Captain Forrest Shropshire, American

Originally from Georgia, Forrest holds a 1600-ton U.S. Coast Guard Open Ocean License, the equivalent of the UK�s 3000- on Master�s License. He has been cruising the waters of the Caribbean and the U.S. East Coast for more than thirty years,and takes great pleasure in showing guests his favorite destinations.

His dedication to fishing means you are almost guaranteed some fresh mahi mahi or tuna during your cruise.

Chef Cathleen Trafton, American

Cathleen Trafton grew up in New England and spent all of her summers on the coast of Maine. Once she had graduated from university, she moved all around the United States. She went as far south as Florida, as far north as Alaska, and finally settled in Santa Barbara, California, where she raised her family. From there she went abroad to live between Antigua and France, where she honed her skills in applying unique cultural elements to the classically-trained cooking techniques she first acquired at Cordon Bleu. Since those first days in cooking school in Paris, she knew that she would always enjoy working in unique culinary situations - from commercial kitchens, to remote mountain huts, to the galley on Melinka. Cathleen has continued to bring the farm-to-table concept with her, keeping healthy eating in mind while never sacrificing quality ingredients or proper technique.

Cathleen has been working on sailing vessels for the past 20 years and still can not get enough of the fresh air and sea. Her food is an expression of art and she looks forward to seeing you on board to taste the culinary delights that so many have enjoyed over the years while at sail.
