Growing up on Long Island, New York, Austen was a shoe in-for the sailing life. At the age of eight, he would sail across Northport Bay to visit the town’s general store as he was too young to drive. At the age of ten, he became involved with competitive sailboat racing and soon became an Optimist class national champion. Since then, he has gone on to many other classes of sailboats and filled skipper, crew and coaching roles. After graduating from Hobart William Smith College, where he captained the sailing team, he decided to work and live in the Virgin Islands for a year. There he learned the ins and outs of island life — as well as the be...

Hi Austen,
A quick note to say thanks very much for taking great care of the Shipley’s. They had a fantastic time - Charley stated, “it was the best vacation I ever had.” Hard to beat!! He was fairly effusive in his praise, "Austen and Philly were excellent, food was fabulous, everything was fabulous."
Thanks again for all of your hard work.

We had a blast and what a great cruise aboard Vicarious!

The Vicarious is a 48' Leopard catamaran built in 2016, the big cat is very well kept, clean and certainly a very seaworthy boat. Captain Austen and his first mate (and fiance') Philomena were great hosts, very accommodating, fun and super easy to get to know and get along with. Austen is a young man but a very accomplished sailor, eviden...

Austen and Phily gave us the vacation we’d long dreamed of. We spent a week with them sailing around St. John. They knew all the right places to go to give us a range of experiences, including great snorkeling, a day in near total seclusion, a gorgeous hike, and a cove where we wound up swimming with two dolphins. (That last part requires the dolphins to actually decide to do that, so…zero guarant...
