Growing up on the east coast sailing and the ocean were a large part of Rich’s childhood. After
an offshore sailing trip to the Caribbean at age 18, he was convinced that life at sea was
where he belonged.
After meeting Ekaterina a few years later, they purchased their own sailboat and cruised the east coast, Bahamas, and the Caribbean. In between cruising on their own boat they slowly began picking up jobs on yachts to fund their travels. This led to a full-time position as a captain and chef couple in charter catamarans in the Caribbean.
Rich has a great eye for detail and is very passionate about yacht maintenance, sailing, and entertaining guests. Kate is an excellent mate helping in all aspects of sailing, all while delivering fantastic meals from the galley. She is very passionate about using local quality ingredients in her meals, fitness, and daily Pilates.
Captain Rich hails from a small coastal town on the Atlantic Ocean. Growing up on the ocean,
he has spent his entire life on the water. Subsoquently, he was introduced to sailing after high school when he crewed on a boat headed for the Virgin Islands. Immediately he was hooked and spent the
next two years sailing and surfing the Caribbean.
After meeting Kate, the two of them purchased and rebuilt their own boat to cruise the islands. A few years later he decided to pursue sailing professionally. After obtaining his 50-ton master’s license with the UCSG, Rich and Kate have worked on boats along the East coast, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. With years of experience sailing together and extensive knowledge of Virgin Islands waters, you
will be in great hands.
Rich’s main passion in life is being in the ocean and enjoying the outdoors. As an active
member of the Surfrider Foundation, he is always looking for ways to live a more sustainable life.
He looks forward to sharing his passion for water sports with guests, whether it’s tracking down
waves along Tortola’s north shore, stand-up paddle boarding, or wakeboarding.
His favorite part of the day is entertaining guests with craft cocktails and tales of the days
adventures while the boat effortlessly sails off into the sunset.
Growing up in a landlocked city in Russia, the idea of sailing the ocean had never crossed
Kate’s mind. It wasn’t until a summer exchange program brought her to the Atlantic coast that
she met Rich. Now married for 9 years and after many sailing trips on their own boat, she
couldn’t imagine life any other way.
