PRIORITIES Crew Profile
Your Crew for Sail Priorities
We enthusiastically welcome you aboard and invite you to share in our love of great sailing, great wine and, of course, the Caribbean Sea.
Captain/chef Richard Cassarino and First Mate Lisa Pratt, have more than 20 years’ combined sailing experience. We spent years trying to make room for sailing in our busy professional lives in Providence, Rhode Island. One New England winter too many convinced us to make our passion for sailing our priority.
Rich, a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, owned and operated Cassarino’s Ristorante in Providence’s “Little Italy” for 20 years. The restaurant is consistently rated the “Best Italian Restaurant in Providence.” He now brings his superior cooking and entertaining skills to the high seas. Each meal served aboard Priorities will be tailored to your tastes, from breakfast to scrumptious multi-course dinners.
Lisa, an accomplished florist and art/design degree holder, owned and operated a successful, high-volume flower shop in Providence, Floral Designs By LiRog. She has 20 years experience with event and party planning.
Reggie, Priorities’ mascot, has 56 years’ experience sailing (Dog Years). He is an adorable, unobtrusive and lovable golden retriever. We’re working on training him to fetch cocktails.
We are thrilled to join our passion for sailing with our business experience to move into a more personalized sector of the service industry. We are a relaxed, humorous couple who like to enjoy ourselves as much as you do. Welcome aboard.

Guests aboard Priorities in May, 2008
We just got home a few minutes ago and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had aboard PRIORITIES.
Rich and Lisa were terrific in looking after all our needs. The boat is beautiful and extremely well maintained with lots of toys, music, movies, games, etc.. Rich and Lisa balanced out our days with a lot of activities, great stops, interesting information and down time. Rich is an amazing cook and each meal was prepared with loving attention to every detail and to everyone’s individual preferences. They were always looking after us, which made the trip relaxing and fun-filled at the same time.
It truly was an amazing family vacation – one that we will treasure for many years to come.Ron, Marian and Family
