Captain: Hector Bell
Hector has been a professional skipper for eight years, accruing more than 50,000Nm in that time. Originally heralding from the Lake district in the UK, he has called Corfu his home in more recent years. As a permanent resident of the islands Hector is a well respected member of the local sailing community and is a known face in many of the ports you’re likely to visit.
Hector first came to work in the Ionian in 2014. Aged just 20 at the time he assumed the role of a flotilla skipper. In this position he took responsibility for a small fleet of guest operated yachts carrying up to 40 guests during any given week. Effectively dictating most aspects of the guest experience along the way.
Having sailed the region for a good many years Hector's knowledge of the Ionian is extensive. His guests benefit from insight gained during years of charter in the region. Just tell Hector what type of experience you’re looking for and he can put together an itinerary specifically catering to your group's requirements. As time passed Hector went from strength to strength as a skipper. Proving himself an excellent organizer, he became a regional manager for a charter operator in the Ionian a few years later. It speaks to his maturity that despite being younger than many of those he managed, he was the one trusted with the position. Hector earned a reputation as a level-headed and highly reliable individual and became a real lynch pin in day to day operations.
In more recent years, (since the world was introduced to a certain pandemic,) Hector has worked as a freelancer in the Ionian. Despite the difficulties placed on the tourism sector in the past two years Hector has been kept busy by virtue of his good reputation. We look forward to welcoming Hector on-board Grace for Summer 2022. We are certain that he will provide her guests with the best and most amazing sailing experience!
Stewardess: Lucy Jellett
Lucy is a young energetic individual born and raised in Sussex in the South East of the UK. Lucy has always had an interest in sport & is passionate about football in particular. Even going so far as to study sport for two years at college. Lucy has always been on the look out for new and exciting opportunities. She has a passion for travel that manifested in two years working in hotels and chalets in the French Alps. She worked e.g. in the winter as a chalet host/ chef. A role in which she would strive to look after up to 26 guests during any one week. Its these two years spent overseas that left Lucy keen for more seasonal work. Following up on this idea she got her STCWs last year with an aim to finding a stewardess role.
Lucy’s work ethic, professionalism and likeable persona impresses her guests and crews alike. With an extensive background in hospitality and in customer facing roles, Lucy is perfectly suited to the deck/ stew role on Grace. She is excellent with children of all ages, having worked in several childcare capacities in the past and is ready to welcome her guests of any ages and provide them with the best sailing experience ever!
Chef: Michaela Williams
Although Michaela may be new to working on yachts she is certainly no stranger to working in the food industry! Having worked in various kitchen settings from the age of 15. Between cafe’s, resturants, events catering, sports grounds and even a stint working on boats on the London thames! Michaela’s workplaces have been varied and she has a lot of experience on which to draw. While Michaela calls London home she has a particular passion for travel and has spent long stints travelling around Asia and Australia in past years. We have it on good authority that she picked up a love for cooking asian cuisine while travelling. Michaela’s reppetoire is varied and her ability to cater to a wide range of tastes undoubted. She’s passionate about using good quality fresh local ingredients and making the most of their flavour profiles to provide top quality food. Michaela is looking forward to providing some amazing dishes in keeping with the local mediterranean setting this summer. Keen to learn the ropes and enthusiastic about the summer ahead we’re sure she’ll prove an excellent addition to the team. We look forward to welcoming her onboard Grace for the coming season.
