Holly and Ian have been sailing for over 40-years.  Early in life with our parents on Penobscot Bay and Moosehead Lake.  Later we found each other, raised two amazing children, and kept sailing the entire time... the boats growing with us as our family grew.  Today we sail our Fountaine Pajot Helia 44 Whiffle between the Caribbean and Maine.  We look forward to sharing the adventures with you!

Our Story

Sailing has been a part of our lives since a young age.  Holly racing a little S2 on China Lake with her dad, regularly "winning" last place, probably at about the same time Ian was drifting around Camden Harbor in a bulls eye sloop with his father and brothers, trying to figure out a way back to the mooring. 


We met and got married.  Continued sailing.  Started a family.  Continued sailing.  Watched our kids grow.  Continued sailing.  And are blessed to have created incredible memories on the Coast of Maine and in the Caribbean.  Even better is that our adult kids love being on the water just as much as we do.

Years ago, we dreamed of sharing our love of Maine and the BVI... by starting a sailing charter business.  Today that has become our reality aboard Whiffle, our Fountaine Pajot Helia 44.  During the winter months, through our management partner Conch Charters, you can enjoy crewed or bareboat charters leaving from Tortola.  And during the summer months, you can join us aboard our catamaran for a crewed day sail on the Coast of Maine, discover the beauty of Penobscot Bay, and learn why both Maine and the Caribbean are such special places for us.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
