Meet your Neighbors in St. Croix
Martha Boston and Peter Branning
Avid Sailors and life extraordinaires … Teaching, coaching and inspiring others to live life to their fullest!
For 30 years Martha has been working around the globe with both corporate and individual clients, helping them develop greater insight and skills at communication, relationship-building, decision-making, confidence-building, and so on. She’s worked in Fortune 100 companies, government agencies, nonprofits, and small companies like us at Coldwell Banker St. Croix Realty. She also does what she calls “adventure learning,” where individuals get to do personal development while sailing.
Martha and Peter have a charming love story that started with a business proposition. Martha was searching for a Captain for “Captain Courageous Adventures“- Captain Courageous facilitates unique life-enhancing adventures for your personal, professional and team development.
She received a call from Peter who later became her captain. Peter is a US Coast Guard Captain, and a multi-level sailing instructor certified by the American Sailing Association. He has over 40 years racing, cruising and coaching sailing teams. He is also a commercial pilot, avid free diver and former Miami Beach lifeguard. He holds graduate degrees from the University of Florida and Nova Southeastern University.
Martha and Peter later embarked on a sailing trip from Miami to the Caribbean. Somewhere in-between all of this they fell in love, got married and “swallowed the anchor” in St. Croix! These dirt dwellers purchased their perfect island home in the neighborhood of Green Cay. Despite settling on land, they still strap on their sea legs and spend their days molding the lives of others through their Captain Courageous Adventures on their sailboat, Lightheart.
They also give sailing lessons, charters around the islands and specialty sails that include sunset meditation sails!
St. Croix is lucky to have such great neighbors!
