About Authors of There’s a Yacht More to Life
Cynthia, a public relations professional from the Midwest and Winston, a construction company owner from New Brunswick, Canada, met on the beach in 1990 in La Jolla, CA. Lured by an ad they saw vacationing in the Caribbean, they traded their ocean-side condo for a grass hut, running a pirate bar on a tiny island—then moved to U.S. Virgin Island’s Hassel Island, where they raised the population to a whopping nine.
Acquiring dual U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s Licenses and transitioning from island landlubbers to fulltime professional yacht captains, Winston and Cynthia have crewed luxury sailing and motor yachts in the South Pacific, Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and the Intracoastal Waterway. They’ve hosted more than 100 week-long yacht charters and are well-known throughout the industry, having worked in it now for almost twenty years.

Ever wish you could just chuck everything, live on an island, sail off into the sunset?
This is our story—a baby-boomer couple who abandoned our San Diego corporate lifestyle, and all our “stuff,” for a life in the Caribbean. Spanning twenty-five years, the pitfalls we navigated, and the transition from minimum wage at a pirate bar to running megayachts and handling millionaire yacht owners, make hurricanes look like child’s play.
We wanted more out of our lives after forty. We learned to expect less too. At times we lowered our expectations to the depths of our souls. We weathered twelve hurricanes and hosted 100-plus charters, outlived three firings, endured five resignations, even survived life in a van without divorcing—all the while looking for that perfect job.
The idea for this book came from a seven-year-old guest aboard a charter yacht we were running. “You guys are so lucky,” she’d said with wide-eyed envy. “You get to go on everybody’s vacation!”
There’s a yacht more to the story that kept this romance underway at full speed. Our story might compel you to revisit your own dreams, seize unexpected opportunities and, just maybe, find your own paradise.
