show hide Q&A



Q: Where’s your favourite boating destination? The place and day that comes to mind is when we where moored in Saint Lucia at the Pitons and the Maltese Falcon sailed along our starboard side and dropped anchor right next to us, Wow what a rush !

Q: What’s your funniest experience? A member of my crew fell out of the dingy heading to shore, she thought she was drowning until somebody told her to stay calm and stand up cause the water was only 3 feet deep. It saved her life.

Q: What are your sailing ambitions? What’s the next challenge? Being a true professional yacht charter team is both ambitious and challenging..... and here we go !

Q: What’s your worst boating experience? Dislocated my (Captain) shoulder on the 2nd day of a charter, no Doc, no hospital, had to suck it up and push through it .......and I did.

Q: Gin and Tonic in a beautiful anchorage or trimming the sails to get an extra half knot? Whatever the guests prefer is fine with us.

Q: How long have you been boating and what made you start? The Captain has been sailing for 41 years, started at his local sailing school and the hostess has been sailing for 25 years, started soon after they met and really got the bug when we started bareboat chartering.

Q: What is it about being on the water that makes you tick? It's about the Salt.....in the air.....in the water.....how it stings your eyes........the taste on your lips...... Enough said !

Q: What’s your favourite boating experience? To get our feet wet We acted as a true professional yacht charter team on our carribbean bareboat charters. We Loved the trill of the accomplishment of leading and serving our guests every day, truly our pleasure to do so.
