Hi! I am Jessie Brooks. I am 36 years old and was born in Wyoming while my father worked in a coal mine. Shortly after moved to Encinitas California where I lived until my early twenty's. As an adult I lived many places on the west coast of Washington and Oregon, as well as Hawaii. At age 30 I went back to Coos Bay Oregon and that is were I met Chris and started living with him aboard Chilote. I enjoy art, literature, music, and working in food & customer service. I love people and culture, but most of all I love my family! 

Hi! Im Christopher Joyner, Captain of s/v Chilote which I've owned and operated for 8 years now. I'm a 60 year old pirate born 150 years too late living the American Dream of a sailor. I bummed around the world for years working to survive. Now I have the pleasure of hanging out with Jessie Brooks and Bunny Nellie making an epic journey to USVI St. Thomas. So welcome aboard and spin a yarn with the crew. Discover strange ports, Indian tribes, and all sorts of adventure!

Hi! My friends call me Nellie. My full name is Nelville Livingston da Turd. I am named after the Great Bunny Wailer. I am almost 4 years old and was born in Eureka California. My folks adopted me when I was 3 weeks old and brought me aboard my new home s/v Chilote. I've adapted well to life as first mate with over 1,200 nautical sea miles. My favorite things to do when not sailing are Kung Fu & boxing with dad, cuddling with mom, and eating. I love vegetables like lettuce, cilantro, mint, parsley, and of course carrots!

" I am a citizen of the most beautiful nation on earth, a nation whose laws are harsh yet simple, a nation that never cheats, which is immense without borders, where life is lived in the present. In this limitless nation, this nation of wind, light, and peace, there is no other ruler besides the sea."  -Bernard Moitessier
