Guests from our favorite South American country!
With our background in running a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu academy, Rebecca and I both have a strong affinity for the country of Brazil. We have numerous friends who either live there or were born there, we have studied the language, and we have had non-English speaking Brazilian friends live with us in our home for months at a time. We even had our honeymoon in Brazil. Imagine our surprise when we found that our latest charter was a family born and raised in our favorite South American country!
The D’Andrea family fit the mold of many of our last groups of charter guests, that being a family with teenage children. In this case, the two teen boys were celebrating their 16th birthday on One Love. How cool is that?
The weather during the charter, the one thing that we can’t control, couldn’t have been better. We had light winds for our travels east but still enough breeze to allow us to have some fantastic sails. We were greeted by dolphins on both our initial passage, and on our final sail back from Jost Van Dyke to St. John. You can’t beat dolphins for getting people excited.
This charter was also special in that Andrea, the mom of the group, is a professional photographer. She was seldom without her camera, taking images for work, and was kind enough to share a number of the images below (the ones without the One Love watermark). Please take a moment to visit her website and check out some of her work!
