Captain Kyle Taylor and Chef Erica Van Ausdal

Captain Kyle began sailing at University in Bellingham Washington. From there he went on to acquire his first job on the water while crewing on a Schooner in the Mediterranean. He continued to build his resume working aboard ships in Tampa, Florida where he attended Sea School and later received his 100 ton USCG Captains license. Since obtaining his license, he has logged over 10,000 nautical miles, spanning the Mediterranean, Caribbean, South-Pacific, North-Pacific and Atlantic. Initially his focus was in boat deliveries to and from the U.S. East coast and the Caribbean, then later shifted into the teaching domain. After instructing in the Caribbean, he has spent the last several years teaching ASA courses throughout the San Juan Islands in Washington State.

Chef Erica fell in love with the water when she sailed through the San Juan Islands and up the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia as a child. Since then she has spent several years working as crew on small adventure yachts between the Hawaiian Islands and South East Alaska. She has also spent time working in the hospitality industry at a two Michelin star restaurant and several fine dining establishments along the West Coast of the United States. She is a Court of Masters Sommelier and seasoned bartender who loves working with local ingredients. In her free time she loves racing sailboats, traveling around to new dive spots, and surfing the West Coast. She is eager and ready to create incredible memories with you in the Caribbean.

**Captain Kyle and chef Erica are both fully vaccinated**

Ruckus Guest Reviews

Kyle and Erica are AMAZING!

Kyle and Erica are AMAZING! The meals Erica prepared were excellent. They attended to our every need and we came back a few pounds heavier than we had left! Again, Kyle and Erica are fantastic! Kyle is a phenomenal boat captain and was very friendly to us the whole time. Not having been to the USVI before, we trusted his judgement to set the itinerary as he saw fit.

Kyle and Erica were a delight to be around

Thank you for finding a great boat and crew for us, very last minute, for spring break. Kyle and Erica were a delight to be around for the week. It would only be normal for people get tired of each other, but with the yacht, crew and food, we all would have stayed longer, if possible.
