Gary & Chef
Gary hails from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, where, as ayoung lad, his love for the ocean was quite evident as his parents would often have to head down to the nearby beach after dark, to haul him out the waves where he would be body-surfing or wave-ski riding!
Gary has traveled extensively and has dived and sailed most of the Indian Ocean Islands after being introduced to the yachting world by his brother-in-law, whilst sailing and chartering his catamaran in Madagascar back in the late nineties. This was the catalyst for him going on to be a RYA Yachtmaster Offshore, and now a Divemaster. After crewing on a delivery of a 50ft Voyage catamaran from Cape Town to Tortola, Gary decided this was where he wanted to be!
Coming from a strong sporting and catering background, he is always keen to be out there doing something active, be it in the galley or on the water, under it, or on land.
Gary is joined by professional charter yacht chef Leanne Ho-Chung.
Leanne has been in the customer service industry for two decades. Her experience is extensive and varied ranging from Chef/First mate on private catamarans and term charter yachts to serving in fine-dining restaurants and bars, luxury hotels and B&B accommodation.
Having previously held positions as a chef, deckhand, restaurant supervisor, fine dining waitress/ bartender, personal chef and dive master in various countries around the world, all of these vocations have required exceptional people skills and social interaction, both of which come naturally to me. Strong work ethics and professionalism is of utmost importance...read more
Leanne is always willing to cater to any palate. Her passion for cooking allows her to experiment with many different flavors whether it be Asian or Mediterranean, North American or Caribbean. Leanne's main focus is keeping food as healthy as possible using as many fresh ingredients available. Of course dietary requirements are always taken into consideration.

The week on Bliss was better than I had expected as I was concerned that the children would feel bored or trapped on board while sailing about but I couldn't have been more wrong. They had a blast - there was something new each day for them to discover. They enjoyed the sailing and there was never a moment when there was something fun, different, exiting for them - from the amazing snorkeling, watersports, watching the fish at night, catching the fish, general diving / jumping off the boat. The adults too had a wonderful time - an amazingly relaxing holiday with a feeling at the end of each day that you had done so much, the reality being Vlad and Angie worked so hard to do it all for us!
If my son could make the decision, I think he would live with Vlad on Bliss! We would most definitely consider a charter again. I cannot stress enough what a fantastic time we had aboard Bliss. It certainly is "up there" as one of our best holidays.
