Captain : Steve
Steve’s sailing experience includes a few Atlantic crossings, lots of Caribbean sailing and plenty of sailing charters in the Mediterranean. Steve spend a number of years sailing in Greece and knows this cruising ground well. He has been sailing around the Caribbean and the Grenadine Islands for a number of years more recently and has gained valuable knowledge of all the great hideaway and local spots and best places to snorkel, fish, kite and explore.
Originally from Australia he has a very relaxed and fun personality with a good sense of humour. He was an Australian Navel Reserve Cadet from the age of 13 – 18 also and then went on to obtain various licences including his Captain licence of Commercial vessels. Whilst he has the qualifications and experience to keep his boat to the highest of standards, his style of skippering is informal and he has the flexibility to change itineraries as and when is required. Hobbies include kite-surfing (in fact GROOVY does do kitesurf charters for experienced kiters), as well as snorkelling, exploring, travelling and fixing / maintenance. He prefers being on the sea to on land, enjoys meeting new people and of course exploring new locations along the way.
Chef / Hostess / Crew : Monika
Monika has been brought up in the hospitality industry and tourism and loves entertaining and cooking. She was also previously a nanny and incredibly good at entertaining children. She has travelled a lot of the world including Africa and Asia working as a tour leader for 10 years. The past 6 years since she met Steve and started chartering and sailing together, she was a chef on various larger yachts as well as deckhand and hostess and has all the qualifications related to this.
Monika is a fantastic host and her food and meals are always fresh and well presented with no worries about catering for special diets, gluton free or any other requirements. Combined with Monika’s food and Steve’s sense of humour, sailing expertise and local knowledge, any guest is bound to have an amazing vacation.
