Crew Profile

Terry has been messing around on boats since he was a child. He started sailing dinghies and then moved onto larger boats. Despite being a qualified electrician he always yearned to turn his hobby into a career, and following his first trans Atlantic crossing with friends, he decided to do just that.
He is a commercially endorsed MCA Yachtmaster (both sail and power). He has also been both helm and launching authority for his local branch of Ireland's volunteer lifeboat service.
His other great passion is diving and he looks forward to showing the delights that the Caribbean has to offer to The Big Dog's guests. Diving is included for certified divers only. For non certified divers, the crew can arrange a rendezvous with one of the local dive companies . For those guests who do not wish to dive, Terry and Ruth are really happy to bring their guests snorkelling and show them the underwater world from the surface!

Ruth also sailed from a very young age, and worked as a teacher before joining Terry for a career in sailing. She has always enjoyed cooking and has taken cookery courses in places such as Ashburton Chef’s Academy in Devon, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland. She cooks a diverse range of meals, and particularly loves using local fresh produce whenever possible. She is more than happy to accommodate any special dietary requests.

Together Ruth and Terry have been running boats- both charter and private- for 14 years. They have sailed across the Atlantic together 4 times, worked in the Bahamas, many of the Caribbean Islands, the Mediterranean and around the Irish coast. They arrived in the British Virgin Islands 8 years ago and knew almost immediately that this was where they would make their home.

They are a very welcoming couple who work as a team in all aspects of the running of the boat. It is very important to them that each guest that they welcome on board The Big Dog enjoys every moment of their stay and has a holiday to remember forever.

Casual Kosher diet and some specialty diets can easily be accommodated, please inquire.
