Captain Eddy Guzman started travelling at a young age. The rest of his childhood was mostly spent in Paris. At ten he had his first racing experience on an Optimist sail boat in France, and he ended up with a career as a Captain between Europe and the Caribbean.
He has worked as a sail instructor as well as water skiing instructor. Eddy holds a French Yacht Masters and MCA (unlimited) 200 ton license, and is fluent in English, French, and Spanish. He has skippered boats up to 90' in the Eastern and Western Med, Croatia and Balearics, as well as having cruised the entire Caribbean during his 10 year career.
Still, the best thing about Captain Eddy Guzman is his winning smile and "can do" personality, coupled with his hands-on capability with sailing and mechanics to ensure your time on board will be fantastic.
First mate and Chef Katka Jacz is a Dutch citizen who has lived and worked around the Caribbean for many years. She met Eddy in St Maarten and together they have sailed many deliveries and worked on day sailing charters together around St Maarten. Her duties have been as varied as snorkeling instructor and safety supervisor, to hostess and mate.
Katka grew up close to the beach with a love of sports, especially those in and around the water. She is an avid kite-surfer and holds a PADI Divemaster's certificate.
