|Captain Name:||Bernd Bohmfalk|
|Number of Crew:||2|
CAPTAIN Bernd lived in Munich, Germany, where he also went to University and got his MBA (Master of Business Administration). In the ten years that he lived in Munich he was also a member of the voluntary fire fighters and engaged in the local rescue service.
Sailing means everything to Bernd and his enthusiasm for it is palpable. He was only seven years old when he obtained his first dinghy. He got his first license for sailing on inland seas at the age of fourteen and proved such a natural talent that he commenced giving sailing lessons thereafter. Together with his brother he progressed to going on long sailing tours on a Dutch Bojertjalk, which led him to Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Holland, and the Mediterranean. It was during this time that Bernd gained his considerable knowledge of seamanship. In 1974 Bernd gained his Captains License for seagoing vessels under motor and sail on the waterways and continued his passion for sailing on his own ship within Europe.
One reason for Bernd's love of the sea may lie in the fact that Bernd's past is steeped in the history of sailing. His great grandfather and brothers were owners and captains of trimast ships.
They sailed over the Atlantic and settled in Houston, Texas, where Bernd's family lives to this day.
Today Bernd is once again sailing in the Caribbean on his own sailing yacht - a 62'Irwin - aboard which it is a great joy for him to share his love of the beauty of the Caribbean Islands with his guests.
ASSISTANT CHEF/FIRST MATE: Shantal Cumberbatch grew up on the beautiful Caribbean island Grenada and from early on totally took to the water element. So it was only natural for her to learn to sail on her father's yacht. She loved it! After finishing her schooling she worked for a Yacht Management and maintenance company and gained all the technical know-how a good "Yachtie" needs to have.
Guests visiting "Paradise" describe her as soft-spoken, thoughtful, safety conscious and ready sense of humor. Now she loves the challenge of being Assistant Chef/1.Mate and treating guests to the best vacation onboard the sailing yacht "Paradise".
It is easy to relax and enjoy the company of Bernd and Shantal. They take great pleasure in making the best out of what life has to offer them. They have the wonderful ability of making guests feel at home and enjoy sharing life aboard their sailing yacht.
Welcome aboard the PARADISE.
