Soterion Crew Profile
James (Ish) Alexander (Captain)
As a child, Ish anxiously awaited the arrival of summer when he would head to his grandparents’ cottage in Ontario. The waters of Lake Huron became the playground where Ish learned to sail his grandparents’ 16’ Wayfarer. On any given sunny summer day, he could be found out on the lake struggling to untangle himself from a rat’s nest of lines or being caught by a sneaky gust that caused him to capsize. Those first few years with the Wayfarer served as a foundation for a great passion for sailing. After graduating from high school, Ish attended Prescott College in Arizona where he fed an insatiable appetite for the outdoors. College orientation, a 3-week backpacking trip through a canyon in Arizona, opened a whole new world of outdoor pursuits and possibilities. Over the next 4 years, he filled his spare time with surfing, backcountry skiing, white water rafting, rock climbing, stargazing, campfire-ing, and howling at the moon! A desire to sail in salt water persisted, even in the desert. Ish satisfied his salt water cravings with a job living and working aboard sailboats in the British Virgin Islands. Over 6 summers with Sail Caribbean, a summer camp for teens, Ish served as captain, fleet captain, and program director. He was able to also fulfill a lifelong dream of working on a commercial salmon fishing boat in Alaska. Since graduating from
college, he has spent the off seasons splitting time between the BVI, Arizona, Florida, and Alaska. His time in the BVI has given him outstanding knowledge of the islands and the natural treasures to be enjoyed. He has a deep love for these beautiful islands and the surrounding waters. He is excited to be living and working in the BVI, sharing his love for sailing and the islands with each guest that steps aboard Soterion.
Julia Malone (Chef and First Mate)
Born and raised in a family that regularly moved homes and always cherished the outdoors, Julia became infatuated with a lifestyle of outdoor adventure at a young age. Whether it was exploring the backcountry via mountain biking, hiking, and camping or the vastness of the sea via sailing and SCUBA diving, she developed an incessant yearning to understand and interact with the wild places of the world. Graduating from the University of Florida (UF) with a BA in Environmental Science and a BS in Psychology, Julia has dedicated much of her time and passion to preserving and protecting these very wild places that she has grown to treasure.
Julia gained certifications as a Scientific Diver, presided over UF’s chapter of the National Surfrider Foundation, and volunteered for the Association of Reef Keepers where she cleaned the beaches and waters of the BVI and worked to conserve marine sea turtles. Julia has spent three summers with Sail Caribbean. She has served as captain, sailing instructor, dive advisor, and marine biology teacher. With each summer spent in the BVI, Julia has grown in her knowledge and appreciation of the sea, marine life and the culture of the islands. Her experience complements her Wilderness First Responder and Rescue Diver certifications in safely sharing her passion and enthusiasm for outdoor recreation with people of all ages and experience levels.
A background working in restaurants and preparing meals for Sail Caribbean has given her an appetite to create fresh and delicious food for charter guests. Julia is looking forward to creating an unforgettable week for guests aboard Soterion!

Soterion Guest Reviews
Guests aboard SOTERION for New Years, 2015/2016 said
We had a fantastic time. Ben and Rachel were wonderful. Apparently, it was the first time they had a group of mostly children on the boat. They were very accommodating Rachel went out of her way to prepare kid-friendly meals per our request (she made sure to have fixins for peanut butter & jelly sandwiches on board); the food was abundant and fabulous. It really exceeded our expectations. Ben was very patient with the kids even let our 12 year old drive the boat. We would definitely like to do it again someday.
The Perry Family
It has been 5 weeks since we returned from our BVI charter aboard
Soterion but I needed to throw you guys a line.
We have to rave about Ben,
Rachel and Soterion. You will do your clients a great favor
recommending Soterion when she is available. We had eight friends in
our charter including two charter ´newbies´.
Ben is a capable and engaging captain and Rachel is a phenomenal chef
and first mate. One of our friends requested gluten free foods and
Rachel prepared several options that were shared and enjoyed by all.
Soterion was a beautiful cat well appointed and comfortable.
The trip exceded our expectations despite this being our third (or
fourth) charter in the BVI.
Looking forward to future charters; stay safe
