Originally from Montreal, Canada, Benoît studied business administration before realizing that the 9 to 5 grind wasn’t for him. He fell in love with sailing after a trip with friends and decided to turn his life around. He left his hometown for Split, Croatia to learn how to sail and worked as a skipper around the Mediterranean delivering unforgettable yacht charter experiences for 4 years. After completing an Atlantic crossing in 2018, his next bucket list item is to tackle the high seas of the Pacific Ocean. Ben has a STCW certification and holds a RYA Yachtmaster with commercial endorsement.
Also from Montreal, Charlie started cooking at 4 with her grandmother. From that moment on, she made it her mission to learn new techniques and discover flavours from all over the world. After completing a formal training in culinary arts and as a sommelier, she worked in various restaurants and made her way to management and executive chef positions while earning a master’s degree in business administration. Being a chef on yachts allows her to combine her passion for cooking, desire for adventure and love of the sea. Always seeking to learn more, she is also completing her PADI - DIVEMASTER program and is aiming for the PADI - INSTRUCTOR certification in September 2021.
