CAPTAIN HEATHER & MATE/CHEF DERREK
A life-long Mainer who was born loving the sea and her state’s nautical traditions. She was raised as all Mainers are to value hard work, enjoy dry humor, respect Mother Nature, and love all well-made things. Her grandmother fostered in her a love of simple, delicious meals with an emphasis on from-scratch making and baking with fresh, wholesome ingredients.
In 2015 Heather was hired on a historic schooner – from the moment she stepped aboard, she was utterly hooked. Working onboard combined her love of sailing, hospitality, and the challenges of cooking from-scratch meals for thirty people on a wood stove in a tiny galley on a rolling ship. She returned for several summers to teach, but also to learn and improve her sailing, windjamming, and culinary skills. Working with John, Heather has learned how to chart, navigate, and work the systems on any boat.
Seeking new waters and fresh opportunities, John and Heather became a delivery team, sailing thousands of nautical miles together. On crewed charters they create customized experiences for their guests: no two charters are the same.
In their off time, they travel to new places to surf, eat, dance, and sail together. Their enthusiasm for life, adventure, teaching, and all things ocean make them perfectly suited to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for their guests.
Derek grew up in Tampa Florida where he started working in restaurants as a teenager and has held positions from busboy to kitchen manager and even fine dining waiter. After a career in the automotive industry, Derek has now resurrected his culinary career and combined his passion for cooking with that for travel and exploration. While working his way up to a mate on large sailing vessels Derek has been to culinary training at Ashburton cookery school and has completed The Ships Cook Assessment (the international standard for a yacht chef). Derek is passionate about creating food from the most natural and raw ingredients whenever possible. Sea or farm to table, he considers the source to be very important for providing healthy delicious sustenance. Having extensive restaurant and fine dining experience, he has worked in Italian, Mediterranean, Asian, and Indian restaurants. Fascinated by how food can fuel, nourish and even heal the body, he is on a constant quest to provide nourishment with joy, gratification, and satisfaction through delicious food.

We had an amazing vacation aboard. The boat is clean, newly renovated and absolutely beautiful sailing along the water. We had an amazing captain. He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of sailing. We learned a lot and it was so great that he was willing and interested to teach us about sailing and he is a lot of fun! The chef was amazing. I still dream about her incredible meals. From her special cocktails at sunset to her pulled pork that she was making for days, I had some of the best meals of my life. Every breakfast, lunch and dinner was absolutely beautiful in presentation and had incredible flavors. She also makes sure that she knows the likes and dislikes of everyone on the boat so that she can ensure that everyone has a great meal every time. This was our second boat vacation and again we loved every minute of our trip!...For me, I say without hesitation that this was the greatest vacation of all time. It actually felt more like two trips: an exotic adventure crossed with a five star food and wine excursion. ...The Boat so much larger than expected. The rooms were two to three times larger than the beds. The showers were large even though we chose to use the outdoor showers after exiting the water. We found that the community areas were perfect to hold all nine of us and there were also many places to hide and get some alone time when needed.
The captain had an amazing knack of anticipating our needs. When we wanted adventure, he gave us adventure. When we wanted to get off the boat, get off the boat, just hang and relax, he always was one step ahead of us. He was so accommodating and could easily transition between this first class butler/attendant, adventure surfer/guide, DJ, bartender, and all while safely navigating the BVIs! The chef spoiled us with super creative, beautifully plated dishes. I literally could not wait to see what she prepared next from breakfast to lunch followed by a post activity snack. Our kids still ask about the boat and crew. They were amazing teachers about the craft of sailing. Safety came first; they made it fun for the kids and relaxing for the parents. They took all of our (often disparate) plans and wishes into consideration and did so openly and graciously. Christmas 2020 was among the best for us (maybe the single best?) and the crew deserve credit and many thanks for that!dinner. ...Every meal had different proteins, varied ethnicities, fresh veggies, and amazing flavors. She constantly surprised and taught me so much about new combinations and techniques. Long story short, for some amazing food, adventure, relaxation and safe non sun-burnt fun in the islands. We cannot wait to sail with them again.
Our time with you has gone too fast. From the moment we boarded you have greeted us with a smile, an offer of a cocktail or asking what you could do for us. Simply amazing. Your service has been superb, the food above any restaurant & the captaining awesome. Looking forward to hearing from you both in the future and hopefully we will see you sometime in the future in the islands.
Michelle helped match us up with the most Amazing crew. By far this was the best family vacation with my children I have ever had. The crew were wonderful and the boat was great.
We had an amazing trip. Thank you for getting the sails out on the travel days & finding the perfect anchor points. our only regret was requesting any meals on land. The food was imaginative and far surpassed expectations. We hope to set sail with you again and you are both welcome in our home anytime!
Thank you for an amazing adventure! The food was exquisite, the expertise was top notch, and the destinations made for wonderful memories! We appreciate you sharing your home with us. And we look forward to another trip soon!
The boat is amazing! They are talented when it comes to the unbelievable job they do, but they are also great people. It isn't every day you can say you'd love to see someone again. These two certainly fit the bill.
Thank you for sharing your incredible home with us. It was a dream trip, made even more memorable by the two of you. It was a dream trip, made even more memorable by the tow of you. We've never felt more relaxes, at east & present. I can't thank you enough for giving my mode of operating planner-self a pause. We can't wait to see you again.
I enjoyed this trip a lot. The great meals, the music, the sailing, the snorkling, swimming, shopping and sitting and enjoying the beauty around us. I learned how to fish and we had a great time. I saw pelicans, sting rays, sea turtles, tropical fish and tarpins. I have never seen any of that cool stuff before and it was fun seeing them. Thank you so much for this awesome trip!
Thank you for following your hearts and doing what you love because of your love of sailing, service & cooking-we have been blessed. Our bucket list vacation was everything we prayed for without knowing how amazing it would be. You catered to us with experience that brought us unbelievable beauty with snorkeling, beaches and more. John and I will always remember this vacation with such joy and happiness and love. You are both amazing people and we will pray for your continued prosperity in all you do!
Thank you for taking good care of us as we celebrated Doug's 50th birthday. The sights were beautiful and the food was amazing. If we could, we'd call the islands home. Great to meet you both, until next time!
