Privilege 465 Catamaran (2001) 'Isolablue ' Your Crew

Captain Laurent Geslin

Laurent grew up in Paris, France. Urban life did not deter this water baby, who learned to swim and sail a Laser 420 as a child, and to scuba dive at the age of 12, with level three qualifications at 16 years old. He moved to Switzerland when he was 22 years old, purchased a Laser 2, and spent all his free time trimming the sails on Lake Geneva.

Laurent graduated college with a degree in economics and enjoyed a long career in the Swiss private banking industry as a stock exchange trader and operations specialist. In addition to his job as a banker, he co-owned a dive shop and school. Laurent is a high-energy individual that thrives on keeping busy, so he also played bass and guitar in a local band. Laurent is a qualified PADI Dive Instructor.

In 2015, Laurent and his wife Astrid decided it was time for a life change. They bought a catamaran and set off to sail the Mediterranean Sea. They skimmed past Gibraltar in 2016, spent two months in the Canary Islands and three months in the Cap Verde Islands before crossing the Atlantic. It was love at first sight when they reached the Caribbean, and they’ve decided to stay for quite a while.

Laurent is an expert Captain who enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for Caribbean sailing with his guests. His motto: living your dream is always better than dreaming your life. Charter ISOLABLUE with Laurent and Astrid. Isn’t it time to live your dream?

Chef Astrid Geslin

Astrid had an enchanting childhood. She grew up with her brother and sister close to Luzern, in the heart of Switzerland, near the Alps and next to the Lake of Lucerne. Nestled in this picture-postcard landscape was her parents’ restaurant. Even as a very young child, Astrid loved to help with the cooking. Growing up cooking, serving and eating fine food proved a joyful inspiration. However, whether they be lakes or seas, water has always been her passion: sailing, diving, windsurfing, and swimming. Astrid is a qualified PADI Dive Master.

For over 20 years, Astrid worked in Geneva, Switzerland as a Human Resources executive. One of the great benefits was the extensive, international travel the job required to start-up offices in Zürich, Paris, Milan and elsewhere. In between these working adventures, she and husband Laurent spent as much time as possible sailing their boat across the waters of Lake Geneva. Astrid obtained Sailing Certification for Lakes, then passed the Swiss Certificate of Competence for Ocean Yachting. It was a perfect time to sail to new horizons.

Astrid is always happy to receive guests and share moments of discovery and joy. “Every charter is a rewarding, new, enriching experience made of encounters, good humor and fun,” says Astrid. “I speak fluent French, English and German, some Italian and Spanish. I try to welcome our guests in their own language and make them feel at home. I’m passionate about fine food from all over the world. My recipes are inspired from Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, but always with a French touch.”

While Astrid’s cooking consistently earns rave reviews, guests needn’t worry about gaining a couple of extra pounds. Astrid enjoys leading a workout, from on-deck yoga to a lap around the yacht, to a go on the water toys. And fun is always her leading motivator.

Astrid was awarded FIRST PRIZE at the Grenada Yacht Charter Show 2018 Culinary Contest! Well done Astrid!!
Astrid commented:
I wanted to present the 3 different colors of Grenada:
green for the fertile land;
yellow for the wisdom, sunshine, and warmth of Grenadians and
red for the people’s courage and vitality. The people here are what make the Island of Spice so unique.
The specified ingredient was Tamarin juice. My idea was to create a Tamarin reduction which I added in all three finger entrees.

Pascale & Christine

Dear A&L,
Many thanks for making our dream a reality. This trip with you was simply magical, and in addition to discovering new paradise islands, we met two very beautiful people, and enjoyed every anecdote or experience you shared with us, just like the culinary delights of the Chef! We are already longing to come back for new adventures around Antigua. Good luck and see you soon, Pascale & Christine

Astrid

I was specially honored to receive the first place at the Culinary Excellence Award during the Grenada Yacht Show. I present the 3 different colors of Grenada: green for the fertile land; yellow for the wisdom, sunshine and warmth of Grenadians and red for the people’s courage and vitality. The people here are what make the Island of Spice so unique. Grenadians are without a doubt some of the friendliest people in the Caribbean, and I really mean it!

Past Customer

Initially, I was just an added patch, as a “leech” journalist who has been hanging on to Jo and Leila for a long time. This is my last trip to the Caribbean. We had planned to leave the 4 (with Sylviane) to Union. 2 days before my arrival, I am told: “We will go by boat with Swiss people, it will be great”. I did not know what to expect … Arriving on Isolablue, it’s as if we arrive in the extension of our house. Laurent and Astrid welcome you with such kindness and considerate care that after 5 minutes you feel at home! Finally, even better than at home! Because when Astrid goes in the kitchen, the mets delight the taste buds one after the other. Appetizers, main course, desserts, all the dishes follow each other like in a gastronomy restaurant except that the terrace has a view …. on the turquoise sea …. Through the sharing and confidences, adventures under and on the water, crashes of drones, aborted battles of Pancakes, wet rides on Junior, rum punch, the links are tightened to reach all the same conclusion: L & A, you are MAGNIFICENT full of KINDNESS, GENEROSITY, WILLINGNESS of SHARING and LOVE to the Others. Thank you for these 3 unforgettable days.
