My name is Jeremy Dugan. I am co-owner and Captain of S/Y Qwest. Melissa Edwards, my first mate is the other co-owner. I have nearly 15 years sailing experience in the US, British, and Spanish Virgin Islands. I worked as a repair technician, guide, and Captain for Caribbean Sailing Charters for four years.
I was a private yacht Captain for a 1963 Sparkman and Stephens Yawl, “Marage” for 5 years. I have Captained for The Moorings several times. Now we have our own yacht, and we are chartering her!
Melissa has three years experience on Qwest, (she used to be a dairy farmer with her father in Vermont) but she has been a quick study and is the most agile sailor I have met – she has a love of climbing around. Dolphins are her favorite and I will go ahead and warn you that she will drop whatever she is doing when she sees them. (Not to the point of endangering anyone!) She keeps Qwest ship shape and keeps the Captain in line, too. We love to meet new people and share the Beautiful Virgin Islands with them. We are both very history oriented and we like to share that too.
