“From our first foot aboard until the last you were both wonderful hosts and such an excellent skipper & chef partnership. You greeted us with a warm welcome that set the tone for the whole holiday …. thank you.
The on-board accommodation was spotless and somehow the colour schemes throughout the cabins and craft maintained the feeling of calm and luxury that the Windward Islands promised … not even the odd choppy crossing put us off – loved the ginger beer tip. Even when it did rain on those few occasions, you quickly ensured we kept dry! Your suggested mooring places were stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to take that ‘first thing in the morning’ dip before getting ready for breakfast. Thanks for the gentle approach to water tubing – you allowed me to go ‘just fast enough’!!
Outdoor space is vast with the cockpit, shaded from the heat of the day, and the upper deck for more panoramic views.
Sleeping accommodations consist of:
1 master cabin with full walk around bed at standard height.
3 VIP guest cabins, each with private en-suite facilities
Mike and Lizzy have been sailing together for nearly 10 years – in fact they met as crew racing on a yacht! Together they have sailed around Greece, through the Dalmatian islands of Croatia, along the picturesque Amalfi coastline of Italy and the timeless French Riviera within the Mediterranean as well as the Leewards Islands, British Virgin Islands and Spanish Virgin Islands of the Caribbean and Bermuda. Most of this time has been enjoyed on charter yachts providing luxury vacations. Welcoming guests aboard with a friendly, warm attitude and an eye for detail they consistently provide holidays of a lifetime for their delighted visitors.
Having sailed from an early age, Captain Mike’s passion for boating in general has gained him a wealth of knowledge on sailing and motor yachts up to 80’ long. He likes to pass on his enthusiasm to everyone on board, encouraging and teaching others more about sailing. Mike has been lucky to have sailed in many areas of Europe and the Caribbean both personally and professionally, including logging over 20,000 Nm in the last 4 years alone as a Captain on crewed yacht charters.
A great sense of humour combined with a professional approach, an open and relaxed manner, not to mention his skills behind the bar, ensures Mike gets all guests to enjoy every moment aboard.
