Your Crew

CAPTAIN ROSS & CHEF/MATE DEE (APR – AUG)

Originally from South Africa, Ross has always had an unwavering passion for sport, travel, and the ocean. His first time on a boat was with his grandfather at age 3, and he can’t help but wonder if this is where his sense for adventure and exploration stems from. They do say “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”. Ross moved to the UK at the age of 18 to travel Europe, go to school, and start a more conventional career as a physical therapist, although this all changed while on a short road trip in Australia. It was here that not only did he find his love for sailing, he also met Daniella, and together they made it their mission to make a life out of doing what they really loved.

Daniella “Dee” Cox
Originally from the UK, was brought up in the city of Bristol. Her parents had a passion for the outdoors and most summer weekends were spent at her family caravan. She fondly remembers swimming in the lake, fishing with “paps” and cooking outdoors around the fire, all memories that have strongly shaped her lifestyle choice today. Dee, like many of her friends, began pursuing a more traditional path of University, to study Psychology, followed by a career as a Child Psychologist. However, a one-year working holiday in Australia opened her eyes to a completely different lifestyle, one which reminded her of her fondness for the water and the outdoors. Ross introduced Dee to the boating industry and she hasn’t looked back since.

Ross and Dee met in the small town of Airlie Beach on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Their passion for travel, which brought them together over 5 years ago, continues to fuel their love for the tourism industry, sailing, and exploring the world.
It all began at an award-winning adventure tourism company in the Whitsunday Islands (Australia). They have since chartered together in the Mediterranean and most recently the British Virgin Islands. After five years in the industry, they have seen some of the most beautiful places in the world and couldn’t be happier with their lifestyle choice.

Ross and Dee create a relaxed environment onboard and facilitate the fun had by all in a natural way. They always aim to make the charter personalized to each guest’s needs, and this shows as no two charters are the same. They love finding beautiful new bays to explore around the islands and a little bit of spontaneity. Ross and Dee also love to entertain, whether that be with friends at home or guests on the boat. Dee’s passion for cooking paired with Ross’ storytelling and personable nature makes them a strong team and great company for any occasion.

As a couple, they share an interest in snorkeling, diving, and marine conservation stemming from their time spent working on the Great Barrier Reef. When traveling, Ross and Dee believe a true way to appreciate a country’s culture is through its food, thus are always intrigued to try new dishes. They share a love for food and although on charter Dee takes charge in the galley, Ross proves pretty handy on weeks off.

Together this enthusiastic and vibrant couple are excited to continue their journey in the charter industry and can’t wait to see what else it holds in store for them.

CAPTAIN TOM & CHEF/MATE HANNAH (DEC – MAR)

Tom was born and raised in Northern California and grew up sailing in the San Francisco Bay. He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics at UC Santa Barbra. After working in the corporate world for 5 years he decided to change course and follow his passions for sailing and skiing. He completed his RYA Yachtmaster in 2017 in Barcelona and since then has sailed professionally in Croatia, Greece, and Montenegro during the summer months. In the winter Tom spent his days skiing the beautiful mountains in Jackson Wyoming. Tom is passionate about creating unforgettable charter experiences for guests, through land exploration, scuba diving, snorkeling, and water sports.

Hannah was born and raised just outside New York City in Westchester, New York where her love of food began. It’s no wonder Hannah is such a foodie, coming from a family that planned monthly food tours to find the best local restaurants throughout NYC. She had thought about turning her passion for food into a career, but as soon as she graduated from high school, Hannah traded snow for sunshine by attending the University of Miami. After college, Hannah first went into the event planning industry which fused her knack for organization and craftiness. Becoming a chef was always in the back of her mind while she worked on boats in Croatia and Montenegro, and that’s when she decided to turn it into a reality. Hannah loves to fuse the foods of her heritage with the cuisines of the places she’s traveled. She also enjoyed the thrill of fishing, especially when she can cook and eat what she catches. Hannah can’t wait to create a journey for all her charter guests while they set to sail to explore the Virgin Islands.

Tom and Hannah fell in love sailing the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. They met in Croatia for work, but with Tom being the skipper and Hannah running the events, they didn’t get a chance to connect. During a sailing trip together through Montenegro, they finally had a chance to get to know each other and the rest is history. After falling in love, Tom and Hanna have traveled the world together from Croatia and Montenegro to Ireland and Morocco. Their adventurous spirits let them fulfill their dreams to run charters together in the Caribbean. Hannah and Tom are ‘go with the flow’, and are experienced at tailoring each charter to be fast-paced or as relaxed as the guests desire.

Exceeded Expectations

I can not think or hoped of a better way to start traveling again. This week with you exceeded so many expectations. Starting with the most delicious gourmet food we have ever had on a boat. The amazing diving with eels and sting rays and the contagious smiles brightening every day. A big thank you for your kindness and generosity. This was a much needed trip, so memorable. Big thanks!!”

Phenomenal Trip

Thank you so much for providing one of the best Christmas trips to date. The fun hospitality knowledge you both provide as well as a clear passion for what you do was the difference maker between this and anything we have enjoyed before. Aside from the unfortunate conch horn lesson the experience was without fault. Thank you again foe all that you did to create a fantastic and eternally memorable vacation. You absolutely made this trip phenomenal.

Amazing Trip

What an amazing trip! Respite At Sea is beautiful and makes great use of space. We loved all the outdoor seating. The crew took care of all our needs and have wonderful stories to tell. Every meal was a delight. We would love to sail on Respite At Sea again.

Fantastic Trip

This has been a FANTASTIC trip. Many special memories will stay with us. Highlights include; The baths with its stunning granite rocks. Devils Bay, not only because of the beautiful colour of the water, but also because of the COLD CHAMPAGNE that you brought to us as the perfect time. The marvelous snorkeling sites you guys points out, in particular the Indians and the Caves. You are an amazing couple! Thank you for making us feel as if we were at home, thank you for being such fun and feeding us with exquisite dishes. Thank you for all your guidance for the scuba team and for helping sailors enjoy the sailing. We are coming back next year, so we will not say 'adios', we will say 'hasta luego'.

Very Impressed

The captain, the salty sea dog was an absolute legend! Great wind awareness and sailing skills, he took the time to teach us a lot throughout the week. We had so much fun with him and the chef, both always smiling with an amazing ability to make you all feel like one big family. They make an awesome couple and a great team on the boat. The chef went over and above with her hosting and made an incredible variety of fresh and delicious food - I was very impressed by the quality and variety and felt very lucky to have our own chef onboard, could not recommend them both enough.

What A Week!!

What a week, these two make an incredible team and I can’t thank them enough. Let’s start with the chef. She is an adorable bundle of energy with an uncanny ability to make her whole crew feel better about themselves just by bouncing around the yacht. A “Michelin-starred chef” projected to have more insta followers than Kylie Jenner by 2021, this girl could whip a King's banquet using only a billycan and a bunsen burner. I am already so jealous of her future children's lunch boxes. Now the captain, what an absolute 11/10 legend- great banter, made everyone feel at ease on the boat very quickly, ensured everyone had a turn at helping out- whether it was tying fenders or lowering the anchor, whilst making everyone feel at ease doing so. Super chill guy with positive energy over absolutely everything. Would recommend this crew to friends for any future trips and would 100% request them on any future trips of mine.

Will Request This Crew Without A Doubt Again

I’ve had the pleasure of having some outstanding Captains and First Mates in the past in the past, but this crew completely stepped up and changed any experience we ever had. The captain was phenomenal, from an excellent captain, hospitable host to his ability to park his yacht in the smallest of spaces! He was a fantastic captain, always in control and always had a smile on his face. Nothing was too much trouble and he would jump at the opportunity to please the guests! The chef impressed us all, her breakfast spreads were outstanding, her lunches even more impressive and her dinners absolutely delicious. I have no idea how she made such elaborate feasts and so many items (all perfectly hot) in such a small kitchen. Her skill is truly impressive! She also ensured that each person’s tastes were met, tailoring our portions to our personal preferences. She also kept the yacht communal areas immaculate and provided great advice for each of the ports. These two did an outstanding job and we will be requesting them again next year without a doubt.
