Martha Boston

Martha grew up in a small town on the dusty plains of west Texas. She was always drawn to the sea, but it took her a while to get there.

From the plains she went to Austin.  There she completed her undergraduate studies and law degree at the University of Texas, and then set up her law practice.  She argued and won a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case at the age of 29, but her truest passion lay in the intersections between mind and heart, and between the inner life and life in the world.

Peter Branning

Peter began sailing on Miami’s Biscayne Bay at the age of 11.  As a youngster, he spent as much time on the water as he could. Before he had left high school, Peter had won several sailing championships and had sailed through the Florida Keys and to the Bahamas - without adult supervision. He learned to dive deep in the water to bring up a lobster or fish, and today he still free dives to 100 feet. Peter is a natural on the sea, and to most people it appears to be an almost mystical connection.

Linwood Paul

Linwood is a fine example of “teaching what you most need to learn.”

He was born into a fully dysfunctional, low-income family. As a young man, his coping strategy was to escape home by doing every good thing outside of it he could find: basketball, baseball, football, track, student council, competitive forensic speaking, while maintaining a straight A average.

He continued engaging in every good thing throughout college, and earned his degree in Radio and Television. Read more.

Corinne is our queen of logistics and support.  She can give you pointers on getting to and from the island, make suggestions about planning extra time in the Caribbean (since you'll be here already, why not see more?), support you through any concerns that arise as you prepare for your adventure, and take care of a million details during the adventure itself.

Corinne came by this role naturally.  Read more.
