Meet the Crew

Mike & Lizzy Hill

Mike and Lizzy met as crew racing on a yacht and have now been sailing together for 10 years. Together they have sailed throughout the Mediterranean as well as the Caribbean Leeward Islands, British Virgin Islands and Spanish Virgin Islands. Most of this time has been aboard charter yachts providing luxury vacations. Welcoming guests aboard with a friendly, warm attitude and an eye for detail Mike and Lizzy consistently provide vacation of a lifetime for their delighted guests.

Having sailed from an early age, Mike’s passion for boating in general has gained him a wealth of knowledge on sailing and motor yachts up to 80ft long. He likes to pass on his enthusiasm to everyone on board, encouraging and teaching others more about sailing. Mike has been lucky to have sailed in many areas of Europe and the Caribbean both personally and professionally, including logging over 20,000 nautical miles in the last 4 years alone as a captain aboard crewed yacht charters. A great sense of humor combined with a professional approach, an open and relaxed manner, not to mention his skills behind the bar, ensures Mike gets all guests to enjoy every moment aboard.

Lizzy developed her love of cooking with fresh local produce stood on a chair helping her mother prepare meals in the family farmhouse kitchen. Following a degree in Outdoor Pursuits where Lizzy learnt to sail, she travelled the world by land and sea. The experiences Lizzy had at this time influenced her cooking and expand her repertoire. After adding the finishing touches at the prestigious and world renowned Ashburton Chef Academy in the UK, Lizzy now takes great delight in combining two of her passions; serving up beautiful tasty food her guests enjoy and, of course, sailing!

Lizzy and Mike were exceptional. Great attention to our safety, comfort, experience on the water and being sure that we were well taken care of. This was a family cruise celebrating my birthday, Mike and a Lizzy made it special. AOIBH was the best cared for and appointed of any of the sailing charters I’ve booked. PERIOD
April 2018
What an exceptional week! My family and I came aboard with great excitement - not disappointed. Lizzy & Mike made us feel quite a home aboard AOIBH. Captain Mike is an exceptional sailor which was evident the minute the sails were hoisted. and Lizzy was a good complement with her sailing skills and a Chef extraordinaire. We were treated to the best meals, forced to eat homemade breads repeatedly.

Many thanks Lizzy and Mike, your attention to safety, tireless work skills and good humor were most appreciated.
Ken -

What a great time! Playing on the water, playing under the water, playing on the surface of the water and playing in the rainforest. First paddle board xperience and I stood up...mostly. Fabulous advice on where to go, what to see, what to do and how to avoid tat jewelry. the recommended hikes/walks with great views that got better around every corner.

Lizzy and Mike you both were so welcoming & calm & caring from day one to the (sadly) end. You turned an extraordinarily location into a spectacular vacation. Thank you for everything!

Hi Mike, Lizzy & Toby,

FA and I wanted to drop you a personal note to say thanks for everything you did during the trip and I think I speak for everyone in saying we all enjoyed it and appreciated your hospitality.

We also now appreciate the “hard yards” Mike did, especially when not feeling well (the steaks were brilliant - no offence Lizzy😀) as we have one by one, come down with the same thing and FA even needed to go to the Clinic here in Barbados yesterday!! She is on the mend and hopefully the rest of us will recover fully in a couple days.

Best regards to you both,

E & FA L

Dear Mike and Lizzy,

From our first foot aboard until the last you were both wonderful hosts and such an excellent skipper & chef partnership. You greeted us with a warm welcome that set the tone for the whole holiday .... thank you.
The on-board accomodation was spotless and somehow the colour schemes throughout the cabins and craft maintained the feeling of calm and luxury that the Windward Islands promised ... not even the odd choppy crossing put us off - loved the gingerbeer tip. Even when it did rain on those few occasions, you quickly ensured we kept dry! Your suggested mooring places were stunning and we thoughly enjoyed being able to take that 'first thing in the morning' dip before getting ready for breakfast. Thanks Mike for the gentle approach to water tubing - you allowed me to go 'just fast enough'!!

Lizzy, your menus were balanced, varied and tastebud pleasing. Every meal was a delight from Mike's pre-dinner cocktails and table settings to your meals prepared with care to bring out flavours we all enjoyed .... our highlight had to be the steak you selected and marinated before cooking them to all our varied requirements ... nothing seemed too much for you both but we know only too well how hard that is to achieve. I so enjoyed your handmade sushi - brilliant flavours and presentation ... and thanks for your alternative lunch for Tony. The variety of breakfast was a first for us ... we've only ever been provisioned with standard breakfast fare - cereals, toast yogurt juices & coffees and occasional alternatives.... becomes a bit monotonous which your menu avoided! The variety of menu over the two weeks was superb and those of us requiring minor adjustments to your mouth-watering menu were made to feel special rather than a nuisance. Your fish and chicken dishes were all such good quality, introducing us to local jerk menus as well as the British & Mediterranean cuisine you promised. The off-catamaran Lobster lunch experience was amazing. Wines were of excellent standard and complimented all your superb meals.

You are both such lovely people, warm and generous but professional to the last. Mike, your first-class helmsmanship shines out - the safest of skippers if ever we had to name one!

Thank you again for a great trip - we'd willingly recommend this as a brilliant charter experience,
C & T D

Dear Mike & Lizzie,

What a trip!! Thank you so much for looking after us so well on the beautiful Aoibh! We had the best time thanks to your amazing hospitality, great navigational skills finding some of the most breathtakingly beautiful spots, fantastic company, wonderful meals and stunning scenery! The list goes on!

I’m hard pressed to pick a favourite moment but the beach shacks in Bequia, swimming with turtles in Tobago Cays, and drinking rum and drumming with locals on Meyreau!

Lizzie your cooking skills too were next level!! Thoroughly depressed not to have your wonderful meals every day!

The trip has given us some amazing memories to treasure and I’ve attached a few of our fav photos!

Thanks again!

Hi Mike & Lizzi!

We hope you’re well!

We’re now back in gloomy old England after 10 days in the mountains of Slovakia. Although it was nice, it’s difficult to compare it with the tranquility of what you guys have out there!

We just wanted to say another huge thanks for what will be one of the most memorable trips of our lives! Your knowledge of the area and ability to barge your way to the front of any mooring spots didn’t go unnoticed Mike ;) And Lizzi, I genuinely mean it, if you ever think of quitting sailing, you will have a long and prosperous career as a top Michelin Star chef! They will come from far and wide for your food, we promise! :) I just can’t imagine the havoc you could wreak in a full sized kitchen!

On that note, can you send a picture of the cheese cake recipe from you book of secrets? We want to try and create it once more, TRY being the key word there!

I’ve attached a handful of pictures of what we thought were some of the best parts of the trip, feel free to use them and share them with other guests if they want to get an idea of what it looks like to be covered in egg smelling mud!…

I hope we’ll get to catch up one day in the future and when you’re in the UK, if we have a track day on, come along and I’ll show you life in a slightly faster and definitely less relaxing way!

All the best for now and a huge thanks once again!

Excellent trip
Mike and Lizzy,
I just can not thank you enough for the spectacular week we spent with you two on the boat.
I was a nervous wreck about this trip and being at the mercy of the sea in a boat for that long but you both made it so relaxing and enjoyable the whole time. I never once felt my anxiety kick in and want to go home :)
We all knew we'd get along good since we often vacation together as a group and you two just blended right in with us. Between Lizzy's amazing meals she prepared and Mike constantly pushing us beyond our comfort zones to try new things it will be a trip we never forget. I can't wait to try these recipes to see if they match up as hers did.
Mike you could have shared your playlists with us a little earlier in the week because 4 day's of Kenny was enough :)
Hugs to all and keep in touch!
Brenda and Todd
