Crew Profiles: 
FRANCESCO SILVA CAPTAIN

Captain Francesco grew up in Tuscany in a sailing family who cruised the Med since the early 1960s. While working in photo news in the New York City, organizing fashion shows in Tokyo, he always kept his dream alive of returning to his original passion: the sea. After working for a charter company in Italy and crewing extensively (from classic Schooners to Maxi racers, production yachts and a lot more in between), in 2006 he took the leap with his own yacht to cruise remote areas of the world.

Belize All Inclusive Vacation on Dreaming On Catamaran- Geoff and Iza
Belize All Inclusive Vacation on Dreaming On Catamaran- Geoff and Iza

Geoff & Iza are an outgoing British couple, who love the outdoors, the sea, the cruising life and meeting new friends. Their Caribbean cruising started in 2003 on their first boat, Dream On, a sailing monohull, and they have been cruising the Caribbean and East Coast USA for 6 years and for over 12,000 miles. Dreaming On is their second boat, having made the leap from monohull to multihull in 2008, and after operating charters in the Virgin Islands for several years, they BOUGHT their own island in Belize and made the jump to do charters there! I officially am jealous.

Notes from my visit on Sandcastle sailing yacht this month at the St Thomas Yacht Show are short and sweet!

“Nice boat, Nice people and smells great”

Sandcastle is best for 4 guests having two king sized bed cabins with private heads, although it can take more, with a child in a single in one of the cabins and one on long couches in the salon.

One thing to note is that Sandcastle Sailing Yacht no longer offers SCUBA diving “on board” instead preferring to rendez-vous with established companies who will pick you up and deliver you back to Sandcastlle Sailing yacht after your dives wherever the yacht is anchored.

This yacht is well priced, 2 guests are $9900 fully crewed and inclusive and 4 guests round out to $14,200 for 7 nights. Honeymooners also receive 1 bottle of champagne per day plus one spa treatment for two!

Irwin yacht Sandcastle offers a sleep aboard special when their calendar allow it:

Sailing Charter Flip Flop- Meet the new Crew

Andrew and Michaela are a very smiling and enthusiastic new crew coming on Sailing Charter Flip Flop shortly. 

Captain Andrew and Chef Michaela have been working on day sailing charters as Captain and Crew for 3+ years, exploring all throughout the US and British Virgin Islands. They have been spreading their passion for sailing, snorkeling, and all around adventuring to hundreds of guests from all over the world on a daily basis. Andrew and Michaela bring this same passion to the next level on Flip Flop, offering their guests an insiders look into the splendor of the Virgin Islands.

Growing up in suburban Chicago, Andrew might be considered a late bloomer in the sailing universe, but he knew his passion for the ocean was there from an early age. He moved to San Diego for college, and proceeded to take sailing lessons immediately upon his arrival. Starting off in boats hardly bigger then himself, his passion for all things ocean continued to grow as rapidly as his sailing experience in and around Southern California. Upon graduation from San Diego State University, with a degree in hospitality & tourism, Andrew decided to focus on sailing, and became a US Sailing Certified Instructor. He spent years on San Diego teaching sailors young and old the wonders of the ocean. Andrew returned to the Midwest, for years of sailing on Lake Michigan. Upon receiving his USCG Master Captains license, Andrew decided to move Down Island to pursue his dream of becoming a full time Captain. He is now excited to continue chasing his dream, and to share his love for all things ocean with all of his guests, as he continues to grow as a diver, surfer, chef, host, bartender, and most importantly lifetime sailor.

Sailing Charter Flip Flop catamaran Crew Andrew and Michaela Crew in the fall of 2017
Sailing Charter Flip Flop catamaran Crew Andrew and Michaela Crew in the fall of 2017- SMILE for that camera 🙂

Born and raised in the Virgin Islands, Michaela spent her childhood working at her fathers dive shop on St. John. Spending her formative years scuba diving, sailing and snorkeling she considers her-self a professional mermaid. While receiving a bachelors degree in Business Management From Five Towns College In Long Island, NY, she also established four years of gained four years of experience in the service industry, in both front and back of the house positions. She was drawn to the creative, but structured aspects of kitchen life and returned to the islands with a passion for food and hosting. Michaela spent the last three years honing her expertise and skill in the yachting industry in St. John. Highly knowledgeable about local waters and hotspots, she is excited about sharing her unique and beautiful home. She has a super energetic spirit that keeps her constantly looking for adventure and new friends.

Collectively Andrew and Michaela have traveled to 45 countries and are on a constant quest to grow and learn, while sharing their passions with others. They fell in love surrounded by the turquoise water of the Caribbean and soon after realized they made spectacular sailing partners. Their dream became a reality on a Summer sailing trip to the Greek islands, confirming their belief that sailing was meant to be their career. With their professional sailing experience, unique island expertise, and impeccable hosting backgrounds, they are ready to show their guests a one-of-a-kind, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I have a short video clip here of Andrew and Michaeala answering the question of what they are going to bring to Sailing Charter Flip Flop. The short version is FUN, ENTHUSIASM and NEW IDEAS! Michaela is looking forward to changing the decor on board and making it her own.
