Brief

CAPTAIN PETER DREFFIN

Captain Peter’s love of sailing is not surprising. Yachting is central to the posh resort town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where he spent his youth. He describes himself as “the wayward son”, wedged in the middle of five siblings. Summers were spent sailing past storied beaches, bucolic parks and Gilded Age mansions, or racking up awards racing catamarans. After college and a short career in psychology, he bought a little monohull and set out for new horizons. Eventually, he was crewing on ocean going vessels and absorbing the fundamentals of passage making in the Mediterranean and Atlantic oceans.

Four decades and a million wonderful memories later, Peter hasn’t lost an ounce of zeal. He has raised and educated two sons, mostly at sea, spending winters in the Bahamas and summers on the U.S. East coast, or in Venezuela. When the boys were capable as helpful crew, the whole family set off on a remarkable circumnavigation. Today, both sons are highly accomplished and among their many talents, experienced captains.

To date, Peter has sailed across the Atlantic Ocean four times, and has been licensed by the US Coast Guard as a Captain since 1982. He has owned eight boats. He has cruised the Bahamas for 35 years, anchoring in every hidden nook and cranny amongst the 2,000 cays and islands. He very much enjoys showing folks the Bahamas, above and below the sea. He is an expert at free-diving and spearfishing, and knows the most amazing reefs and wrecks to snorkel. He says, “My favorite yachting destination is the next one. Truly every place has something that makes it unique and special.”

CHEF/HOSTESS REBECCA "BECKY" GARCIA

Rebecca Garcia’s friends call her Becky, and describe her as good fun, lively and a tireless worker. She’s also an extraordinary cook with an extensive repertoire of recipes. She has run many kitchens, large and small, worked in five-star restaurants and cooked aboard yachts for some 25 years. It all began in the kitchens of her two Grandmothers, one English and one Spanish, when she was so small she couldn’t reach the table without a stool.

Becky spent her childhood in London, her teens and early 20s in Donegal, on Ireland’s rugged, northwest coast, and summers with Dad and his family in Spain. She did a lot of amazing things. Her “very hardy life” on a small Irish island in the North Atlantic required commuting by row boat in very cold, rough water. She worked with the Irish Civil Defense ambulance emergency team. She helped a master boat builder construct a Viking ship. She achieved diplomas in holistic massage, anatomy and physiology, reflexology and courses in Reiki.

Becky says, “I love fresh, healthy food, especially colorful vegetarian dishes with delicious sauces, and Mediterranean cuisine. Guests rave about my homemade bread, tasty pastas, fresh fruit salads, cakes and puddings.” In addition to cooking great meals aboard SWISH, Becky might find time to chat about her family’s 1911 50-foot Norwegian gaff-rigged ketch, or her three Atlantic crossings, or the big posh yacht in Guatemala with an owner who accidentally threw himself overboard. With Becky as your chef and hostess, your charter adventure in the Bahamas could include delightful ingredients you never even imagined.

Guests enjoy sharing time with little Bella (a Schipperke dog), especially with the dolphin swimming or walks or games on the beach, but equally for clients that are not doggy lovers. In the 1690s, the Schipperke became popular watchdogs on the barges in Belgium and earned its name schipperke, meaning "little captain" in Flemish.
