Crew

Captain and Crew of Blue Moon, a 56 ft Lagoon Caribbean Yacht Charter

Crew Profile

Crew Profiles:
Sam and Rose are a fun, energetic couple with a shared lifelong love of sailing. They bring their shared skills and experience on the water and in the galley together to create an unforgettable vacation for their guests.

Captain Sam grew up in the middle of Cairo, Egypt. He learned to sail and windsurf on Marthas Vineyard during summers at his mothers childhood home there, and learned to dive in the Red Sea at the age of 14. After working for several years as an electrical engineer, Sam decided to leave the corporate world. He bought his first big boat, a 51 ft monohull, in 2007. He immediately sailed from New England to the Grenadines, and spent the next several years running charters everywhere from Bequia to Anguilla, sailing back north every hurricane season.

Sam has lived in and explored the Virgin Islands since 2010, working as a sailing instructor and charter captain. Additionally, Sam is a licensed PADI scuba instructor, and loves introducingeven the greenest beginners to diving!

Chef and First Mate Rose cant imagine a life away from the ocean. Hailing from Boston, MA, she grew up down the street from the harbor, and spent many happy summer days tide pooling and snorkeling in the murky waters of Cape Cod. She took her first free sailing lesson at the age of 8, quickly taking to the sport and returning to the same community sailing center every summer. She started teaching there at 14, and over the next 10 years went on to hold a multitude of positions, from environmental educator to regatta and event management to creating adaptive programming for the disabled. While looking for a big kid teaching job in the fall of 2011, a dear friend convinced her to drop everything and help deliver a boat from Annapolis to St. Thomas. Upon arrival, Rose decided that she liked big sailboats, warm clear water, and Sam. The choice to stay was easy.

Sam and Rose have worked together in the Virgin Islands for the last four years, first managing and teaching at a sailing school, then working as a captain and chef team since 2014. They quickly made their mark in the charter scene, becoming one of the busiest and most popular crews in the VI by the end of their first season. Rose applies her natural perfectionism to creating a healthy, fresh menu suited to your exact needs and desires, and provides a culinary experience that looks beautiful, tastes delicious, and makes you feel good! Sam has a knack for finding the best anchoring spot, and never says no to one more run on the tube! They are committed to creating your ideal vacation, whether that means scuba and hiking all day, sitting in the floating island with a cocktail, enjoying unplugged time with family, or dancing all night at the bar or on the bow!

BLUE MOON L56 GUESTS COMMENTS

April 2018
Sam and Rosemary were the best. I don t know how anyone could have done better.
They were friendly, helpful gracious hosts. At one point when I needed to return to my cabin I actually started looking for my room key–I thought I was on a cruise ship !! Nothing was a problem for them–whatever we wanted they responded to with enthusiasm. We loved how Sam and Rosemary worked together to make our week such a great experience
Rosemary is such a great chef and her meals were perfection! The food was varied, delicious and artfully presented. She s a mean bartender also !!
We had a wonderful time!
Our charter met our expectations. We had a wonderful time!
Sam & Rose were excellent hosts! Sam was an extremely knowledgeable Capt. who procured the best anchoring spots at all of our destinations!
Rose is an OUTSTANDING chef, first mate and hostess! We are still raving about the food! Roses meals were healthy, delicious and creative! Simply fabulous!!!
Blue Moon was clean and well maintained. We were in the Master State room which was roomy and very comfortable.
This was our first BVI charter. We enjoyed the pace. Sams & Roses itinerary took us to all the popular destinations. Going forward on our next charter we can plan our itinerary so it suits the destinations we liked the best. We enjoyed Rose and Sam and found them easy to be around. Roses food was amazing and Sams detailed knowledge of the BVIs is extensive. He goes the extra mile to get you in the preferred anchorage locations.
Sam did his best to make sure (2) passengers on our trip where comfortable, as they were worried about too much boat movement and getting sea sick. He went out of his way to find good anchoring positions especially for night time.
