About Phil and Laura

Captain Phil is the owner of Storm Petrel. He has been chartering in the Caribbean and Cape cod since 1992. He is a USCG licensed captain, speaks German, some French and Spanish. He has lived in Guadeloupe, Switzerland, and wherever Storm Petrel takes him. The co-owner and co-captain of Storm Petrel is Laura, an RN for over 25 years. She loves cooking, sailing, and fishing, and has been Phil's charter partner for the past 9 years.

Phil and Laura purchased this boat in 1990

Why Phil and Laura chose North Falmouth

Phil is a native Bostonian, and knows these waters well. From Falmouth, the sail can take you across Buzzards Bay to the Elizabeth Islands, Cuttyhunk, or longer sails can go to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. In the winter, St Thomas is easily accessible by commercial flights. Red Hook is at the east end of the island, and an ideal starting point for your charter vacation. The US Virgin Islands of St John and St Croix are an easy trip, and the beautiful British Virgin Islands are not more than a few hours sailing away.

What makes this boat unique

The ultimate way to traverse the Islands is by boat, drifting from one island to the next, sleeping under a million stars. Chartering Storm Petrel allows you to create your own schedule, with no ferries to catch, and no rush to check out of a hotel in the morning.  She can take you to places only accessible by boat, and you always have a waterfront room! Storm Petrel is a safe and comfortable sailboat. She makes her yearly trips to the US Virgin Islands for the winter, to Cape Cod for the summer, for chartering in both locations.

Storm Petrel review

  • 5 of 5
I could not have been happier over the whole experience. The boat was lovely and handled beautifully, especially under sail. Phil and Laura were warm, helpful, funny, delightful companions, and expert sailors. Laura is a superb and innovative chef, producing miracles from her tiny galley. I'd forgotten how peacefully one sleeps aboard a sailboat, and the wonderful motion they have underway. A truly memorable week, one I would gladly repeat.

What a GREAT sailing adventure!

  • 5 of 5
My wife & I bareboat often from Greece to the Caribbean. We are familiar with life aboard a sailboat. But the high tides and strong currents in the New England area made us want to charter a sailboat with an experienced Captain. And what a success it was to find Captain Phil and 1st Mate Laura! They were both terrific! Phil threw me the charts and tide books and allowed me to participate as much as I wanted to . And Laura totally surprised me day after day with some of the best food ever-including such items as "ship-made" crab cakes, homemade chutney sauce, and even homemade bread pudding (made especially for me). In short order, Phil & Laura became sailing buddies and my wife & I had days of fun laughing and learning about the waters Nantucket Sound. We plan to sail with them soon, perhaps on a voyage exploring the Spanish Virgin Islands.

Storm Petrel

  • 5 of 5
Phil was a great host and made the trip custom to my wants and needs. If I had a specific request for an anchorage, dinner, or activity, Phil was ready to accomodate. If I asked for suggestions, Phil offered several choices and matched them to our likes. We could change at will. It was awesome not to be stuck on a schedule like some of those big cruises. I want this to be MY vacation, not to be told I have to be a certain place at a certain time.

I've cruised with Phil 5 or 6 times over the years and always had an great time. The quarters are comfortable, the fare amazing. If you don't have a good time with Phil on Storm Petrel - it's your own fault.

In the cape, we saw whales, caught bluefish, stopped lobsterboats with 4 pound lobsters and ate them, rented bikes on Nantucket, went to Carly Simon's digs (Hot Tin Roof) on Martha's Vineyard, enjoyed the culture shock that is P-Town, visited the small windowed bar housing The Perfect Storm in Glouscester. Truly an unforgettable trip.

If you prefer to dine out, Phil knows just about everyone in every port by name. He can recommend good food, bars, dancing. You name it. He's a built in tour guide.
