Come Join us in the Bahamas
The land of turquoise waters and constant tradewinds, Aritz has been exploring and finding hidden gems around The Bahamas. Bahamas is much more than Paradise Island. Our charters visit exclusive and deserted islands away from tourists, explore the grotto that James Bond was filmed in, visit a bay to swim with turtles, and beach comb on some of the longest sand bars. We fish in the deep waters and serve fresh tuna in our Poke bowls for lunch and Mahi Mahi for dinner. Explore the hiddens beaches and go snorkeling, swim with the pigs, dive and search for sunken airplanes and try your hand at kitesurfing. With Madrigal, you are in for an adventure of a lifetime!
Captain, Aritz Belategi
Aritz lives for sailing and loves to share his passion for the sea with his guests. Born and raised in Spain, he spent his earlier years sailing and teaching kitesurfing around the world. It started with a trip to the Philippines to kite surf but he stayed to build a boat and spent 8 months exploring the island. He then ventured around the globe, exploring and searching for best kitesurfing destinations in the world. After working as a kitesurfing instructor in Morocco, Egypt, Netherlands, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, he realized that the best destinations are accessible only by boat and shifted his focus to becoming a Captain.
Artiz returned to Spain to get his Captain’s License and now has over 10,000 miles under his belt. With 8 Atlantic crossings, 5 as Captain, you could say he loves to sail. He has spent three charter seasons in Greece and three in The Bahamas. Sailing between islands, cays, and secret beaches brings an exclusivity of sailing and exploring to new cultures, that brings him joy. Evenmore so, is his ability to share his love of adventure and sailing with people. He is known as the Captain who will always raise the sails, provide locals insights and help with recommendations and bookings for restaurants. His charismatic personality and energy is addictive, he will have you laughing all day.

Lauren and Aritz
A joint love for kitesurfing was the fate that brought them together. After sailing to Union Island in the Grenadines for a kiting vacation, Lauren met Artiz on “Happy Island”, a small island made of conch shells and inseparable since. They continue to chase small exotic islands, sailing around the world. They have worked as crew for three years in the Dodeconese and Aegean Sea, in Spain and in the Bahamas. But their best adventure, and test of their relationship, was sailing across the Atlantic during COVID this year. :)

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.
