We get quite a few requests for female charter skippers here in Antigua. This falls broadly into two areas of reasoning: some of our female guests who are on a girl’s sailing trip would rather sail with a female Captain and many girls want to be taught by a female Instructor. We are fortunate here in Antigua that we are able to recommend Heidi to our guests. Heidi has the ability to put everyone at their ease; no matter male or female and no matter what language you happen to speak.
Heidi is a very talented sailor. Firstly she is a commercially endorsed Ocean Yachtmaster and Cruising Instructor. She is also an ASA (American Sailing Association) Instructor up to ASA 105 level (Heidi can get you to Bareboat certification). Couple this with Heidi’s transatlantic deliveries and her ability to cook up a coconut battered jumbo shrimp in the galley for ten guests, and you have the perfect sea-going companion.
The evenings will always be entertaining with Captain Heidi; as well as knowing the best spots to enjoy the Antigua experience, she can share with you tales of her adventurous side (as if a transatlantic sailing trip isn’t adventurous enough!) when she hiked up to the base camp of Everest, or spent three weeks on cargo boats on the Amazon river (stowaway?).
Above it all though, Heidi will look after you, your friends (male and female) and your boat. Are you ready for an Antigua Heidi experience? Email us email@example.com and we’ll check availability for you.
