Laurie Gumbs

Laurie Gumbs


Captain Laurie Gumbs was raised on the water. Born in Sandy Ground, Anguilla, Laurie grew up with the sea at his front door. He comes to sailing naturally as his father and many uncles were captains and sailors on some of the most historic Caribbean sailing vessels.

For Laurie, owning and captaining a vessel like Tradition has been a lifelong dream and given his sailing forefathers, perhaps even his destiny. He knows the history of the islands, has wonderful and engaging stories of the people, and great experience on the water.

A professional in the hospitality business (Laurie owns The Pumphouse, a world-famous restaurant and rocking roadhouse in Sandy Ground), Laurie knows how to treat his clients with excellent service and outstanding charm.

Deborah Vos

First Mate

While growing up on a large grain farm in Northern Alberta, First Mate, Deborah Vos, was constantly filled with dreams of wind against canvas and a wide open sea. With no sailing opportunities in the wilderness of the North, Deborah took every opportunity to canoe, kayak and swim in the rivers around her home.

In 2008, her long held sailing dream became a reality when she joined the sail training tall ship, Picton Castle, for a year long circumnavigation around the Atlantic. Making the transition from pollywog to shellback, Deborah learned the ropes onboard a traditional tall ship and never looked back.

She fell in love with blocks, with lines, with the pure joy of hauling sail. While modern yachts have some appeal, Deborah’s heart is with classic boats like Tradition.

Brennon Gumbs

Our favorite onboard curmudgeon and deckhand, Brennon Gumbs has been sailing for a few years. A quiet guy who tries to hide his huge heart behind his comically gruff exterior, Brennon is very dedicated to ensuring guests have an unforgettable experience on board, Tradition. Once he gives you his famous smile, or a taste of his dry wit, you’ll be a Brennon fan for life!

Luxury and Adventure.
