Eliot Faust
Program Director

Eliot is currently getting his Masters in International Studies from Johns Hopkins SAIS and is coming back after spending the year studying in China. Starting in 2007, Eliot spent five years enrolled as a student at Sail Caribbean. He enjoyed the friends he made who kept returning each summer. Sail Caribbean really attracted Eliot due to his interest in marine biology from a young age. After participating in a bubble maker program on St. Thomas, he knew he wanted to continue exploring the underwater world. Following his time as an SC student, Eliot then completed the Sail Caribbean Dive Master Internship. Always ready with a funny one-liner, Eliot loves diving at the Fearless and the Indians or sailing to his favorite location of Little Harbor on Peter Island. He will never forget hanging out at the Baths with his core crew of friends who always returned for a summer with Sail Caribbean.

Curtis Crooke

Curtis graduated from Georgetown University in 2017 and began work as a Legislative Correspondent for the Congresswoman to the US Virgin Islands.  But nothing can keep him away from Sail Caribbean.  He is returning for his fourth year as a staff member after sailing for four years as a student and intern, attaining his Divemaster along the way. In addition to diving and sailing, Curtis enjoys traveling (he has been to all fifty state capitals!), watching sports, and hanging out outdoors in warm weather with flip flops and a pair of Chubbies.

Trace Olson
Provisions Manager

Having grown up in Southern California, Trace foolishly decided that she wanted to see what snow was like, so she headed to Colgate University in New York where she earned her Geography and Art History undergraduate degrees while leading backpacking, canoeing, sea kayaking, and bouldering adventures for Colgate’s Outdoor Education program. To skip one of Colgate’s harsh winters, Trace studied abroad in Samoa and Fiji, where she drank at least one coconut a day and made a ton of new friends on volleyball courts. This fall, Trace is excited to start her master’s studies at University College Dublin, but not before recharging her sunshine bank this summer with Sail Caribbean!

Adrian Debrah
Captain of Fidji

Adrian attends the University of Iowa and soon Embry Riddle to study Aeronautical Science. He started sailing at the age of 14 with a Hobie Cat Wave in a small lake behind his house and has been in love ever since the first time he felt the wind catch his sails. He has always had a fascination for the oceans and its awesome inhabitants (especially Spotted Eagle Rays), but he was not satisfied having to be so far away the sea. Enrolled with Sail Caribbean for his first program in 2016, he enjoyed it so much he came back for a second year, and is now beginning his journey as a member of our staff.

Originally from New York, Tim is currently pursuing a BA in Film and Screen Media in Cork, Ireland.

Sail Caribbean opened up a world of exploration to Tim, encouraging him to study abroad in Ireland. After graduation from high school in 2016, a new adventure awaited across the ocean with new friends and opportunity to explore. Tim’s first year in Ireland brought him around the country, travelling with friends and working on films along the way. Tim’s first year film was showcased at the Fastnet Film Festival in Schull, Ireland, and after travelling from Maine to Venice and finishing his second year of college, Tim is excited to return to Sail Caribbean for a familiar and adventurous summer.
