Catamaran Black Tortuga Crew: Tommy and Janey

Meet Tommy and Janey, a hard-working, fun and outgoing team of sailing enthusiasts who will show you an amazing and adventurous week on board the beautiful Black Tortuga. Tommy’s sailing skills and vast knowledge of the Islands and its hidden gems, paired with Janey’s love and passion for cooking, will guarantee an unforgettable week amongst the beautiful Caribbean Islands.

Tommy developed a passion for sailing at a young age, growing up sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, he quickly advanced from racing small dinghies to getting a keelboat of his own at age 15. He took to the sea after high school for a year of cruising around the Caribbean, before returning to Virginia to complete University. Adventure has always been in his blood. During University his passion for sailing was peaked more than ever and he took every break possible to get back on the ocean completing multiple offshore deliveries.

During his final year of University, he became a professional captain, receiving his USCG 100-ton masters license and then sailed down to the Virgin Islands from Virginia, aboard his own sailboat. Working the winter season these past two seasons in the Virgin Islands, Tommy knows all of the ins and outs of the USVI and BVI and is excited to create a charter experience geared towards the wants and needs of his guests. The Virgin Islands are abundant with beautiful beaches, floating bars, brilliant hikes, and incredible snorkel spots that Tommy and Janey cannot wait to take you to.

Janey grew up in sunny Cape Town, South Africa, in a large family environment, which hosted family gatherings almost every weekend. Janey’s passion for food began at a very young age, where she spent many evenings watching and helping her mom cook dinner for the family. Her attention to detail and flair for experimenting with new flavors and flavor combinations, drove her to be the creative chef she is today. After completing a diploma in fashion design, Janey decided to explore new options abroad and went on to work as a chef/hostess on private charter boats in Croatia in the Mediterranean. It was at this time that Janey realized her absolute love for sailing, paired with professional cooking and entertaining, and therefore went on to pursue her career in the Caribbean.

Tommy and Janey’s relaxed and easy way of organizing activities, and ensuring the week is run smoothly will leave you feeling refreshed and satisfied at the end of the charter. They compliment each other in a way that is comforting and welcoming. They make for a truly amazing crew that will guarantee an unforgettable experience.

Our family sailed on the Marianne with Captain Mark and Heather. It was a truly wonderful experience. Mark and Heather took care of our every need and were super personable and fun to be around. Heather’s meals were delicious and beautifully presented and Mark kept us busy with interesting stops and lots of fun snorkeling adventures, water activities and island stops. The boat was comfortable and spacious with lots of room outdoors to relax while we were under sail. The whole experience was above and beyond our expectations. We hope to be able to do it again in the future!
