Sailing | Windsurfing


“Shredding (windsurfing) on Eustatia Sound (showing all those kiteboarders how it’s really done), morning ‘Jerobics,’ and finding out-of-the-way spots in the BVI that no one else has explored.”

How many people can say they’ve circumnavigated the globe, solo, non-stop, on a 32-foot sailboat? Jerome (a Midwest/Michigan transplant) is one of less than 10, an elite club. But more importantly, he is beloved by countless Bitter End guests who have experienced first-hand his love of life, love of watersports and passion for making other people happy. When he was the watersports and activities director at BEYC, there was no request too large or too small. And despite his epic responsibilities for the steward “BEYC Fun,” every now and then Jerome could be found in an Optimist or Bug, or on a Hobie, teaching the next generation how real sailors sail.
