This is Bob and Debbie aboard the sailing vessel Fidelity. We hope to be seeing you soon on one of our exclusive charters here in the beautiful Caribbean. Captain Bob has been boating for over 30 years beginning on Lake Chiemsee in Germany, owning and sailing three boats, chartering in the Virgins to thousands of blue water miles.
Bob holds a USCG 100 ton Master with a sailing endorsement as well as several ASA sailing certificates. From the first time he read about Robin Graham’s historic circumnavigation he was hooked. Now after decades of sailing Bob wants to share his passion and experience of sailing with others.
Debbie has shared 30 years of boating excitement and experience with Bob. Deb grew up in Southern California where she practically lived on the beach. This is where she developed a love for the sea and all things aquatic. She is an excellent chef and delights in serving others. Her passion for the sailing is only equaled by her desire to see her guest’s satisfaction.
Bob and Deb both had professional careers prior to signing on to Fidelity. Bob was an engineer and corporate executive in the automotive and semi conductor industry. Deb has over 30 years in the mortgage business having worked as an executive in the banking industry culminated by owning her own mortgage company.
Their love of the ocean, passion for sailing, and desire to live the dream resulted in throwing off the dock lines in 2006. They boarded their Westsail 32 in Seattle and set sail. Two years and 10000 sea miles found them in Florida ready to share the dream.

FIDELITY GUESTS COMMENTS
Absolutely fantastic time on our charter
Laurie and I had an absolutely fantastic time on our charter. While we learned a great deal, we laughed and joked the entire week and really connected with Bob and Debbie. The yacht can be a small place when you spend a week with another couple, yet we got along extremely well. We took three sailing courses over the week and learned a great deal. Bob was open to answer any question we had and he can be a great resource to you in expanding your sailing knowledge. Debbie did a great job on the food preparation and we enjoyed hearing her perspective on cruising and passage making. It was a great vacation and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Bob and Debbie are extremely flexible in making the charter what you want it to be, including the itinerary, how much you sail and what activities you do. We had chartered before and this was not the case in our earlier charter. In short, both Bob and Debbie did everything that they could to enhance our vacation. Laurie and David
We just got back after our 9 day charter with Bob and Debbie on Fidelity. Wow, what great time with great people! The trip was just what you said it would be and I want to thank you for that, truly from all of us. From talking to you on the phone you were right on the money. The flight to St Thomas, the taxi ride to Red Hook and of course the boat. All just the way you explained it.
Debbie’s cooking, as you know is over the top. I ate too much!
Thanks again for your help with the planning. Always great to speak with you on the phone. I respect your position and your time you spent with me. You are a great broker. Please pass this along to Bob and Debbie, and tell the owners their boat is in great hands.
Once again great trip. It was a once in a lifetime!
Thanks again my friend,

Thanks for a wonderful introduction to sailing, for me, and a special holiday for us both. We had so much fun! – the food was “over the top” good. Debbie I don’t know haw you produce those gourmet meals in a little boat galley. You were both so gracious and helpful with everything we wanted to do. Keep playing that gittar, Bob! —
Wonderful, just what a sailing vacation should be. Thanks. —

Thank you so much for such an amazing trip. Thanks for your understanding and flexibility with all of our quirks. We all learned so much along the way and can’t wait to take a sailboat out all by ourselves in the San Juan’s. Thank you for the amazing food and warm hospitality. I have my work cut out for me trying to meet Debbie’s bar in the kitchen. Good luck on all your future adventures and thank you for sharing your past experiences with us. It was fun to hear what you have been through on a boat.
Thanks for everything.
Kirsten, Jason, Isaac and Aaron Taylor and Pika too.
Debbie and Bob,
Thank you for teaching me how to drive the dingy. I had a great time.

The Time of Our Lives
We have had the time of our life. The sailing lessons were great and we have learned so much. Bob you are a very good teacher and Debbie you are an excellent cook. Watching the two of you working together as a team was amazing and it gives us hope that we can do it too.

Many thanks for a truly wonderful trip and for introducing sailing to David and the kids. We really enjoyed it. I’ve been waiting for so long to do this trip and couldn’t be happier that it was with you two. Here’s to good friends, good times, and good wind! And of course the good music. Thanks for the concert in the Tobago Keys.

Great Weather & Great Sailing
Great weather and great sailing in the BVI’s for December. Learned a lot from Bob (the computer) while completing ASA-104 Bareboat Chartering. Now I’m certified!!! Be sure to learn from Bob the “Fidelity rolling hitch” and the most important “BA-MOB” maneuver. My wife and I enjoyed every minute and will be sure to return. I now weight several pounds more due to Debbie’s great gourmet cooking.
Until the next sail

The culinary detail was mind-blowing
I had a wonderful time on Fidelity and I cannot thank you enough. Debbie, your food was absolutely exquisite and the attention to culinary detail was mind-blowing. Your graciousness in keeping me happy with food and beverage was wonderful. Bob, thank you so much for your flexibility around routing and schedule and your gracious warmth and song-artistry.
I can’t tell you both how much I enjoyed the trip and how much it opened up for me around fall-winter sailing as a new concept in life!
Thank you and I too hope we can stay in touch.
Best wishes to you both for the upcoming shows.
What An Awesome Way to Spend a Week
What an awesome way to spend a week with my family. You guys go above and beyond the call of duty to serve us. I hope that our paths cross again. Always remember that we are family through Christ. If we can ever be of service to you or your family please don’t hesitate to ask. Merry Christmas and God Bless
Thanks for the great weather , great food, and great sailing! You do a great job here on Fidelity. Hope to sail with you in the future. I learned a great deal from you. God Speed.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip. I will remember this time with my family and the two of you forever! This is truly the best vacation I have ever had. The food was AMAZING! The sailing was wonderful! But the company was by far the best part of the trip! Can’t wait to do it again! Chase is a lucky guy to have such great parents. God Bless!
Abby The “Dingy Captain”
The sweetest times are those spent with my family enjoying all the blessing of life. Thanks Bob And Debbie for making this week so special! What a great team you make together. Here’s to many more wonderful days of sailing! Take care of each other and of Chase. He must be so proud of you. Many Thanks and God Bless.
We Could Not of Asked for a Better Crew
We could not have asked for a better crew, boat, or time. The weather was great the seas swelled, we had the opportunity to see the BVI’s in style aboard Fidelity! Great entertainment from Bob on the guitar, fantastic food from Deb. It’s amazing what she can do in that galley while under way! Great stories from their lives and their travels from the West Coast ass well! May Fair Seas and good wind always be with you both.
