Crew Profile

Captain: Terry Ross

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 reActions guests. Diving is included for certified divers only. For uncertified 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, young and not so young, snorkelling.

Chef: Ruth Ross

Ruth formerly 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 Rick Steins Seafood School in Padstow, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland amongst others. 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.

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

Testimonials




JUNE 2015

The entire yacht was gleaming, welcoming, and set a great tone. The cabins and beds were slightly larger than expected. The bathrooms were well designed and had all needed equipment. Terry & Ruth did a phenomenal job keeping everything tidy and clean. Towels were changed out during the week and everything was comfortable.

There was more than enough space for all six of us to spread out and relax. The front netting was a fantastic place from which to enjoy the boat under sail. The yacht had a great mix of lounging space with each of us being able to sun or shade at will.

I was never once nervous with Terry at the helm. He was patient and explained all questions thoroughly. He was incredible when interacting with the kids! It is very apparent Terry knows the area well. He created a good mix of secluded coves and those with more activity. The dives were well thought out, as well as the snorkeling experiences.

Ruth is a treasure! How anyone prepares five star meals in a galley that small is beyond me! She went above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoyed every meal. The desserts were also INCREDIBLE!!
Ruth and Terry both did a great job with the two teenagers on board. The absolute best endorsement I can share is that the sixteen year old (very social and at first not thrilled with being away from friends) didn’t want to go home!!

Without a doubt we hope to do it again in the next few years but only with Terry & Ruth!

JANUARY 2015

I just wanted tosend you a note and offer to have it or any part of it included in any reviewsthat you provide from customers using ReAction. Of course, the same goes forany use that Terry and Ruth Ross want to do with these comments.

 The basics were allthere. Great weather. Great scenery. Great shipmates.. our family. It was allmade fabulous by the crew of ReAction. There are many things to compliment theteam of Terry and Ruth Ross, but let’s start with they treated us like family.We love the water but we were pretty much novices when it came to being on aship for 7 days. Terry made sure we saw the great snorkeling and evenaccompanied us on many trips. We didn’t have a great deal of wind, but Terryworked hard to get me some sailing time and some coaching on my love of beingon the water.  Ruth and Terry worked with our family to help my wife Pattywho has memory problems to feel a part of the ship and to participate as muchas she wanted. They demonstrated some real love and caring for Patty that wewill always be thankful for.

 Now to theimportant stuff. The food and drink were tremendous. Great variety. Incredibletastes. Plenty of  portions. Not to mention the “mean” fruity rum drinksthat Ruth would make up every afternoon if you requested them. Terry and Ruthmade sure we saw the perfect combination of quiet ports and fun spots. Lots of fun in the water with our family doing paddle boarding; kayaking; andspeed tubing not to mention the family driving contest. Ruth and Terry evenproviding drinks and spring rolls in the ocean for our own floating bar.

 We have had a fewfamily vacations with our “kids”. Less so now that they have their own livesand families, but this trip we always be remembered as something special. Wewere a family again maybe for the last time. Terry and Ruth made it extraspecial for all of us.  

 Thanks

 Steve O...one very happy customer!

A very special mention to Terry and Ruth Ross who run a fantastic Catamaran, the ReAction, that is not new but looks and feels as if it had been launched yesterday. Terry and Ruth make every moment seem special and we would not hesitate to chose them for a next charter. Thank you for making our dream voyage come true.

Part of the fun was not knowing what to expect each day and then discovering each day was more beautiful than the last. You were both so welcoming and wonderful hosts. You were great with the boys and the week flew by. See you next year.

Because of your permanent smiles, perfection in every detail and kindness you made this trip much more than a great holiday for our family but a memory that will last through time.

Dear ReAction,

On behalf of the entire Glaser family, I wanted to relay the incredibly awesome experience that we shared aboard the ReAction this past week with Terry and Ruth Ross.

While this is the 2nd time that we chartered the ReAction, this was our first time that we experienced the incredible generosity , professionalism and shear delight that we enjoyed with Terry and Ruth. Not only were the meals completely gourmet, but the attention to detail.... on the boat, scuba diving, snorkeling, tubing and just sailing around, was second to none.

From cheerfully meeting us on the dock to hosting a birthday party for my sister, Terry and Ruth exceeded our expectations in EVERY WAY.

We look forward to another charter trip in the years ahead and after discussions with our family , we will charter whatever boat Terry and Ruth are working on !

Sincerely Bob and Dawn G

It is with great pleasure that I write this commendation for two very special people; the Captain Terry Ross and his First Mate, wife and our Chef, Ruth Ross….
Our boat was great, with large staterooms and baths, wifi, a wonderful outdoor dining table, all maintained in state of the art condition by Ruth and Terry……
Ruth took to heart everything that we said [in our preference sheet] so that we not only ate the healthy meals that we prefer but the cooking, creativity and effort to 100% please us was extraordinary. Ruth, your cooking was just delicious, abundant, fun and a very important element to our terrific vacation with you. Not only were the meals that you prepared just great but you did it effortlessly with a constant, genuine real smile that reflected the kind and caring and highly capable person that you are……
We were really honoured to get to know you as a superb professional, but more importantly as a special person, with an equally special husband, who we hope will take us up on our open offer, now, in 2 years or even 10 to visit us…….
We have chartered many times and have always had a lovely experience. We understand the “territory” and the challenges of many on board in a rather limited space. Both of you, though, are at a level of sophistication about your business and about life, that is as good as it gets. We appreciated the spirit you brought to our vacation, Terry’s very gentle firmness in insisting on certain matters of safety and the love that you have for each other which we could sense as you quietly sat together while Terry piloted our boat.

So from all of us to you, Ruth and Terry, with deepest gratitude for a very special 7 days together, and memories that we will carry with us always……….

Warmest,
W, R and Family, Colorado. 

“A wonderful destination, a great boat and the indescribable warmth and hospitality of Terry and Ruth made this a dream vacation come true. Ruth’s cooking alone is reason enough to cruise with you, while Terry was marvelous with the boys and the sailing instructions. You will thoroughly enjoy this boat with your own charter. Big, roomy, fast - we had it up to 14.5 knots one afternoon in a good upwind 28 knot breeze. And by the way, be sure to diet before boarding. Ruth will keep you stuffed with her impressive cooking skills!”
In addition to all of the physical attributes/comforts of the boat itself, the vacation would not have been complete without the expert instruction and services of Ruth and Terry. We relied upon their knowledge of the BVis to plan each day- where to sail next, what to do when we arrived, dining alternatives for the meals we ate on-shore, water activities (snorkeling, swimming, fishing, kayaking, etc) for our entire family and so much more. The boys thought wake-boarding in the Caribbean Sea was fantastic! Their ability to handle the boat was expert but more impressive was how they encouraged and worked with my 3 sons to help them develop a greater working knowledge of sailing. Frankly, I was a bit concerned on the front end about spending so much time on a boat with a couple we did not know. But within a moment of meeting Terry and Ruth I knew were in great hands- and indeed their warmth, service, humor, and genuine interest in my family made all of the difference to us. They are a class act and I can’t imagine spending a week sailing with a more enjoyable crew/couple!
