Lavonne Brown

Affectionately known as “V,” Lavonne grew up in the Carolinas, enjoying and exploring rivers and the Appalachian Mountains. Later she fell in love with all things ocean – sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling – adventuring, and traveling after moving to Key West, Florida, over 18 years ago, where she lived aboard her monohull sailboat, Restless Ketch, for 6 years.

While cruising the Caribbean, she explored Belize’s azure waters and spectacular marine “rainforests” and slowly made it her seasonal home. She enjoys sharing her love of the sea, her passion for life, and the invaluable experiences she has gained over the years – everything from child counseling to teaching scuba diving as a PADI-certified instructor to working in restaurants and working with animals. She has done it all!

Lavonne has her RYA/MCA Yachtmaster License, USCG Captain’s License, and ASA Instructor Certificate. For those of you interested in learning how to sail, she can’t wait to help you complete your ASA Sailing Certification Courses!

V looks forward to meeting you, showing you the freedom and relaxation that only “being at sea” provides, and treating you to all the wonderful experiences Belize offers.
