Chef Sara Nelson
Chef Sara hails from the farmlands of North Dakota. Although her former years were spent on a landlocked farm, she spent the majority of her childhood summers at her family’s lake cabin in Northern Minnesota and fell completely in love with being on the water. Just 3 years ago she decided to turn her passion into reality and leave her career in sales to live an adventurous life at sea – trading in miles of pounding the pavement for miles of exploring the open ocean.
Sara has traveled all over Europe inspiring her new life as chef and first mate on many different yachts in Greece, Croatia, the Bahamas, and Italy (Sardinia & Corsica). Eventually she made her way to the beautiful crystal blue waters of the Virgin Islands. She’s so grateful for her travels and experiences around Europe, but is truly thrilled to call Tellstar and the Virgin Islands her new home.
Sara earned a Yacht Chef certificate from the Super Yacht Culinary Academy in Cape Town, South Africa. She loves cooking almost as much as she loves eating. Her farm roots inspire made from scratch recipes and her work ethic is demonstrated by her enthusiasm in the galley. She loves working with farmers on island to incorporate local produce as well as sourcing sustainably caught fish from local fisherman.

The next few years of his life were spent traveling throughout Central America. Upon completing high school, Jake stumbled onto his first job in the yachting industry as Deck/Stew onboard luxury sailing catamarans. Jake has now been working aboard charter yachts for 3 years and it the ultimate crew member. He is friendly, charismatic and the guests are always his number one priority. He is a master mixologist, loves to take guests on snorkeling adventures and you will often find him at the helm driving the boat while Captain Jack runs around on deck! He really is a jack of all trades!

Stewardess Blake Hirschey

In search of a summer job, she stumbled upon a position as a Hostess and Mate on a small sailing vessel in the Mediterranean. A position she enjoyed for 3 summer seasons and decided to turn into a career.

Let’s start by mentioning this incredible vessel. Perfect design and excellent workmanship. Made everyone envious. Then the crew. They made the best, even better. Lively Captain Jack leads one of the best teams on the ocean. Attentive service, safe hands, a wonderfully authentic experience. Jaimey’s highest quality and creative menu means we are leaving with a few extra pounds but it’s well worth it, everything was outstanding and she’s an amazing anchor girl too! Jake is the man! He should be up for the next James Bond. A true gentleman and always engaged in his mission to take care of us all, at all times. A wonderful experience on a badass yacht with our dearest and industry leaders Captain and crew.

Our vacation/graduation experience on the Tellstar was FANTASTIC! Could not have been any better, seriously, it was AWESOME! Captain Jack, Jamie & Jake were very accommodating and made our trip memorable forever! The food was AWESOME! The crew did up and beyond all expectations.
Past Customer, April 2019
If you are looking for someone to trust your dream vacation to, look no further than Captain Jack and Jaimey! TellStar is an incredible vessel. Jack is a terrific captain and entertainer and Jaimey’s meals are out of this world. What an incredible week of hiking, snorkelling, exploring, sailing and terrific history lessons along the way. Great memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you!
Past Customer , March 2019
No need to answer the individual questions! I rate everything as a 5. The boat was brand new so everything was in perfect shape. The crew was outstanding. They were knowledgeable, fun and all-around great people. The food was wonderful. All the meals were great and the appetizers ( killer ceviche) were top notch. The crew planned a great tour of the BVI. We had fun places to stop and hike, great diving for Maggie, and wonderful spots for the rest of us to snorkel and play. Overall the Tellstar experience exceeded expectations.
Past Customer, June 2018
Just spent an amazing week with Jack and Jaimey. The most gracious hosts, amazing food, incredible knowledge of the BVI’s, and constant source of jokes and stories. Can’t recommend them enough…the answer is always YES!
Jack W, April 2018
Split Second was spotless, the flybridge upper deck was our favourite hangout. Jack and Jaimey are a phenomenal team. The itinerary was perfect and they made it fun. As a former restaurant owner, with 35 years in the industry, I would have hired Jamie in a heartbeat but I know I could never match the view she has from her kitchen. She is talented, precise, and her food presentation is out of a magazine, while ALL being made from scratch, right down to the hamburger buns. The seasoning flavours and textures are unbelievable, especially for a self-trained chef, and she is also a dam good sailor. There are only 2 words; 5 stars. Thanks for all your help arranging the charter, it was a wonderful vacation. If I can ever stop talking about it, I will most likely be booking again.
