Bryony grew up on the coast, sailing on her family’s boat, cruising the southwest UK coast, across to France and through the Greek islands. She is a trained chef who used to run her own catering business so is able to cater for all dietary needs aboard! She now runs a B&B near Salcombe, working alongside Emma Claire.


The grandson of a fisherman, Chris has grown up on the water. From sailing dinghies as a boy before moving to bigger yachts, he’s even had a successful sailboard racing career having been involved in numerous global events.

Over the years, racing, cruising and the delivery of boats have clocked up the nautical miles on all sorts of vessels. Chris is also the full time Coxswain/Mechanic of the Salcombe lifeboat for the RNLI. Chris has the ability to teach with ease making it a pleasure to gain experience from boat handling to Advanced Navigation.
