Lavonne Brown

Affectionately known as “V,” Lavonne grew up in the Carolinas, enjoying and exploring rivers and the Appalachian Mountains. Later she fell in love with all things ocean - sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling - adventuring, and traveling after moving to Key West, Florida, over 18 years ago, where she lived aboard her monohull sailboat, Restless Ketch, for 6 years.

While cruising the Caribbean, she explored Belize’s azure waters and spectacular marine “rainforests” and slowly made it her seasonal home. She enjoys sharing her love of the sea, her passion for life, and the invaluable experiences she has gained over the years - everything from child counseling to teaching scuba diving as a PADI-certified instructor to working in restaurants and working with animals. She has done it all!

Lavonne has her RYA/MCA Yachtmaster License, USCG Captain’s License, and ASA Instructor Certificate. For those of you interested in learning how to sail, she can’t wait to help you complete your ASA Sailing Certification Courses!

V looks forward to meeting you, showing you the freedom and relaxation that only “being at sea” provides, and treating you to all the wonderful experiences Belize offers.

Christie Gentle

Christina Gentle is a Belizean originally from the small northern community of Corozal. Having managed a popular restaurant and bar in San Pedro, her passion is cooking and wowing guests with her gourmet twists on local cuisine. She is also becoming skilled at spear fishing and is giving the guys a run for their money!

Christie is a big people person and a gracious host to our guests, which is why many repeat guests request her repeatedly.

Sand Star Guest Reviews

Cruising and ASA Courses on the Sand Star

My husband and I spent six days on the Sand Star, a 50-foot luxury catamaran, to take American Sailing Association (ASA) courses. This was our first trip on a catamaran and we loved the pleasures of sailing 24/7. Outdoor dining at every meal, swimming off the boat, and stargazing were delightful. We felt pampered with all-inclusive food and drink service. Watching dolphins swim next to our boat was exciting. Each day was truly unique and we got to see and explore a few Belizean islands while learning how to sail the Sand Star. We are happy we got ASA certified and look forward to future sailing trips!
