Crew

Captain and Crew of Gypsy Princess 45 ft Catamaran, a 45 ft Lagoon Caribbean Yacht Charter

Crew Profile

Crew Profiles:
Amy & Biff have been sailing together since 2003 when they first met on a beach in Greece. They were supposed to meet at the ferry port of sleepy Porto Heli but Biff forgot to pick Amy up and she found him instead at the bar on the beach, entertaining his guests! That was the start of something special and they have worked, lived & sailed together ever since. Having always worked in the marine tourist industry they love meeting strangers who at the end of their vacation leave as friends!

Biff
Captain Biff learned to sail at the Cub Scouts at a tender age and was hooked! As soon as he was old enough to teach sailing he packed his bags & found his way to the Mediterranean coast of France to start his first overseas instructor job. Working his way around France and Spain he finally settled down in Greece running his own sailing school on the chic Greek Riviera. Cold winters of Europe called him to work in Kenya briefly before settling in the BVI’s running luxury charters in warm waters!

Amy
Having learned to cook at the age of 9 so she could watch ‘neighbours’ (Aussie Soap) on TV, Amy added windsurfing & then sailing to her interests after finishing university in order to travel. First working in Turkey, Italy & France Amy finally moved to Greece & met Biff. Wherever she travels she picks up local recipes and cooking techniques, which she refined at the renowned Ashburton & River Cottage cookery schools, both in Devon, UK. Fresh, seasonal & local produce are her favourite ingredients put together in a fusion of worldwide flavours for all to enjoy!

Between them, Amy & Biff have the experience & knowledge to steer you a course to a truly memorable vacation. With their water sports background they are able to teach even the most reluctant swimmers, sailors, paddle boarders to confidently make the most of their time on the water regardless of age. Their years working in family orientated resorts in Europe also lend them to be dab hands at arranging fun and relaxing family charters. Known for their flexibility & competence, your wish is their command.

Following the passing of Hurricanes Irma & Maria, this year, Biff and Amy have pledged to give 50% of their gratuities to grass roots BVI charities in support of the recovery in the Virgin Islands. PAW (Promoting Animal Welfare) Adopt A Roof, Free Food For Kids & the Plant a Tree Initiative

Biff and Amy
The annual CYS Share Our World Award 2018 was presented to Captain Biff & Amy for their efforts helping the territory recover from last years devastating hurricanes
Reduce our waste. We supply re usable water bottles for all guests to use aboard & take home. We purchase cleaning products & personal hygiene products in bulk and refill. Reuse what we can. Old towels & linens are passed on to local animal charities for reuse. Recycle glass & aluminium. Glass is recycled on Virgin Gorda & we save all glass for collection. Aluminium is yet to have a collection point, in the mean time we crush ours so the air in them uses less bin bags!! Support local business & charity. We give unused food from charter to Family Support Network to distribute to those in need in BVI. We purchase as much produce from local farms and businesses as we can to support the local economy and reduce our carbon footprint. We give 50% of our charter gratuities to grassroots charities supporting the redevelopment after Hurricanes Irma & Maria. Future initiatives. We will be working with VI Plastics next season taking water samples whilst on charter to monitor micro plastics in BVI waters.

November 2018
Dear Amy & Biff,
What an amazing adventure you have given us! Thank you for our first memories of the BVI. From working with Xenia to ensure our group stayed together, to stepping aboard the immaculate GP, to our ‘storytimes’ while learning to sail, to the incredible food, to Biff’s watersports instructions, snorkelling in Pirate caves and so much more…… you two made us feel so at home, welcomed and safe. I don’t think we’ve ever felt so relaxed and pampered. Everythign was truly magical and we owe it to you. I can’t wait to bring the kids back to meet you and you MUST come to stay with us in Southern California!
Thanks again for making Cal’s 50th Birthday celebration so special. We will never forget that double rainbow sunset with ‘erotic nipples’ Good Luck on the rest of your season. We know it will be hard to beat The Shulmers & PRick!!!
Love Cal & Jackie

Dear Biff & Amy,
Thank you both so much for the most amazing week. We have truly enjoyed spending our days with you! We will miss hearing the bell ring to start our day, having erotic nipples together & talking about the adventures Biff took us on, hearing pirate stories while being spoiled with gourmet food. We so appreciate how clean the boat is kept, how safe we have felt and how much fun we have had! Our cheeks are sore from smiling!
Can’t wait to share this experience with our kids by bringing them to meet you! Loved our worry free week of Vitamin Sea!
