Captain Shane spent his childhood in Hout Bay, Cape Town, and started sailing when he was 12 years old, building experience in the waters across the Cape Peninsula. Before getting his captain’s license, Shane studied advertising, photography and cocktail mixology. He worked for many years as a water sports instructor by day and a DJ by night. In 2012, he completed his RYA Yachtmaster’s, allowing him to enter into the charter industry in 2013 with the ideal combination of skills, and he has been working as a charter yacht captain for the past 7 years.
His love for travel has opened doors for him to charter in some of the most sought-after locations across the globe, including the Mediterranean, the Bahamas and many of the Leeward and Windward Caribbean islands.

Diving has found a huge place in Shane’s heart thanks to the vastly populated Caribbean waters that exhibit some of “Nature’s Little Secrets”. His zealous enthusiasm for experiencing sea life from a diver’s perspective would have him living there, if not for the problem of there being a limited oxygen supply underwater. Shane is always keen to show his guests the best of everything, above and below the waterline. He has the sort of easy-going personality that makes everyone feel comfortable and his charisma is endlessly entertaining.

He has been honing his skills in restaurants for the past eight years, working in gastro pubs, French brasseries, island resorts and even working for a Michelin starred chef. After a few years of learning his trade in London, he set his eyes on sunnier places and moved to the British Virgin Islands to work on a remote eco resort in their bustling kitchen. Eventually, with 5 busy seasons, a hurricane or two and a healthy dose of Dark and Stormy’s under his belt, he ranked his way up to Head Chef. Then, after completing an Atlantic crossing on a 44’ catamaran in 2020 with girlfriend, Erin, he set his sights on expanding his experience to the yachting world.

He enjoys creating, planning, and producing fresh, healthy meals and he loves to cook with local ingredients, mixing fantastic Caribbean produce with a European touch that St Maarten and St Barth’s abundantly provide.

The Annex rocks! The boat was wonderful. It was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well-maintained. The accommodations exceeded all our expectations.

The make or break aspect of any charter is the crew and they were magnificent. Shane, Anna, and Erin are incredible people and immediately made us feel at home. They took care of everything we needed and even put up with all of our shenanigans. Shane is an experienced captain and spent time every day talking to us about the day's sail. He would provide options and make suggestions based on what we wanted to do. At the end of the week, we all felt like we made some great new friends and, since a few of us are from Cleveland, it was great when they showed us their love for our favorite Cavalier, Lebron James!

Erin's food was delicious and Shane's cocktails were epic! There was something different at every sitting and she always prepared us a unique snack between meals.

We can't wait for the chance to charter another trip with the crew of The Annex and can't recommend them enough!

Lynne:

Not surprisingly, we enjoyed another fabulous vacation with Shane and Anne. Erin is certainly an excellent addition to the team. Erin's culinary skill, creativity, ambition and desire are remarkable!

What made our time on the Annex so memorable (just like last time) is that it makes us feel so relaxed and so special. We feel pampered and yet completely laid back at the same time. Shane and Anne cater to us completely and adjust to whatever is needed or desired. This time around, it was eye opening to see the post-hurricane damage and recovery efforts. It was also great fun to play around with the cool toys on the boat and to enjoy lots of excellent snorkeling. Having sailed the BVI two years ago, the scenery and experience this time was no less interesting, beautiful, relaxed or enjoyable. As we mentioned to Shane and Anne, we have never before repeated a vacation until this one and we did not come back because the boat was new - we came back because we knew we would experience a perfect vacation with Shane and Anne. And we did. When we think of our favorite vacations, sailing with them is invariably the first image that comes to our minds.

So, to summarize:

Food/Drinks: Amazing!

Catamaran: Luxurious and Fun!

Hospitality: Unparallelled!

BVI: Gorgeous, even as they rebuild!

A group of 2 friends that we booked aboard with Shane & Anne on a previous 45' Catamaran in January, 2016 said:
My husband and I both wrote reviews which you will see below so that you could see both points of view which both arrive at the same thing:

OURS: This was ABSOLUTELY a vacation of a LIFETIME! Shane and Anne were instrumental in making that happen.

HERS:

Our sailing trip was a Christmas gift from my husband for Christmas 2014. He told me to research which boats I was interested in to sail the British Virgin Islands. After much web search I found the Gypsy Princess which seemed very interesting. They seemed to have a lot of the toys that we might like to use including paddle-boards which I had always wanted to try. After reading about the Captain and First Mate (Shane and Anne) I decided that they seemed like they would be a fun couple to sail with. They were brokered with Carefree Yacht Charters. We contacted Carefree Charters and began the process of booking our trip.

Lynne at Carefree Yacht Charters was very helpful throughout the simple process. We were kept informed throughout and sent friendly reminders when our deposits were due which was nice for us to plan into our budget for the year. She even kept us informed about extras like fishing permits in case we were interested. We were not but if you are it's important to get your permits in advance. We were sent forms to fill out with our preferences for meals and activities. This was helpful too so that we didn't have to make those types of decisions during our vacation. It made it feel more like a vacation when my husband and I weren't looking at each other saying "what do you want to do?" with the other responding "I don't know, what do YOU want to do?" It also is helpful for our Captain and First Mate to plan their shopping for our meals since there are limited opportunities for them to do so. We were told that Shane and Anne would be in touch with us within a couple of weeks of our trip to answer any questions we may still have and to ask any questions they may have.

A couple of weeks before our trip Shane called and we did have a few questions about outlets, phone use, wifi, etc. He was very capable of answering our questions and put us very much at ease. He said that he anticipated that the weather would be good for most if not all of our trip and they looked forward to meeting us. He mentioned that he noticed in our paperwork we had submitted to Carefree Yacht Charters that we were going to be staying in St. John a couple of nights before they were scheduled to pick us up in St. Thomas. He asked if we would rather be picked up in St. John instead of St. Thomas which is where we were originally scheduled. This was so helpful and we are so thankful that they did that for us. It saved us another ferry ride and a long taxi ride and at least another hour and a half of traveling.

12:00 pick up at St. John and Shane and Anne are right on time. We were so excited! A few safety things were explained to us immediately and how to use things like the toilets and showers and then we were on our way. Shane gave us a brief itinerary and explained, of course, that at sea these things are always subject to change. We told him that we were very easy going about this trip and are here to relax.

Anne had delicious snacks waiting for us which was just the beginning for MANY DELICIOUS meals, snacks, cocktails and desserts. We had only booked half-board so that we could try out some restaurants on the islands but had we known what a fantastic cook Anne is we would have absolutely booked full-board. We did dine at a couple of really good restaurants but still nothing compared to Anne's cooking.

Shane's sailing abilities and knowledge of sailing and the area made us COMPLETELY at ease. We are much older than he and Anne but truly felt completely safe every minute we were with them. Shane knew all the in's and out's of every beach, mooring, dock, etc... He knew when we needed to head out from one spot to get the best spot at the next. He knew which restaurants to go to on all the island. He knew when and where there would be live music on different islands. He knew how we could get around if we wanted to spend time at any of the islands. He knew where we would spot things like turtles and different kinds of fish. I'm not at all a swimmer but was very much able to enjoy kayaking, paddle-boarding (yes, I did it and love it), relaxing on the beach, relaxing on the boat, eating and reading a novel. My husband is a swimmer and was able to snorkel and get as much exercise as he wanted by swimming.

HIS:

I cannot think of a better way to enjoy the British Virgin Islands. Shane and Anne made our experience incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating. This was no small feat considering that (1) we are used to packing lots into our vacations, almost never resting in our quest to maximize new experiences, and (2) one of us doesn't really like to swim or to be in water where things are swimming with you! But for this vacation, we threw caution to the wind and asked our hosts to design everything for us. We opted for half-board (half meals on the ship and half meals on shore) and asked our hosts to design an itinerary which brought us to cool places and introduced us to great places to eat on the islands.

And so we come to our first, and perhaps only, problem. Absolutely nothing compared to Anne's cooking. From breakfasts to snacks to dinners, she outdid herself. There was not a single meal that left us unhappy. So, although dining on the islands was nice (for example, the Sugar Mill on Tortola was really nice), nothing quite compared to an excellent meal on the boat. We don't think that Shane's delicious afternoon cocktails did anything to enhance our perception of Anne's meals, but they didn't hurt! So, our advice is go full board.

Shane's itinerary was fabulous. Just enough sailing to see how it's done, but plenty of time to relax, snorkel and soak up the sun. Which brings us back to concern (1) and (2) above. Enjoying the beauty of these islands (whether sailing, moored in a beautiful bay or taking brief excursions to shore) was never boring! There were five of us traveling together and we each found time to enjoy each other's company and to find our own quiet time. Shane was always ready to accommodate our interests at a moment's notice. Despite our own tendencies, we were able to relax and enjoy. For that, we are grateful! Our non-swimmer was perfectly at home on a flotation device in Shane's home-made containment zone and he even succeeded in getting her to try stand-up paddle boarding!

The boat, itself, was beautiful. Plenty of room for enjoying time together and plenty of spaces to enjoy some private time reading a book, sun-bathing or star-gazing. Things just seemed to work naturally and we all felt very much at home, and we were all convinced that this was due to the hospitality and preparation of Shane and Anne.

And now a little more about them. They each turned 25 years old during our trip. We were endlessly impressed with their professionalism, friendliness, caring, maturity and poise. We would be honored to call them our kids! Shane's knowledge, command and self-assurance were inspiring. Anne's sweet, considerate attention to detail and culinary skills were impressive. Most impressive, perhaps, was the sense that these two would fit beautifully with any combination of passengers - an older crowd (like us), families with children or a group of college kids. We suspect they'd be able to make any group of passengers incredibly happy and well cared-for. Regardless, they seemed to us to be a perfect combination as hosts.

They were happy to hang back and let us enjoy our group of 5, but they were equally comfortable joining our group and sharing stories that made everyone's experience more enjoyable.
