While working as a Day Charter Captain and Sailing Instructor in Chicago, Michael met Brittany as she was pursuing her goal of learning how to sail. The two of them soon realized their mutual dream of living and working on the water in the Caribbean, fell in love, and started planning to make their dream a reality.

Together they’ve sailed over 10,000 nautical miles in the Mediterranean, along the East Coast, Lake Michigan, and in the Caribbean. One of their favorite passages was sailing from Faro Portugal to Valletta Malta to deliver a sailing yacht for the Rolex Middle Sea Race. They have also worked on private super yachts, honing their hospitality skills and learning the finer points of yacht service and care.

The two of them take great pride in providing 5-star service while ensuring their guests have an unforgettable experience. When not sailing or entertaining, you’ll find Michael and Brittany scuba diving, practicing yoga, riding bikes, or enjoying a day at the beach.

Michael’s love for sailing started at a young age, when on vacation in Mexico his family charted a sailboat for a day. It was on this trip that Michael knew he had found his dream career.

Michael spent many years learning how to sail in Chicago, eventually becoming the Fleet Manager and Lead Instructor for the school that taught him so much. To this day, his passion for teaching others how to sail shows whenever he meets someone eager to learn. Many of his students have gone on to a career in sailing, including several currently working on their own circumnavigations.

Along this path, Michael has found great joy in scuba diving and focused on becoming a leader both above and below the water. As a PADI Dive Master, Michael enjoys leading certified guests of all skill levels under the waves. While diving, guests will experience a world far different than the one they leave behind when they come on vacation.

Whether fishing, free diving, snorkeling or scuba diving, Michael is a natural leader and enjoys sharing these activities with his guests. His warm, welcoming personality will make you feel right at home while relaxing in paradise.

Brittany became a professional yacht Chef through the marriage of her main passions in life: food, travel, and the great outdoors. She’s worked as a Private Chef for high profile clients and is comfortable cooking you a wide variety of cuisines.

Brittany’s love for being on the water was instilled in her from a young age where she spent her summers boating, waterskiing, and tubing on lakes in the Midwest. Thanks to the help of her handsome sailing instructor, she now holds a 25T Master USCG License with a Sailing Mate endorsement. This, coupled with her experience in the galley makes her a well rounded 1st Mate.

Brittany was blessed to be raised in a family full of good cooks, and has enjoyed cooking for friends and family from a young age. While pursuing a Bachelors degree in Environmental Sustainability, she immersed herself in the Farm-to-Table movement by working in both restaurants and on many of Chicago’s urban farms, growing specialty produce for top-tier restaurants in the Windy City. After graduation, she went on to complete an internship with one of Sonoma County’s oldest wineries, teaching her the basics of viticulture and igniting her interest in food and wine pairing.

Brittany loves bringing people together through food and looks forward to providing you with a unique culinary experience.

This has been the most magical week! Y’all are the coolest and best hosts. I never ever imagined that our stay would be the way it was. Kieran thank you for being so patient with me on the first dive and Michelle thank you for your kindness and the smooth way about you. Y’all are amazing. Morgan x

Thanks for a perfect trip! Everything was great from the bedrooms + food to the diving and water sports. You provided an experience we’ll never forget! James

To the best crew in the Caribbean! Kieran and Michelle, thank you for all your hard work to make our charter super sick. Every day was amazing and filled with good vibes. Also thanks for letting us help with the boat, I love to learn new things, so thanks for your patience. We all now consider you two family. Vance

Kieran and Michelle. Thank you for the most amazing week! This trip was even better than we could have ever imagined. Kieran thanks for being so patient and teaching me how to dive. I’m glad I was able to recover from my first bad experience. We really enjoyed diving and all the water sports you took us to do. Most importantly thanks for teaching me sail. I think I’m ready to be first mate now :) Michelle your cooking was absolutely amazing! One day I need lessons from you. Thank you both for being such great hosts! We hope you come to Utah and take a trip to Lake Powell and Zion with us. We will definitely be back on the Twin Flame again! Necia

Thanks for making our area trip even better than I imagined it would be you two are a great Captain & 1st Mate and now are our friends. Thanks for all the fun and memories you helped us create this week. Tom & Laura

Kieran & Michelle
WOW! This trip truly exceeded all of our expectations. We are all so grateful to you both for helping create family memories that will last a lifetime. You both are now a special part of our memories and lives. I thank you for all of your patience, guidance, kindness and friendship. In some ways we came on this trip different people than when we started amidst Covid-19 you provided us a much needed escape and sense of normality. We leave with a great sense of adventure many having tried SCUBA Diving and Mia loving it and new wakeboarding and foiling also. Michelle was an inspiration with cooking recipes and helped grow our appreciation for the sea and the USVI and the underwater adventures. Until next year.
Sincere Gratitude The M. Family

Kieran & Michelle
You guys are so amazing! In one week we went from never having met you to feeling like you’re part of our family! You are welcome and invited to visit us any time you wish. You made our trip one of the best family vacations ever. So many cool experiences this week. Mia diving with me will be one I’ll cherish forever. Thank you got everything - Can’t wait to see you again next year! Rod

We can’t say enough good things about Brittany and Michael. They are sweet and kind, knowledgeable and professional. It was obvious from the moment we met them at the harbor that their goal was to make sure we had the most perfect experience possible, and we did. They were both attentive to everyone, as a group, and to each of us, individually. The personal service was excellent.

Michael and Brittany were flexible and accommodating in every way. We really appreciated that they were also very safety conscious. The itinerary was perfect.

Brittany’s chef skills are 5 stars+. 3 full meals each day that were better than you would have in any resort. Not only 3 meals a day, but snacks a plenty, appetizers at happy hour, and homemade desserts every night. We celebrated John’s birthday with champagne and key lime pie (his favorite) complete with candles and decorations. Wonderful cocktails, too.

We are hoping to do another yacht charter with them next year, so that really tells you all you need to know. We will be in touch.

Jean H., Colorado

We wholeheartedly agree with Jean’s assessment. Mike and Britt were exceptional. Felt like family at the end of the trip. They knew timing to get us to great spots for snorkeling, etc. when they knew there would be few if no people.

Karen S., Colorado

Claire and I had an absolutely wonderful vacation aboard the Tabula Rasa. Brittany and Michael were very hard working, very professional, but also just a lot of fun to be with. From the very moment we met them getting out of the taxi at the marina, they completely took charge and basically treated us like royalty the entire trip. Every day was a special day with a new island location, the best snorkeling I have ever done, a few really nice remote island hikes, the best cooked meals and some really good mixed drinks (thanks Brittany!!) and on and on...! Also, Michael and Brittany are very well trained/experienced as captain and crew...they are a great team!

We absolutely plan to come back next year and sail with Michael and Brittany again!!

Brittany & Michael,

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! WE could not have asked for nor could we imagine any better pair to captain a week of magic for our family. We LOVED every minute learning from y'all, planning with y'all in and out of the water, and getting to know y'all this week. Thank you for spoiling us in every way possible. We had the BEST week on tabula Rasa ALL thanks to the calm, relaxing, balanced with fun and positive energy you both exude. Did you ever imagine so many question could basked? Wishing you both the best until we meet again!

Happy 2020! Thank you!!

We had a great time on Tabula Rasa with Brittany and Michael. They were incredibly accommodating and met our every need. Every meal was extraordinary! Wish we could stay another week. One of our favorite experiences was snorkeling at the caves and we really enjoyed the day on the beach at Soggy Dollar on Jost Van Dyke. We hope to return very soon! Thanks, Brittany and Michael for everything.
