What is your motto ?


Your sailing style ?

I love the water, the sea, meetings others. I'm always happy to take my crew out for a snorkelling trip, or a stroll on a huge beach, but I also enjoy an aperitif as the sun sets and have a good meal together.
Above all, I am welcoming. I like to make sure my guests feel at ease and at home, and they leave with memories and images to remember during those long winter months! I manage my sailboat but you can always participate in the sailing manoeuvres, if you feel like it.

How do you handle the life on board ?

I explain, the crew participates in sailing manœuvres

How does shopping work?

I take care of supply on board

How does cooking work?

I cook

How did you become skipper ?

I have been sailing for the last 15 years or so, always in the water or on the water! After a first professional life as an engineer, I wanted to change my profession and change my life. Enjoying the most beautiful spots on the earth, exploring all these little corners by the sea, as many cravings and ingredients as I wanted to find in my future profession. I passed the skipper's certificate exams and decided to start my own cruise business "

Your best cruise memory

To help discover and discover Barbuda with a group of cheerful customers who knew how to marvel at the incredible scenery we saw, and who let themselves be carried away by the timeless atmosphere that immediately engulfed us.

In your opinion, what makes for a successful cruise ?

A successful cruise is above all a meeting, an exchange, but it can also be long, quiet hours, enjoying the most remote corners of the Caribbean, or kitesurfing every day for the more sporty travellers.
It is sometimes enough to just eat well and have a good holiday in a beautiful setting :)

Your worst cruise memory ?

I've looked long and hard but I found none!
