Captain Coy Theobalt

Captain Coy Theobalt began his love for boating at the age of eight when he decided he wanted to become a boat captain when he grew up. At age fifty, Coy finally achieved his lifelong goal and became a US Coast Guard Captain. It was a long and winding road for him to get to owning his own Charter Business in the US Virgin Islands on his beloved Sailboat, Gypsy Wind. He now spends his days teaching sailing, fly fishing, playing music and sailing his new boat, Endurance around the Caribbean Sea.

Captain Don Harring

Captain Don started sailing before he could walk. He grew up racing one design boats - scows, Lasers and Coronado 15's. He has been racing keelboats on Flathead Lake and in the Pacific Northwest the last 30 years, primarily as Tactician and Helmsman aboard various racer/cruiser yachts. "I love to sail on anything, anywhere. Our best family vacations the last 10 years have been bareboat charters..." Sailing is fun for all ages and abilities if you make it fun, key to that is learning how to handle the boat in whatever conditions Mother Nature throws at you.
