Upon meeting Peter and Bobbi you get the feeling that you have just reunited with some special, long-time friends. Their easy-going demeanor, sense of humor, and love of meeting new people create an immediate atmosphere of warmth and relaxation for their guests. As you sit and visit with Pete and Bobbi while enjoying that first welcome aboard cocktail, you will sense their love of the islands, sailing, the water, and adventure. You will also begin to understand why their delightful partnership, extensive experience, and many talents and skills have caused them to be dubbed by many "The Grand Crew".
Although Pete and Bobbi have sailed together all over the world, they first visited the British Virgin Islands in 2005 on their own sailing vacation. They fell head-over-heels in love with the islands, the people, and the lifestyle. Making the decision to leave the 9 to 5 work world, they returned to the BVI's in 2007 as a full-time Charter Yacht Crew. For the last 5 years, Pete and Bobbi have been exclusively aboard Grand Cru, entertaining more than 600 delighted guests on over 120 charters. Understandably, many of their charters are repeat bookings from guests who ask for them by nameand only them!
It is easy to understand why charterers arrive in the BVI's with high expectationsexpecting their yacht to be beautiful, their accommodations spotless and comfortable, their cuisine fabulous, and their hosts gracious. Pete and Bobbi do not disappoint! Pete's mechanical and technical skills keep Grand Cru sailing smoothly, and he and Bobbi work tirelessly to keep the yacht immaculate and well appointed. As for cuisine, Bobbi's culinary skills never fail to impress even the gourmets in the group, and she somehow manages to delight even the pickiest young guests. Want to learn a bit about sailing? Pete is an amazing, patient teacher, and will let guests do as much or as little sailing as they wish. Want to simply sun on the trampoline with a cushion and cool drink? Pete and Bobbi are a sailing team that makes it all look easy.
Hailing from Poole, England, Peter Small grew up on the water, and began sailing as a young boy. His father purchased his first sailing yacht when he was 7, and Pete and his dad alone completed the delivery trip! Since then, Pete has spent as much time as possible "at sea". Following his passion for sailing, Pete became a RYA Yachtmaster in 1982, not realizing that the hobby he loved so much would one day become a profession. Pete's sailing expertise, knowledge of the islands, and warm personality have made him a favorite among BVI Captains!
Bobbi Williams, chef and hostess on Grand Cru, is convinced that she has found her true vocation in life! Also from Poole, England, Bobbi is an accomplished chef, has perfected her skills in culinary classes, yet brings a love for traditional home cooking to the table. Her travels throughout the world have exposed her to many cooking styles and international flavors, which are evident in her exquisite presentations. The "hostess" part of Bobbi's title is also well earned, as she continually workssuccessfully to make every guest comfortable, entertained, and happy!
