Crew Profile

<B>CURRENT CREW THROUGH AUGUST 15, 2017:</B>
CAPTAIN GARY:
Captain Gary was born and raised in Northern California on the Russian river, eventually finding his love of the sea. He migrated to the Outer Banks NC in 2003 and found Kite boarding. It was a rapid progression turning into an intense passion and lifestyle, instructing, traveling, and competing all over the world. In 2004 sailing came into play and never left.

He eventually bought a 30’ Mono hull and started cruising. The Bahamas, Caribbean, and eastern seaboard quickly became the standard route. Yet again passion became a profession. He holds a 100 ton USCG master license, STCW-95, PADI advanced open water, and is an ASA instructor for 101, 103, 104, 105, and 114 courses. He is still an avid kite surfer, and instructor, enjoys surfing, spearfishing, fishing, diving and just about anything to do with the sea.

For the past 5 years he has been instructing sailing, captaining term charters, running large private yachts, running large capacity day cats and delivering yachts all over. It has earned him over 30k sea miles.

Gary found his culinary passion at a very young age. His first job in High School was at a barbecue restaurant. The hospitality industry has never been out of his life for very long. He has been a server, cook, bar tender, and manager at establishments from NC to St John and many points in between. He loves to catch, prepare, and share the culinary gifts from the sea as much as possible, especially sushi.
Captain Gary’s passion for sailing, love of the sea, and extensive experience make him a perfect fit for your charter experience.


CHEF DANA:
Chef and first mate Dana Stehr was born in Birmingham, Alabama. Growing up in a family of chefs, her passion for cooking naturally developed at a very young age as she learned to cook with fresh ingredients from her mother's garden. She now seeks to incorporate local ingredients and flavors in her dishes while always aspiring to create something new for guests to enjoy. Summers spent at the Gulf in Alabama led to her appreciation of the sea, but her interest in sailing was not discovered until she moved to St. Thomas in 2015. Since then, Dana has worked as a first mate and ever strives to learn more about what the ocean has to offer. Her hobbies include yoga, hiking, camping with friends, and traveling as much as possible. Dana's love for food continues to grow as she currently pursues a post-graduate degree in Food and Nutrition.

<B>AFTER AUGUST 15, 2017:</B>
Captain Keith and Annette, “AJ”, not only have a love of sailing, diving, and entertaining but also enjoy sharing these experiences with others. They made a commitment 5 years ago to create a strategy to exit their land based life and find a way to live their life on the water and find an opportunity to enrich others’ lives by sharing this wonderful adventure. Becoming the crew on Pegasus is the realization of this dream!!! They are excited to share with guests the adventure of sailing the beautiful waters of the Virgin Islands, exploring the underwater world, hiking and exploring, as well as unparalleled culinary experiences. Come join us for an adventure of a lifetime we can’t wait to share it with you!!!

<B>CAPTAIN KEITH</B> was bit by the sailing bug as a teenager; he first learned to sail Sunfish and Hobie Cats with friends on Big Stone Lake in South Dakota of all places! He grew up fishing, water skiing and boating on the lakes in SD and MN. Keith is an accomplished freshwater and saltwater angler and certified PADI SCUBA diver.

Later, he joined friends on charter in the BVI and discovered his passion for sailing keel boats and catamarans. In 2002, he put a picture of a 43’ Jeanneau Decks Salon on his refrigerator – 18 months later, he bought “Daddy’s Girl” – a sister ship of the one depicted on his fridge! Shortly after, he delivered “DG” to Antigua and then earned his Captain’s license and began delivering yachts coastwise, as well as to and from the Caribbean and along the seaboard. Keith has had the pleasure of skippering charters in the Chesapeake Bay and the Caribbean. Keith enjoys helping others discover their own “sailor within” and hone their skills.

Keith also has a background in the hospitality industry and loves to entertain. Whether manning the grill or the bar, Keith takes great pride in delivering an exceptional experience to guests. He is an accomplished amateur “Sous Chef” and Mixologist, and oenophile. He finds joy in serving and helping others.

<B>CHEF AJ:</B> Having grown up on the coast of North Carolina, AJ spent her youth on and in the waters of the Atlantic coastal area. She began her diving adventures at the age of 14 and became a PADI dive instructor at the age of 22. Sharing the underwater world with seasoned divers, new divers, and students is a lifelong passion. In addition to her years of diving she has also crewed on offshore fishing charters and is quite an accomplished angler!!

Sailing and boating was major part of her life while growing up. She spent her early boating years on pleasure boats and crewing on deliveries with her Uncle up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Most recently she has become an extremely competent sailor while crewing on deliveries from Annapolis to St. Martin, the BVI’s to Bonaire, and Annapolis to Charleston, SC. Her calm demeanor and “can do” spirit assures that all on board feel safe and are able to enjoy the experience.

AJ spent her college years working her way through school in the restaurant industry. This ignited a passion in her for food preparation, exploration and presentation!! She was also involved in the opening of a very successful restaurant in Charlotte, NC where she not only participated in menu selections and cocktail creations but also in catering for private events. This experience along with her time spent in the boating community will insure you experience a fabulous culinary experience in addition to an incredible sailing adventure!!
