Co-Owner, Marketing Director, Finance & Yacht Broker
Finding a new found freedom in 2004, Chrystal went looking for adventure. Sailing! That looks like fun! But, where would she start? She didn't know anyone with a sailboat. She signed up for a week-end class at a local community college. The first time on the water and she was hooked! Now what? She still didn't know anyone with a sail boat. She went looking for a boat but found a sailor instead! That's how she met Chris.
Chrystal first came down to the Grenadines in 2008 with Chris – for one month the first year, two months the second year, and four months the third year. Now she's happy to call Grenada and the Grenadines her home and together Chris & Chrystal run LTD Sailing.
Chrystal's background is in Adult Education and Outdoor Leadership. She is an ASA certified sailor, avid kayaker, and PADI certified diver.
Listen for Chrystal on the Grenada Cruisers Net every Friday morning at 7:30 AM, International Channel 66 in Grenada.
She likes Chesney's song: "Call your mom, buy a boat, Drink a beer, sing a song, Make a friend, can't we all get along!"
Co-Owner, Founder, Instructor Evaluator & Yacht Broker
As the son of a son of a sailor, Chris began his first sailing adventure while his dad was stationed in North Dakota with the U.S. Coast Guard. Finding an abandoned little Sunfish and restoring it, he set sail on his own at 13. Since then, he dreamed of bigger horizons and sailed whenever he got the chance. In 2005, Chris says, "I decided to stop dreaming my life and start living my dream!”
After successfully running another sailing school for five years, Chris decided to become his own boss and launched LTD Sailing on 1/3/13. He wanted to use the best boats available, with the best instructors and the best provisioning to provide not just a sailing course but a PREMIERE sailing experience!
In 2014, he became a yacht broker when he realized he spent most of his free time messing about in boats anyway. His certifications include: USCG captain, instructor for ASA 101 - 114, and instructor evaluator.
Chris says “I really love taking people out on the water to share my passion for sailing and the cruising lifestyle. It’s wonderful to see that ‘a-ha’ moment when everything comes together!”

Hi, my name is Dionna. I am a vacation planning specialist with LTD sailing. I live and work in Seattle, Washington and I am lucky enough to call Grenada my second home. I have sailed in the South Pacific, San Juan Islands, the Mediterranean, and of course the West Indies. I might not be at the helm of a sailboat, but I will definitely be on the bow with a cocktail. I love to travel and spend time with my family. They call me the queen of flights; I will always find a good deal!
I originally grew up within a sailor family in Southampton, England. During college I studied Travel and Tourism with a strong belief it would bring adventure to my life. This is where I befriended a British-Grenadian and decided to come out and visit her family one summer. After that, at the age of only 16, I never really returned to the UK, making the dollar by working on yacht charters, deliveries and boat cleaning jobs all over the Caribbean islands and Central America. Eventually, my heart forced me back to Grenada, where I met my now husband, Antonio and we then went on to have our baby girl, Tulie in 2021. Now I am really living my dream, a more settled land-based family life with LTD Sailing as the office manager. My motto is: “Home is where your passport is!”
Hi! My Name is Kashera. I am a born and raised Grenadian. I joined LTD Sailing in 2021 as the Office Assistant. I have never done an ASA class before, but I love preparing the classes to go out and learn about the sailing life since I came part of the LTD Sailing Family which has been an amazing feeling. Just recently I took my first dinghy ride and experienced what it’s like to sail on a catamaran. Everyone at LTD is such remarkable people. During my spare time I love to meditate and, I love to go hiking into nature! I am looking forward to growing my time on the water as my career in sailing unfolds.
Chris’s ability to work with people of all abilities and his easy-going nature make sailing with him both educational and fun. You will achieve your goals working with Chris.
