THE CREW

Captain Laurent Geslin
Laurent grew up in Paris, France. Urban life did not deter this water baby, who learned to swim and sail a Laser 420 as a child, and to scuba dive at the age of 12, with level three qualifications at 16 years old. He moved to Switzerland when he was 22 years old, purchased a Laser 2, and spent all his free time trimming the sails on Lake Geneva.

In 2015, Laurent and his wife Astrid decided it was time for a life change.
They bought a catamaran and set off to sail the Mediterranean Sea. They skimmed past Gibraltar in 2016, spent two months in the Canary Islands and three months in the Cap Verde Islands before crossing the Atlantic.
It was love at first sight when they reached the Caribbean, and they’ve decided to stay for quite a while.


Chef Astrid Geslin
Astrid had an enchanting childhood. She grew up with her brother and sister close to Luzern, in the heart of Switzerland, near the Alps

Astrid is always happy to receive guests and share moments of discovery and joy.
“Every charter is a rewarding, new, enriching experience made of encounters, good humor and fun,” says Astrid. “I speak fluent French, English and German, some Italian and Spanish. I try to welcome our guests in their own language and make them feel at home. I’m passionate about fine food from all over the world. My recipes are inspired from Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, but always with a French touch.”

While Astrid’s cooking consistently earns rave reviews, guests needn’t worry about gaining a couple of extra pounds.
Astrid enjoys leading a workout, from on-deck yoga to a lap around the yacht, to a go on the water toys.
And fun is always her leading motivator.

THE FOOD

Do you get excited about food?  Prepare to be excited! When you charter with Isolablue you get the Award Winning Chef Astrid.
Here’s someone with a passion for food, it’s origins, presentation and all it’s possibilities.
Astrid’s gourmet creations are looked forward to as much as the next island on the itinerary.
Her creative energy flows through everything from appetizers to dinners.


Food. Art. Treat yourself to a gastronomic event.

Testimonials

Many thanks for making our dream a reality.
This trip with you was simply magical, and in addition to discovering new paradise islands, we met two very beautiful people, and enjoyed every anecdote or experience you shared with us, just like the culinary delights of the Chef! We are already longing to come back for new adventures around Antigua.

Good luck and see you soon, Pascale & Christine

 

Arriving on Isolablue, it’s as if we arrive in the extension of our house.
Laurent and Astrid welcome you with such kindness and considerate care that after 5 minutes you feel at home!
Appetizers, main course, desserts, all the dishes follow each other like in a gastronomy restaurant except that the terrace has a view …. on the turquoise sea ….
Through the sharing and confidences, adventures under and on the water, crashes of drones, aborted battles of Pancakes, wet rides on Junior, rum punch, the links are tightened to reach all the same conclusion: L & A, you are MAGNIFICENT full of KINDNESS, GENEROSITY, WILLINGNESS of SHARING and LOVE to the Others.

Difficult not to repeat oneself, but we thank you very much for this beautiful trip to the Caribbean. From Martinique to Petit St. Vincent and back to St. Vincent, it was a wonderful trip to the rhythm of the Caribbean. Breakfast, diving, sailing, swimming, paddle, without forgetting the sacred time of the nap and after this the aperitif. We leave the head full of memories for the days of grayness in Switzerland.
Cocktail for a successful holiday: Good mood
Tuna and Mahi Mahi, Rum, Nap, Diving,
Good little dishes, Hugs E&G
