Meet The Crew
Sergio is a young, fun and adventurous sailor.
Growing up in South America, it was during his summer beach vacations that he fell in love with the sea and made a promise to himself that someday he would live near the ocean.
After graduating high school he relocated to Puerto Rico where he completed his degree in marketing and pursued sailing. His passion for sailing grew extensively which led to the purchase of his own sailboat and many hours of sailing in his spare time.
2 years ago, Sergio decided that sailing was what really ‘fueled his soul’ and decided to make a career change and sail full-time.
He is a licensed RYA Yachtmaster, offshore commercially endorsed and USCG captain. He has delivered outstanding charter vacations in Greece, Croatia, Florida and the Caribbean.
Sergio speaks fluent English and Spanish, enjoys water sports, can teach Salsa dancing and loves a good conversation while guests enjoy his most favored creation, Mojitos!!
Melissa was born and raised in Phoenix Arizona. Her passion for traveling started at a young age through multiple family vacations to many interesting destinations and after 20+ years of traveling around the world her passion for discovering new places and meeting new people hasn’t slowed down!
After graduating from University in Arizona, Melissa began a successful career in sales. In her free-time she enjoyed cooking, a passion that is in constant evolution every time she travels around the world and discovers new ingredients and plates. After living abroad for so long she tries to incorporate international dishes and fresh ingredients in all her meals.
Summers spent on the east coast of the US developed her love for the ocean but her passion for sailing was only realized on a trip to the Caribbean years ago.
She has run charters throughout the Mediterranean where she and Sergio met on one such charter. Sergio and Melissa have worked together in Greece, Croatia and the Caribbean.
They are a terrific team delivering fun, adventurous and customer centric charters with an international flare ensuring their guests have a vacation of a lifetime.
