Jacek started his sailing career quite young at the age of 8. As a junior, he raced Optimists, Lasers, 420s, and FJs. As he got older he got into cruising due to his father who was in the yacht brokerage industry. Together as a family, they cruised their Golfstar 41 Ketch all over Florida. His knowledge of the Caribbean expanded while he worked for Virgin Islands Cruising Guide Publications for 10 years.
Jacek then became a sailing instructor and climbed the ladder to a regional operations manager within the sailing school. While working for the sailing school, he taught many courses in the Virgin Islands. He has spent the last 10 years travelling the islands.
He finally made the leap and moved to the Caribbean in 2016. Using his intimate experiences of the Virgin Islands and local hot spots Jacek delivers a marvelously guided sailing experience.
Jacek is a PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and speaks Polish, Spanish, and English
Maya's love for water and food comes from her background growing up in the Mediterranean. After living in beautiful (but landlocked) Utah for 14 years, she finally decided to go back to her aquatic roots and made the move to the Caribbean.
Pursuing her dream, she moved to the USVI in 2015, and has worked as a yacht chef since. Her passions include cooking, literature, travelling, and music. Maya believes that there is nothing better than gathering friends over plates of great food and seeing their smiles and enjoyment as they eat, talk and relax around the table. Maya looks forward to sharing her culinary passion with you, and making your experience on Sta Ana unforgettable!
Maya is STCW certified and speaks Arabic, French, and English
Together Jacek and Maya would like to show you the best the islands have to offer!
