Brief

Capt. Kennon Jones
Originally from Georgia, Kennon has been sailing since 2011 when he decided to buy a 23’ sailboat from craigslist for $500. It was all downhill from there as sailing fever took hold. He went on to complete a two and a half year double handed circumnavigation (2018 - 2020) aboard his 1971 Tartan 34C Temujin which he still lives aboard and cruises in the off season. With over 33,000 nautical miles of experience, he holds a USCG Master Near Coastal license and works as a freelance captain for deliveries, charters, and sailing/cruising instruction. Prior to making a living on the water, Kennon worked for the Department of State in Washington, D.C. and extensively cruised the Chesapeake Bay. He has a degree in Economics and Chinese (Mandarin) from Wake Forest University and speaks Spanish, French, Mandarin, and Italian as well as bits of Indonesian, Russian, and Arabic. When not sailing Kennon enjoys scuba diving, spearfishing, wakeboarding, reading, dabbling in data science, and continuing to avoid climates where socks are necessary (though an exception is made for snow skiing).

Chef Stephanie Johnson
Stephanie was raised in beautiful Oregon but has spent 20 years throughout the Caribbean. She feels lucky to be able to call both naturally beautiful spots home. After graduating with a Marine Biology degree Stephanie discovered the yachting industry which combined her love of adventure, marine life, sharing food, meeting new people, and generally celebrating life.

Stephanie and her husband owned their own 72ft boat for 15 incredible years. They chartered all winter and traveled in the off season. When her husband passed away she decided she wasn’t done being on the water and had more to learn and explore so, she is back for more adventure. She holds a 100ton USCG Captains license and is excited to share her cooking skills developed in the Pacific Northwest and honed on her travels around the world.

Stephanie’s cooking tends to be on the lighter healthier side bringing in as many of the local ingredients as possible. However, her motto in life is, “Everything in moderation, including moderation!”

June 2022

My family sailed with another family on the Ventana for one week in the USVI. Michelle with Epic was fantastic throughout the selection and planning process and her insight was invaluable and much appreciated. We will work with her again and have already recommended her to other friends. The Ventana is a Lagoon 52 foot catamaran and the boat was perfect for our group. I can’t say enough good things about Captain Kennon and Chef Stephanie. From the food and beverages to the service and itinerary, it was all phenomenal and we felt completely pampered for the entire trip. They worked tirelessly so that we could relax, adventure and truly enjoy our time on vacation. We commented that it seemed not just a job for them but a true joy for them to ensure that we were happy and having fun. We would love to sail with them again!

December 2022

Kennon and Stephanie, Absolute best cruise yet from our many years of cruising! Can't wait to come back! You guys are the absolute best! You made a special family trip even better! Can't thank you enough for all your hospitality! May you both be blessed!!

January 2023

Kennon and Stephanie are incredibly wonderful - so knowledgable, easy going and focussed on making sure that everyone has an amazing time. Stephanie is a fantastic chef and our meals were absolutely amazing! Kennon's focus on finding the perfect spots to tuck in while effortlessly navigating three various weather was incredible. Many thanks for your incredible customer service, level of care, camera detail and kindness throughout the trip. Too many laughs and great experiences to mention here but this is one of our favorite family trips. Thank you. We love you both!

February 2023

Being on the water sailing and seeing all of the beautiful sights was awe inspiring and soul enriching But, it would not have been really as awesome had it not have been nearly as awesome had it not been for Kennon and Stephanie. I cannot think of one need or desire that they didn't cheerfully meet. Loved getting to know them both a little because they are both such genuinely pleasant and interesting people. Trip would not have been nearly as great with out them!

February 2023

The boat is amazing, the BVI is amazing, but Stephanie and Kennon made it all so much more. We've had an amazing trip. The food and hospitality has been the icing on the cake. Thank you so much for helping to make this trip the best yet. Friends for life! Amazing time with amazing friends/family.

February 2023

Kennon and Stephanie made the trip! The food was incredible but Stephanie brought such a calming energy to the boat. Always so lovely and helpful. Loved hanging with them in the evening as well. They were both so helpful with the water sports. Kennon made an obstacle course and it was so much fun to feel like a kid again. They are both so knowledgable. It was an unforgettable trip. Hope to see them again!

February 2023

Stephanie and Kennon could not have done more to make our trip 5 star with no exceptions. Stephanie's passion for the sea and the sea animals has rubbed off on me 100% at 5 months pregnant I could not have been more comfortable. We feel so lucky to have had such a perfect experience. Can't say thank you enough.

February 2023

This was a trip we will never forget - we have never been so pampered and so well cared for. The food was excellent and Stephanie was so careful to watch for all our food issues. The way Kennon and Stephanie quietly served us graciously and looked out for every need was such a blessing. It will be rough returning to normal life after this week of paradise. They truly know how to show people hospitality. Thank you for an unbelievable week!

March 2023

This trip far exceed our expectations! The food was incredible! 5 star plus. Kennon and Stephanie are the best captains. Service was outstanding! Looking forward to another trip with you! Thank you!

March 2023

We loved it! The most memorable trip I have taken! Thank you for knowledge and excitement for the Caribbean that you showed us! Until we meet again!

April 2023

Thanks Kennon and Stephanie for making our trip so comfortable and fun. We really were blown away by the level of service and pampering we received. The food we had on the boat far exceeded what we had on land in the restaurants! Kennon was such a great dive master and captain and a better dinghy driver than we have ever seen. Make sure you keep up the signing and mandolin playing, Kennon! Thank you!

May 2023

This crew deserves and yacht deserve a 20, not a 10! The boat was perfect for our group, 3 experienced and 4 non-experienced sailors. The Cat ride was far gentler than the monohull yachts I’ve sailed in the past. Such a great platform for a relaxing sail for everyone aboard. Stephanie and Kennon exceeded ALL expectations. They were always a step ahead of us on everything. They never missed a chance to help or serve regardless of what they had plate at that moment. Kennon was a rock-star regarding the itinerary, he listened to our wish list and made every day happen. Not to leave Stephanie out on this praise, she was also an integral part of our trip schedule. Her suggestions based on experience and knowledge was invaluable.

May 2023

Thank you Stephanie and Kennon for serving up our favorite vacation ever! You are an amazing team. You love the your job and your respect for each other is always evident! We can't imagine going to the BVI's or anywhere on vacation with you. You thought of everything..and then some more. Wish we had more time. Thank you Thank you Thank you

May 2023

Kennon and Stephanie - Beyond! The only word I can say that can capture the pure specialness of this adventure. So many beautiful places above water and under water. It's safe to say we have all been ruined by this perfect sail. Thank you so much for the best birthday ever.

June 2023

Kennon and Stephanie, This has been a week we will remember forever! The absolute perfect vacation. You made us feel so comfortable from the minute we boarded. You are an amazing team. So in sync with each other. I could go on and on about the food...every meal, appetizer and dessert was beyond delicious and beautiful. If they gave Michelin Stars for charter chefs Stephanie would get 3 stars!! You really motivated me to up my game. And Kennon is the best Captain, bartender and napkin folder (thanks for the lesson). We loved our afternoon floating cocktails. Seriously, thank you for everything. Can't wait to sail with you again!

June 2023

Captain Kennon and Chef Stephanie were completely amazing. They were fun, helpful, competent and still managed to be relaxed and help us to really enjoy our time! We got lucky with amazing weather.

June 2023

Kennon and Stephanie, Thanks to you both fo making this such an amazing trip! Everything about this week exceeded our expectations - the views of private coves, the amazing meals, the shared stories and conversations all made it a trip to remember. You two make a great crew and we hope to travel with you again sometime soon!

March 2024

We could not have been any happier! Kennon the captain went beyond our expectations to make sure our drinks were full and our comfort was concern #1. Stephanie's meals were off the hook. She made us feel like we were at home the entire time! Unbelievable! Off the hook! Every morning the crew was up way before we were, making sure the coffee was hot when we came up. The breakfasts were way more then we could have expected! I can't even begin to explain the flavor, the presentation was amazing. Table was set to perfection, napkin folding was always fun to see. I just can't say enough how great it was. We had one of our people that had a aversion to spicy. Stephanie made him a separate version of the same thing we all had to make sure he was happy. She took some food allergies for others and designed the menu around them. Again off the hook! I would put her up against some of the best chefs! We will be hard pressed to find a better crew. They work so well together, totally seamless and effortlessly.
