The owners and crew, Mike and Jean Beswick have been married since 1981 and have been sailing together since 1990. Mike, the Captain, began sailing in dinghies at the age of 12 and in cruisers from the mid-80ís. An RYA/MCA Commercial Yachtmaster, Mike successfully sailed Jeannius across the Atlantic from Europe to her new home in the British Virgin Islands, arriving just in time for Christmas 2002. For over 5 years, Jeannius was a very popular boat in the TMM fleet and also made several trips down-island as far as the Grenadines with Mike and Jean at the helm.
In 2008 we were able to fulfill our long-standing ambition to leave cold, wet Britain behind and spend some time sailing Jeannius with friends old and new (and not yet met!) before leaving the Caribbean for a 15-month around the world voyage as one of the boats in the 2010 World ARC. Now this is almost at its end and we hope you will come and join us aboard for a vacation in the wonderful British Virgin Islands or on one of our down-island adventure sails.
