Greg Evans & Michelle Collins, South Africa
Born and raised in South Africa, Greg and Michelle have known each all their lives. They grew up in the same town, attended the same schools and shared the same circle of friends. After high school each sailed off in different directions to pursue careers in the Yachting world.
Greg and Michelle kept in touch as they hopscotched their way round the Caribbean and Mediterranean and as fate would have it the old friends were reunited when each accepted a position on a Mega Yacht based in Brazil. The rest as they say is history!
Together the couple have chartered in some of the most spectacular locations around the world including Mediterranean, Seychelles, Panama, St. Vincent & The Grenadines and the Virgin Islands (which they quickly fell in love with as their favorite place of all).
Loving the laid back charm of the Virgin Islands, Greg and Michelle jumped at the chance to join Free Ingwe.
Greg's love of sailing coupled with his engaging personality led to his first job as a sailing instructor in South Africa. Eager to gain more experience (and see more of the world) Greg joined on with a yacht delivery company, making several Atlantic crossings to charter bases in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and British Virgin Islands. It was on his first visit to the BVI the hook was firmly set! Greg aimed his sights to the crewed charter industry and advanced through the crew ranks, gaining valuable experience and exposure along the way.
From his early days as a deckhand on a 43 m Perni Navi to Captaining a Classic Schooner in the Seychelles Greg has pretty much done it all. His professionalism and strong work ethic coupled with his easy going personality and great sense of humor make him well loved by charter guests and fellow crew members alike. As a Padi diver master, avid fisherman, water sport enthusiast and excellent tender driver Greg ensures his charter guests have just as much fun in the water as they do while sailing and relaxing on-board.
Michelle began her career in the restaurant and hospitality industry landing a position with an exclusive catering company known for their high profile weddings and corporate functions. Although first hired for her high end service skills Michelle was quickly drawn to exquisite chef creations. She asked to join the kitchen staff as chef assistant and she never looked back. Michelle's formal chef training began at Antoinette's Cookery School, a small school in South Africa known for its culinary themed courses focusing on different cultures, countries and gastronomic experiences.
Michelle's reputation for impeccable service and emerging chef skills led her to her first chef/mate job cruising the Mediterranean on a private yacht. As the Med season ended Michelle learned of a position of a small cruise liner as Animation and Entertainment team leader. Always up for a new adventure Michelle joined MCS Cruise line for the winter season and continued to travel the high seas.
Described in a few words Michelle is easy going and sociable with a flair for making new guests feel like old friends in no time.
