Crew Comments

We both have a love of life, sunshine and sailing, it is the desire to enjoy all these things in one beautiful setting that attracted us to the BVI and charter yacht industry.

Stu and Becky owned a racing yacht in their home town of Ramsgate in Kent, famous for the treacherous Goodwin Sands and strong tidal streams, cruised and raced the English Channel, and visited the French, Belgian and Dutch coastal towns for several years, all year round. Taking this experience but leaving behind the occasionally Arctic temperatures and somewhat “in-teresting and stimulating” sea conditions and moving themselves to enjoy the Caribbean climate and more relaxing sailing conditions has proved to be an excellent move.

“Joie de Vivre” - the enjoyment of life. Both Becky and Stu love what they do and work well as a team. They look forward to making sure that your holiday is everything you want it to be and will go out of their way to ensure you have an unforgettable experience.
