Captain Petr was born in Prague. He eventually found his way to the sea to attend the Maritime Academy in the Ukraine. It was here on the Black Sea where Petr fell in love with sailing. In 1989 he graduated with a Masters Degree in Marine Engineering and headed out to sea.
For the next several years he traveled all over the world on Merchant ships as an Engineer Officer. In the early nineties Petr moved to the United States where he later established and operated a successful yacht service company. When he wasn't working he was sailing.
A few years ago Petr heard the call of the Caribbean, packed up the shop and sailed to the Windward Islands to do what he loves best. He spent the better part of his time here exploring the Jewels of the Caribbean. Now he would like to share these treasures with you.
Petr has over fifteen years of experience as a skipper. He holds a Captain's license, a Merchant Marine Document, a First Aid/CPR Certificate and a Marine and Amateur Radio Operator licenses. He speaks fluent English, Russian and Czech.
Chef Tracy was raised in the rolling hills of North Carolina, she eventually made her way to the coast to attend college. Disregarding her parents' wishes to return home for summer break, Tracy eagerly accepted a cooking position aboard a sailboat in the enchanting waters of the Bahamas.
While in the Bahamas, she learned to catch, clean and cook the fresh "Catch of the Day" Caribbean style. She was Hooked! Every summer thereafter she could be found sailing about the islands.
Even after graduating with a degree in Marine Biology Tracy chose to continue creating culinary delights on board yachts in the Caribbean. She eventually returned to the States and for fourteen years worked as Chef and Mate on a privately owned yacht. She now calls the Caribbean Windward Islands / Grenadines home.
Happy to be back in the Caribbean, Tracy looks forward to tempting your taste buds with exotic and intriguing Caribbean flavors aboard Genesis. All you need to bring is your appetite!
Petr & Tracy were unbelievable. I can't think of anything they could have done more for us. It was better than any service I've had in any 5 Star, 5 Diamond hotel. They were professional, friendly, unbelievably attentive (took me a day to get used to that level of attention. We have our own boat and often have friends aboard. I thought we were attentive but, turns out, not so much). It seemed like they anticipated everything we might need at any given time.
We have eaten at many high end restaurants. What we had on board Genesis was many levels above all of that. We were so amazed we took photos of most of our meals. Tracy took no shortcuts in cooking for us. Everything was prepared from scratch, the flavors were WOW and the presentation was nothing short of 5 Star. Rick even started calling Tracy "5 Star". We caught some Barracuda which Tracy (cleaned, filleted, etc) served us the next day for lunch. We had shark, calamari, conch, lobster, tuna, steaks, lamb and some of the most amazing breakfasts ever.
