Born and raised in New Jersey, Kelsey spent her childhood sailing all over the east coast of the US. After graduating college, she moved to The Bahamas for a marketing stint. It wasn’t long before she realized she wanted to turn her love of sailing into a career, and set off to South Africa to complete her Yachtmaster. Since then, Kelsey has been cruising her way around the world. Her yachting experience ranges from fun flotilla charters in the Mediterranean to enduring transatlantic crossings. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing, sunny vacation or an exciting ocean adventure, she is excited to welcome you aboard!
Originally from Montana, Mackenzie traded in her small town roots for an array of passport stamps from around the globe. She’s spent time working and learning in restaurants and bars in Australia, Vietnam, and France and held onto the cuisines from every place, from taking cooking classes in Thailand to making meals every evening with her study abroad family in Lyon.
Before working in the Mediterranean, Mackenzie was managing a high end beach club in Bali, where she dealt directly with guests and staff from around the world, providing exceptional service to guests. But when she was offered a position to combine her love of cooking with the challenge of living on the water in Croatia with new people, she jumped at the chance.
Since then, Mackenzie has shared her love of life on the water with guests in Croatia, Montenegro, the Bahamas, Florida as well as the USVIs and BVIs. She loves to connect with her guests and show them a truly unique holiday, and knows that with the help of her dynamite captain Kelsey, everyone will walk away with some amazing memories.
Having trained together in their early days as skipper and host in Croatia, as well as on the waters with guests, Kelsey and Mackenzie are a proven, excellent team and are thrilled to be able to provide you with the best possible vacation throughout the Virgin Islands!
