Captain Jini Lewis and her St. John Dream Weaver sailboat charter will get some game show fame soon. An overnight charter with the Captain will be part of a St. Thomas vacation prize package on The Price is Right, scheduled for Dec. 4.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They were researching sailboats to offer as part of the prize and they saw my Website,Ã¢â‚¬Â says Captain Jini. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am taking the winners on an overnight trip to the BVIÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Captain Jini moved to St. John 17 years ago, and says she never intended to stay.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The original plan was to save enough money to buy a boat and sail around the world, but I ended up having a son. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 11 now and the coolest kid on the planet, but now I have an 8 year exit strategy. As soon as heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in college, I resume the around the world plan.Ã¢â‚¬Â
CBS also needed video of Dream Weaver, and we got the job. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll post it after the show airs. Or, you can Tivo The Price is Right on December 4th.
