Your Crew

Number of Crew: 2 Nationality: UK, German

Languages: English, German, French

Captain: William Garnier

Crew Profiles: ‘Invictus’ is managed by an experienced professional crew of 2 – Captain and Chef – who will guide guests around the islands ensuring their dreams and beyond are achieved in safety. The Captain is a qualified dive instructor allowing both experienced and new divers to soak up the magic of the underwater world. Invictus’ chef always produces the finest of meals from her impressively appointed galley.
William was born into a family of naval tradition and was taken to sea before he could see over the steering wheel. This early introduction to sailing meant a career on the high seas was always likely, and so it has proved as he gained RYA Yachtmaster accreditation and has skippered boats in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Kite-boarding, diving, kayaking, windsurfing, surfing are just a few of the activities William enjoys. A sailing trip solo around the Atlantic in a rather small boat is testament to his adventurous spirit. You can ask him about that or just read the book he wrote! His love of the sea is infectious and you will enjoy catching his relaxed island vibe.

Creative and fun-loving by nature, Kim‘s skills in the galley reflect her personality. She delights in mixing healthy fresh local produce with international dishes learnt from a life well traveled. On top of her German Baccalaureate, Kim has training in all aspects of food safety, hygiene and many allergies. She is expert at creating the perfect atmosphere for guests on-board ‘Invictus’. Naturally at ease with people, Kim has managed high-end private and corporate events in cosmopolitan London, and worked with people of all ages as a sports instructor and animal behaviourist. Clearly not one to be type-cast, Kim is qualified on powerboats and can be relied upon to drive the dinghy for wake-boarding, and is always on-hand to capture all your special vacation moments on film.
