Patric and Mary and their crew-
Patric and Mary have been sailing together for nearly 10 years and in that time have delighted and charmed their guests in over 150 charters over 55 000 miles with a holiday of a life time.
Now aboard the paradise "Tranquility" they are continuing to do just that throughout the Caribbean.
Captain Patric GUYAZ / Swiss
Born in Switzerland Patric has travelled extensively following his love of sailing and diving.
As RYA Yacht Master he has sailed in many of our seas. In Europe, the Caribbean and also Australia where he was able to fulfill his love of off shore racing.
As a Dive Instructor Patric has taught and dived in some of the best locations in the world, including the Great Barrier Reef, the Red Sea, Maldives and also South Africa where he met Mary up by the Mozambique boarder.
In the BVI he spent 3 years teaching Sailing and Diving to youngsters within a summer camp program before moving on to Crewed Yacht Charters with Mary 10 years ago.
A great sense of humor, coupled with a professional and open and relaxed manner will make you feel special, safe and at home the moment you, your family and friends step aboard Tranquility.
There is no request to big "except the one regarding the elephant" and no cocktail too bizarre that Patric cannot cater to.
Chef Hostess Mary HADDOW / British
Mary was born in the UK and worked in the film business before giving up the camera for a cooker.
Having had the opportunity to travel the world, from Europe to Australia, Africa to India and the USA to the Caribbean she has had the chance to sample many of the world's cuisines.
