|Number of Crew:
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 levels.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 Universitys 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 Streams 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.
