Denis and LaDonna, a husband and wife team have one goal: for you to have a great vacation.
Denis grew up in France where he started sailing when about 12. In the 70’s and early 80s, competitive sailing was his consuming passion. In 1982 he finished 2nd at the 5o5 French championship in the bay of Mount St. Michel, and 21st at the 5o5 World championship in Cork, Ireland.
Forward twenty years and in 1999, Denis introduced LaDonna to the pleasures of sailing on Kentucky Lake. The next year LaDonna and Denis went on their honeymoon to the British Virgin Islands and had the time of their life. LaDonna loved the sailing and over the next years Denis and LaDonna went on frequent sailing trips and visited the Los Angeles area islands, the San Juan islands north west of Seattle, the Florida Keys, Grenada and of course, the Virgin Islands.
The next logical step was to live full time on a boat. This happened in early 2013, LaDonna and Denis purchased Beagle Knot and refitted it to make it ready for you to visit.
Denis has certification in Coastal and Celestial Navigations and holds a US Coast Guard Captain’s license.
LaDonna is an Intensive Care Nurse, a fabulous organizer, first mate and cook. LaDonna is extremely knowledgeable about sea life and an excellent snorkeling guide. Her collection of sea creature photographs is impressive.
