CAPTAIN CRISTIAN SEQUENZIA
Cristian Sequenzia, friends call him Cri (pronounced Cree), is the descendant of a proud and storied ancestry. He grew up in ancient Ortigia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic island is at the heart of the naturally fortified harbor of Siracusa, Sicily, Italy. It is the birthplace and homeland of many famous seafarers. Cri, with his knowledge and passion for seamanship, is a credit to these forefathers.
Cri was sailing with his father as far back as he can remember. He had his sea legs before he could run, and was swimming, diving and fishing as a small boy. After college, he went to work for a company that manufactured special parts for yacht construction. He specialized in carbon fiber composites, learning about yachts from the earliest stages of the build process.
In 2012, Cri brought his expertise to Sagittarius’ extensive refit. “When I had the offer to start working on Sagittarius I didn’t think twice. I quit my job to spend a year and a half on board, eight months of refitting and 10 months sailing around Europe and the Caribbean. I love sharing my passion for the sea with our guests; diving, snorkeling, swimming off secret beaches, exploring remote coves, pointing out turtles and birds' nests. I also love having fun water skiing, wakeboarding, and every kind of fishing.” With his many talents and joie de vivre, guests on board Sagittarius are certain to love sharing in all the fun too!
MATE / STEW ILONA FRICOVA
Ilona grew up in an idyllic setting, in a storybook Czech village surrounded by woods. The family’s daily routine included caring for lots of animals and tending the garden. They shared a deep love and respect for nature, animals and people. Ilona’s parents had built a canoe, and the family enjoyed most holidays on rivers and lakes. Together they spent time canoeing, camping and fishing. Ilona got her first fishing license when she was just 10 years old, and she has been fishing ever since. Today, she happily shares fishing tips and fish prep and cooking tips with interested charter guests.
Ilona is very energetic. She excels at all types of sports, including tennis and swimming. She modestly mentions that she “collected a few trophies in snow skiing competitions in the Czech mountains”. She is also an avid diver with many certifications including Rescue and Deep Diver, and has achieved Yachtmaster Coastal Certification. She is a very patient instructor with guests of all ages interested in learning to snorkel, or manage the yacht toys. Family charters are her favorite, organizing activities for everyone to spend quality time together.
Four years ago, Ilona began sailing in the Canary Islands and the Balearics. She recognized immediately that yachting is an amazing facet of the hospitality industry. It ignited her passion. She said, “I kept thinking about people who are very busy, a rushed lifestyle with a stressful daily routine. Almost everyone has experienced this. It can be very difficult to slow down, escape from busy work routines. Everyone needs to relax. My goal is to help by providing guests the time and space to relax, to switch off and re-energize. That is the most important part of a good vacation. I take care to do my best for my guests to have fun and create unforgettable memories. And what a pleasure it is to consider this as a job!”
CHEF RICCARDO LENER (Winter Season - November to April)
Riccardo has a profound passion for cooking. He has been working in restaurants since he was 16 years old. He is a master at pleasing a variety of tastes but his real forte is his native Italian cuisine, including regional and national gourmet specialties. In addition, he is happy to provide special diets, kosher, gluten-free etc.
Riccardo is also a professional sommelier. Oenophiles will especially appreciate perfectly paired wines with each delicacy that he creates. Riccardo is adept at seasonal menu planning according to guest preferences. He provisions the freshest ingredients from local markets. His goal is always to please the palate of charter guests, from sophisticated haute cuisine to home-style cooking.
Riccardo is equally enthusiastic in the creative, exotic preparation of seafood or steak as a gourmet burger with fries, or traditional Continental recipes. Kids love pizza and pancake faces. Everyone delights in waking up to the aromas of freshly baked breads and cakes.
