Warm and friendly, Captain Mike and Chef Lesley Blamey will spoil you with true South African hospitality. From the moment you step aboard, you will feel at home in the comfortable and beautifully appointed Extasea2. They grew up together, in the Sub Tropical coast of KwaZulu Natal, and the ocean and watersports have always been a big part of their life. They traveled extensively meeting new people and making friends around the world, and enjoying the cultures and cuisines of the world, and decided that once they sold their National Transport Company, and the children had graduated and left home they would pursue a more relaxed lifestyle sharing their love of the ocean, water sports, traveling, meeting new people, enjoying their cultures and cuisines and making new friends.
Mike is a qualified RYA Yachtmaster with over 50,000 sea miles under his belt. Together they have sailed and explored the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It gives him great pleasure to assist a total novice in getting up and sailing with a little guidance and encouragement. He is also a qualified Padi Dive Master, and will happily assist certified divers on planning their dives and accompany them as their guide. As an accomplished water-skier, and surfer he will soon have you up and riding on your water sports of choice. He is very competent in maintaining and running all aspects of his yacht. His warm and giving personality, love of life, sense of humor and honesty make him a great captain to sail with. His "generous" barman's skills and great tales will have guests laughing into the night. He's also a great DJ.
Lesley is a certified diver, and with 45000 sea miles logged is also proficient at the helm and in all crew aspects.

CREW STARTING 12/01/2021
Gary was first introduced to Catamaran sailing and Scuba Diving on a trip to Madagascar in 1997 - on his brother-in-law, Mike Blamey of ExtaSea2
, yacht Coco d’Mer! The bug bit hard, and since then it was a slow progression to transition from the corporate hospitality industry to yachting full time. Having spent a few successful seasons in the Caribbean in the charter industry, post-Irma has seen Gary continue sailing and improving his skills on many ocean crossing and on all types of vessels. Now a Powerboat and Personal Water Craft Instructor, which complement his Dive Master certification, the theory of becoming a Yachtmaster Ocean is also complete. On the latest Atlantic crossing from Cape Town to Grenada (November ’21) Gary has submitted his sighting to RYA to officially become a Yachtmaster Ocean captain. His culinary skills from years of catering experience have not been forgotten and are put to great use in complementing the chef on board. This, together with exceptional Martini’s and Margherita’s, will make your vacation unforgettable!

This Yacht offers a “Plus Expenses” Rate:
Included are the Yacht and its onboard equipment as well as the Captain, Chef and Crew’s services.
Excluded are food and beverages, fuel for the yacht and its tender, any dockage, airport transfers costs, onshore excursions and tours, as well as any cruising permits, licenses and other charter related expenses. 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.
