6 guests in 3 ensuite cabins, crew in 4th ensuite cabin.
Ren is from picturesque Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. The Canadian city is on the St. Marys River with access to the Great Lakes. Ren started boating even before he started school. He and his family spent as much time as possible out on the water. He says, “We were a family of four boys. My Father always had us on a boat. I built my first sailboat, actually converted a rowboat into a sailboat, when I was in the 5th Grade. I have always loved sailing and being on the water. I want others to have as great an experience sailing as I do.”
Sailing may have been Ren’s first passion, but he has pursued other interests with equal vigor. Watersports of course, kayaking, paddle boarding, parasailing, diving, and free diving. He is quite musical; sang in the choir, played drums in a band, and plays the ukulele. He has studied yoga for 18 years and is dedicated to the practice. Friends describe him as funny, outgoing and calm. It is the perfect balance for a charter captain. He is a wonderful host who can remain composed in any situation.
Ren’s favorite destination on earth is the Bahamas. These islands rise out of the most beautiful waters and offer the best beaches in the world. He makes every effort not to miss a single detail that will lead to the best possible experience for his guests. As the Captain and host aboard GUINEVERE, Ren eagerly shares his life on board, his yoga practice, his ukulele repertoire and his favorite island spots to create an unforgettable charter vacation.
Mate/Hostess Michelle Amiel
Michelle grew up in the suburbs of Montreal, Canada, with an older brother and younger sister. She was always very active outdoors; camping, fishing, skiing, and horseback riding. She was also a lifeguard at a young age and was awarded Queen of her hometown. She was a volunteer working with children and seniors and took young children annually to a French Immersion Riding Camp to learn French.
Michelle spent as much time as possible away from urban life, in the wilderness and on the beaches. Eventually, she moved to Vancouver Canada to live in the mountains and to be closer to the ocean. She says, "In Vancouver I sailed monohulls. I prefer the energy of the water and the simple peaceful life it offers to be on a sailboat.” She has a degree in dental hygiene and worked in this industry for thirty years. She is also a yoga instructor and holds a Yoga Teachers Certificate, and coaches breathing, wellness, leadership, and a healthy lifestyle.
Michelle enjoys a high-level of personal involvement with her guests. Friends describe her as personable, patient and kind, which is why so many of her guests become lifelong friends. She is an excellent guide and instructor for yoga, snorkeling, free diving, breathing, meditation, aromatherapy, and preparing healthy smoothies and foods. Her motto: Why wait, do it now! The Bahamas beckon.
Chef Abi Collomb Gregor
Chef Abi grew up in what was once a rural area of West Palm Beach. In those days the beach was only 20 minutes away from where she lived, so she had the best of both seaside and country living. She was a natural athlete as a child and loved adventurous sports of any kind. She enjoyed climbing trees, surfing, running, soccer, volleyball, rollerblading, and winning numerous awards in competitive swimming (USS). She also inherited award-winning artistic talent through her matriarchal DNA; her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother are/were all painters.
As an adult, Abi’s skill set and accomplishments in a couple of decades surpass what most people manage in a lifetime. While her greatest enjoyment is cooking for others, it is based on her nurturing spirit and caring personality. Her many achievements, certifications and coursework include: Ayurvedic holistic college, certified EMT1, massage therapy training, Reiki 2 attuned, yoga instructor, Ski Patrol (search & rescue), STCW 1, ICC, silver service, S&R, wine pairing, disaster relief work, Vice president of Project Earth Ambassadors, Burning Man Art support and aerial arts performer.
Abi has years of experience as a yacht chef and understands the importance of catering to guests’ preferences. While her favorite food to prepare and to eat is seafood, she is skilled at vegetarian and restricted diets. But, for those without limitations, she likes to include on her menu a few of the appetizers guests consistently rave about, like bacon wrapped, goat cheese stuffed dates. Abi’s motto is “make something out of nothing”. The reality is, Abi makes everything something special.
