Crew Profile

Captain William Bill Pinkney was born and grew up in Chicago. Migdalia Vachier Pinkney was born in Fajardo, PR. From very different cultures and backgrounds they found themselves kindred souls upon meeting in Connecticut where Bill was Master of the Schooner Amistad and Migdalia was on Staff at Wesleyan University. When they married their plan was to return to Puerto Rico where Bill was stationed in the Navy and lived for three years after his discharge. The warm breezes, beautiful beaches, and great atmosphere of the Caribbean culture drew them home. Restless, they found work in and about boats and the dream of sharing their experience and love of the Island was spawned. They have sailed the BVI yearly for seventeen years and have a treasure of experiences to share with their guests.
