Crew

Captain and Crew of Sayang, a 55 ft Jeanneau Caribbean Yacht Charter

Crew Profile

Captain Mike Jones from RSA & Chef/Mate Kristyna Markova is from Czech

Kristyna and Mike are a young, fun loving couple who have a passion for travel, people and adventure. Their love for meeting new people and exploring new places has now brought them to the Caribbean.

Mike always had a love for water sports. While studying in Cape Town his interest in sailboats evolved. After finishing his degree, Mike began his yachting career as Deckhand on a 45 day passage from Cape Town to St Maarten. This experience had him hooked and he proceeded to work on different boats around the world. After obtaining his RYA Yachtmaster Offshore (for both motor and sail boats), he skippered 2 boats simultaneously in the Med. Sailing boats and the adventures that ensue is what drives Mike’s passion for the ocean. He holds RYA Yachtmaster Ocean and AEC Engineering Certification.

Kristyna grew up on the move traveling with her parents and living in Thailand and the Canary Islands on their sailing boat. Later she came back to her homeland, the Czech Republic, where she studied and after graduating, she decided to continue traveling and left for Colombia and later to Panama, where she started working on various charter boats and yachts as a chef and stew. Before joining Sayang, she was a crew member on a sailing boat, travelling from Panama to French Polynesia. “Travelling is about knowing and exploring local culture and local cuisine”, says Kristyna. She likes to try and combine local recipes she has come across, while adding her own ideas and techniques she has learnt. She enjoys preparing meals from local fresh produce, especially seafood and fish.
“Being a chef on Sayang and other yachts combines my passion for the ocean and good food, which I am looking forward to share with our clients”

Whether you’re interested in sailing, diving, snorkelling, fishing, hiking, discovering uninhabited islands, or just simply relaxing in one of the most scenic tropical destinations in the world, Mike and Kristyna will tailor an experience to your desires. Kristyna and Mike look forward to having you aboard Sayang and showing you the best that the Caribbean has to offer.

Mike and Jemma, thank you for teaching me the ropes of sailing, letting me take the helm, pick up some mooring balls, and giving me an unforgettable spring break. I now hope to continue both my sailing career and wakeboarding career throughout life.. I sincerely hope we run into each other on the water in the future. Thanks again!

We had an amazing journey! Onboard with 1 year old and 3 year old in tow. We had wonderful meals, amazing sunsets, incredible dives (turtles, and yellowtail and sharks, oh my!) Smooth sailing, laughs and memories to last a lifetime! Thanks Jemma and Mike. We will never forget these last 7 days. We will be back for those fishes (since we had unsuccessful fishing attempts)! Keep sharing these amazing experiences with people from all over the world. Please contact us if you come by NYC!

Sailing with Mike and Jemma on Sayang was wonderful. The boat sails beautifully, the meals were delicious (thank you Jemma!), and Mike was an amazing guide to the life underwater – the best snorkeling experience we have ever had. We can’t wait to sail on Sayang again.

A boat that sails like a dream. Two people, Ratna and Paul, who make the dream come true. Attentive at every step, from delicious food, to careful helpfulness in and out of the dinghy, they made Sayang and the BVI a joy. Getting to know each of them was a pleasure.

Ratna and Paul,
Thank you very much for a wonderful week sailing in the beautiful BVIs. You are lovely hosts, enjoyable companions, and a consummate professional sailing team. We always knew we were in good hands. Ratna, your meals were delicious, particularly your wonderful Asian curries. Paul, we learned so much about the islands, their history and inhabitants. Thanks too for the sailing lessons. It will take a few more trips before we are confident on our own, but we enjoyed our time at the helm.
Lovely getting to know you both. Thanks for giving us a wonderful 25th anniversary trip.

Dear Paul and Ratna,

Thank you so much for an amazing 9 days aboard the beautiful yacht Sayang! We have loved every minute of it, and your knowledge, skill and professionalism played a big part in that. Ratna, the food was wonderful and you did a brilliant job in catering for one vegan and one non-vegan! I think we all discovered some new favourites! Paul, your knowledge of the islands is superb and we really appreciated the quiet, beautiful and calm anchorages you found for us. See you soon!
