Meet the Alternative Latitude Catamaran Crew
- Captain Steve & First Mate Janet

Alternative Latitude CatamaranCaptain Steve Van Wig grew up sailing and racing small sailboats and surfing the southern California waters. He delivered race boats as crew on deliveries and has crewed and raced off California, Mexico and Hawaii. Discovering windsurfing at 17 was followed by 25 years of passionately chasing windsurfing all over California, Baja Mexico, Maui and Oregon. Steve has owned boats most of his life, including beach cats, ski boats and pocket cruisers. Since 2007 he has been sailing, cruising and living aboard a Whitby 42ft ketch that Janet and he rebuilt from the keel up. He has been chartering for the last few years in the BVis in winter and the Grenadines for summer. Sailing seasonally between these two destinations allows them to enjoy and explore the Caribbean island chain twice a year as they move the boat back & forth.

After  spending 15 years in the restaurant industry, Steve opened and ran 2 successful businesses while living in the Colombia River Gorge, Oregon for 19 years, one a furniture outlet and the other a fiberglass shop involved with the windsurfing industry. Steve enjoys meeting new people and showing them the joys of seeing things from the water side of life. He loves to cook and is always in the galley whipping up delicious snacks and healthy and hearty meals that his past charter guests rave about. No one goes hungry with Steve in the galley. Steve and Janet’s love of sailing and years of experience sailing equates to safe and fun boat handling.  You might find either one at the helm while the other is inside whipping up something yummy to eat or drink.

Steve currently holds a USCG 50 Ton Masters license. In addition to a STCW marine safety, fire and  first aid rating. He also holds a USCG Sailing and towing endorsements.  Steve is a kite surfing instructor and pretty much a fanatic about chasing lobsters ;>)

Janet (who is Dutch) grew up in a family passionate about sailing. Since her father was a merchant marine and a competitive racer, it was only a matter of time she was following in his foot path. She has gone from dingy sailing and Hobie cat racing in the North Sea to recently delivering new cruising yachts in Europe and across the Atlantic. As an active member of the sailing club, she has been involved in organizing national regattas and social activities while remaining active as racing crew.
Her love for sailing and kite surfing made her travel to a good chunk of Europe, South America and the States while working in the insurance industry to pay for these adventures. On one of her kite-surf vacations to the States, she met Steve and the sailing adventures continued living on their own boat, cruising and working term charters in the Caribbean Islands. She has always been a multi-tasker, handy when swapping from hostess to crew and back. Her goal is to give everybody an unforgettable time, showing you the most beautiful places in the Virgin Islands. If it’s the out of the way quiet anchorage with amazing snorkeling or the hopping bars on one of the whitest beaches, Janet and Steve will make it happen for you.
