Charter Catamaran ReAction: NEW CREW

Terry & Ruth: New Crew of ReAction - March 1st 2013


Your crew places a very strong emphasis on safety, in order to ensure that your holiday goes without incident. It is important to us that you can relax and enjoy the delights of your wonderful vacation in paradise, without ever having to think of "what may happen". That is our job, and one that we take very seriously. Whether it is watching over kids as they snorkel while Mum and Dad relax and enjoy a drink, reefing the sails when the breeze picks up, choosing a safe place for fun and frolics on the tube or skiis or simply deciding which anchorage is most suitable for the current weather conditions, you can rest assured that your comfort and safety are our utmost priority.

Terry & Ruth

Ruth and Terry are a very welcoming couple who work as a team in all aspects of the running of the boat. It is very important to them that each guest that they welcome on board ReAction enjoys every moment of their stay and has a holiday to remember forever.

Terry has been "messing around in boats" since he was a child. He started sailing dinghies and then moved onto larger boats. Despite being a qualified electrician he always yearned to turn his hobby into a career, and following his first trans-Atlantic crossing with friends, he decided to do just that.
He is a commercially endorsed MCA Yachtmaster (both sail and power). He has also been both helm and launching authority for his local branch of Ireland's volunteer lifeboat service. His other great passion is diving and he looks forward to showing the delights that the Caribbean has to offer to ReAction's guests. For those guests who do not wish to dive, Terry and Ruth are really happy to bring their guests, young and not so young, snorkeling.

Ruth formerly worked as a teacher before joining Terry for a career in sailing. She has always enjoyed cooking and has taken cookery courses in places such as Rick Steins Seafood School in Padstow, England and Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford, Ireland amongst others. She cooks a diverse range of meals, and particularly loves using local fresh produce whenever possible. She is more than happy to accommodate any special dietary requests. See Ruth's sample menu.

Together Ruth and Terry have run a 47' charter catamaran in the Bahamas, a private 70' monohull, and a 58' charter catamaran in the Caribbean. They have crossed the Atlantic together 4 times, have cruised extensively around the Caribbean, Bahamas, Miami, the Mediterranean, Atlantic Islands and, of course, at home in Ireland.

ReAction is a 55-foot Lagoon sailing catamaran with a crew of two. ReAction is fully air conditioned and accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 cabins. The two aft cabins have queen berths, the forward starboard has a double, and the forward port cabin has single over/under bunk beds. Each guest cabin has private ensuite heads/showers. ReAction has a 15-foot dinghy with 60HP motor, waterskis, kneeboard, wakeboard, tube, two kayaks with kites, snorkel equipment, TV/VCR/DVD in salon, on board wifi where available, etc. ReAction has a dive instructor and offers 5 dives/week for to up to 5 certified divers, gear included.

Looking forward to your inquiries.
