Captain Renald Guindon
Ren is from picturesque Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. The Canadian city is on the St. Marys River with
access to the Great Lakes. Ren started boating even before he started school. He and his family
spent as much time as possible out on the water. He says, “We were a family of four boys. My
Father always had us on a boat. I built my first sailboat, actually converted a rowboat into a
sailboat, when I was in the 5th Grade. I have always loved sailing and being on the water. I want
others to have as great an experience sailing as I do.”
Sailing may have been Ren’s first passion, but he has pursued other interests with equal vigor.
Watersports of course, kayaking, paddle boarding, parasailing, diving, and free diving. He is quite
musical; sang in the choir, played drums in a band, and has just started dabbling with the ukulele.
He has studied yoga for over 18 years and is dedicated to the practice. Friends describe him as
funny, outgoing and calm. It is the perfect balance for a charter captain. He is a wonderful host
who remains composed in any situation.
Ren’s favorite destination on earth is the Bahamas. These islands rise out of the most beautiful
waters and offer the best beaches in the world. He makes every effort not to miss a single detail
that will lead to the best possible experience for his guests. As the Captain and host aboard
GUINEVERE, Ren eagerly shares his liveaboard lifestyle and his favorite island spots to create an
unforgettable charter vacation.

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.
