Crew

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

Crew Profile

Captain Mike Jones & Chef/Mate Cassandra Featonby-Smith
Cassie 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.
Cassie grew up in a warm beach town on the East Coast of South Africa. Being part of a large, food-loving family meant she learnt the value of quality time whilst preparing and sharing meals early on in life. Since then she has completed various courses to further her passion for fresh, delicious and wholesome cooking. As a keen adventurer above and below water, Cassie believes that the freedom of sailing is the best food for the soul.
Cassie and Mike look forward to having you aboard Sayang and showing you the best that the Caribbean has to offer.

Dear Mike and Kristyna
Thank you very much for making our first trip to the BVI so memorable. We loved every minute of everyday. The sailing was wonderful! Snuba diving was excellent and I doubt we would ever thought of it, if you had not suggested it. The food was outstanding! Kristyna you are an excellent chef and Mike is a great 1st mate in the kitchen! On the other side of this coin is Mike – great captain and Kristyna great1st mate on the boat! We enjoyed relaxing at Oil Nut Bay – a good midweek break. Sayang is a beautifully maintained boat and your pride in her shines through. We are so glad we booked with you and will forever stick with monohull adventures. We are looking forward to sailing with you again in the future.
Thank you and very best regards,
Rosalind, Robert and Jacob Zils

Mike and Jemma are superb hosts. The food was excellent. Rene is an excellent cook and she raves about these meals. Mike always reviewed our sailing plans.

You are the friendliest and nicest people to spend vacation with. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again!

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!
Ps- If you ever need a deckhand please don’t hesitate to call.

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)!

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.

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!
