s friendly and accommodating demeanor made us feel not just like passengers, but like honored guests on our private floating paradise.

Chef Ada, a culinary wizard in her own right, delighted our taste buds with every meal. From sunrise breakfasts to sunset dinners, each dish was a masterpiece of flavor and presentation. Ada´s attention to detail and ability to craft delicious meals, even in the confines of a catamaran´s galley, left us in awe. Dietary preferences were not just accommodated but elevated to gourmet experiences.

Together, Captain Connor and Chef Ada created a seamless and unforgettable vacation for us. The catamaran was pristine, the atmosphere was relaxed, and every request was met with a smile. It´s evident that this dynamic duo takes immense pride in ensuring their guests have the time of their lives.

If you´re considering a catamaran vacation around the British Virgin Islands, look no further. Captain Connor Burns and Chef Ada are the dream team that will turn your holiday into an adventure of a lifetime. We can´t wait for our next voyage with them!

Every Detail Was Incredible

Thank you for making this week one of the best for everyone onboard. The natural beauty of the islands and serenity of the boat would have always made for a nice vacation, but the two of you have turned this trip into one we will be talking about for years to come.

Your genuine enjoyment of having us here made us have such a better appreciation of the sea. Every detail on this trip has been incredible from the table settings to delicious meals to knowing all of the best coves on the island - it is hard to imagine what this trip would have looked like without you.

We hope to be here with you again sometime very soon.

Baie dankie

Thank you for an incredible week. We agreed that it was YOU TWO that really made is a vacation. This was so very special for us.

Best Week On Libra!

Thank you for the best week on Libra! We had so much fun - all thanks to both of you.

Everything from the food, to the watersports, to the snorkel spots, to the cocktails and cappuccinos was just perfect!

I think after this week, we can all say that ´Boat Life Is The Best Life´.

Thank you for everything you did to make this a trip of a lifetime for us and one we will never forget.

Best Of Times

Thank you so much for the most amazing week. Despite five straight days of rain, we had the best of times. Your energy and enthusiasm for the USVI and its waters was certainly contagious.

Lida, the food was outstanding - everything from the cocktails to the meals and snacks were delicious.

Chris, your passion for and knowledge of sailing is amazing. Thank you for entertaining all of our questions. And your energy was unending.

Thank you both for an incredible experience - we´ll surely be back.

Our New Best Mates!

To our new best mates, Chris and Lida

Cant wait to explore more with you all in the future.

Such An Escape

Thank you for such an incredible journey this past week. The USVI served us such an escape after a challenging past year and for this world.

Your kindness and hospitality truly made this special place blossom. The adventures (especially turtle and eagle ray sightings) were moments of pure joy and happiness.

We so enjoyed getting to know you both. Cheers to new friends near and far - we can´t wait to explore with you both again one day soon!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
What a wonderful week we had and so much is due to your amazing hospitality and hard work. From the beautiful bays and beaches to the wonderful food, we will remember this trip for years to come. My personal favourite was Little Lamshur Bay - simply gorgeous!

I could never get David to the USVI but I think he has been converted and is now a big fan.

So many Memories Were Made!

You both made our family getaway that much more special by becoming our extended family for a week.

Your hospitality, captivating personalities and your positive energy are amazing! Never stop being YOU.

We loved hearing the passion in your stories of South Africa and hope to get there some day to see if ourselves.

Be it the cappuccinos, delicious meals, PAIN KILLERS, games played after dinner or just life on Libra, you made it special for me and my dear family. Many memories were made!


Wow! Words do not do justice to explaining the amazing job you two did this week. I will now forever say my first sailing experience was a 10/10. Both of you have unexplainable, unyielding charisma. I can truly say we are leaving as friends.

The way both of you love your job and love people is so evident. No bad day aboard Libra!

I cant say thank you enough!

What A Week!

What a week! After 3 previous sailing trips, our expectations were VERY high. Chris and Lida FAR exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful trip and consider you both friends!

It was awesome starting mornings with fresh coffee and cappuccino. The food was fresh and amazing.

We were the envy of every other boat thanks to the ´reverse cabungee´ and incredible water sports experiences.

I also appreciated the depth of the conversations and personal connections.
It´s almost as if you could read our minds and anticipate our every desire in advance.

Thank you both for making such a memorable holiday for us.

Truly A Passion For People!

Thank you all so much for the best week EVER! I could not imagine ever sailing with anyone else again. Y´all were so hospitable, patient and joyful. Every expectation was exceeded.

I am excited to leave this trip with two new friends in y´all and cannot wait to see y´all again - there WILL be an ´again´.

Y´all are the hardest workers I have ever met and truly have a passion for people, service and your jobs. Keep on!

Gratitude For You Both

There are no words to describe the amount of gratitude I have for both of you. You made us feel like family from the moment we boarded the boat. There was no request that was ever any trouble for you. Your knowledge and work ethic are not common in our previous trips.

Thank you for making this one of the most memorable holidays to date. We cannot wait to see you two again.

Experience to Refuel Our Spirits

Thanks for a great week!
A wonderful experience to refuel our spirits with nature and our connection with our family.
may God bless you and continue to give you the joy and strength to continue giving your guests so much joy and peace.

An Amazing Week!

Thank you so much for an amazing week on Libra. While obviously the setting is absolutely gorgeous, we especially enjoyed our time with the two of you.

Lida, your cooking is delicious and proves that Peyton actually will eat ! :) Thank you for sharing your recipes - we will let you know how we do.

Chris, we love your energy. Not only do you have every fun sea toy available at a seconds notice but you do it with such a happy, fun-living vibe. We have never seen someone take such meticulous care of water toys)

We will truly miss the both of you the most from this trip. We will also miss our morning cappucchino´s and endless cocktails.

It was a ´pleasure´ meeting you guys.

I Could Not Be More Satisfied

My experience was nothing short of outstanding. The crew is top notch as is the yacht. I could not be more satisfied.
Indeed, we had a wonderful time with your very professional crew, Chris and Lida. Chris, is at the top of his game and most certainly the best skipper that I have had the pleasure of meeting.

Feel Like Family

We relaxed and were taken care of to perfection. Our team and boat were fantastic! Chris and Lida made us feel like family.

Pure Bliss!

Thank you for providing everything we could possibly desire: fun, adventure, great food, sublime cocktails, family time and your companionship. Though our time was short, we look forward to living with you on the Libra and sailing many oceans.

We loved Every Moment

Thank you for taking such great care of us. Whether it be making great cocktails, preparing delicious meals or attempting to throw us off the tube, we loved every moment - this has been an awesome adventure! P.S Get ready to ski in Tahoe!
