MEET THE CREW

Capt. RJ


This fun sailing duo has been on the Caribbean blue together for nearly 5 years! As adventurers, delivery crew, private charter crew and as sailing instructors; RJ and Jenna have always found a way to sail together.

Captain RJ, originally from Alaska, began sailing many years ago in the Puget Sound, surrounded by mountains and the beautiful city of Seattle. Longing for warmer wind and water (as many of us do), RJ decided to sell his businesses, officially downsize his life and move to St. Thomas to become a sailboat captain. And that is exactly what he did. Not long after moving to the USVI, RJ found himself the co-captain of a fun little day charter boat named, Rumbaba. Though she was a simple little 39ft Hunter monohull; Rumbaba was a blast to take guests out on. Incredible scenery, snorkeling with turtles, delicious grilled lunch entrees and all the fresh cocktails you could handle made each outing something special for every guest. Making the top 10 of all activities to do on St. Thomas and Trip Advisor verified that!

Chef Jenna


First Mate Jenna grew up on Newman Lake, Washington; a beautiful little lakeside community outside of Spokane. Her love for boating began from a very young age; sitting on her Dad’s lap and racing the speed boat from shore to shore. Jenna’s eventual move to Seattle only gave her more access to playing on sailboats on the Puget Sound. Loving the city, but needing escape, boat camping, or as Jenna would say, “Bamping”, around the many islands and bays of the sound became a frequent weekend event. She could also always be found as steady and faithful crew for the infamous Duck Dodge races of South Lake Union!

The wind and the sea continued to call on RJ too, and he found himself as crew on some pretty slickracing sailboats. Again however, the warmer wind and waters of the Caribbean continued to call; this time, literally...


RJ’s original sailing instructor, from many years earlier in Seattle, was on the other end of that phone call. He had established a sailing school in Grenada and, through social media, had seen that RJ was back in the Puget Sound sailing.

“Have you ever thought about teaching sailing?” he said through the phone. “I think you’d be great at it.” He added.
RJ laughed at first, “Man, I’m still out here learning to sail!”

His response was all RJ needed to hear: “RJ, there is no better way to learn than to teach.” And with that, the next chapter of sailing began. RJ diligently acquired all the proper certifications through the US Coast Guard and the American Sailing Association and began to teach sailing at Seattle Sailing Club. What a blast! RJ absolutely found a calling. This is also when he met his beautiful wife, Jenna. She was a lighthearted beer can racing sailor when they met and she was fascinated with his plans to live a Caribbean sailing life. He was going and he hoped she would visit, often. After about 6 months from that first important phone call, RJ moved himself to Grenada. Sight unseen prior to arrival, he immediately fell in love with Grenada and The Grenadines. How can you not? They are the friendliest people in the Caribbean; hands down. And beauty was everywhere! What a place.


“Work” was teaching term charter sailing and exploring all the amazing little spots along the way. Oh what fun this job is! Teaching people who are so excited and switched on to learn how to captain a boat for themselves. Many students planned to charter boats with their family and friends, some just wanted to see what it was all about by testing their will (and stomachs) and still others came to learn how to sail off into retirement, literally.

Jenna continued to join the Grenada adventure. At first as an ASA student herself. She kept coming back to join RJ on more adventures and for more sailing. Their combined passion for sailing has only been surpassed by their love for each other. The more they sailed, the more obvious it became that this was to be their wonderful and adventure filled life together. Teaching became a calling for them both and they began to charter private couple’s cruising instruction. Does it get any better than that?! Working with your love and teaching other couples with similar dreams to yours how to make it into a reality! It has been truly amazing. Just ask them and you will get the fully animated version... they don’t tell short stories... Haha, what fun would that be?!

5 years later; RJ married the beautiful Jenna. They’ve sailed over 20,000 nautical miles together. Over 300 ASA students graduated. 2 Outstanding ASA Instructor of the Year awards. 100’s of new friends and lifetimes of memories. Life has been good to say the least.

It’s not always sailing for these two... whenever possible, Jenna and RJ enjoy scuba diving, kiteboarding, hiking and traveling together. Stateside, RJ laces up the skates whenever he can smell an ice rink and Jenna gets all giddy when she can strap on the crampons and climb to the tallest mountain. Family and friends are always in the mix everywhere they go.

So now it is time to make some more new friends and show you all the beauty that the Virgin Islands have to offer.

TESTIMONIALS
January 2021

"O.V. was brand new, clean and had every amenity one could ask for, including some fun add-ons that RJ has collected, i.e. drone, beach games, underwater subwing, etc.

RJ is a very proficient captain, and we always felt safe and confident under his care. He is also a very gracious host filled with interesting stories and information. He is very willing to share his experiences and vast knowledge of cruising. We enjoyed his company very much.

Jenna is lovely to be around and also a very proficient boater. Her skills in cuisine far exceeded our expectations. (my daughter did a TikTok on her daily meals, and it went viral with 15K likes). We enjoyed every meal on board and always looked forward to the next one.

As a team RJ and Jenna compliment each other. It was a pleasure to be around them. We always felt comfortable with them, and they were open to any questions or requests.

My family agrees we would cruise on O.V. with RJ and Jenna again in a heart beat."

Christmas 2020

All fives. We had an amazing time.

Q1: Using a 5-Star Rating system: The condition of the boat was:
COMMENTS: Five. The boat was extremely clean and spacious for our needs. Jenna made it feel like home and spent so much time tidying up, we had no idea when she found time to do this in the midst of making amazing meals for us to enjoy.

Q2: Using a 5-Star Rating system: How were the “ toys” and watersports on your boat? (kayak, snorkel equipment,
SUP board, tube, inflatables,etc)
COMMENTS: Five. We were able to use most of the toys with the exception of the paddle board and tube, but that was due to timing and not anything the crew did or didn't do. The kayak was comfy, the snorkel gear was accessible, and the floating dock was useful for our nonswimmers on board.

Q3: Using a 5-Star Rating system: The food & Chef service were:
COMMENTS: Five. The food was one of our biggest apprehensions, but Jenna had our taste buds tingling from the very first bite. The dishes were innovative, tasty, and filling. Jenna's service was exceptional. She constantly asked if we needed more of anything and kept tabs on our likes and dislikes.  We did run out of some of our favorites but it was an opportunity for Jenna to introduce new alternatives.

Q4: Using a 5-Star Rating system: How would you rate the crew and service overall?
COMMENTS:  Five. I cannot imagine a better crew out there. RJ was so knowledgeable about sailing and the industry. He was also very personable and joined us for some of the activities. Jenna was equally wonderful as chef and mate. They both made us feel like family and accommodated our 6 month old traveler. We had a peace of mind having him sleep in the living room while Jenna made us our meals every night and they never made us feel like he was a burden.

Q5: Using a 5-Star Rating system: How would you rate the Charter trip overall?
COMMENTS: Five.  It was truly a magical experience and a trip that has landed on the top of list of "best yet".  Although, we were all native Virgin Islanders, we were able to experience the Virgin Islands in a very different light and visit unique, untouched and distinct places.

Q6: Did you have any concerns or suggestions for improvements? I would have liked more time sailing versus a single anchor a day and use of the onboard toys. Other than that, it was exceptional.

Q7: Any additional comments on your charter, crew, yacht that you’d like to share?
May we anonymously post your charter review on our social media?  Yes.

Q8: When & where can we help you book your next charter? :) Sometime in 2021

December 2021

We just returned from the best week ever aboard OV with Jenna and RJ. To start, OV is a beautiful new boat. Our rooms were spotless and comfy. Jenna and RJ were the best team. Jenna’s food rocked and RJ’s Captain’s Curry did not disappoint! Jenna and RJ are an adorable couple that exude positive energy. RJ used his drone to provide us with irreplaceable videos and photos of our trip including hikes, beach olympics, sailing regattas and water sports. We can’t wait to visit OV again and continue our winning streak .
