Owner Operators onboard: Jen and Sam Augsberger, and always good to know about who you are sailing with, in their own words, here is a bit of background info on the crew.
“Captain Sam and his wife Jen are consummate sailors and power boaters. Sam grew up enjoying reservoir lakes in Kentucky then progressed to offshore, blue-water sailing in the 1970’s, sailing from South Florida to the Bahamas and the Florida Keys.

Sam and Jen met in college in Ohio and after graduating in 1985 they moved to South Florida. Their first “apartment” was a sailboat in North Palm Beach. When they later moved onto land, they always had a boat – either sail or power. While both were busy, Sam with his construction business and Jen with her professional career, they made time for fishing off the Florida coast for the large pelagic fish in the warm and bountiful gulfstream. Weekends were spent boating with friends and their two young daughters.

In 2004, Sam and Jen decided to take their affection for the sea a step further and they purchased their first catamaran, moved their family aboard and sailed off to explore the Caribbean for what was to be a two-year sabbatical. After two years in the Caribbean, they decided to sail westward, go through the Panama Canal and explore the wonders of the South Pacific. Returning to the mainland seven years after setting sail, Sam and Jen soon missed island life. With both daughters in college in Florida, they moved to St. Thomas in 2012. Sam and Jen are forever sailors, fishermen, and gracious hosts. With the purchase of their current catamaran, Starfish, they are ready to escort you through the beautiful Virgin Islands!

Safety is first and foremost on Starfish. Just as he kept his family safe during their years at sea, Captain Sam is dedicated to keeping guests safe during their vacation. Sam holds a 100 ton Masters license with Sailing and Towing Endorsements, as well as STCW, CPR, AED, and First Aid Certifications. Sam is also a PADI Open Water certified diver as well. With thousands of sea miles as well as extensive safety and boat handling training and experience, guests can relax and enjoy themselves knowing that a mature and responsible captain is at the helm.

Jen and Sam have been married for over 25 years. Having lived aboard a number of those years with their daughters, Sam and Jen make an excellent crew team. Jen, who has nearly as many blue water sea miles on her log as Sam, is also PADI Open Water certified, and serves as First Mate and Chef. From her years of living aboard and sailing the world with her family, Jen has acquired her own style of yacht cuisine that incorporates fresh local ingredients from land and sea and flavors of the islands that she has visited.

She delights in introducing guests to unique Caribbean flavors in her menus. Jen can also run Starfish with equal ease. Her piloting and navigation skills are well tuned from years of sea living and travel. Jen looks forward to welcoming you aboard, sharing Starfish and the island lifestyle with you, allowing you to feel cared for, relaxed, and comfortable while you are guided to some of the most exotic and beautiful islands in the world.”
