What started as a desire to sail the islands has turned into something a little more meaningful. I decided to take this opportunity and help the environment by spending some time collecting plastics from above and below the surface. Wanting my friends to visit, I decided to get a four cabin catamaran and name her Nova Satus, Latin for “New Beginnings”. Now my plan is to sail the islands of the Caribbean, with my friends joining us when they can, and experience everything the islands have to offer. Along the way, I'll help save marine life... one beach at a time.


Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

The Crew


Stan Jones

Stan Jones

Stan's love of the ocean started as a child during the annual family vacations to Myrtle Beach. He learned to sail during college, taking Hobiecats out on Woodlake in Virginia where his brother lived. He began scuba diving in the 90's and became a certified rescue diver in 2006. In 2011 he took a sailing vacation to the BVI that would set his life on the path he's on now. Upon his return he began ASA sailing classes completing the 101, 103, 104, and 114 that would give him the experience he needed for this new adventure. As for his work life, Stan worked in call centers since 1992 and he slowly climbed the ranks until he was able to quit for good in February of 2018. Now, finally, he lives where he once vacationed!

The Story


Stan Looking at Sunset

I was where many are now - trading each day of my life for money in an attempt to live a life I didn't have time for. It’s not that the work was difficult, it’s that it wasn't rewarding; and somehow trading 49 weeks of my life to be able to "vacation" for 3 seemed like a terrible trade off. So... I decided to make a change.

I bought a catamaran, refitted it for our adventure and set sail for the islands! We invite you to be a part of this, too, by following along as we help save marine life one beach at a time!
