Captain: Richard Darling

Nationality: USA

Capt. Richard Darling
Captain Richard hails from a small town in upstate New York near the Lake Ontario shoreline where he learned absolutely nothing about sailing! That is until he spent some college years in Daytona, then went back to NY and was fortunate enough to enter the racing scene where he purchased his own sailboat and hasn’t stopped sailing since. In 2003, Richard moved to the Virgin Islands and acquired his USCG Master’s License. Since then, he has worked in the charter industry as Captain or Engineer on various sailing and motor yachts up to 160 feet.

Calling St. Thomas home for more than 15 years. Richard has sailed thousands of miles through the islands and beyond, and he loves sharing some of the best kept secret anchorages and dive locations along the way along with his knowledge of the stars under the beautiful Caribbean night skies.

Chef Suzanne Carter
Chef Suzanne hails from Philadelphia, PA where she studied under some of the best Italian cooks on the east side. She learned at an early age that perfectly blended herbs and spices will bring your dish to the next level. Her family moved to St. Petersburg, FL where her eyes were immediately drawn to the sea. Through the years her need to be in the islands never waned nor did her desire to create mouth watering meals. Her dishes are best described as elegantly simplistic. A wide range of culinary styles beautifully blended with fresh local ingredients, a superb mixture of herbs and spices, and sprinkled with a pinch of Mama’s love will have you begging for seconds. But trust me, you are going to want to save room for dessert!


April 2023
My wife Jennifer and I have been coming down to the BVI for over 20 years now. We have chartered both with a captain as well as doing bare boat excursions. I can honestly say that our week on Touch The Sky has been one of the most rewarding vacations we have ever done. Captain Richard and Chef Suzanne were more than we could have imagined. The skillset for both of them was obvious from the very beginning. However, the way they embraced our family and the way they took care of us was more than special. It was genuine.

We were a three generation group, which I imagine could be a daunting assignment, when you are in relatively close quarters. Our grandkids are 9, almost 7, and 5 years of age. Jennifer and I wanted our kids and grandkids to experience as much of the BVI experience as possible in a week. We succeeded because of Captain Richard and Suzanne. Norman Island, Cooper Island, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke were all destinations that we were able to enjoy. The grandkids acclimated themselves quickly to the sailing lifestyle and that was all due to Captain Richard and Suzanne.

I cannot say enough about Chef Suzanne and her culianry expertise. We were so pampered from morning fruit plates on the fly bridge followed by an amazing breakfast. Lunches were always a treat but the best always was the dinners she served us in the evenings on the back of Touch The Sky. The flavors and presentation of each meal rivaled ANY meal you might get on shore. Her salmon dinner as well as the family recipe she shared one night for pasta was amazing. I am still blown away by the quality of each meal coming out of that galley kitchen. Needless to say, coming home after a week eating Chef Suzanne’s meals was a real jolt of reality. Coffee on the fly bridge in the early morning is still the best.

Finally, I cannot say enough about Captain Richard. With him at the helm you are going to be in safe hands. His quiet confidence and calm demeanor was infectious. I think what was really special is the way he (and Suzanne) brought our grandkids into their world. With his assistance, each took turns at the wheel. He showed infinite patience in answering their questions. Each night while Suzanne and Richard were plating dinner, they let our 5 year old granddaughter run food to the table. It sounds like an insignificant thing but I assure you it was magical.

Finally, thank you Paradise Yacht Management for matching us up with Captain Richard and Chef Suzanne. Touch The Sky was our home for the week. We came away feeling sad having to leave it and the wonderful people who crewed it. Let it rock!

Touch The Sky and the crew Captain Richard and Chef Suzanne facilitated one of the most memorable family vacations that our family has ever experienced. There is not enough space on this site to detail the magic that unfolded on our adventure. Touch The Sky was safe, comfortable and allowed us to explore the BVI with total confidence. Again, can't say NEARLY enough about Captain Richard and Chef Suzanne. They embraced our three generation group and made us feel totally at ease. We went into the week being flexible and knowing the weather conditions would determine a lot of what we did. We crammed a LOT of bucket list moments.

We are back from sailing the BVI and WOW!! what an amazing time had. Thank you for all your help getting our trip set up. We had a couple in our group that has sailed 3-4 times before and they said this was the BEST. I think that was because we were there with them but really we had the BEST Boat, and the BEST BEST crew. Suzanne and Richard are a 10+ in our book.

Richard & Suzanne,
Wow! What a cruise. Our family was so lucky to be able to take a trip like this. But even luckier to have the two of you take care of us. It is amazing how two extremely professional people can also be so fun and able to blend in with our group. Suzanne – the food! I am hoping for many of your recipes – absolutely outstanding! I hope the boat owner knows how lucky he is to have you taking care of this beautiful boat. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness and assistance while we were sick. If you ever find yourselves in Georgia – you are welcome.

Best wishes,
Linda & Jim

What a wonderful trip and it was all made possible by the two of you. You guys work so well together it was like a fine oiled machine. Our group offered many challenges and you met each one with grace and patience. Keep up the great work. Anyone would be lucky to sail with you.
November 2022
Thank you Richard and Suzanne for a very great week. Richard, your knowledge of the area was excellent however Suzanne’s cooking topped it all☺! Our family had some dietary requirements but you guys did a fabulous job. Richard – take care of Suzanne because we need her next time we are back! Great job!

Richard and Suzanne,
What a difference a fabulous crew makes on a trip like this. You are both amazing and such fun. I’m just so sorry we all got sick. It just made it so much harder for you, but you were perfect anyway. Thanks so much for everything. The boat owner is extremely lucky to have you both. Thank again. Safe travels always.

Richard and Suzanne,
We loved meeting you both. Your personalities were a great compliment to our group. Having such an experienced crew like you we knew we were always safe, always went to the best spots, and always moored far away from the mosquitos! You are the perfect blend of five star service but not stuffy and engage in such a genuine way. We look forward to sailing with you again and wouldn’t want to have another sailing adventure without you.

Richard and Suzanne,
Thank you for making it easy for me with the diet restrictions. It was reassuring that you could work with what I could eat. Loved the variety, so many things I could eat. From when I first started taking to you about diet, I knew I didn’t need to worry. Thank you so much! It made a difference in my trip! Thank you again!

Most amazing trip ever! Thank you for your hospitality, knowledge, amazing food, and company. I loved Richard’s silly sense of humor and Suzanne’s amazing cooking. Trip of a lifetime! If you ever need a third on the crew, I may need to quit my full time job!

Suzanne and Richard,
Fxxxg flawless. Literally everything from the first hello has been flawless. My expectations have been surpassed beyond belief and despite my healthy hesitation for and of the water, I can’t wait to come back. Mostly to hang with both of you. But the view is always pretty damn awesome (thanks for that, Richard).

Dear Richard & Suzanne,
We can’t thank you enough for your amazing hospitality aboard Touch the Sky. The meals, and pre-meals, were delicious and the service was impeccable … Your warmth and inviting spirit allowed us to fully enjoy being present with one another, all too easily missed on a day to day basis.
The Christmas touches were perfect from the lights to the tray of Christmas cookies and candies.
One of the best vacations and most memorable Christmases ever! We will be back!!! You both are the best!!!

“You two are the absolute most fun we could have had! Great food, we hit no boats (Lol!), and had a memorable time. See you next year… if you will have us!”

Hi Suzanne & Richard,

Thank you so much for such a memorable experience sailing around St. John with our YPO group. We loved every minute. It was Ryan and my first boat trip and it surely will not be our last. You were both fantastic hosts and we so enjoyed getting to know you. Our favorite bay was Salt Pond – the turtles were amazing! Thank you for a relaxing, easy, and unforgettable trip. And the meals… can we talk about that? The food and hospitality exceeded our expectations! We hope to return soon!”
July 2021
Richard and Suzanne,

We had such a wonderful time sailing the USVI with you! It was filled with plenty of turtles, stingrays, and fish. But more importantly, it was the great company. We can’t wait to sail with you again!
July 2021
You guys were amazing and the Butler Family had a great long weekend. Looking forward to the next trip!
July 2021
Dear Richard and Suzanne,

We can’t thank you enough for your generosity and hospitality! We loved tubing in Magens Bay, stargazing off St. John, and snorkeling in countless beautiful coves. Suzanne, the food was incredible! We especially loved your banana pancakes, crab cakes, sun-dried tomato ravioli and ALL the desserts! Thanks for sharing evening card games and giving us a family vacation we will never forget! The thought of doing another charter without Richard and Suzanne is not even an option for us.
