Captain: Jeremy Fletcher [Jez]
Jez is an MCA/IYT master of yachts (unlimited) with years of charter experience. Calm, endlessly patient and quietly humorous, he enjoys introducing his guests to both the secluded tranquil anchorages and the lively harbourside spots that he loves. He has recently captained both a North Sea/Baltic Sea crossing as well as an Atlantic crossing, and looks forward to repeating both voyages this year.
His enjoyment of the sea includes exploring below the surface as an experienced PADI recreational diving instructor, as well as a keen technical diver with both IANTD and TDI qualifications teaching qualifications. His love of travel has taken him from his native England to places as diverse as Russia, Mexico, Hong Kong, Italy, France, Spain, Egypt, Israel, the Caribbean and Australia, and he takes pleasure in sharing travel experiences with his guests.
Jez and Caro are a warm, friendly, close-knit team who take great pleasure in working together in all aspects of their jobs. They love being able to treat their guests to their special brand of hospitality, experience and attentiveness to create the conditions for a wonderful, stress-free and fun-filled holiday.
Chef: Caro Uy
Caro is an award-winning charter chef who is passionate about both good food and the sea. She grew up in a family dedicated to the pleasures of the table, and has been a hardened restaurant habitu?e since she was an infant. As an adult, she has had over fifteen years of experience in various aspects of the gourmet food industry. Although originally qualified as a graphic designer, these days she expresses her creative energy in preparing fresh, seasonal cuisine to spoil her guests; she also enjoys the challenge of creating menus to suit special dietary restrictions. Her repertoire is based on French classical technique, but the flavour variations reflect her travels through Mediterranean Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Persia, Israel, Mexico and parts of South-east Asia. Her other great love is the water: Caro is also a PADI dive instructor and has introduced people to the underwater world in the Canary Islands, the Sinai and the Costa Brava. Bubbly and endlessly curious, she loves meeting new people and listening to their stories.
Deckhand: Jonty Marais
Self-motivated, industrious and conscientious, Jonty is a valuable crew member with an excellent work ethic and guest service skills.

Throughout the busy charter season, not only does he keep the decks immaculately clean and assist in any water sports activities but he also maintains a professional work attitude and boasts a very cheerful and friendly personality which are all highly valued by the guests.
