Matrix 76 “Tranquility”Your Crew
Patric, Mary, Roelof and Nikita
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 fulfil 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’s 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 humour, 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.
She takes great delight in sharing these flavours with you. Quality of produce remains the mainstay of her cooking and she will tailor any menus to suit you and your family’s requirements.
Also a qualified Dive Master she is happy to paddle about with you in the water, lunches permitting. Flexible with a lively sense of humor and a kind heart, her aim is to make your stay as seamless and comfortable as possible.
Patric and Mary are joined by William and Serena as mate and stewardess aboard Tranquility.
Will started working in construction after school before becoming an estate agent in London at an early age. He decided to move to New Zealand and then on to Australia. There he traveled and worked a variety of jobs, ranging from beekeeping to working in some of the finest vineyards in the world, to building houses as a carpenter. He also finished four ski seasons in the French Alps and Australia.
Will spent a lot of his yachting time in the Med, especially the French Riviera, although before he joined Tranquillity he worked on a 160ft exploration-style yacht in Brazil.
Serena grew up in the country side, she started riding before she could walk. After finishing her degree in graphic design she spent a season in the Alps as a cook.
One of her favorite places she has traveled is Africa, where she climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and also did her dive qualifications. One of her hobbies is running and she has run in the Rome and London marathon.
Before signing on with Tranquility, Serena worked on various motor and sailing yachts as either Stewardess or Chef.
Will and Serena are fun, easy and outgoing people and always have a smile on their faces. They will ensure that all your water sports needs are taken care of and that your every comfort on board Tranquility is fulfilled.
