YACHT CREW

Captain: Jim Grant & Jerry Blair

Jim, your Winter Season captain (November, 2018, through February, 2019), is a Canadian who grew up sailing on Lake Ontario. His family has always owned boats and Jim began his sailing instruction while attending summer camp. As a young adult Jim moved to Virginia, were he became bare boat certified and began chartering. In his corporate life Jim was a stockbroker. He was televised on Charlottesville, Virginia’s NBC 29 nightly news for seven years sharing his market commentary with viewers. While working as a stockbroker, Jim found time to become a delivery captain for a Lagoon catamaran dealership, and began transiting the East Coast of North America. There he found his love for the open ocean. He obtained his United States Coast Guard Masters License, and later obtained a MCA 200-ton Offshore Certificate. Jim is also a certified PADI Dive Master, and looks forward to taking you diving. In addition Jim enjoys windsurfing, kite surfing, and skiing.

Chef / First mate: Amanda Grant

Amanda, your Winter Season chef (November, 2018, through February, 2019), is from Virginia. She grew up as a competitive swimmer and spent time backpacking in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Later, she discovered triathlons, and spent many hours training and competing. Jim introduced her to sailing, and life was never the same. She began sailing the Chesapeake every weekend, and accompanying Jim on some of his deliveries. Amanda’s career as an engineer was demanding and gratifying, but soon she began dreaming of warm waters. During her years sailing the Caribbean, she developed a love for cooking and exploring local cuisine. To prepare for life as a charter chef, Amanda attended a mega-yacht cooking school in Fort Lauderdale, where she honed her skills. She looks forward to serving you beautifully presented delicious meals. In addition, Amanda is a certified PADI Dive Master, and a kayak instructor. Amanda’s other interests include windsurfing, kite surfing, and skiing.

Captain Spring & Summer Season: Jerry Blair / Summer 2018

Captain Jerry has been sailing since he was 2 years old and has sailed extensively throughout the Northeast USA, and Caribbean and has undertaken several Trans-Atlantic crossings. He holds a 100 ton USCG Masters license and is also a NAUI Scuba Instructor and PADI Divemaster, as well as a US Sailing Instructor.

One of Jerry’s great loves is teaching and as an avid water sports enthusiast he enjoys sharing all his varied knowledge with friends and guests. Jerry teaches lots of SCUBA courses from first time resort courses to full or advanced diving certifications.

After residing in the Caribbean Islands for 13 years, Jerry is a good source of local knowledge and history which ensures every trip is unique, fun and interesting. He is gregarious and loves meeting people.

Chef / Mate Spring & Summer Season 2018: Dawn Mottram

Dawn Mottram is British, coming from North Wales originally. She grew up on the coast and living by the sea she spent many happy hours with her family on boats. She passed her love for sailing onto her two children, who have taken to the sport as well. Dawn has always enjoyed cooking for her family, friends and charitable events. She is a trained RGN nurse, specializing in paediatrics, community, and ophthalmic nursing, and has most recently worked as a medical equipment consultant.

Her career of helping people as a nurse inspired her to start fundraising for causes she believed in. As the years went on, the scale of her fundraising and the distances she went to, grew. Dawn’s passion for the outdoors has led her on cycling tours through Vietnam, hikes up the three highest mountains peaks of Great Britain, and numerous sailing events such as Cowes Week. She has taken part in many long distance offshore sailing races, most notably the Fastnet Race. Her largest fundraiser generated £100,000 for Sail4Cancer. She was involved in forming the first "all female" team to compete in the Non-Stop Around Britain and Ireland Race in 2006. One of her many duties onboard was as bowman and foredeck crew but she was also the cook. Her experiences of cooking on racing boats led Dawn to produce the Swell Food recipe book, for sailing enthusiasts. All proceeds were donated to Sail4Cancer, enabling children suffering from the affects of cancer to have sailing opportunities.

YACHT TESTIMONIALS

May, 2018, charter guests aboard catamaran COPPER PENNY with Jerry and Dawn wrote:

To say we had an amazing time and loved everything is an understatement.
Jerry & Dawn were wonderful hosts and did everything we asked for and more. We had an idea of things we wanted to see but their knowledge of the area was a huge plus to help us craft the most enjoyable itinerary.
Even though the BVI is still recovering from the awful hurricanes of last year we thoroughly enjoyed the weather & water activities, Scuba diving & seeing some really cool stuff. We all felt comfortable with Jerry's expertise to provide fun experiences but more importantly, safe ones. 
Dawn's meals & Jerry's cocktails were highlights of the trip. We enjoyed variety the menu offered. Meeting our dietary special needs isn’t easy for anyone, Dawn took it in her stride and never made us feel like it was a bother. 
Copper Penny was a beautiful vessel with many comforts of home. We all enjoyed our rooms, the dining areas & especially the bridge up top. It was great fun to sit up there enjoying the quiet of the sail while reading or listening to Jerry fill us in on areas we saw or watching the crew at work getting the sails in place and back again.
We would highly recommend the team of Dawn & Jerry aboard Copper Penny to anyone looking for a bucket list vacation.

Early March guests aboard catamaran COPPER PENNY with Jim & Amanda Grant wrote:

Jim and Amanda were awesome. They are great people and were superb hosts. We found them to be very knowledgeable and they were always willing to answer our questions and provide information about what we were experiencing. They also struck a perfect balance of attentiveness without being overbearing.
We were waiting for there to be at least one so-so meal but it never came. Our only complaint (if it could be a complaint) was that the portions were too big for us to 
finish! Delicious.
That was an amazing and memorable trip. We would highly recommend Jim and Amanda and the Copper Penny for anyone looking for a fun and relaxing adventure.

This was our second charter with Jim and Amanda and it was fabulous. Words cannot describe how perfect our trip was. The two make you feel at home and are there for your every need. Jim took us on some of best adventures that anyone could dream of and Amanda could not spoil us enough with her food and drinks. When my husband and I, kids and friends, look back on these trips, we cannot help but smile and reminisce about the great times we had. Jim and Amanda have made each trip special; we were even blessed to have Captain Jim officiate our 25th wedding vow renewals on Anguilla. They are not only a captain and first mate to us, they are good friends. I guess to sum it all up - We are booking another trip with these two...that should tell you how awesome it was and how awesome they are!

• Was the crew friendly & accommodating?
Exceeded all expectations. Jim and Amanda were professional, friendly and attentive to all passengers needs. They even took us on some special side trips that added immensely to the overall experience.
• Was the yacht comfortable & clean?
COPPER PENNY was pristine and well-maintained throughout. The large flybridge greatly expanded living area.
• Was the food good & well presented?
This is the area that blew us away the most as Amanda delighted us at every meal with gourmet fare presented beautifully.  This was truly over-the-top quality.
• Do you feel your vacation lived up to the expectations set by your Broker?
Exceeded all expectations!
• Additional Comments on your charter. 
I would not hesitate a moment in recommending COPPER PENNY and Jim and Amanda.

Late January, 2017, guests aboard COPPER PENNY said:

How did you find your crew?
Jim & Amanda Grant were they friendly, knowledgeable, attentive and accommodating?From the very first phone conversation to the last hug on the dock, Jim was friendly, warm and very engaging!!! He was extremely entertaining and seemed to have an intuitive gift for what was needed at the time… he's a great conversationalist who can discuss a broad range of subjects. I immediately felt like he was my new friend. Amanda is absolutely precious and so accommodating, helping Jim in any capacity!!! If she's not in the kitchen preparing the next scrumptious meal, she's assisting Jim in whatever he needs regarding the boat. She is "a jewel!!!!" We all fell in love with her…
Was Copper Penny comfortable, clean and well ventilated? 
What was your favorite aspect of the yacht?Copper Penny was impeccable!!!! Jim and Amanda take pride in keeping her clean!!! I literally walked up the stairs one night around 9:00 after forgetting something and found Amanda on her hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor!!! What a testimony to an extremely strong work ethic!!! It's hard to say what the favorite aspect was but I will say as a group we seemed to gravitate to the fly bridge with its gorgeous views and wonderful breezes. Just fun hanging out with Captain Jim too!!!
Was the food enjoyable and well presented? 
Did the chef customize the menu to your preferences?The food was simply amazing!!! Not only was it scrumptious but the presentation was most impressive!!! We basically didn't have limitations on our preference sheet and we're open to trying new dishes. Amanda even baked us a chocolate cake with each of our Anniversary years written on top… such a thoughtful way to end the celebratory trip. The impressive thing is she was always in a mode of preparation for our next meal and I would observe her cooking through even (what we considered) rough waters… she never missed a beat!! 
Did you enjoy the itinerary and the area you sailed?
We found each day unique and interesting !!! Jim planned just the right mixture of beach walking, bar hopping, snorkeling, hiking, shopping, floating, skiing, kayaking, and simply vegging, drinking adult beverages, listening to our favorite tunes, enjoying conversation and observing a part of God's creation we had never experienced with our lifelong friends and our new friends, Jim and Amanda!!

Additional Comments:

We are all six interested in a repeat trip together with Jim and Amanda in the next three years. Stanley and I are in the process now of trying to organize another group for next January, hopefully the same week or at least around the same time. This trip would be a little different in that it could be some of our customers/friends. The trip last week was our very best friends with whom we've traveled for years. The upcoming trip would be with folks we have never traveled with so that's a little caveat of sorts in my mind in planning….The only potential change we would make is to eliminate the first night stay in St Thomas. With earliest possible flights out of Jackson and connecting flights into St. Thomas it may be impossible. However, the money we spent in St. Thomas could go to an extra night on the boat if we could make it happen.



Easter Week, 2016, guests aboard COPPER PENNY said:

The food: Beyond expectations. We can no longer fit into our clothes.
Bryan and Ava could not have been more accommodating and welcoming!!
All were so pleased with all aspects of the trip that they tried to figure out a way to bring Bryan and Ava home with us!!!
Well worth the investment :-)

March 15

Kent and I had a wonderful time during our week with you. Our memories and adventures will last for many years to come! The food was beyond 5-star Ginny….truly impressed! You both took such good care of us and made sure our every need was met. We had such a good time snorkeling, sailing, paddleboarding and just hanging out!

Julie and Kent Beers, TEXAS

A vacation of a lifetime  - Gord, excellent captain, gracious host, very knowledgeable tour guide, and entertainer. Ginny, extraordinary chef with every meal ***** the taste, presentation and variety for 7 days was so perfect. The stories of their travels and of the BVI were fascinating. Both Gord and Ginny went out of their way to provide sodas, drinks, beers and food choices we indicated. We both enjoyed the snorkeling immensely – the equipment fit perfectly and the sites we visited were great. We loved the tour of Virgin Gorda and the Baths – the Pirate entertainment – Saba Rock Tarpon feeding – sailing around the islands and all the local flavor of the Soggy Dollar and Foxys. I really enjoyed the hike from the Bitter End. Kenny was fascinated to learn about sailing and the boat equipment. I must repeat – “A Vacation Experience of a Lifetime!”

Kenny and Dianne, MONTANA
 
How can we top this! It’s been such a great trip with great people. Good times! Fantastic food! Such a memory of a lifetime! The mix of activities: snorkeling, hiking, shopping, visiting local bars. Gord and Ginny’s individual attention to the interests of our party made it a vacation tailored just for us! A great Captain, a fantastic Chef! Perfect people to place your vacation and leave all the details to them. Thanks Gord and Ginny for being the best!

Can't say enough good things about Gord and Ginny. They were professional, fun to talk to, skilled in their own roles, and had a good sense of when to engage and when to leave us to ourselves. They were very safety oriented and knowledgeable about the whole sailing adventure. Gord and Ginny were great with wonderful experience and stories they could share about their travels around the world. They both focused on making the trip enjoyable for us. They made the trip what it was. Awesome. The food was outstanding. Ginny is not just a cook and first mate; she is a true CHEF! The meal presentations were beautiful, the food choices were varied, fresh and interesting. Outstanding cuisine! The sailing vacation was everything we had hoped for and more. We had a fantastic time and would recommend this trip to others.

It was very reassuring to receive an email from Ginny prior to departure. She took care of our last minute dietary requests and made us feel that everything was in order for our trip. Ginny and Gord are your most valuable asset in this biz. Highly skilled and attentive to the needs and wishes of guests, we cannot imagine that any charter at any price could match the top drawer service and hospitality they provide. We are referring friends at every opportunity. Gord & Ginny planned our itinerary in a way that met the desires of our group. Because of their superior sailing skills, we enjoyed 3 weeks’ worth of fun and sights in only 1 week. Ginny prepared wonderful meals and snacks, accommodating difficult special dietary requests. The meals magically appeared at the perfect time, just as we were all ready to eat. Best of all the food was both delicious and healthy. Ginny and Gord made this an unforgettable trip of a lifetime for us - our best vacation ever! Ginny and Gord are a delightful and amazing couple. We treasure our special time together and new friendship. This pair is truly your best asset in this business!!! We are referring our friends at every opportunity, so long as Ginny and Gord are crew.

 Everything was exceptional. Captain Gord and Ginny were amazing guides. They are seasoned Sailors and Gord's expertise with handling the catamaran, his keen eye for weather variations, his expertise on the water, and his diligence in caring for his passengers is exemplary! Ginny's ability to entertain and feed the guests is second to none. She is truly a gifted Chef in First Mate's clothing! Ginny's skills as a Chef are exemplary. She was able to maintain her duties as a First Mate as well as feed the people on board with excellent meal plans and presentation! It is because of Captain Gord and Chef Ginny that we will be back for sure! Their friendliness, skills, attention to detail, and overall love of the BVI made this the most memorable vacation for us!

Best crew out of 4 previous cruises. Extremely personable friendly professional. Like talking with a friend. Flexible and knowledgeable as adverse sea conditions required changes. Ginny is a gourmet chef extraordinaire, an amazing cook. As a cook myself I got some great inspiration for my future meals. She needs to publish a cook book

Five Star accommodations are jealous of "The Ginny & Gord Experience". My husband and I had the time of our lives sailing with Ginny & Gord! They are gracious, fun and delightful in every way. We quickly became comfortable with the hospitality and fun atmosphere created by our hosts. Our every wish was scheduled for us as we enjoyed breakfast each morning. Our days were filled with diving, snorkeling, land tours, entertainment and even quiet time to relax under the stars. Their sailing skills are expert and the food was fabulous. Honestly I cannot understand how 2 people could do so much. The level of hospitality and service they provided could not be duplicated by a much larger crew.

The BEST crew ever - we have comparisons and have sailed with others. Gord and Ginny were by far the most professional, capable, attentive, and wonderful crew we have ever had the pleasure to know and to sail with. The food was beyond great! Gord’s skills are beyond anything. Their relationship with each other and us was perfect. I can’t say enough great and excellent things about them. I would never want to be with another crew! 

Gary Forster

We had the time of our life sailing with Ginny & Gord! They are expert sailors and navigators. They are also extremely sweet and fun people, as well as very patient with difficult guests. We always had a great time, and we always slept well knowing Gord and Ginny had all of the sailing and navigation under control. Ginny is an amazing and creative cook. She prepares delicious meals with fresh and local ingredients. The crew are both excellent tour guides, and they took us to all of the best spots in the British Virgin Islands.
