Captain Ryan and Chef Jill offer guests the “presidential” treatment on this beautiful Lagoon 500! “An enthusiastic, experienced professional crew for BVI Catamaran Charter WHITE HOUSE. Active, with a love for the outdoors and diving.”
White House is a professionally-maintained 2012 Lagoon 500 with a successful charter history. Her crew is active, extremely personable, and focused on five-star service. The yacht is outfitted with full dive equipment, a roomy and powerful tender, and full of water toys! Both crew members are PADI divemasters and love being active.
The captain is from a little fishing town called Shady Side, nestled along Maryland’s western shore. Growing up on the Chesapeake Bay, Ryan was naturally drawn to the water. He learned to sail when he was eleven years old. When he was sixteen, he became a certified US Sailing Instructor and ran his local junior sailing program.
Ryan’s coastal urge led him to the warmer waters of Wilmington, North Carolina, where he attended Cape Fear’s Marine Technology School and acquired his 100-ton Master Captain’s License. During the summer, you would find Ryan teaching surf lessons at Wrightsville Beach and sailing with his friends as often as possible. He is also PADI Dive Master and loves sharing the underwater world!
Jill grew up in the sailing capital of the United States, Annapolis- Maryland. College brought her south to the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where she earned a degree in Health and Applied Science. Upon graduation, Jill packed her bags and bought a one-way ticket to New Zealand, where she lived and worked for the Red Cross for a year. Not long after her return to Wilmington, North Carolina, she started her own personal training business called Shore Fitness and spent her mid-day breaks running at the beach, surfing, and or going to yoga. While her culinary interests include cooking colorful and tasty, healthy but delicious(!) foods, she is well-versed in more traditional and special diet preparation as well!
We are thrilled to have these two on the BVI Sailing team. We know they will treat their guests to unforgettable charter vacations in the British Virgin Islands. Their positive, upbeat energy is as contagious as their smiles.
