Gareth and Desi both have a life-long passion for sailing and water-sports. Four years ago they met and began working together, sharing their combined love of sailing, entertaining, cooking and enthusiasm for managing Oyster yachts.
Gareth started sailing as a boy of 11 racing dinghies in England. This passion developed into a career. He has been a professional yacht captain for 20 years with more than 200,000 miles around the world, including 12 transatlantic crossings on yachts from 43ft to 130ft. Gareth’s involvement with Oyster yachts is long standing. First working for them as a senior member of their commissioning team based in Ipswich for 12 years, then as Captain on Oyster yachts for private owners operating charters in the Med and the Caribbean. His love of the sea and sailing is combined with vast experience.
Desi grew up in Miami and spent her teenage years sailing Hobicats, snorkeling and swimming. After moving to England she began sailing yachts and soon after completed her Yachtmaster with commercial endorsement. Desi has since sailed throughout the world and has skippered her own yacht around Britain. Her love of sailing is equally matched by her love of cooking. She has trained and attained a diploma from the Ashburton School of Cookery. Great pride is taken in serving her guests delicious food that is sourced locally. Travel has provided her with a varied culinary repertoire. In addition she is a PADI qualified rescue diver who loves to guide her guests on snorkeling trips, as well as holding a water-ski boat driver international operators certificate.
Together Gareth and Desi’s enthusiasm is infectious. They are great team who will make you feel welcome and go that extra mile to ensure your time on board will be a memorable one.
