Captain Stuart Bewley and Chef Louize Bewley (charters of 10-12 guests will have additional stewardess aboard for crew of 3).
Stuart and Louize met working at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve in South Africa. With both of them having a great love for everything outdoors, they decided to explore their dream of travelling the world together. They have each been in the hospitality industry for over a decade, and together crewing all-inclusive charters for the past 3 years. Entertaining all ages and meeting new people is one of their greatest passions in life.
Captain Stuart's love for sailing started at a young age, growing up in South Africa, with a family that lived for sailing, boating and the ocean. Stuart also studied Events management (he helped start up Oprah's school in South Africa) in the UK, and trained as a Safari Ranger and Lodge Manager, at a number of South Africa's most prestigious safari camps, such as Madike and Phinda Game Reserve. Finally he realized his calling was to the ocean, and he obtained his RYA Off shore Captain's License in 2013.
Stuart has a kind and courteous manner, and a passion for sharing his wealth of environmental knowledge and sense of adventure. After sailing through the BVI for the past 3 years he has tremendous knowledge of all the great anchorages and the lesser known secret hideaways!
Chef Louize started baking with her grandmother at the young age of 6, and her love for baking and cooking carried on through high school and on in to chef school where she flourished. Louize obtained her 3 year Cordon Bleu Diploma from Silwood Chef School in Cape Town, South Africa in 2006. After her studies, she worked in different establishments in the industry, including Relais Chateaux 5 * Safari camps, 5* Golf estates, restaurants and a few private catering companies, culminating in becoming the executive chef at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve.
She has always had a deep love and respect for the ocean, and obtained her RYA Competent Crew course allowing her to combine her two passions. With experience in classic French, Portuguese, pan Africa and Caribbean flavors, Louize looks forward to pampering you with her healthy and fresh menus, while ensuring that your Caribbean Sailing Vacation is one of a lifetime!
Stuart and Louize are committed to making sure each and every guest on board has a fabulous vacation, one never to be forgotten. Whether you want to hit the beach bars, enjoy water sports from the boat, or go for a hike and experience the most amazing sunsets with a glass of wine, for Stuart and Louize nothing is impossible. We hope that you join us in the Caribbean and make a memories of a lifetime.
