Oui Chérie Crew Profile
Ryan and Jill have lived aboard and sailed over 6,000 nautical miles together. As many guests say, they are a ‘dream team’ and work almost effortlessly beside each other. The couple’s shared passion for the ocean and tropical climate drew them to the Virgin Islands in 2017 where they began chartering on catamarans. With their experience and enthusiasm for life, this crew creates the perfect blend of professionalism and adventure. There is no doubt, that a week aboard Oui Cherie will surpass expectations and become your best vacation yet!
Captain Ryan is from a little fishing town called Shady Side, nestled along Maryland´s western shore. He learned to sail on the Chesapeake Bay when he was eleven years old. When he was sixteen, he became a certified US Sailing Instructor and ran his local junior sailing program. Ryan´s coastal urge led him to the warmer waters of Wilmington, North Carolina where he attended Cape Fear´s Marine Technology School and acquired his 100 ton Master Captain´s License. During the summer, you would find Ryan teaching surf lessons at Wrightsville Beach and sailing with his friends as often as he could.
Jill grew up in Annapolis Maryland. Ironically only about a 30 minute drive from Ryan’s hometown. Jill spent her entire childhood zipping around the Chesapeake too, but by means of a power on a Mastercraft ski boat. You name it: wakeboarding, skiing, tubing, and wakesurfing. She was driving her dad barefoot behind the boat by the age of five.
College brought her south to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where she earned a degree in Health and Applied Science. Upon graduation, Jill started her own personal training business and saved up money to travel. A few years after, Jill became a yoga and stand-up paddleboard instructor and Ryan spent his time developing his maritime skills: chartering boats, rigging, surveying, and gaining lots of valuable sea time as a boat delivery captain.
Ryan and Jill met through mutual friends and their first date was a road trip. Their similar passions for surfing, boating, and good music made it natural for these two fish to fall for one another. What they didn´t know was that from here on out- the world would become their oyster. ´Will work for travel´ is their motto! The pair are perfect travel companions and have spent lots of time in search of waves in far off places, including Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Iceland, and the Caribbean.
By 2016, Ryan and Jill bought their very first home, a 1985 Niagara 35´ sailboat and moved back to the Chesapeake Bay. Vacation time no longer consisted of long plane rides, but long sails.A few years after, Jill became a yoga and stand-up paddleboard instructor and Ryan spent his time developing his maritime skills: chartering boats, rigging, surveying, and gaining lots of valuable sea time as a boat delivery captain.
Throughout their travels Ryan and Jill have been introduced to new recipes and cooking styles which has greatly influenced their charter menu. Jill learned to appreciate the ‘art’ of cooking in New Zealand where infused flavors, unique tastes, and exceptional plating skills are a part of their way of life. All of her adventures have contributed her evolution as a chef and her tasty creations in the Oui Cherie galley. Jill’s cooking style is colorful, healthy, and innovative. She also offers a variety of gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options.
The couples decision to move to the Virgin Islands in 2017 was one of the easiest in their lives. There is not many people that can top their appreciation the for sailing, diving, surfing, fishing, local agriculture/flavor, and good company aboard!
Ryan and Jill are stoked to completing their second season down here Virgin Islands and look forward to welcoming all generations of family and friends aboard!

´Ryan and Jill- First off thank you both so much for such a fantastic week. I seriously don´t think it could have been better. This week on the boat has been everything I personally needed: to relax and enjoy the moment again. I´ve never been sailing before and Ryan I think you´ve convinced me its the only way to travel now. One of the hardest things about going home is probably going to be lack of Jill´s cooking and I live in NOLA! Thank you both so much I can´t say it enough. -Taylor F.´

This boat was truly our home for a week and we thank you both for the time.
Jill + Ryan- Every experience we had on Oui chérie exceeded all expectations. From the food that Jill prepared each day to Ryan’s Moscow Mules, the fresh herbs, our tender rides to each island, the incredible sunset cruises, horseback riding in Anegada, bonefishing, the Baths, snorkeling, and our favorite spot- Oil Nut Bay!! You introduced us to new places and new people that we will hold dear to our heart always. This boat was truly our home for a week and we thank you both for the time.
Xoxo- Poppy, CeCe, Shawn, Courtney, + Henry

Rain or shine- you made sure every minute created a memory we will never forget
Dear Ryan and Jill,
How lucky can a family be to meet you and share a vacation of a lifetime! :) Rain or shine- you made sure every minute created a memory we will never forget. Food was fantastic! As beautiful to look at and as delicious to taste! Whether navigating through rough water, guiding us through underwater grottos, hiking up a picturesque hill, your expertise and confidence always made us feel safe- all that we had to do was relax and enjoy! THANK YOU! If your travels take you anywhere near Cincinnati, there is a mooring buoy waiting for you!
With Love & Gratitude,
The R. Family(Cinncinatti OH)

You already know this, but you guys are a great team- you make everyone around you happy :) We will be back for sure! So thank you from thr bottom of our hearts- you gave us such a gift this week!
Kate,Scott, Wade, Ted, and Benner
You started as our captain and first mate, but now we consider you part of our friend group.
“We planned this trip for 10 months. We had ideas and dreams of what we might expect. You made every dream real and for exceeded those dreams. You took such good care of us every day and practically every minute. Thank you for spoiling us! You started as our captain and first mate, but now we consider you part of our friend group. It would be great to see you again!”

We are so appreciative of all your efforts to make this a memorable trip
´Wow! Thank you for a most amazing and unique spring break! Our first, and not to be our last sail. Thank you for the amazing food, desserts, drinks, adventures, and sailing. A healing trip for sure! You knew exactly when and where and how to show us the best of BVI! We are so appreciative of all your efforts to make this a memorable trip. Lots of love and thanks.´
- Charlotte, Scot, Charlie & William
Jill you should create a recipe book- think I am going to need it!
´Ryan and Jill- Thank you sooooo much for all the lovely things you did for me. You split my food up if I didn´t like it and helped me get through the strong tide when I was struggling. I will miss you guys so much and hope you get to visit us back home. Thanks Ryan for teaching me how to fish and sail. I don´t want to leave, but at some point I have to leave. If I had one power, it would be to slow down time and I would be able to spend more time with you guys. It´s a bit like leaving your mum-because you don´t want to leave her, but at some point, you have to. Thanks a trillion!´
-Luke Carr, Age 10
´Dearest Jill and Ryan, This has been such a life changing experience for our family and we very much needed. We now have a new purpose to save towards and one we hope to share again with you both. I have to say you both surpassed all our wishes. You have both been the making of this holiday. From the moment we all woke to the moment we slept- you made the most of every bit of it: the service, the knowledge, the food, friendships, and laughs. The kids have enjoyed your company so much too. Thank you for being so kind and patient with them. They are both so much more confident in the water now too! The food has been simply outstanding! Jill you should create a recipe book- think I am going to need it! We leave with huge, happy relaxed, content, and fulfilled hearts and smiles. Thank you so very much and hope to see you again soon. Much love.´

Your attention to detail was appreciated and the little goodies you brought for all the locals so they are sure to take care of your guests as well as you do, says a lot about who you are.
´Dear Jill and Ryan- My tan is fading, but fortunately the memories of our great time aboard the White House haven´t. You guys are the perfect hosts--providing great recommendations for what to see and do in the BVI. Every little detail--from the towel animals, to the fresh herbs and recipes from Jill´s handwritten cookbook, expert cocktail making skills, awesome snorkeling guides, captain and first mate-chef extraordinaire!! Thanks for nursing one of our seasick friends, my tubing adventure, and the yummy meals, happy hour snacks and desserts. Your attention to detail was appreciated and the little goodies you brought for all the locals so they are sure to take care of your guests as well as you do, says a lot about who you are. Thank you from the Madtown Mermaids! Hope Mary Margaret (their inflatable flamingo) is hanging in there and providing floating fun to all the White House guests after us!´

Everything was perfect! More than we would have hoped for... from the food, to the service, to the sailing... you guys did it all right (and thens some). We really feel like we have made friends for life and hope our paths cross again! Either in Texas or the Caribbean! You are always welcome to come visit if you´re passing through and we will definitely look you up for our next sailing adventure. I can´t promise gourmet meals but I can promise lots of laughs!

You guys are by far my favorite crew yet.
Ryan & Jill,
You guys are by far my favorite crew yet. I apologize for our loudness, waking you up and banging against your room. Thanks for taking us to cool places and being cool. I really enjoyed tubing and doing yoga. I´m really happy this is my boat now, but I wish Ryan would´ve dropped a few bars. I love you guys.
I´ve been on so many sailing vacations and this one is by far the very best!
I´ve been on so many sailing vacations and this one is by far the very best! This is the first boat I´ve been on that had enough sunscreen, shampoo and wet water to handle four teenage girls. We loved Conch Island, The Wonky Dog, paddle board yoga, scuba, scooters on Anegada. The list goes on and on. So Sad to leave. Thanks Jill and Ryan for a great vacation.
Each day was greeted by your smiles and has been filled with beautiful spots
Ryan & Jill,
As Mark said, this has been an adventure! There has been years conquered on this trip! I now officially ´do water´! You´ve taught me so much about sailing, until this week I didn´t know dinghy had an ´h´ in it!
Each day was greeted by your smiles and has been filled with beautiful spots, despite the devastation of the islands. I loved The Baths and the Indians; Diamond Reef was beautiful, but I may have enjoyed Monkey Point the best. Thanks for teaching to paddle board, I loved it!
Our time with you has been very special. Know that you are loved and prayed for.
This has been one of those ´once in a lifetime´ true adventures.
Ryan & Jill,
This has been one of those ´once in a lifetime´ true adventures. You two have made it extra special. Ryan, you are what every captain should be. Capable, hospitable, knowledgable, great chef, open and honest. Jill, first mate, chef, yoga instructor, prize master, etc. What an absolutely wonderful time we´ve had with both of you! This trip has been so much more than a vacation, it´s been an experience. I feel like I´m closer to these islands and the people that really live here. I hope that you two have an extreme life together. You are well matched. Pamela and I are in your debt. If you are ever in Tulsa, please stay with us. We have extra beds. May god bless you both.
You guys checked off every box on John´s 50th birthday check list and then some
Ryan & Jill

We wish you all the best and can´t wait to see what the future holds for you.
Keep living the dream.
