Lynn & Mark
Captain Lynn Griffiths - English - Owner Operators
Lynn was born in Cheshire in West Central England but spent all her free time by the sea in a small coastal town in North Wales. From as early as she can remember she was on the water in some boat or another. Aged 14 she acquired her first 16ft speedboat which was in need of some TLC. Lynn removed all the yellow paint taking the hull back to bare Aluminium and restored it in beautiful Flag Blue. Her father had a successful construction company and as a schoolgirl Lynn kept the books for the family business. This led to a degree in accountancy following which she started a professional career as a Chartered Accountant. Lynn has worked in senior finance positions for some of the World's biggest Insurer's, such as Euler International, Endurance Worldwide & Groupama. Based in the City of London she travelled all over Europe and specialised in setting up from scratch new Insurance Companies. After work she loved her TVR sports car and golf. She was also a qualified aerobics instructor and in the evenings after work she taught aerobics for 12 years. For her vacations Lynn loved to travel to the Far East, Middle East, and golf courses all over Florida; always taking to the water wherever possible.
Her busy career took her away from her first love of sailing but since 2001 she's been back on the water qualifying with an "MCA Master 200 tons" licence and an "RYA Commercially Endorsed Yacht Master" ticket for sailing vessels and has been sailing full time for many years most of the time as Skipper of medium to large yachts. She owned her first yacht in the UK for four years (a lightweight Scandinavian built racer called Temptress) and cruised and raced her extensively up and down the south coast of the UK. She's raced seriously at regatta's such as Cowes Week, Cork Week, Antigua Race Week & St Maarten Heineken Regatta. She's sailed on a 100ft Wally up and down the Caribbean and a large Oyster from Ireland across the Mediterranean to Croatia. Lynn was a Rear Commodore of the Little Ship Club, the oldest sailing club in the City of London. Along with social activities and club cruises she also organised popular weekend racing. She started a winter racing series that encouraged members back onto the water and re-vitalised the club...read more
Lynn has intimate knowledge gained from years of experience of both Caribbean and Mediterranean sailing which includes both island cruising and full on racing. Lynn and Mark met at Antigua Race Week in 2004 and have been sailing ever since. Since purchasing Pacific Wave in June 2008 she has been sailing with Mark full time, travelling up and down the Caribbean every year from Puerto Rico to Trinidad.
Lynn is a keen diver and underwater photographer and is a qualified PADI Divemaster.
When not sailing or diving she is a keen golfer and accomplished horsewoman. She has an uncanny ability to find the best anchorages close to the best golf courses and the best stable yards.
Chef: Mark Miles English
Mark's home county of Dorset in South West England was a good place to grow up and become involved in both sea and farming and, after his partner Lynn, it's not surprising that his main passions are sailing and food. Mark's adventures started early, aged 18 he did his first big sailing trip - 1,300 miles in an old C&N sloop from Lymington on the south coast UK to La Coruna in northern Spain and back. Also at the age of 18, and travelling alone, he walked 5,000 miles from Cape Town South Africa to Cairo Egypt. It took seven months, cost $300, and included being arrested for spying in Uganda. After this and some time running around in the British Army it was a welcome rest to go to college aged 24 and study Agriculture. While there he found enough spare time to become elected President of the Students Union - campaigning tirelessly for cheaper beer. After college he was a shepherd for large flocks of sheep in southern England and then he farmed in south west Portugal, growing vegetables and raising sheep. He was a Royal Bath & West of England scholar, travelling to Australia and New Zealand to study problems with drug resistance in sheep flocks. After 6 years in Portugal he returned first to the Isle of Wight and then Cambridge UK, but travelled all over the world to buy produce and then sell it to UK supermarkets. He spent his free time dinghy sailing and racing at Grafham Water and on the Suffolk coast - and flying. Mark has been an aeroplane pilot for over 20 years and he likes to bring the discipline of flying to his everyday job as a professional sailor. In 2003 Mark returned to the Isle of Wight and went sailing full time but kept his toe in the agricultural water with sweet corn in Hereford and Christmas turkeys in Marlow. He now holds an "MCA Master 200 tons Unlimited Area" licence and "RYA commercially endorsed Ocean Master" tickets, both for sailing and power vessels.
Mark learned to dive age 13 in Malta and then with the British Sub Aqua Club. He dived wherever in the world his work happened to take him and he is a PADI Divemaster.
He speaks good Portuguese and gets along well in Spanish and French. Mark's previous career in agriculture brought him close to food preparation as well as food production and he has worked on road shows with some of the most renowned celebrity Chef's of today. His style is tinged with global influences but mix Southern Mediterranean light cooking with classic cuisine and an intimate knowledge of quality fresh local ingredients.
Pacific Wave won 2nd place as Best Monohull at The Tortola Charter Yacht Show & Chef Mark Miles took 1st place in the Chef Competition at The St. Thomas Charter Yacht Show. Mark also took 2nd place at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show Concourse du Chef. Mark has worked on road shows with some of the most renowned celebrity chefs. His style is tinged with global influences, but mixes Southern Mediterranean light cooking with classic cuisine and an intimate knowledge of qualify fresh local ingredients.

You have given us the most wonderful holiday, complete perfection in all we were spoilt with, the best boat to be privileged to be on the attention to our care, and enjoyment has been 2nd to none. The best gourmet food we have ever had. So many memories to cherish! Thank you most sincerely.
Julia T, aboard Sailing Yacht Pacific Wave sailing the British Virgin Islands
What an adventure on the Pacific Wave sailboat! Our hosts were so gracious, they described the different islands with an historical flair and always chose the best snorkelling spots. It was amazing to sail the Sir Francis Drake Channel and moor in an isolated, hidden away sheltered bay. It always felt like l was with trusted seaworthy people who had mastered finding the wind and sharing their passion for sailing.
Our meals were delicious and a great time to be merry and relax in such a beautiful setting. great sunsets and turquoise seas.
This trip definitely built wonderful memories of sky, wind, sun and sea.
Thanks so much for a wonderful week.
Joan & Tom Oregon, USA
Thank you very much for a wonderful week. Cant wait to go back home and show everyone all the photos of the things we have seen here. You guys have a pretty good setup!
All the best
Robert, Megan & Robbie Belfast, Northern Ireland
Our week with you was amazing. This was one of my bucket list, and the first big trip (many more to come) for Cindia and me. The beauty, the soft winds, the amazing dinners and lunches, and (gasp) breakfast you served were great! Now for 2 months of dieting.
We hoped to have good diving, and you arranged a special and more expensive outfit, that was just great! Cindia and l loved our diving, so beautiful.
Your kindness, warmth and good humour were just incredible. Thank you so much for a fabulous week!
Cindia & David and Cindy & Steven California, USA
Spent a wonderful week with you in the BVIs, our first trip here. Pacific Wave is such a beautiful sailboat. Marks culinary delights were amazing & delicious. Lynn is so meticulous and welcoming.

Marty & Susan NYC USA
What a week! You have spoiled us rotten the sails, the seas, the food, the laughs we couldnt have asked for a better way to sail into 2016 thank you!
Your knowledge and expertise of sailing and all of the secret spots and coves in the BVIs made for a wonderful week. We loved stargazing with that alien machine we will surely be talking about that device for years.
We were honoured to have had the chance to read excerpts from Marks book what an incredible adventure! We look forward to reading it in print someday soon!!
We hope you have a happy, healthy 2016.
Hope to see you both soon,
The Wagner Family.
Lindsay, Whit & Helen, Charlie & Henry Boston, NYC, Denver USA
Our second cruise on the beautiful Pacific Wave & every bit as good as the first cruise, if not better! Its hard to find words to express how you have both made this holiday just amazing.
We have spent an amazing week in paradise cruising around the Caribbean Islands of Martinique, Dominica & Guadeloupe. The crews local knowledge was excellent, they knew exactly where to take us on each island & it was such a treat for us to explore these new destinations. Weve enjoyed a week filled with great company, fantastic cuisine, lots of fun & great sailing on the beautiful yacht Pacific Wave. Chartering Pacific Wave has been awesome & we cant wait to return.
See you both soon.
Simon & Carol - Perth Western Australia

Thank you and many happy sail days ahead

Thank you for a great vacation aboard the Pacific Wave. I could not imagine a better way to spend my 40th Birthday! We cant wait to be back aboard, perhaps in the BVIs next time. Thank you again for the wonderful week.
Tom & Elaine LA USA
It takes a special crew to make a week in the BVIs special to our 89year old father. We cannot thank you enough for your patience throughout the week with an elderly old salt. My father was most impressed with Lynns sailing skills. To quote shes a hell of a skipper! Mark of course made his mark in our memory as a laid-back chef of considerable talent. To sum up, there would be no other vessel other than the Pacific Wave that could have made our time in the BVIs as special as it was. Furthermore, my fathers time in the BVIs (1950s, 1960s, 1970s) was the reason we took the trip. His happiness for returning one more time cannot be overstated! Thanks to you both for an incredible experience.
Ditto to my bros comments! Lynn & Mark were the perfect fit for us. Could not have been better at making sure 89 year old dad felt at ease! Loved your local knowledge and insight into the islands and creatures that live here!
The meals INCREDIBLE!!
Such special memories for all 4 of us. This has been a dream come true for my dad. To be sailing these islands with his 3 kids. Lynn & Mark are superb hosts. Their knowledge of the island, local flora & fauna and stories of their years of cruising these waters made each day a new and interesting experience. Not easy to sail with such an old croc (as my dad calls himself) but they were patient, gracious and attentive. Truly an experience to be treasured!
Liza, Andy, Tim & David New Jersey USA
Thank you for a super time. It was great to experience diving with Pacific Wave. Mark the food was terrific! Lynn we had some great sails. Terri

Very seldom do things go exactly as planned, almost never do things exceed expectations. this week was one of those times. The snorkelling was spectacular the sails were exciting, and above all, the company with Lynn and Mark seeing to our every need made this a wonderful week. Sadly now back to Philadelphia cold and dreary as it is this time of year but with warm memories with new friends in Mark & Lynn to keep the memories alive. See you again.
Thank you very much for taking us on a wonderful trip. You were fantastic hosts and we had an incredible time. Its going to be pretty tough to leave this all behind. Im glad we got to do this trip with you, and l wish you all the best

I couldnt think of a better way to spend our honeymoon! Im so happy Aaron found you!! We both absolutely loved all the meals onboard (I cant believe all those yummy dishes came out of Pacific Waves Galley! There is no excuse for me at home now), and the explorations to new islands everyday. Neither of us had been to the BVIs before, but now we will definitely come back. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, your stories, and your willingness to teach us about sailing whenever we asked. We will always remember this trip with such great memories. Thank you!
Aaron & Sabrina New York USA
This last week has been amazing! We have gone from tense to perfectly relaxed. Our skin from white to pink to tan and our livers pickled with Pacific Wave Rum Punch! Thank you for having us aboard Pacific Wave and providing us with new memories and a wonderful vacation!

Micky - London UK
Thank you for all your hard work these past ten days. You both went the extra mile to look after us by providing us with everything we needed, including obtaining a pigstick so we could fly the Royal Yacht Squadron pendant. The meals were delicious and the culinary creativity of Mark never ceased to amaze us.

What an incredible experience you have given us sailing in the BVI on your beautiful PACIFIC WAVE. I cannot begin to express my gratitude. You make such a good team the sailing, the accommodation, attention, THE FOOD, information about the area, etc., etc., etc. We loved the snorkelling, swimming, hiking, and watching the Super Yachts. Thank you for making all the arrangements off the boat as well. Every detail was covered. This has been a special week ..

Perfect vacation in every way!!! Great food, natural beauty beyond my imagination, fantastic snorkelling, impeccable service, and most of all, great company
Lynn & Mark
Thanks for a wonderful week of sailing & exploring the BVIs! Your knowledge & advice on travel options was superb. The food was amazing & the service was thoughtful & gracious. As bare-boaters for many years, your excellent service will make it hard to go back to DIY again. I admired your stealthy ways of attending to the many details of sailing while leaving your guests undisturbed. Bravo! We hope to be back again.
You guys are AWESOME!! Thanks for the recipes Mark we will think of you fondly when we try to recreate your masterpieces!

You know what??? We are happy . Why???
We thought we knew the BVIs, and a little about sailing but, but. We discover so many unknown places, new snorkelling spots and all that aboard an elegant sailing yacht. And more the comfort onboard SY Pacific Wave is top level Five Star ***** due to the permanent work of Lynn & Mark.
So .. everything is working perfectly onboard, sailing, comfort, anchoring choices.
More again . Lynn & Mark always smiling, always taking care of us, and permanently ahead of our wishes.
About the food now, we think unbelievable to find on a sailing yacht such a top level excellent cook. Mark has got a secret its the smile of Captain Lynn of course.
Thank you, LYNN, MARK & PACIFIC WAVE no end of dreams!
Louis & Anne Paris, France
The food served on board has been excellent due to Marks skill in the galley, and Lynns attentive service has ensured we were very well catered for.
All in all a great holiday!

Best, Averil & Asia
It is with heavy hearts that well step back on land from off the magical Pacific Wave. Lynn & Mark you did a fantastic job of looking after us all, responding to the hundreds of daily requests from our motley crew and making us feel so comfortable and welcome on your beautiful yacht. Rest assured we wont hesitate in recommending this fine vessel to ALL of our friends looking to sail The BVIs. We hope you have a fabulous 2014.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
For delivering such an unforgettable experience in the British Virgin Islands!
You guys are super organised. You work together as an amazing team with seamless ease, whether it be sailing the Pacific Wave, producing the most amazing meals with the panache of a 5 star chef to identifying what we wanted in our time on this fantastic yacht. Your incredible friendliness has been the icing on the cake.
No amount of research could have found the fabulous spots that your intimate knowledge of the Islands could. from snorkelling off Mosquito Island to super swanky cocktail bars and off the beaten track eateries with breath taking views.
Its been an absolute joy that we have been lucky enough to share your stunning yacht this week, and, whats more, l think you may have sparked an interest to start sailing as a hobby!!!
You guys are the best!!!
Viv & Nicky Dorset, England
I left the day as a complete surprise for Colin and he was completely gobsmacked when he saw Pacific Wave.
The day was perfect and Lynn and Mark let Colin sail us to Peter Island which he loved every minute of.
The food was outstanding 5 star restaurant standard. We also had a snorkel with Lynn and she was so knowledgeable about all of the different types of coral and fish.
I was thoroughly impressed with how professional but very friendly Lynn and Mark were, they made us feel at home. They have a beautiful yacht with all of the little touches of a 5 star hotel.
I cant thank them enough, they made a lovely holiday a very special holiday indeed.
What a fantastic trip! Highlights were three fantastic dives off the Dogs and Tip o Scrub. We saw turtles, a shark, eels, and a deep cave. The spa at Peter Island was incredible! Loved the Bitter End as well.
Lynn & Mark we loved it all, great laughs and great food! Mark you are now an expert at Canadian drinks.
Hope to see you soon!
Marci & Scott Toronto Canada
We so appreciate your kindness. It is apparent that you sincerely want your guests to have a world-class vacation, and we have! You make it look easy: sailing, cooking, and taking care of our every need all the while. We felt so proud to re-board the most beautiful sailboat Pacific Wave. We have enjoyed getting to know you both. Thank you for your lovely hospitality. You are an amazing couple with a beautiful yacht. We wish you the very best.
Karen & Mark St Louis, USA
It is hard to find words to express how you have both made this holiday just amazing! It has only been a dream to come to Paradise. Bless you both for making this amazing dream come true. You have both helped us make memories that would not of been possible without you. It would be totally awesome to have you both come to Perth, whenever you are free. Thank you Captain Lynn & First Mate Mark.
Lots of Love"
Carol & Simon Perth, Australia
Thank you for making this a wonderful vacation for us. Your beautiful boat and hospitality was a great way to enjoy our family vacation. Your Samurai Cook Look and results will top the Jamie Oliver craze. Come and see us in Austria and we will cook for you.
Hans, Trixi, Jacob, Max & Lilly Austria
Vince emailed me with the following glowing report about his charter with you (below in italic). You obviously did an over-the-top job to make this "the best vacation of their lives"! It's been an absolute pleasure working with you and I'll try and send some further business your way soon.
"It was the best vacation of our lives!
It was the best sailing we have ever done and we have sailed all over the world. I have been sailing for 53 years and my wife for 35 years. We took turns day by day and did most of the sailing. We covered a hundred miles.
Based on the vacation we are buying another boat. I am retiring next year and we are going to sail from San Diego to Seattle and Vancouver where we have family and friends and then to Hawaii and Tahiti
We are buying a new Island Packet 485(52)
Thanks for all your help in setting this up
I am recommending the cruise to several couples here at work
Vince & Jan"
My wife and l have been sailors all our lives. This is the best sailing we have ever done. The boat is awesome. The weather was fantastic. Every meal on Pacific Wave was perfect. Lynn & Mark are top notch sailors. Probably the best owner operator team we know of for chartering.
I have sailed all over the US, Europe, Hawaii and off western Canada, but my wife, Jan and l like the BVI the best so far. This was such a great experience it convinced us to buy a new boat ourselves.
Vince & Jan - California USA
Thank you for sharing your very special yacht with us. We had a lovely experience getting to know the beautiful BVI on Pacific Wave. The Rhone was a dive we will never forget!
Best wishes for fair winds & a million bubbles on your dives!

Thank you very much. The Waldrons wrote glowingly about their cruise
with you on Pacific Wave...
"Wonderful trip... Boat was great, accommodations really comfortable, food was excellent... Lynn and Mark made us very much at home, and we really enjoyed cruising the BVI... we had been there before at a resort, but being in various anchorages really was enjoyable, and
the sailing was something different for us, and we all learned a little bit. Everything we had hoped for....
Thanks. I look forward to sending more of our clients to cruise with you.
What a fabulous week of experiencing the BVI onboard Pacific Wave! We came having had all the resort experiences, and were hoping to have a different kind of vacation, and l can truly say our expectations were exceeded. The two of you made our stay so comfortable, with the fabulous food (thanks Mark), the great accommodation, and all the fun activities. As a family, the chance to spend time together in such beautiful surroundings, without the distraction of home, has been a gift. I know the snorkelling that the boys did will be something they will remember forever and Shane will certainly relish being rummy champ! For Wendy & Myself, l think being able to sit and enjoy the solitude and surroundings of all the great anchorages was a highlight, and an inspiration to get even more out of our motor boat at home! Thanks Lynn for going horseback riding with Wendy, a trip would not be complete without a hack! Maybe next time we will play golf instead though! Most of all thanks for making us feel so welcome onboard Pacific Wave, & for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us. Hope to see you up our way in Long Island Sound!
Cheers, Jeff, Wendy, Austin and Shane New York USA
An amazing week and a half sailing the BVI. The food is amazing probably the best chef in the BVI is on the Pacific Wave. But also the willingness to entertain two beach bums trawling the bars of the BVI. Brilliant to sail such a beautiful big boat with all the other boats taking pictures. Thanks Mark for teaching me to snorkel. Mel has done some of her best diving on the Rhone with Lynn. Dont want to get off.
Melanie & Adrian London UK

Upon arriving to the Pacific Wave we saw a beautiful yacht. Upon leaving, we saw it as that and so much more. We saw times of laughter, gourmet foods, exciting destinations, days of sailing adventures, fun explorations, and the gentle waves of the sea. What really made our experience amazing was the caring crew that took us on our journey. We have such wonderful memories of our voyage with you. We will forever remember the great times, delicious desserts, and awesome crew of the Pacific Wave xxx

Thanks so much. We have had a great time. We enjoyed each island and the diving was great. We really enjoyed the wreck of the Rhone. You let us snorkel at great places and we loved it.

Best, first & only 50th Birthday Ive had. Courtney & Mark

Dear Lynn & Mark
Ren (11) and Nina (9) said it best, Pacific Wave is a beautiful boat but Lynn & Mark made our trip! Thank you for making our family so comfortable on your gorgeous yacht. As Nina points out, you two make the perfect team. Some of the memories we will treasure the most:
- Dolphins welcoming us to Peter Island
- Marks Egg, Bacon & English muffin breakfasts
- Lynn snorkelling with Nina and teaching her about fish, coral, sea cucumbers & more .
- Hollie, Ren and David becoming certified Padi Divers!
- Ren taking the helm in 15-20 knot winds with encouragement from Captain Lynn
- Mark pulling Nina waterskiing & Ren wakeboarding
- Spotted Eagle Ray jumping out of the water off of Tortola (1st for us, 3rd time for Lynn)
- Gourmet dinners onboard Pacific Wave followed by stargazing Venus, Jupiter, Mars
Most of all we will remember your amazing hospitality!
Thank you Lynn & Mark for the most memorable week, we hope to do it again. Until then if you find yourselves in Kansas City, your KC family looks forward to repaying your amazing hospitality!
Hollie, David, Ren & Nina Family from Kansas City - USA
Thank you so much for making our honeymoon the most amazing time. We will look back on our week with you, each and every year, with such fond memories. Lynn you are truly a great sailor. Thanks so much for teaching Ash as much as you could in a week and for encouraging me to take the helm! We will also go away with great memories of your Pacific Wave cocktail! Mark, you amaze me! The meals you can create in a yachts galley is a feat that not many could do! The food has been exquisite in taste and presentation. You have inspired me to learn to make homemade pasta! That will be one of my culinary challenges for 2012.
The knowledge you both possess on the BVI adds so much to your guests cruise. Knowing the best places to go, see, eat etc., dependant on a guests needs is invaluable.
I definitely think this is the most relaxed l have every left a holiday and its all thanks to you both. You are such wonderful people who took wonderful care of us.
Thank you so much for sharing Pacific Wave with us.

This has been a week in paradise in every way! Thank you so much Lynn & Mark please stay in touch
After a close encounter with the local night life we set sail for a relaxing week with Pacific Wave. The days drifted by blissfully fuelled by a plentiful supply of rum punches and a five star menu executed to perfection by samuria chef supreme Mark. Weather perfect, turtles friendly, scuba & snorkel most successful a great vacation onboard Pacific Wave. Thank you!
For a pregnant women to start her entry in the guest book raving about the food may be a bit clichd. but with food like this.! We started off the week with Marks Dorado Stacks, sailed through every starter and entre sent up the stairs and demolished the most amazing Thanksgiving spread! I and everyone onboard enjoyed every bite and will try our hand at the Dorado Stacks back at home thanks to the Dining on Deck Cookbook which features Marks recipe. During the occasional non-eating moment, this pregnant woman even took the wheel under Lynns supreme guidance. Thank you both Lynn & Mark for a spectacular week, next time well rig up the playpen in the dinghy!
Our vacation onboard Pacific Wave started with a bang! An aggressive drinking night at the Fat Turtle (in Yacht Haven Grande, St. Thomas) followed by a week of well needed relaxing on the open seas. Caribbean Thanksgiving might be the only way to do it! Thank you Mark & Lynn for an unforgettable Holiday!
Party of 5 adults - New York - USA
Thank you so much for such a lovely trip! The food was delicious, the service was fabulous, and we are leaving you tanned, rested and relaxed! Youve set the bar pretty high for our newly-married life we expect smooth sailing forever!
We had such fun watching the epic battles between the pelicans and the tarpon, diving the RMS Rhone, and eating that delicious vegetable terrine!
Thank you again for giving us such a wonderful start to our honeymoon!
Liesel & Ian New York - USA
The past week has been what us Paddies call the craic! . Great times, great food, great laughs and a great adventure!
Never in the entire history of navigation have two land-lubbers been more saddened by hearing land ahoy on the day of their departure!
See you both soon we hope, (whether UK, West Coast of Eire or back here).
Bon voyage, safe trip, god bless you both and all who sail with you.
Tom & Pauline London - UK
Thank you so much for the loveliest week ever! Just stepping on the boat from a long plane ride, and immediately being swept up and away to the most beautiful islands, was an experience that we will always remember and cherish!
Great food, charming company, lots of laughs and contented sighs. What a miraculous week! Thank you so very much!

Wow! that was the shortest week ever! It was just a week ago when l boarded your beautiful yacht to celebrate my big 50th shhh!!! Birthday. The days have gone quickly as each day was filled with delightful fun memories. Loved all the stories of places we visited, loved the amazing yummy meals eggplant stacks, tamarind chicken, the bacon, Howies English breakfast, most especially the Grog forever to be known as a Pacific Wave at my house!
The turtles, the rays, my huge sand dollar were all fantastic, but the best part of the trip for me was spending time with dear old friends and meeting two special new ones. Good luck with all your ventures and travels and l hope to be with you again soon!
All the best and many, many thanks xxxxxx
PS Thanks for your help with boats and touring the English countryside. Oops! Forgot to thank you for the very special birthday card in my stateroom upon arrival and the chocolates
Lynn & Mark,
After ringing the bell for having you place the most dinner reservations at the most restaurants for the same date in the most different countries, our cruise in the BVI with some of our intended guests was crack on! Thank you.
From Sopers to Norman, to Peter, to Marina Cay via Guana, Mosquito and Biras Creek, to Anegada for Lobsters and Grog and return, to Marina Cay via Leverick Bay and Great Dog, you spoiled us with fine cruising, good food, and a hell of a lot of fun!

Thank you very much for a fantastic 7 days! I loved the snorkelling and thought the wakeboarding was great fun. It was wonderful to learn about winching and catching the tuna was an added bonus! Many thanks Oscar, aged 14
Thank you both so much for this week. It has been fantastic and I have particularly enjoyed the snorkelling, waterskiing, drinking Ting and sunbathing, but to be honest l have loved it all!

Thank you both for an excellent week on the Pacific Wave. It was a highlight of the whole year.

"What a fantastic holiday, & beautiful boat! Thank you for looking after us all so well & putting up with all of our different -- & often conflicting requests.

We appreciated so much to be sailing on a real sailboat with such a serious, and pleasant crew, that took such good care of the boat, as well as of the customers. The sailing was great. The food was great (thank you Mark in particular). Lynn, you were a fabulous skipper this week. And thank you for letting us participate in the sailing and the handling of the boat, in
particular our teenagers Carl & Jenny, they appreciated that a lot. We hope to be back soon! - Sigbjorn
Thanks for giving me the best time of my life! Sailing with you on your yacht was like visiting paradise! It was really inspiring as well! Now Im already planning to crew on a boat next year!

Thank you both for a really enjoyable sailing experience. This was Phyllis first sailing trip and she could not have had a better crew you have made a convert of her (my thanks for this!). Pacific Wave is a very special boat (Im very jealous) and you both made us feel very relaxed at all times (a great achievement given the market turmoil!!). Your knowledge of the area was a great benefit and snorkeling (the first time for Phyllis) in the Tobago Cays was marvelous. And talking about enjoyment, Marks meals were fantastic - we feel very spoiled. Thanks for everything you are truly great hosts. Please do come visit us next time you are in the UK we would love to see you both there. Warm regards."
Peter & Phyllis London UK
On behalf of the grown-ups... thank you for EVERYTHING! We felt special and spoiled the entire week. The anchorages were perfect many were new to us in spite of several other bareboat charters in the BVI. The boat is special and gorgeous. And the food was beyond our wildest dreams. For all of us (kids too), some highlights are: Averys first water ski, Wreck of the Rhone by snorkel!, Seeing one (or more) sea turtles each day, The sail from White Bay to Sopers Hole, Our private beach on Mosquito Island, Keeping us away from the bad fish, Our night out together at Biras Creek & Saba Rock, Beatrix sleeping under the stars!, Isabels love of kayaking and starchy food ... swimming around the boat, Getting to know you both a little and swapping tales Thanks for the passage! We hope that youll come North. It would be our pleasure to host you - and show you around land or/sea in Rhode Island or Weston MA. Fondly.
Meg, Jonathan, Carter, Avery, Beatrix & Isabel Weston MA, USA
We leave you rested and full of memories to keep for a lifetime! From the moment we stepped aboard until our day of departure you made us feel so welcome and comfortable, attending to our every need. Thank you for allowing John to share the helm (he was in his glory), for filling us with your amazing meals, and showing us the beauty of both the US & British Virgin Islands. It was such a pleasure to get to know both of you, and we thank you for sharing Pacific Wave with all of us. If you ever bring Pacific Wave to Nantucket please let us know perhaps we can return a bit of your wonderful hospitality.
Best wishes to you both.

"Sailing on Pacific Wave has been a relaxing, fun time. I have to admit that l approached this adventure with a bit of trepidation would l be able to enjoy the voyage while worrying about mal de mer. Knowing that l had lots of support eased my concerns. You all were terrific. Your knowledge of the boat and the area helped me relax. Wonderful food, comfortable accommodation, and most of all, great company created lovely, memorable times. Merci.
Barbara Salt Lake City
Lynn & Mark Barbara & l thoroughly enjoyed this 7 day sail. You both were just wonderful sailing skills, attention to your guests & lovely personalities. We so appreciate your professionalism, friendship, attention to every need, wonderful meals, and a fine horses neck (Dark & Stormy). Thank you. We recommend you highly, had a wonderful time and are grateful for your great hosting &captaincy. Thank you.
Jim (AKA Jimmy Bob) Salt Lake City
Dear Lynn & Mark We have spent years bareboat chartering. What a pleasure it has been having you to plan our day sails with us, and providing such wonderful meals. It has been a spectacular voyage. OK many superlatives have come your way from our entire crew. They are well deserved. But let me add what might be a unique thought. Pacific Wave and its crew created an atmosphere where three couples, friends but not yet comrades, turned the corner and developed feelings for each other that are deeper, richer and more enduring. What a gift we received from each other. The sun, the ocean, & Pacific Wave were essential. The two of you provided the ingredients to work the magic, thank you both.
Michael Salt Lake City
Aboard Pacific Wave, a beautiful and elegant yacht handled by Lynn & Mark, a beautiful and elegant couple! Nonpareil service, sensational food, wonderful comradity. All in all a week to long remember. And, the added touch of captain to mate, and mate to captain referring to each other as Darling. You two are wonderful and deserve nothing but fair winds and smooth seas."

We were lucky to be with you for our honeymoon charter. We searched long and hard for the right boat and crew for this most extraordinary moment in our lives. We placed our trust in you, and in Pacific Wave, and we were rewarded one-hundred fold! We are so grateful to have spent this blissful week with you upon your magnificent yacht. She is a unique and singular experience floating in the World. She was meant for you and Mark, and we are blessed to have sailed with you both. Lynn, you are our captain. Mark, you are a culinary inspiration. And now, you are our friends. We wish you and Pacific Wave
the future you deserve, and send you our love and gratitude.

What was more fun? Wakeboarding around Le Chiffres mega yacht, the divine poached eggs and bacon or seeing the genoa unfurl on the passage from Sopers Hole to Norman Island? Getting the balance between looking after your guests and bothering them and letting them have a go at sailing and being in control is a fine art which you do really well!
The boat is of course beautiful! The excellent cooking solved the Caribbean food problem completely and left even the best restaurants (Biras Creek) in the shaded. Thank you for a first class week! We hope to sail with you again sometime
Also had an excellent time! I loved wakeboarding, being under full sail and seeing the dolphins!

In the face of unexpected events, Lynn & Mark accommodated our needs and gave us a home to return to. The last few days of sailing have been outstanding. The boat is immaculate and the food a continually unfolding gastronomic delight! I shall miss all the company, the laughter, learning about shepherding. Come to Canada. We sail there too! Thank you

You all gave us a great and memorable week aboard Pacific Wave. She is a beautiful, seaworthy boat and sails magnificently, a rare combination. Our sail to Nevis, Monserrat, Guadeloupe & Iles des Saintes was tremendous fun. You all looked after us wonderfully and worked so hard in some fairly lumpy seas. Marks work both above and below decks amazed us. Out one minute working the boat, the next producing terrific meals. We have both sailed all our lives and therefore really appreciate the hard work you put into making our week with you special.
Let us know if you bring Pacific Wave North we would love to see you there too. Thank you all for a really terrific week."
