Captain: Mark Duncan
Having sailed since a teenager and fished and hiked from a young age, I have a passion for the outdoor life. Always happy, on, next to or in the water! After years of operations management in the service industry, I embarked on a world tour for 12 months with Sally. We travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia. My yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean from the Bahamas to the BVI and the Windward Islands, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters, and a Transatlantic crossing.

On returning from travelling, I turned the leisure activity I love into a lifestyle. After a season as Flotilla Skipper in Croatia, I have now captained various catamarans and mono-hulls, both as employed crew and for 10 years as an Owner Operator. My passion for the ocean and its wildlife, coupled with an extensive knowledge of the Caribbean and particularly the BVI ensures my guests get a thoroughly immersive experience of the islands. I pride myself in giving charter guests an amazing time.

Chef/Mate: Sally Duncan
I have always loved sailing. I was put in a boat before I could walk, and grew up crewing and helming various dinghies and keelboats, at racing events with family and friends. In more recent years, I have learnt the joys of larger yacht sailing with Mark at a number of destinations throughout the world, and running our own charter catamaran in the BVI for 10 seasons.

My passion for travel, sailing, cuisine and these beautiful islands and their people, ensures my guests always have a ‘Vacation of a Lifetime’. Cooking with my Mum from an early age, I graduated in Food Sciences at university. Then developed my skills hosting dinner parties for friends and attending chef courses in the UK. Guests often comment on how varied my cuisine styles and flavours are.

Protecting our fragile environment is also a constant pursuit, so that all the wonderful nature we have is preserved for the future. In running various charter yachts in the Caribbean, I have found my ‘niche’. I excel at ensuring my charter guests want to come back again and again, which they do!!
