Crew

Captain: Ed Irwin

Capt. Ed Irwin
I guess you can say I have spent most of my life trying to get lost in the outdoors. Born in Newfoundland, Canada I spent as much time as I could outside, fishing the streams for trout and getting lost in woods. As a small boy I would drive my mother crazy by wandering off only to come home with pockets full of the fish I caught, or birds and small animals I captured that I wanted to keep as pets.

I have enjoyed back country camping, hiking, canoeing my entire life. The Boundary Waters lakes and portages one of are my favorite places to get lost in. To ride my motorcycle, lightly packed for finding remote fly-fishing streams, not really having a destination in mind, is my perfect get away.

I grew up on the small lakes of Northern Illinois, driving to school in my small motorboat. The first time I was on a sailboat I instantly fell in love with the simple act of the wind taking my boat anywhere.

After sailing Lake Michigan for many years, Erin and I created a plan to take off on our own boat and sail to as many places of the world that we could. We found an abandoned Cape Dory 36 and rebuilt it and outfitted it for long distance travel. Years of hard work paid off in a beautifully restored and perfectly outfitted classic sailboat that allowed us to live our sailing dreams.

We have sailed and lived aboard our boat for the past 4 years. We have sailed the Great Lakes, the Chesapeake, off shore from Norfolk around Bermuda to the Caribbean. We then sailed back north to Maine, sailing “down east” for the summer and headed back down the eastern seaboard to head off shore again to the Caribbean.

We have spent the past 2 seasons in the Virgin Islands, US and BVI exploring and finding amazing coves, anchorages, becoming PADI scuba certified, and learning why everyone says that once you make it to the Caribbean- you don’t want to leave. I am looking forward to showing guests why the Caribbean is a sailing paradise.


Chef Erin Irwin
My childhood playground was Tower Marina in Saugatuck, MI. My family bought a River Queen houseboat when I was 10 and we spend every weekend and all of the summers until I was 18 playing on Lake Michigan’s waters. I loved everything about being on the water and was always the first and last one to jump into the water, no matter what temperature!

I am always up for an adventure and tend to do life in a bigger than life way. I am nearly 100% Irish and definitely have the gift of gab and will tell stories all day. I am a care taker, the oldest daughter of a big family, mother of 5 kids, a nurse/midwife for 25 years, and as professor for a good part of my life I am a natural teacher.

When cooking for my family I wanted them to have a healthy diet. Most of our meals were whole foods from our garden, cooked from scratch. My cooking style has an emphasis on a healthy balance of the Mediterranean foods, Asian cuisines, and comfort foods that are adapted to healthy, but rich versions. I have spent a good portion of my life in Chicago, and have become an obsessive foodie, constantly searching for the perfect meal at the perfect restaurant which is an endless quest that has taught me so much about the experience of eating well.

As the oldest daughter of a big family , and the mother of a large family, I was always the center of planning family gatherings and parties. I love finding unique themes and creating relaxed, special-moments and memories together. Ed and I have found the outdoors, especially sailing, to always be the perfect setting for finding that moment to connect to each other, but to something bigger. It has always been the best stage for us to find joy, peace, adventure and excitement and we want to share that.

We especially look forward to having families find that elusive real time together. There just isn’t anything like being on a sailboat to allow for everything else to fade away and be connected to the people you love. We can’t wait to help others find that perfect spot- that perfect moment that will be a memory that holds forever.


Reviews

January 2023
Captain Ed & Erin, thank you for such a lovely, memorable week! We loved every minute and your wary hospitality was truly icing on the cake. We cant wait to host you in Austin someday! And we for sure will be seeing you again! We will miss you so much as we will the blue water. Gratefully!
January 2023
Erin & Ed, thank you for such an amazing week. Katrina is a great boat, but you two make it excellent. The food was incredibly delicious, for every meal. Each day of our trip jus got better and better under Captain Ed's guidance we always felt safe and secure. We all wish you the best finishing this season. And know our paths will cross again.
January 2022
Was the yacht comfortable and clean?
At 50 foot, the yacht could be considered small for a week long vacation but that was not the case. There was always plenty of room, plenty of places to sit and the cabins were very adequate. The ship was always clean and was cleaned constantly from the minute we got on the ship to the time we left, the crew was very meticulous!
Was the yacht well ventilated?
Absolutely! There was always plenty of air moving in, around and through the yacht.
Was the crew friendly and accommodating?
100% They were really more like family, a family that made sure you are safe, comfortable, well taken care of and overfed.
Was the food good and well presented?
The food was not good, the food was great! No matter what meal, no matter what day, the food was always a surprise, and it was always excellent. Chef Erin is very well trained in providing great cuisine. Whether it was breakfast fruit, the best guacamole salsa I've ever had or a multicourse dinner, everything exceeded expectations.
8. Additional comments about the yacht and crew?
As I stated before, the crew was really more like family. Capt. Ed sailed 5 to 6 hours per day at our request and has amazing skills as a captain/sailor and made the sailing so enjoyable. By the way we did sail with all sails fully up in the air, not just motoring around the Caribbean, it was absolutely awesome the entire time. Capt. Ed and chef Erin are husband and wife and they not only took care us but they take care of each other and it was just fun every day interacting with friends who had much in common.
Cruising Area

Did you like the area you chartered in?
The USVI Is a beautiful area and we enjoyed every minute of our time there. It would not have been as good if we did not have such a great captain and chef who knew the area well and took us to spots that caused them to fall love with the Virgin Islands. The sailing, scenery and the entire area was breathtaking every day and we owe so much to the crew of Katrina for spoiling us with the places they love.
January 2023
Erin & Ed – Thank you so much for an amazing week on the Katrina. There are too many highlights to list, but every single day exceeded expectations. So much amazing snorkeling, scuba diving, beach time, rainbows, sunsets, sun rises and time unplugged from devices. The food was fantastic and popular with everyone in the family. Erin and Ed were wonderful hosts and made everything easy for us. Thank you!
December 2022
Dear Captain Ed and Erin –

From the moment we set foot on Katrina, we immediately felt at ease. You both extended a warm and informative welcome that had all five us super excited for some quality boat and sea time. Thank you for making us feel welcome and comfortable, for answering all our questions and for explaining our itinerary each day along with the daily menus.

From the Christmas tree to the holiday floral arrangements and the stockings on the table for Christmas brunch, Erin, you didn’t miss a beat to make sure we had a memorable holiday while at sea. Thank you for helping us stick to a very full itinerary and for the bonus spots that you found for us to explore along the way. You and Ed handled our lost luggage situation with confidence and grace which is how we believe the two of you would handle any situation you were given.

Captain Ed, the sailing was top notch! Thank you for sailing us safely all over the BVIs and for answering all our sailing questions and for constantly ensuring we were safe on the water and on the boat. We are thankful for the extra attention you gave to us by putting out the floating mat and paddle boards, having snorkeling noodles at the ready and taking us to shore in the dingy whenever we pleased. Thank you also for the evening fish viewing.

Erin, thank you for nailing our menu for the week! Every single meal catered to the various food preferences of our family (vegetarian, dairy free, etc.) and they were super delicious. Some of our favorites include your poke bowls, fresh tortellini, caribbean chicken, breakfast strata, the banana pancake bar, your signature rum cake and your infamous sourdough bread. You are an amazing chef who took significant care to make sure our food preferences were incorporated and each of us had plenty of healthy food. The afternoon snacks, and cocktails were simply the icing on the cake!

Thank you for making it easy and enjoyable for us to be together on this fun and memorable sailing adventure.

Thank you for everything! We hope to see you back on the water soon.

Our best,

Carolann, David, Zach, Maya and Ethan

Ed and Erin, thank you for a week in absolute paradise, Heaven on earth! Words & pictures don't do it justice. From the start, everything you've shared with us has exceeded any expectations. From Buck Island to St. Croix to my favorite place, Maho, this is something I will never forget. Thank you for giving us such a unique, exciting experience. You guys have been so accommodating and I can't express my gratitude enough. Thank you for the trip of a lifetime. Can't wait to see what a journey you guys go on next. We will chat soon on how to acquire more sea time :)

Ed & Erin, you two were the most perfect, loving, and kind captains we could've ever hoped for. You made us feel so welcomed and comfortable from the moment we stepped on the boat. Your knowledge and love for sailing and boat like is so contagious and inspiring. We had a hell of a trip! I cannot believe how beautiful and peaceful this whole experience has been and I can't thank you both enough! I will miss you both so much and I will keep working on my knot skills to make Ed proud! :)

Dear Ed & Erin, thank you so much for this unforgettable trip. This was unlike anything I have ever done and to have you guys as our crew makes it 100x better. How you guys managed to set up private fireworks is still beyond me, but what a damn show that was. If there is a definition of a perfect week - I must say we have defined it. We have seen everything we possibly could've wished to see from the amazing harbors to the beautiful sea turtles. I appreciate everything you've done for us and will miss the hell out of you both! There is no one I would rather live on a boat for 7 days. I hope to keep in touch and see you both again very soon! - Paul

"Chef Erin and captain Ed Irwin, made our trip the best possible. They were accommodating to all of our needs. On our trip we made friends with these two awesome people that have phenomenal history and experience in sailing. And that’s just what we did!!! We were all about taking time to just relax and enjoy each other and make memories on our 35 wedding anniversary! With Erin and Ed’s intimate knowledge of great snorkeling areas we enjoyed several great days of snorkeling… The food was prepared with thought and care. I would highly recommend this vessel and the wonderful couple that took the time and care to make sure we had the time of our lives!"

One word: heavenly
Five star service
Words cannot express how we feel about you
wed take shots of that wing sauce
I'll raise you five pool noodle slaps
You one-up yourselves every day
Each time we drink lime in a coconut, we'll think of you!
What started as a 60th birthday celebration turned into a once in a lifetime vacation.  We swam with fish, turtles, and rays.  Don't kick us off we want to stay!  Chef Kestrel's meals were beyond gourmet while Captain Heather led the adventures each day.  The magical stars we saw each night, and even the bioluminescence to our delight.  Until next time we hope to see ya, we'll never forget our time on Katrina.
January 2022
Heather and Kestrel were amazing. I would give them my highest recommendation for anyone looking to book a catamaran charter in the USVI. It was fun sailing to different places for a few hours, then mooring to take advantage of the local reefs. Snorkeled every day. Swam every day. Excellent facilities Captain Heather was perfect. Knew everything about the area, placed us in great moorings to snorkel, swim and sleep for the nights. Incredibly friendly, personable and helpful. Kestrel prepared outstanding dishes all day long. Tasty, fresh, tropical, filling. Delicious. Amazing.

Only the best time I've ever had in my LIFE! Kestrel is an awesome chef and first mate. The food was fantastic! Captain Heather is sooo capable and showed us so many points of interest. It felt like I was sailing with family! I highly recommend The Katrina to anyone interested in a "trip of a lifetime." ~Joanne

December 2021
This trip has been the most amazing family vacation! It is our first time chartering a catamaran and our first visit to the USVI! I cant imagine a better way to explore and experience these beautiful islands!

Captain Heather and Chef Kestrel have been amazing! Both have made the trip so relaxing and fun! They feel like family to us! I appreciate Heather’s knowledge of the islands and her just knowing which spots were perfect for us! Kestrel takes hospitality to a whole new level! Between making incredible meals, fantastic cocktails and showing us all kinds of amazing sea creatures - her energy is infectious!

Thank you both so much for an incredible week that we will never forget! Much love! The Broadstreets! Happy sailing!
December 2021
The trip was magnificent and the best week our family has ever had.  Thank you so much for putting this together.  We had a blast!  The crew was great, especially the wonderful cook - whom keep us overfed the entire week (gained 7 pounds).  Really incredible week!  Thank you so much!!
December 2021
We had an awesome week on the Katrina! The crew was very service oriented, friendly and fun! The food and specialty drinks were amazing. We made some adjustments to our meal plan and itinerary along the way and the crew was happy to accommodate these changes seamlessly. We had plenty of activities and relaxing time with a good variety of locations around the USVI. The boat was perfect for the 8 of us and provided plenty of room for everyone. Thank you for an amazing trip. This is one that we would like to do again!
December 2021
Fantastic charter with our family and friends! Food was awesome and the hospitality and service from the crew was simply awesome! Adjusted seamlessly to our changes in plans and meals. We will do this trip again! Highly recommended!
July 2021
This was our first family vacation in over a year. It was exactly what we needed, tons of free time and relaxation. Captain Heather and Chef Kestrel attended to our every need and made our trip much more memorable. Captain Heather took us to places where we were able to snorkel with sea turtles, and a variety of unique sea life. Chef Kestrel did an amazing job in preparing daily cuisine. We loved dining by the open waters every morning and night. Spent time star gazing and enjoying beautiful sunsets over the top deck. Looking forward to our next family adventure in the Virgin Islands.
July 2021
This was our very first charter and it exceeded our expectations. Captain Heather and Chef Kestrel became like family. They took us to fantastic snorkel locations and taught us so much about ocean life. The food was excellent - even the kids tried everything! We loved our experience and hope to do it again some day. Captain Heather and Chef Kestrel made us feel incredibly comfortable - above and beyond. We did not want to leave! They had amazing patience and were super fun with our three kids aged 13, 12, and 10.
July 2021
Our first charter was everything we hoped for and more. Kestrel and Captain Heather were amazing. We felt safe and spoiled the whole trip. The itinerary and food were amazing and perfect. We will tell all of our friends to ask for this powerhouse female team for the best charter experience ever!
June 2021
This experience for both Nick and I has been nothing short of amazing. These amazing ladies will take care of you to the fullest. I promise anything we asked for they had. The food was so delicious! This was a great experience we plan to come back. Thank you ladies!
June 2021
Trip of a lifetime, and Captain Heather and Kestrel made it this incredible for us. Captain Heather is incredibly knowledgeable. We felt so safe! Kestrel is amazing - the food was delicious and she catered to our needs, went over and above. We became family. We highly recommend them and will keep in touch. It was a bucket list experience. We loved it and want to come back! We wouldn't want a charter with anyone else. Thank you for gifting us the experience of a lifetime.
June 2021
The Katrina is an amazing boat. Lots of room to gather and also to find quiet places for some alone time. Although Captain Heather and her crew are what made the trip an experience worth repeating year after year. From the beginning, she made our group feel safe secure, and at ease. The food was amazing. As foodies, we are always concerned about the level of the culinary experience. Let me tell you there is no need to worry onboard Katrina. After the first meal of fresh tuna marinated and grilled to perfection served with rice glazed carrots and the best Brussel sprouts, I have ever had. Every need was catered to and I feel they went above any beyond to make it a special occasion for our group. Can't wait to come back next year!!!

What an amazing week! It was exactly what we needed as a family with four busy kids and one leaving for college. Lots of great down time to relax and hang out together with spectacular views and being spoiled by Heather and Kestrel. The food was fabulous and plenty. Kestrel's specialty drinks were the perfect afternoon refreshment. Heather knew the best snorkeling spots and must see hideaways. It was a great family adventure! Thanks to the crew for all their hard work and special touches.
May 2021
Our trip on Katrina was an amazing experience. Captain Heather had wonderful recommendations of beautiful beaches, and customized our charter based on the what we wanted to do. We swam with sea turtles, saw beautiful beaches, stunning sunsets, and had an amazing afternoon with a band on our boat. The drinks and food from chef Jessica were unreal. We cancelled plans to go ashore for a dinner because any meal we could get would not compare to the food on the boat. If you are looking to charter a catamaran in the USVI/BVI, I cannot recommend Captain Heather, Chef Jessica, and the Katrina boat enough. It is an experience you will not forget.
May 2021
6 days on Katrina was a bucket trip of a life time!! Captain Heather and Chef/First Mate Jessica quickly became our friends. We can’t stop talking about our trip to our friends and family. They file your lead...as much or as little activity as you like. From snorkeling with turtles at Maho to breath taking sunsets, we were totally captivated with the beauty of St. John. With Captain Heather’s knowledge of the area we were able to experience pieces of St. John unreachable by land. We can’t say enough about the food. In fact, we are showing more pictures of our meals than anything. We are totally blown away with the attention to detail and preparation to provision this trip prior to heading out. We ended our trip with a private concert by After Irma on the back of our boat, perfect ending to a trip of a lifetime. If you are considering a trip like this, Katrina is your destination!!
April 2021
Our family had a wonderful time with Heather and Jessica! What a week! We loved Jessica's cooking, and thoroughly trusted our excellent Captain Heather. We enjoyed learning so much about the Islands, navigation, and sailing in the Caribbean. Our snorkeling experience was epic with Jessica taking amazing underwater photographs of all the sea creatures we found, with the highlight being an amazing octopus. Our kids loved water sports with Heather and I loved the daily yoga with Jessica! This all female crew was truly amazing and we'd recommend them to anyone who loves snorkeling, yoga, the ocean, great food and good people!

Warmly and with gratitude,

"This was our very first charter on a catamaran. It was well worth the wait! The crew was amazing! So hospitable and accommodating. Tim cooked the best meals. We especially loved the filet/mashed potatoes, pad thai and the yummy poke bowl.
This was the perfect setting to wind down and be with family. We were totally spoiled. Can't say enough about Heather and Tim! We will be back!!
