captain: lynn griffiths (uk)
Lynn was born in Cheshire but spent all her time by the sea in a small coastal town in North Wales. From as early as she can remember she was on the water in some boat or another.

A career in professional accounting took her away from her first love of sailing but she re-qualified with commercial sailing license and has been sailing full time for many years, most of them as Skipper of medium to large yachts. Captain and chef onboard BVI charter yacht, Pacific WaveShe was previously Rear Commodore of the Little Ship Club, the oldest sailing club in the City of London.

She has intimate knowledge gained from years of experience of both Caribbean and Mediterranean sailing which includes both island cruising and full on racing. Lynn and Mark met at Antigua Race Week in 2004 and have been sailing ever since. Lynn has successfully completed her PADI Dive Master and diving will now be offered from Pacific Wave.

As a keen golfer and accomplished horsewoman she has an uncanny ability to find the best anchorages close to the best golf courses and the best stable yards.

chef/first mate: mark miles (uk)
Mark’s home county of Dorset in South West England was a good place to grow up and become involved in both sea and farming and, after his partner Lynn, it’s not surprising that his main passions are sailing and food.

Mark has sailed almost everything and now holds commercially endorsed Ocean Master tickets, both for sailing and power vessels. He is also an airplane pilot and likes to bring the discipline of flying to his every day job as a professional sailor. Mark has successfully completed his PADI Dive Master.

After a degree in agriculture, Mark farmed in Portugal and the UK. This brought him close to food preparation as well as food production and has worked on road shows with some of the most renowned celebrity chefs of today. His style is tinged with global influences but mix southern Mediterranean light cooking with classic cuisine and an intimate knowledge of quality fresh local ingredients.

Mark speaks fluent Portuguese having been a farmer growing vegetables and raising sheep in South West Portugal for six years. He also speaks Spanish and French.
