Tim has skippered charter boats professionally and taught sailing since 1988. On board Jet Stream, Tim will lead you on a memorable sailing vacation, or guide you to your American Sailing Association (ASA) Certification up to the bareboat and catamaran cruising levelsï¿½.or both!
Tim's youth was spent in a number of different countries; indeed, he learned to sail while traveling in England. For several years, he cruised the Californian and Mexican coasts, and also managed the prestigious Marina Cabo San Lucas, located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. He has interwoven his sailing career with a parallel career as a golf professional. Formerly Stanford Universityï¿½s Head Golf Coach, he has also directed an internationally acclaimed golf school and pioneered leading-edge teaching technology. His teaching and coaching career has taken him to Mexico, Japan, Germany and the Dominican Republic, in addition to the United States. He holds a BA from Harvard University.
Although the BVI, Jet Streamï¿½s principal area of concentration, is not a hot-bed of golf, Tim will be happy to design a cruise through islands that feature golf, such as St. Croix and Puerto Rico, for guests who would like to blend sailing and golf vacations
Tim enjoys sharing his love of the laid-back life of catamaran cruising with their guests. He will be happy to quietly facilitate a private vacation-of-a-lifetime, or he will actively involve guests with as much of the operation of Jet Stream as they might enjoy, or he will offer formal or informal instruction. In any case, Tim is determined to make time spent aboard Jet Stream a high point in the lives of their guests. Tim is also excellent on the keyboard and will happily entertain guests with his 88 key Yamaha electronic keyboard if they ask.
Jet Stream is a family friendly, non-smoking boat with a non-smoking crew. Jet Stream also offers all-inclusive, fully-crewed charters with a chef, upon request.

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
