Chef Robin Thompson
Robin was born in N.Ireland where he grew up on his family’s farm before heading to England to attend university. Thirsty for adventure Robin joined his sister in Boston and sailed to the Caribbean. Once there he began work aboard one of the world’s largest sailing trimarans where he worked for three years, progressing from steward to cook. A chance meeting with another Captain soon brought him into the world of catamarans and gave him a chance to hone his cooking skills. After a year onboard Robin returned to Ireland to enroll in cooking school and acquired his Chef’s certification back in 2008.
Returning to a life at sea, but this time on a new yacht, Robin grew his charter experience and his passion for both food and service. He also met, and began working under, Captain Drew Meyers. Drew and Robin have now worked together for 10 years and love being able to show you WindQuest has to offer. Robin relishes the chance to present you his food with style and flair and can’t wait to welcome you aboard to start your dream vacation. Fully Covid vaccinated
Mate Will Robson: English
Hailing from the UK’s South coast, Will grew up on the water and - as can be expected - has an immense love for life at sea.

For the next four years - during breaks from university - Will would continue to return to the Mediterranean to sail and windsurf in various professional capacities. Before joining WindQuest, Will also attained a 1st class BSc degree in ‘Creative Music Technology’, and he continues to write music and dabble in filmmaking from the boat (you may even go home with your own video!).

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
