About us

The founder of "No Bad Days" Caribbean Sailing Vacations, and the owner of the catamaran "Shanties", Jack Reschke, has over 30 years of cruising experience.

His latest adventure was as the skipper of  67 feet sailing boat in South America as he led a crew through the Patagonia Channels from Puerto Mont to Puerto Williams in Chile, and successfuly rounded the Cape Horn, every sailor's dream. He also sailed from France across the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean and then to Australia. 

Jack's cruising experiences also include time spent on the North Sea, Caribbean and The Mediterranean. 

He has sailed over 80,000 nautical miles on many different sailing vessels.

Jack is a very experienced skipper. He has a US Coast Guard 100 Ton Master License, South African Yachtmaster Ocean License, and the Polish Yachtmaster Ocean License. He is also a NAUI certified Scuba Diver.

Jack has been a sailing instructor for junior yacht club programs for many years, which has prepared him well to make learning how to sail on "Shanties" easy and fun.

Jack's past life was as a professional electrical engineer, however his passion has always been sailing. Five years ago he gave up his engineering consulting career in Chicago, bought the catamaran Shanties, and has since then been running a very successful charter business with nearly full bookings every season. His clients include both sailors and people who have never sailed before from various countries around the world.

With all his skills and experience, Jack promises to make your Caribbean sailing vacation a "No bad Days" experience.
