Will grew up on the water spending summers sailing, fishing, water skiing and wake boarding in Ireland. He began working in the sailing industry at the young age of 16 as an instructor. Each year working his way up the ranks gaining the skills to eventually start teaching learn-to-sail holidays in Greece. He then moved on to be a charter skipper while studying for his degree in Computing. At the time, sailing was a fun summer job. He never thought of it as a full time career until Anna joined him in Croatia.
The dream of working in the Caribbean formed quickly between them but they decided to finish their studies and gain experience in respective fields before taking the plunge. Will took a job as a Graphic Designer for a PR company in London which really taught him what kind of life he wanted to live. He appreciates living on the water everyday and knows how lucky he is to do so! He loves delivering holidays of a lifetime to guests, with many of them becoming lifetime friends.
Anna grew up in Dublin, Ireland. After graduating University she went into education and became a teacher for children with special educational needs. However, her love for cooking kept growing, when Will began working in the charter industry she jumped at the opportunity to go with him and become a chef on board.
Anna always dreamed of attending the world renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School to expand ger culinary skills, which finally became a reality in 2021. The intensive 12 week course taught so many new skills and gave her invaluable experience. Anna plans on studying cooking further this summer in the Ashburton Yacht Chef course. She loves learning new techniques that she can bring into the galley. Her biggest passion is creating food that brings joy to guests and makes their holiday that little bit more special.
Natia was born in Maui, HI and did all her schooling in California. In 2019 she attended the California College of Ayurveda and earned her certificate.
