And we had a little fun, too!


It's not been all polishing and cleaning! I've been doing some intro diving with guests- this photo was taken in about three feet of water (notice we are not even wearing fins!)

With young kids on the boat everyone was keen on a treasure hunt followed by a visit (and sword fight) with a real pirate!! Sasha's beard was a great add to the costume :)

The King's Ransom

We have already completed one fantastic charter and are partway through another. We can't tell you who the guests are or show any pictures of them, but we can assure you that they had an excellent time!

King's Ransom was built in South Africa by a company called Matrix Yachts.

As Stewardess, Tara is in charge of interior service and presentation. In addition to making up the rooms in the morning and turning down the beds in the evening, she sets the table for meals, while of course keeping the entire interior of the boat clean and tidy.

As First Mate, I am responsible for keeping the exterior clean and shipshape as well as help the captain sail the boat. I also do most of the table service -- drinks, food, water, and wine!

We still find time to enjoy some gorgeous sunsets,

get wet,

and of course, smile!

King's Ransom

We are spending the next couple of weeks sailing in the BVI on board King's Ransom, a 76' catamaran built in South Africa by Matrix Yachts. Two of our friends who normally crew are on vacation so we are filling in for them for a couple of charters. We are pretty excited!

More info available here and also on the official website.
