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.

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.

H2O Trips

I personally ran a 10 passenger charter yacht in the British Virgin Islands for 20 years and crewed over 500 charters. This coupled with the fact that I have personally stepped aboard each of the several hundred yachts that I represent and inspected the vessel as well as quizzed the crews makes my help to you unconditionally qualified to be up to date, informed and unbiased. Many in our industry simply rely on information that they have gotten from either the internet or from our other “trade” sources. I am here for the express purpose of finding the correct match for you and your family’s needs. What I tell or show you is what I have recently seen or personally photographed myself. I do not rely upon information and pictures from 5 year old brochures. Our service is completely free to you and there is absolutely no obligations to book through us. Please let me help make your vacation the vacation of a lifetime, after all, yachting IS our world.
