Gaiamar Crew Bio
Captains Gail Bowdish and Barry Lyon have been sailing together since 2009, logging over 13,000 nautical miles since then including a transatlantic crossing. Before joining forces, they had logged in excess of 20,000 nautical miles each, sailing and living the cruising life for many years. Their sailing resumes include the US east coast, US west coast, Mexico, Gulf of Mexico, the Abacos, Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, Greece, Panama, the Windward and Leeward islands, and the Great Lakes. They met floating, of course, and within minutes they recognized their kindred spirits. (Ask us to tell you the story.) Seldom have they been apart since that first meeting. Gail has established herself as an accomplished singlehanded sailor, earning the Five Lakes Award from the Great Lakes Singlehanded Society, one of just seven people and the only woman to have done so, and also singlehanding Gaiamar throughout the Caribbean. She is a certified ASA instructor who can teach you the basics of sailing or help you to learn advanced coastal cruising skills, navigation, and can even get you certified to charter on your own. We love teaching couples to sail together as a team, and enjoy hearing about former students who then move aboard and cast off the dock lines as we have done.
If instruction and certification are not on your to-do list, then we can fill or empty your days as you wish. Whether your idea of an ideal getaway includes rendezvous diving, snorkeling, hiking, exploring historical sites or relaxing on the beach with a great book, we can take you there. As your cruising chef, Barry has a focus on meeting or exceeding your goals for comfort, relaxation, exploration, excitement, night life, and island cuisine. We have developed a menu that includes our favorite dishes from the islands we have visited throughout the eastern Caribbean, and always use fresh ingredients. Gail and Barry enjoy sharing their live aboard lifestyle, and can customize your escape to your specific interests. Our cruising grounds include the "Island of Enchantment" Puerto Rico and the Spanish Virgin islands of Culebra and Vieques, to "America's Caribbean" the USVI, to the sailor's paradise of the BVI and beyond to the entire Leeward and Windward islands. We can help you to discover which island is YOUR favorite island. Come sailing with us!
