Amazing trip! We chartered the boat for a week with two other families. Could not have gone better. The captain took us to incredible coves around the BVI that had great snorkeling. Whenever we wanted to do water sports, they knew exactly where to go. They were easy going but attentive to what we wanted to do. And the food! Oh my gosh, it was better than most 4 star restaurants we have been to. The chef had every meal planned out and made sure the adults and kids liked what they got. And captain was also a great bartender with different rum or other drinks whenever we wanted. It was a perfect experience.
Thank you so much for having us on the boat. The crew was exceptional, the boat in perfect condition & the service unique. After 4 trips to the BVI we finally found the right boat and crew that we were searching for!
The crew are the best. The boat is great with extremely comfortable accommodations. Everything was in good working order. This is our second time here and what made the difference was the attention to detail from the crew. The food preparation and presentation by the chef was perfect. The captain was not only outstanding as a captain but was also the perfect host. Glitches were dealt with seamlessly and he still had time to cover any request. "no problem at all" was the theme. Well done and thank you!
Thank you so much for a truly super trip! Five countries in 5 days, not bad. This is our 4th excursion as a group and SAIL AWAY delivered in every way. Lisa - “That smells delicious!” Evan - “Steady as she goes.” the chef - “like a busy bee.” And of course SAIL AWAY - “We love you!”
Dear Sail Away – Thank you for doing such an amazing job of showing our family your little piece of paradise. We knew this would be a trip of a lifetime, but we had no idea how the three of you could make an unforgettable trip even more amazing. The adventures, the food, the service, the great stories and laughter and most of all the kindness that you so effortlessly provided were above and beyond. Thank you for everything! We truly hope our paths cross again sometime.

CAPTAIN LEON AND MATE/STEW WENDY VENTER
Leon and Wendy Venter are South African and Zimbabwe born. Both are outgoing and have a love for sailing and water sports, deciding to leave their corporate and business world behind in South Africa to pursue their love for the outdoors in the stunning Caribbean.
In South Africa, Leon had his own engineering business for thirty years plus, doing on-site machining for the sugar, petroleum, paper and marine industries in South Africa and other African countries. Leon has been sailing recreationally since a young boy and has always had a passion for the sea and diving.
Wendy was involved in the corporate world of Mercedes Benz, being on the financial side for several years and with the Barlows Group previously. Her love for the outdoors, sailing since a young girl with her family in Zimbabwe and then South Africa, as well as her love for diving, made their decision to re-locate to the Caribbean, an easy one.
Wendy and Leon have sailed extensively up the East African coastline on their own catamaran and have raced several Vasco Da Gama yacht races, from Maputo in Mozambique to Durban in South Africa. They have sailed their own catamaran from Durban on the east coast of Africa, around the tip of Africa, up to Walvis Bay, Namibia, crossing the southern Atlantic Ocean to St. Helena and Ascension. Upwards to Suriname in South America and upwards to the bottom of the Caribbean chain, to Trinidad. Leon has his Master of Yachts Offshore to 200 tons Captain’s license as well as his South African Coastal Skippers License. Leon is a PADI certified Instructor of several years and Wendy has her Small Powerboat and Rib MCA certification. Both he and Wendy have been in the charter industry in the Caribbean since 2011, working from St. Vincent and the Grenadines to St. Martin and then the British Virgin Islands. Leon and Wendy have sailed various yachts from the British Virgin islands to Florida and back to the Islands, loving the adventures the trips had to offer.
Leon and Wendy look forward to having you on board the luxurious Vacoa, to pampering you and tempting your taste buds with the delights from the galley, indulging you in your favourite water sport, whether it be diving and re-living the history of the Virgin Islands, snorkeling with the abundance of sea life, testing your skills at paddle boarding, kayaking and exploring the coastline with your partner or just simply relaxing on the trampolines, soaking in the sun.
