Stargazer 's Crew

Captain Darren Jackson, Mate Melissa and Wes Schlack-Stargazer's Crew

Captain Darren Jackson, Mate Melissa and Wes Schlack

Captain Darren Jackson comes from a long line of mariners. He was born and raised on a sailboat in the Caribbean, and sailing since he was 5 years old. At 8 years old he started racing optimists and hasn't stopped since.
His passion for sailing and the water brought him to racing in regattas in the Caribbean for the past three years along with captaining several vessels, including several sailing catamarans and a 65ft Schooner. He looks forward to showing you all the wonders of his home.

Chef/First Mate Melissa DiFilippo grew up in Rhode Island and spent her summers on Cape Cod where she learned to sail. She lived and worked in the Narragansett Bay area for many years, and has a deep-rooted passion for sailing and the sea. She moved from Rhode Island to the Virgin Islands to pursue a dream of working on a charter sailing yacht.

While working for the Conanicut Yacht Club in Jamestown, RI for over eleven years as the Director of Member Services, she continued to develop her knowledge of the sailing community. Interning in the Club's restaurant kitchen under Executive Chef Christopher Kaya, Melissa gained valuable experience which complimented her intuitive cooking talents.

Melissa comes from a family of wonderful cooks. Growing up she learned the basics of using fresh and local ingredients to create delicious meals with a concentration on seafood and local specialties. A versatile cook, Melissa is happy to accommodate the special requests and dietary needs of her guests and has received rave reviews.

Melissa and Darren bring along an extra crew member, Wes Schlack, to ensure that their guests receive top notch service and attention. Wes was born in LA to a military family, which settled in South Dakota where Wes worked on the famiy ranch for 13 years. Tired of ranch life and the small town, Wes joined the Army in search of adventure. Ten years later, Wes left the Army and moved to the Caribbean and took up boating. His work on a passenger submarine awakened a love of the water. He picked up sailing while working for a racing charter company. Six years of island hopping and open water deliveries brought him to Stargazer.

Darren, Melissa and Wes would like to welcome you aboard and show you the best places in the islands to learn, explore, unwind, get excited, or just relax and reconnect with the carefree life.
