Crew Profiles:

In 2017, Paul and Alexa unknowingly began an adventure of a lifetime when they met working for Broadreach as a sailing instructor and scuba diving instructor respectively. During that summer season, they sailed up and down the Southern Caribbean leading groups of 13-17 years olds from all around the world. When parting ways after that summer, they knew somehow it was fate that they would come together again somewhere in the Caribbean. Since then, the couple relocated to Bequia running sailing charters on their own yacht and freelancing for various charter companies in the region.

Captain Paul was born in the UK but was raised all over the globe. From living in South Korea to the Devon countryside, his fascination with travel and other cultures began quite early on. When his family settled in Brixham, Paul and his father bonded through sailing. Soon that hobby became a passion and that passion became a career. In 2015, Paul broke free of his mundane English lifestyle and sailed across the Atlantic after answering an advert in the newspaper. With a group of three others, he sailed from the Canary Islands and landed in the Southern Caribbean. After exploring each of the diverse islands, Paul made Bequia his home where he captained numerous yachts from a classic 100ft wooden schooner to posh motor yachts (and his own catamaran Cataja). In his spare time, Paul volunteered for the Bequia Junior Sailors which encouraged young people to expand their knowledge and skills within the historical sailing community in the Grenadines. In 2019, Paul transitioned to freelance and captained a variety of boats throughout the Caribbean islands. Prior to his journey in the sailing world, Paul climbed the hospitality ladder. He worked in a variety of hotels, bars, and restaurants which eventually earned him a general manager role for several years in the UK.

Chef Lexy was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York but as an island girl at heart making annual trips to the Caribbean as a child, the sea has always felt like home. While living in New York City, Lexy had a career in event planning and marketing which she continued when she relocated to St. Vincent & the Grenadines working for the Bequia Beach Hotel. After a year behind the desk and the sea right outside her office door, Lexy quit her 9-5 to pursue her career as a yoga instructor and started her own company, Wild Thing Wellness. Alongside her yoga teaching career, Lexy acted as first mate & chef aboard, Cataja and freelancing with Paul on multi-day charters throughout the Southern Caribbean. As your chef, Lexy's tailored menus reflect her passion for creating meals that are healthy, fresh, and delicious. “Coming from a multicultural household my understanding of food has always been interlinked with company. So I’m so excited to prepare delicious food for guests to enjoy as they spend quality time together in some of the most beautiful cruising destinations in the world.” Each dish fuses luscious local flavors with global inspiration, and are truly prepared with love. Some of the best memories are shared around a table with good wine, good food, and good company and Lexy is excited to curate those memories for you!

As innate adventurers and people-people, Paul and Lexy's passions for travel and hospitality come together magically through the yachting industry. The pair have made the Caribbean their home for the past few years and they are so excited to share all their hidden gems during your time together. “We really put in the effort to make all our guests feel like family while they’re aboard they’re home away from home. Through sharing our love for food, sailing, island exploring, and even giving the little ones a turn on the helm, we create a high-end atmosphere that is also authentic and true to us so our guests truly enjoy a slice of paradise aboard Felicia!”
