Meet the crew!

Captain Chris Carstens: Captain Chris is a lifelong sailor. Growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chris raced Hobie Cats, offshore racers and other sailboats at the highest levels. In 2017 while winding down his corporate career he purchased Heliades, a 44’ Fountaine Pajot Helia Evo catamaran, from the factory in France. Chris and his wife Heidy have enjoyed exploring and cruising the Caribbean from Grenada to the USVI’s.

In 2019 Chris obtained his USCG 100-ton Master Credential and in 2021 became an accredited ASA instructor for Courses 101, 103, 104 and 114 and has been teaching courses in Kemah, Texas until the end of the hurricane season. Chris is offering 5-7+ day Captain only charters and/or ASA sailing classes in St Martin which gives students and passengers a relaxing atmosphere to learn and enjoy the beautiful sailing conditions of the Caribbean. As the owner and Captain of Heliades, Chris will also provide basic instructions on docking, anchoring, engine systems, water makers, generators and all the systems a sailor would need to learn to sail or even purchase their own boat if you are interested.

As well as being a keen instructor out on the water, Chris is also an avid scuba diver and kite boarder and will support all guests that would like to include watersports whilst out on charter to ensure all of your needs are taken care of!

Chris’s goal is to make sailing relaxing and fun for all onboard in a stress-free environment whilst creating unforgettable charter memories for his guests!
