Alan has been involved with the oceans from a very early age. His father was a professional diver and passed a love of the seas on to Alan. Since earning his Yacht Master's Offshore License, he has logged tens of thousands of ocean miles on the north and south Atlantic, the Indian and Pacific oceans and the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas.
Twenty years ago, Alan sailed into St Vincent and the Grenadines on his 40 ft sloop and has continued to sail in these waters on many types of vessels enthusiastically sharing the experience with his guests. He enjoys free diving, surfing, wake boarding ,and kite boarding. Although he has an adventurous spirit, as your skipper, your safety is always his first concern.

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.
