Come Join us in the Bahamas

The land of turquoise waters and constant tradewinds, Aritz has been exploring and finding hidden gems around The Bahamas. Bahamas is much more than Paradise Island. Our charters visit exclusive and deserted islands away from tourists, explore the grotto that James Bond was filmed in, visit a bay to swim with turtles, and beach comb on some of the longest sand bars. We fish in the deep waters and serve fresh tuna in our Poke bowls for lunch and Mahi Mahi for dinner. Explore the hiddens beaches and go snorkeling, swim with the pigs, dive and search for sunken airplanes and try your hand at kitesurfing. With Madrigal, you are in for an adventure of a lifetime!

Captain, Aritz Belategi

Aritz lives for sailing and loves to share his passion for the sea with his guests. Born and raised in Spain, he spent his earlier years sailing and teaching kitesurfing around the world. It started with a trip to the Philippines to kite surf but he stayed to build a boat and spent 8 months exploring the island. He then ventured around the globe, exploring and searching for best kitesurfing destinations in the world. After working as a kitesurfing instructor in Morocco, Egypt, Netherlands, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, he realized that the best destinations are accessible only by boat and shifted his focus to becoming a Captain.

Artiz returned to Spain to get his Captain’s License and now has over 10,000 miles under his belt. With 8 Atlantic crossings, 5 as Captain, you could say he loves to sail. He has spent three charter seasons in Greece and three in The Bahamas. Sailing between islands, cays, and secret beaches brings an exclusivity of sailing and exploring to new cultures, that brings him joy. Evenmore so, is his ability to share his love of adventure and sailing with people. He is known as the Captain who will always raise the sails, provide locals insights and help with recommendations and bookings for restaurants. His charismatic personality and energy is addictive, he will have you laughing all day.

Chef/Stewardess Lauren McCullagh

Lauren was raised in Canada- the land of the great outdoors. She grew up loving the water- lifeguarding, wakeboarding, boating and living at her summer house on the lake. After living in NYC and working in digital health strategies, she returned to her passion of working in the outdoors. Lauren is an avid kitesurfer, surfer and sailor. She just completed her first Atlantic crossing!

For the past three years, she has been working as a hostess, crew hand and chef on yachts in both the Bahamas and Greece. Lauren is currently working on a passion project and building an app to help people travel like a local. Stay tuned!

Before working in healthcare, Lauren spent over 8 years working in hospitality both in restaurants and hotels. She is inspired by local ingredients and healthy dishes that focus on fresh and bright flavors. As a kitesurfer, she makes sure our guests have protein packed shakes and vibrant salads and lemon fresh fish to fuel your adventures! Fresh bread for breakfast, picnics on the beach, tapas at happy hour, and 3-course dinners to finish your perfect day on the water.

Deckhand/Kite Instructor Alessandro Piersigilli

Alessandro is an italian sea and wind lover. He’s our kitesurf instructor, photographer and videomaker. During the last four seasons he was traveling around Cyclades, the land of Meltemi, as kite instructor. He started to kite several years ago, and thanks to it he had the opportunity to discover many beautiful places all over around the world. During his trips, he also improved his skills of photography and videomaking, and he will catch all the best moments during our cruises and activities. As Italian tradition wants, he loves cooking many typical Italian dishes too.

Lauren and Aritz

A joint love for kitesurfing was the fate that brought them together. After sailing to Union Island in the Grenadines for a kiting vacation, Lauren met Artiz on “Happy Island”, a small island made of conch shells and inseparable since. They continue to chase small exotic islands, sailing around the world. They have worked as crew for three years in the Dodeconese and Aegean Sea, in Spain and in the Bahamas. But their best adventure, and test of their relationship, was sailing across the Atlantic during COVID this year. :)

This team is here to provide you with an unforgettable trip and memorable experience. Each charter is an unique experience and customized itineraries, menus and activities to our guests requests.
