Captain Eric Carter
Growing up just off the Narragansett Bay in Massachusetts, Eric grew up with the lakes and rivers of New England as his playground. His lifelong love of being outdoors and on the water progressed from swim team to lifeguard and eventually to 20 years as a California State Park Ranger. As a Park Ranger, Eric worked and played along the redwood coast and the rivers of the Sierra foothills for almost all of his career.
After being stationed on Angel Island, in the San Francisco Bay, Eric’s love of all things nature and water turned into a passion for sailing. He wasn't convinced when his wife suggested they join the nearby yacht club. But, after a few of the Friday night beer can races bringing up the rear end on their beloved and tiny Wabi Sabi, Eric returned to his wife with what he thought was a brilliant and totally original idea—joining the nearby Corinthian Yacht Club! Eric continues to sail as a means of commuting from Angel Island to the mainland, race on the San Francisco Bay, and sail anywhere his wife will let him, such as Croatia and the Virgin Islands.
Eric and Stacey are also members of the most exclusive (and largely imaginary) yacht club in America, the Angel Island Yacht Club. Since only a handful of California State Park employees ever live on Angel Island, the yacht club will remain the exclusive domain of a lucky few sailors.
Eric’s passion for sailing and fun is infectious and sure to brighten your vacation.
Eric holds a USCG OUPV license.
Chef/Captain Stacey Carter
As a teenager on the lakes of Alabama, Stacey spent her summers pulling water skiers from morning to dusk. Her interest in sailing began with an American Sailing Association (ASA) 101 course in south Florida, followed by a long road trip through Texas to buy a 16’ sailboat. Sailing that small boat was a small step on what would become a lifelong passion for being on the water.
After moving to the San Francisco Bay Area, Stacey’s sailing became less a hobby and more a passion. Sailboat vacations to the Virgin Islands and Croatia expanded her boating horizons, while sailboat racing on the San Francisco Bay honed her skills.
Stacey and her husband Eric live on Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay, making boating a part of their daily lives as the sole means of getting to and from the island. Stacey and her husband are active members of the Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon,
California, where they can often be found in the late evening after just stopping by for a quick and early lunch.
Stacey’s true passion and excitement come from sailing in warmer water than San Francisco, such as the Caribbean. As a certified scuba diver and water sports enthusiast, crystal-clear warm waters are where she finds the most joy. Her interests in healthy eating and sunset happy hours are perfectly balanced for the Caribbean boating lifestyle. Stacey holds a USCG 25 Ton Master’s license and sailing endorsement.
