Crew profile

Captain: Adam Hughes (UK)
Chef/Mate: Rosie Kirk (UK)

Rosie and Adam met in Croatia whilst both working as Yacht Captains. Their personal and professional relationships blossomed and they became the ultimate Crewed Yacht Team.

Captain: Adam Hughes
Adam grew up in Lancashire and was lucky to get into Dinghy Sailing from a young age. After completing his degree in International Computer Science, he soon realized that “office life” was not for him. Adam enjoyed the outdoor life and worked as a Watersports Instructor in the Mediterranean. Adam moved into the yachting industry in 2015 and worked as a Captain and Yacht Team Manager. He spent many years combining his summers working on yachts with winters’ managing hotels and bars in European Ski resorts. His love of cocktails blossomed here.

Chef/Mate: Rosie Kirk
Rosie lived in Cowes, Isle of Wight, the home to UK sailing and therefore has been very fortunate to spend all of her life on the water. Rosie studied Fashion at University, however, was always drawn back to the sea! After Rosie completed her Yachtmaster Offshore in 2017, she decided to take a few months out of her office job to work as a Yacht Captain in Croatia, this was the moment Rosie knew a career in Yachting was for her! Rosie attended Professional Yacht Chef Training at Ashburton Chefs Academy and now uses her creativity in her food where she loves to use fresh and local ingredients whenever she can. During COVID times Rosie kept herself busy with a 16-week online pastry course and went on to write and publish her first cookbook app “Baking on Boats”.

Rosie and Adam have been sailing the BVI since 2019 and now fondly call it home. They love to combine their love of adventure and passion for food which then creates an unforgettable experience for all guests who choose to travel with them.
