The Moorings 5800

Harry, Martha & Candace

The Ships and Giggles team, can’t wait to welcome you to the BVIs

Harry is an enthusiastic skipper, who has spent most of his life working in some capacity on the water, with experience of working on private and charter yachts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean (where he’s also built a reputation as a skilled mixologist!). He’s a keen competitor as well, having raced in dinghies, small and large keelboats and achieved top ten results at national, European and international levels. Recently, he has also assisted with deliveries, including a transatlantic crossing.

Martha is an accomplished chef, having begun her career when she was only in her teens as a junior chef at an award-winning restaurant, she then went on to complete her professional training at the highly regarded Ashburton Chefs Academy. She offers a level of haute cuisine usually only reserved for superyachts. She has extensive experience cooking a large range of different cuisines but has an extra flare for Mediterranean, gluten free and vegan cooking. Martha is also a keen sailor and has completed an Atlantic crossing.

*If unforeseen circumstances prevent this crew from hosting your charter, another competent crew will substitute.
*A Moorings 5800 will be crewed by a professional captain and gourmet chef. For charters with more than 8 guests, an additional steward/ess may be provided, however this is subject to availability.
