Don has been on the water since he was 13 years old. He grew up in Guyana, which is referred to as ‘the land of many waters’. The first boat he captained was a 40 ft monohull at age 15 and since then his love for working on boats has only grown deeper. His vast experience includes all sizes of sailboats, as well as large power boats. A long time resident of Tortola, Don spends his shoreside time with his beautiful wife and daughter.
He has been sailing the BVI for the last 5 years and looks forward to sharing in the many experiences you have waiting for you aboard the Rhapsody!
Growing up in Virginia Beach, VA, Heather has spent most of her life in and around the water. Her love for cooking developed alongside of her desire to be close to the sea. While earning her BFA in Sculpture, she trained to become a sushi chef and worked for 4 years with a Japanese culinary artist. Here she developed an amounting passion for creating delicious food that was also visually compelling.
For the last few years Heather has split her time working on sailing yachts in the Caribbean and Mediterranean while also working in New York City for a select private dining company.
She looks forward to sharing her menu with you as she feels it balances an international perspective with the familiarity of home.
Guests aboard Rhapsody for New Years week, 2012/2013
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the use of your boat and wonderful crew-- the trip exceeded our expectations!
Don treated the boat very much like his own (if not better!). He was attentive, always focused on safety and never once took a sip of alcohol, although we offered. He had a depth of local knowledge and contacts which served us well throughout the trip, especially on New Years Eve.
Heather was equally wonderful. She prepared delightfully healthy and tasty food and her sushi night was a real "hit". She too was attentive and provided great company throughout the week.
Together Don and Heather are a great team and a true Rhapsody-asset.
On behalf of my entire family, I wish you both a happy and healthy 2013.
