CYS Cutting Board Award

Crewed Yacht Chefs Win at Charter Yacht Society Awards

What better place to showcase the best Crewed yachts in the Caribbean than in the cruising paradise of the British Virgin Islands? Every year the non-profit Charter Yacht Society (CYS) kicks off the new charter season by hosting an impressive 4-day yacht show event at Nanny Cay Resort and Marina. 2018 marked the 37th Charter Yacht Show hosted by the BVI Charter Yacht Society.

This event was especially noteworthy for The Moorings and their Crewed yacht charter crews, as for the second year in a row some of our Crewed yacht chefs won awards for their culinary skills. They are:

Best Dish Overall—Khalila Bartley aboard Moorings 5800 “Laurel Lee”

Winner Best Appetizer—Khalila Bartley aboard Moorings 5800 “Laurel Lee”

Winner Best Lunch Entrée—Leah Wheeler aboard Moorings 4800 “Second Star to the Right”

Best Dessert—Khalila Bartley aboard Moorings 5800 “Laurel Lee”

Crewed Yacht Chefs Win at Charter Yacht Society Awards

In 2016 one of our own – Chef Rebecca Evans of the 4800 yacht Graham’s Port – also took home the “CYS 2016 Best Appetizer Award” for a yacht under 60 feet. Her winning appetizer was a creative dish of pickled local watermelon served with Anegada lobster, homemade brioche and fig confit.
