About Sail VI
Captain Ryan and his wife and First Mate, Mumfy, have sailed all over the eastern seaboard and Caribbean. They've lived aboard the sailboat Justice and the trusty Liberty, for the better part of the last 20 years. They have raised their two children to have a deep love and respect for the ocean and sailing.
Born in the Naval Academy Hospital in Annapolis, MD, Captain Ryan grew up sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. Since finding his way to the Virgin Islands in 2006, he has found a love for the consistent trade winds, incredible nearby destinations, and year-round sailing that the Islands provide. Before sailing for a living, Ryan worked as a professional drummer and has toured Europe and parts of Asia with jazz, funk, and rock bands. Ask him where he’s playing in St. Thomas or St. John during your visit!
Mumfy has homeschooled the kids as well as taught in high schools and is happy to share snorkeling tips and local St. Thomas history. Be sure to inquire about Mumfy’s Famous “Pum Runch!”
Your captain and crew know the islands and marine life intimately after years of combined local exploration. They delight in describing the natural surroundings and sharing tales behind local points of interest all across the water. Caribbean sailing is their passion and they find true joy in sharing that with their guests during their beautiful catamaran tours!
