Crew Profile

Terry Ross
Captain Birthday:
1959
Captain License:
MCA Yachtmaster
Number of Crew:

Nationality/ies:
Irish
Language/s:
Terry & Ruth: English

Crew Profiles:

Terry has been messing around on boats since he was a child. Growing up on the east coast of Ireland, he started sailing dinghies and soon graduated onto larger boats. Even as a qualified electrician and optical technician, Terry yearned to turn his sailing hobby into a career. After his first trans-Atlantic crossing with friends, he did just that. A commercially endorsed MCA Yachtmaster (both sail and power), Terry previously served as both helm and launching authority for his local branch of Ireland's volunteer lifeboat service.
With almost 40 years diving experience and a passion for underwater photography, he enjoys sharing the delightful depths of the BVI with The Big Dog's guests. Diving is included for certified divers only. For non-certified divers, the crew will arrange a rendezvous with one of the local dive companies for an introduction to the pleasures of the deep. For guests who do not wish to dive, Terry and Ruth are happy to accompany their snorkeling guests in viewing the underwater world from the surface.

Ruth also sailed the Irish east coast from a very young age. She was also a volunteer crew for the lifeboat service. Their combined lifeboat experience makes safety a priority for all on board. Before joining Terry in a sailing career Ruth was a teacher. She always enjoyed cooking however and widened her culinary expertise with courses at Ashburton Chef’s Academy in Devon, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland, The Ritz, Paris and Cooks Academy in Dublin. Ruth prepares a diverse range of meals, and particularly loves using local fresh produce whenever possible. She will happily accommodate any special dietary requests.
Ruth and Terry have been running boats, both charter and private, for 16 years. They have clocked up tens of thousands of sea miles. They crossed the Atlantic together 4 times. They have worked in the Bahamas, many of the Caribbean Islands, the Mediterranean and around the Irish and UK coasts. When they arrived in the British Virgin Islands more than 10 years ago, the realization that this is where they would make their home was almost immediate.

They are a warm welcoming couple that works as a team in all aspects of the running of the boat. It is important to them that each guest on board The Big Dog enjoys every moment of their stay. They especially love chartering with kids on board (and adults are welcome too!)

How would you qualify skipper:
Terry was an amazing skipper. His knowledge of the islands was incredible and his ability to take us not only to where we requested, but also to places that we never would of thought of made the trip.

5

How would you qualify rest of the crew:
Ruth is maybe the best cook I have ever been around. Every meal we had was like eating in a five star restaurant. We joked at the end of the week that the worst meal we had was the only meal that we had off the boat, which Ruth did not prepare. Funny thing is that the meal was still an outstanding meal.

5

How would you qualify the yacht (comfort, features, general maintenance, etc):
Excellent. The yacht was sparkling clean, extremely comfortable with all of the conveniences you would need.

5


How would you qualify the itinerary:
Perfect. They took what we were wanting to do and then added in all kinds of fun places to visit.

5

How would you qualify the sports and leisure activities/equipment on board:
Excellent. We kayaked, snorkeled, used the floating mat and scuba dived. Terry was great in guiding us while scuba diving.

5

How would you qualify the food and drinks:
Food was amazing. Every single meal was literally like eating at a five star restaurant. Terry was great at having a pre-dinner drink lined up for us before dinner which he would surprise us with every day.

5

How would you qualify the entire experience of your trip:
Trip of a lifetime. We knew we were going to have a great time, but because of the easy booking experience and especially our crew, Terry and Ruth, we honestly could not have had a better time.
