Mike and Lizzy can’t wait to share their love and knowledge of the Caribbean and all it has to offer! Their excitement is contagious. They met racing yachts in their home waters over 10 years ago. After cruising around the Mediterranean; Greece, Croatia, France and the Amalfi coast they turned their love of sailing into a full-time career: moving to the British Virgin Islands to run crewed yacht charters in 2014.

With 100+ charters to their names, Mike and Lizzy have taken their guests sailing not only in the Virgin Islands, but also other amazing locations including St Martin-St Barths-Anguilla, Antigua-St Kitts & Nevis, Martinique-St Lucia and the unforgettable St Vincent and the Grenadines-Grenada.

Mike and Lizzy pride themselves on making guests feel safe, welcomed and pampered with their friendly, warm, professional approach and an eye for detail, leaving you with nothing to do except focus on the beauty of your surroundings and enjoy your holiday of a lifetime!

Mike loves the ocean and has been sailing all his life. His passion has gained him a list of maritime credentials and a wealth of knowledge on sailing and motor yachts. He likes to pass on his enthusiasm to everyone on board, encouraging and teaching others more about sailing. A great sense of humour combined with an open and relaxed manner, not to mention his skills behind the bar, ensures Mike gets all guests to enjoy every moment aboard.

Lizzy grew up cooking with fresh local produce in her family farm kitchen before her adventurous spirit took her to university, where she learnt to sail, and then around the world by land and sea! Her experiences influence her cooking and expand her repertoire. She added some finishing touches at the prestigious Ashburton Chefs Academy in the U.K., and now delights in 2 of her passions - serving up beautiful tasty food she knows her guests will adore and sailing!

Crew are fully vaccinated for COVID 19.

BVI 21st – 27th April 2024 “Not one moment of stress.”
Thank you for an incredible week of sailing! It was an amazing week filled with wonderful food and laughs! SF Definitely the coolest and most fun trip of a lifetime. Hope to see you both in the future for another trip! AT We are so grateful for Mike and Lizzy making this such an incredible trip in our favourite place. Thank you for making it so spectacular! CFC & KC What an amazing charter, you gave our family many new memories in these beautiful islands. It was stress free and there was amazing food! TF Dear Mike and Lizzy, Thank you so much for giving our family a fabulous week together. The new memories in these beautiful islands have been amazing. Your knowledge, experience and impeccable meals made our time together so relaxing, not one moment of stress, unlike our normal lives. This paragraph is not enough to express our gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Fondly JF
BVI 29th March – 4th April “Great trip to the BVI”
Everything is 5-stars. Mike and Lizzy were so nice and always wanted us to have the best time. SL Good trip – great snorkelling – Mike and Lizzy are always hard at work. PL Thank you for the trip. My experience was amazing – y’all are so polite and fun! BL Much gratitude for leading the snorkeling when I was afraid! Lizzy you’re an amazing cook! God Bless TL
BVI 24th-27th March 2024 “Wish we could have stayed for longer”
Thank you so much for our stay! I loved all of the meals and the places to snorkel. You made our trip very fun and exciting. THANK YOU!! LB Thankyou Mike and Lizzy for a wonderfully relaxing time on board the Sandy Cinco. Many wonderful memories of beautiful sunsets and delicious food. Thank you for looking after us so well. RB What a wonderful experience we have had – we will miss being on board. Thank you for taking such good care of us. CB Thank you so much for taking us on such an amazing trip! You always knew how to make the most of our time, and I wish we could have stayed for longer. (Also, the food was delicious – especially the sausages!) GB
BVI 15th-21st March 2024 “An amazing family vacation!”
Thank you, Mike and Lizzy, for an amazing family vacation! Seeing dolphin while sailing, swimming with a nurse shark, viewing turtles popping their heads out of the water – all was incredible. C&J H There was good food! TH age 7 I love the pancakes! BH age 5 Thank you, Mike and Lizzy. You are the consummate hosts! A special thankyou for making this such a great time for my grandsons. CB
March 2024
Lizzy was/is warm, friendly and very hospitable. Her selection of meals and cooking were outstanding (we knew this from our last charter). She especially went out of her way with Brandon as he got interested in helping with the anchors and lines. She also was great at trying to satisfy the boys (Tyler – 7 and Brandon – 5) with food that they would eat. Tyler is very difficult and Lizzy always kept a smile on. Lizzy is a very pleasant person to be around and always trying to please. Mike is a confident, competent and professional captain – just what you want on a charter. His take charge personality was especially evident when my son-in-law got injured and Mike made sure he got the care he needed. Mike was always checking to be sure we were doing/going where we wanted to go. If a change was necessary, Mike would discuss and offer options as well as his opinion. As a former, many time bare boat charterer, having Mike take care of everything made the trip so much more enjoyable. I will admit that Mike can be a little grumpy in the morning before he has had his coffee but I suspect I am as well. Despite, sometimes being stern with the boys (when required), Mike was wonderful a couple of times getting Tyler out of a funk and getting him to enjoy himself (as stated earlier – Tyler can be a challenge). They both became part of the family but were never intrusive and made the trip most enjoyable.
BVI 2nd – 9th March 2024 “Such wonderful memories from this week”
Thank you for the most wonderful week of Spring Break. This was the third trip with Mike and Lizzy and the most memorable yet! The slide show at the Bills Bar ‘Tipsy’ on Anegada will live on forever! I’ll miss you desperately!! CC Easily one of my favourite birthdays ever 😊 My most memorable snorkel (aeroplane) and most memorable pirate show (oh boy!) I absolutely cannot wait to come back & I’ll be sure to bring a friend! AG Mike and Lizzy once again have outdone themselves! One of my favourite things was snorkelling through a cave. Not too far behind that is tubing and just chilling. Once again, Mike and Lizzy have made our trip awesome. AG It keeps getting better & better, but that seems impossible! Many thanks and hugs for a wonderful week in the BVI – this magical mystery tour was indeed magical!! Such wonderful memories from this week – the food, the fun, the sunsets, the snorkels. Can’t wait until next time! S&I G

Your hospitality was generous and engaging and getting to know you guys was one of the best parts of this fabulous cruise. K&J C PS The French 75s rocked 😊
BVI 27th January – 3rd February 2024 “5 star food, 5 star drinks, 5 star fun!“
We just love being us! Best vacation of our lives by far. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. Mike and Lizzy, you gave us experiences that we will never forget! J&J W This is our second cruise with Mike and Lizzy – the first was on Lady Fiona – we quickly realised that the boat is just the building point for the luxury experience they curate. Their attention to detail extends from the hand-picked bedding and towels to providing a wonderful sound system for all to share. Sandy Cinco is a beautiful, new to charter boat that their expertise has transformed into a beautiful, entertaining experience. Their expertise, even with the behind-the-scenes preparation, is what makes the vacation beyond expectations! Thank you – D & L E 5 star food, 5 star drinks, 5 star fun! This crew, with this boat (and this group of friends) has created a trip of a lifetime. Mike & Lizzy, Thank you for giving us your all. The memories generated over 7 days will live with us larger than life. We feel like family thanks to you. Unbelievable experiences just pop up from every opportunity.

Thanks, LB Lizzy & Mike, I fell in love with the Caribbean once again, but I’m already plotting our next sail with you… the BEST crew in the BVI…should I cry upon departure? Yes! And I will be back. Thank you CL Lizzy & Captain Mike, I’m as happy as Larry! Thank you. Be well. DF
BVI 28th December 2023 – 4th January 2024 “Words cannot express how absolutely magical this sailing vacation was“
We’ve been here a number of times and we thought we knew everything. But this voyage was on a new, and wonderful, level – the perfect itinerary, the amazing meals, the warmth and knowledge Mike and Lizzy bring to every hour of every day – thanks so much for a wonderful, wonderful week. DB Mike and Lizzy, I truly have no words for how meaningful this trip has been for us. You guys made it so spectacularly fun and easy – we are SO grateful! We will be talking about this trip FOREVER. No exaggeration. We loved every minute. Last night we went over our favourite parts and we couldn’t even choose! So many memories. We will miss you both! But I have a feeling this isn’t the last you’ll be seeing of us 😊 XOXO SB Thank you, Mike and Lizzy – we had the best, most magical week aboard the Sandy Cinco! SC WE LOVE SANDY CINCO!! Seriously wonderful – beyond expectations. EC & LB Mike and Lizzy, this was our first time sailing and it was beyond perfect. The boat, locations and food and drink exceeded everyone’s expectations! We can’t thank you enough. B&S C Dear Mike and Lizzy – Words cannot express how absolutely magical this sailing vacation was… the perfect itinerary, the delicious meals (every single one of them), the attention to detail… down to the journey map to remind us of all the stunning places we visited, and the hospitality from the morning we boarded to the morning we disembarked. I was lamenting the end of our trip and Sophie shared this quote: ‘Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened!’ A million thankyous from us all. MB

Christmas 2023
I have received back some absolutely wonderful words from the Clark family and am so happy to pass this along: "We had an unforgettable week. The boat was perfect for us and Mike and Lizzy were just fantastic. We can’t imagine a better vacation. It was our best yet." -Catherine "We’re still talking about how great the trip was! I have no complaints other than we can’t come back right away! [...] The boat was great and fit our needs perfectly. The full Bimini up top is a great upgrade. I really can’t say enough good things about Mike and Lizzy. We’ve done other trips and they were far and away the best crew we’ve had. Meals were great, the right amount of interaction, and activities/anchorages that were unique and out of the way that demonstrated greater effort and care. They handled our specific family needs perfectly. We’d follow them to another boat!" - Lloyd I cannot thank you both enough for the effort; I certainly look forward to booking with you again!
BVI 16th -24th November 2023 “Delightful fun and memories we won't forget.”

BVI 23rd -29th June 2023 “The most magical few days.” The most magical few days. From snorkeling in calm, amazingly blue waters to climbing over rocks and through caves at The Baths, Mike and Lizzy are the best hosts. Lizzy’s food was beautifully presented and tasted even better. Mike stories and directions were spot on! Even the rain did not dampen our trip. Thanks for a lovely holiday! TS A once in a lifetime trip! Everything about the trip was amazing! The food was spectacular: every single meal was new and so delicious. I ate too much because I couldn't stop eating the food Lizzy prepared. Mike did a spot-on job of keeping us away from crowds, finding the best snorkeling spots and setting us up for stunning sunsets. I cannot recommend Mike and Lizzy and the Sandy Cinco enough. The service was perfect, and they know how to give the best BVI experience. We can't wait to come back! J&T S Celebrating Kate’s birthday on the boat on the boat was special!

Mike and Lizzy can’t wait to share their love and knowledge of the Caribbean and all it has to offer! Their excitement is contagious. They met racing yachts in their home waters over 10 years ago. After cruising around the Mediterranean; Greece, Croatia, France and the Amalfi coast they turned their love of sailing into a full-time career: moving to the British Virgin Islands to run crewed yacht charters in 2014.

With 100+ charters to their names, Mike and Lizzy have taken their guests sailing not only in the Virgin Islands, but also other amazing locations including St Martin-St Barths-Anguilla, Antigua-St Kitts & Nevis, Martinique-St Lucia and the unforgettable St Vincent and the Grenadines-Grenada.

Mike and Lizzy pride themselves on making guests feel safe, welcomed and pampered with their friendly, warm, professional approach and an eye for detail, leaving you with nothing to do except focus on the beauty of your surroundings and enjoy your holiday of a lifetime!

Mike loves the ocean and has been sailing all his life. His passion has gained him a list of maritime credentials and a wealth of knowledge on sailing and motor yachts. He likes to pass on his enthusiasm to everyone on board, encouraging and teaching others more about sailing. A great sense of humour combined with an open and relaxed manner, not to mention his skills behind the bar, ensures Mike gets all guests to enjoy every moment aboard.

Lizzy grew up cooking with fresh local produce in her family farm kitchen before her adventurous spirit took her to university, where she learnt to sail, and then around the world by land and sea! Her experiences influence her cooking and expand her repertoire. She added some finishing touches at the prestigious Ashburton Chefs Academy in the U.K., and now delights in 2 of her passions - serving up beautiful tasty food she knows her guests will adore and sailing!

Crew are fully vaccinated for COVID 19.

BVI 21st – 27th April 2024 “Not one moment of stress.”
Thank you for an incredible week of sailing! It was an amazing week filled with wonderful food and laughs! SF Definitely the coolest and most fun trip of a lifetime. Hope to see you both in the future for another trip! AT We are so grateful for Mike and Lizzy making this such an incredible trip in our favourite place. Thank you for making it so spectacular! CFC & KC What an amazing charter, you gave our family many new memories in these beautiful islands. It was stress free and there was amazing food! TF Dear Mike and Lizzy, Thank you so much for giving our family a fabulous week together. The new memories in these beautiful islands have been amazing. Your knowledge, experience and impeccable meals made our time together so relaxing, not one moment of stress, unlike our normal lives. This paragraph is not enough to express our gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Fondly JF
BVI 29th March – 4th April “Great trip to the BVI”
Everything is 5-stars. Mike and Lizzy were so nice and always wanted us to have the best time. SL Good trip – great snorkelling – Mike and Lizzy are always hard at work. PL Thank you for the trip. My experience was amazing – y’all are so polite and fun! BL Much gratitude for leading the snorkeling when I was afraid! Lizzy you’re an amazing cook! God Bless TL
BVI 24th-27th March 2024 “Wish we could have stayed for longer”
Thank you so much for our stay! I loved all of the meals and the places to snorkel. You made our trip very fun and exciting. THANK YOU!! LB Thankyou Mike and Lizzy for a wonderfully relaxing time on board the Sandy Cinco. Many wonderful memories of beautiful sunsets and delicious food. Thank you for looking after us so well. RB What a wonderful experience we have had – we will miss being on board. Thank you for taking such good care of us. CB Thank you so much for taking us on such an amazing trip! You always knew how to make the most of our time, and I wish we could have stayed for longer. (Also, the food was delicious – especially the sausages!) GB
BVI 15th-21st March 2024 “An amazing family vacation!”
Thank you, Mike and Lizzy, for an amazing family vacation! Seeing dolphin while sailing, swimming with a nurse shark, viewing turtles popping their heads out of the water – all was incredible. C&J H There was good food! TH age 7 I love the pancakes! BH age 5 Thank you, Mike and Lizzy. You are the consummate hosts! A special thankyou for making this such a great time for my grandsons. CB
March 2024
Lizzy was/is warm, friendly and very hospitable. Her selection of meals and cooking were outstanding (we knew this from our last charter). She especially went out of her way with Brandon as he got interested in helping with the anchors and lines. She also was great at trying to satisfy the boys (Tyler – 7 and Brandon – 5) with food that they would eat. Tyler is very difficult and Lizzy always kept a smile on. Lizzy is a very pleasant person to be around and always trying to please. Mike is a confident, competent and professional captain – just what you want on a charter. His take charge personality was especially evident when my son-in-law got injured and Mike made sure he got the care he needed. Mike was always checking to be sure we were doing/going where we wanted to go. If a change was necessary, Mike would discuss and offer options as well as his opinion. As a former, many time bare boat charterer, having Mike take care of everything made the trip so much more enjoyable. I will admit that Mike can be a little grumpy in the morning before he has had his coffee but I suspect I am as well. Despite, sometimes being stern with the boys (when required), Mike was wonderful a couple of times getting Tyler out of a funk and getting him to enjoy himself (as stated earlier – Tyler can be a challenge). They both became part of the family but were never intrusive and made the trip most enjoyable.
BVI 2nd – 9th March 2024 “Such wonderful memories from this week”
Thank you for the most wonderful week of Spring Break. This was the third trip with Mike and Lizzy and the most memorable yet! The slide show at the Bills Bar ‘Tipsy’ on Anegada will live on forever! I’ll miss you desperately!! CC Easily one of my favourite birthdays ever 😊 My most memorable snorkel (aeroplane) and most memorable pirate show (oh boy!) I absolutely cannot wait to come back & I’ll be sure to bring a friend! AG Mike and Lizzy once again have outdone themselves! One of my favourite things was snorkelling through a cave. Not too far behind that is tubing and just chilling. Once again, Mike and Lizzy have made our trip awesome. AG It keeps getting better & better, but that seems impossible! Many thanks and hugs for a wonderful week in the BVI – this magical mystery tour was indeed magical!! Such wonderful memories from this week – the food, the fun, the sunsets, the snorkels. Can’t wait until next time! S&I G

Mike was an excellent captain and Lizzy was a 5-Star chef. It was perfect in every way. The memories we go home with will last a lifetime. Your hospitality was generous and engaging and getting to know you guys was one of the best parts of this fabulous cruise. K&J C PS The French 75s rocked 😊
BVI 27th January – 3rd February 2024 “5 star food, 5 star drinks, 5 star fun!“
We just love being us! Best vacation of our lives by far. Everything about it exceeded our expectations. Mike and Lizzy, you gave us experiences that we will never forget! J&J W This is our second cruise with Mike and Lizzy – the first was on Lady Fiona – we quickly realised that the boat is just the building point for the luxury experience they curate. Their attention to detail extends from the hand-picked bedding and towels to providing a wonderful sound system for all to share. Sandy Cinco is a beautiful, new to charter boat that their expertise has transformed into a beautiful, entertaining experience. Their expertise, even with the behind-the-scenes preparation, is what makes the vacation beyond expectations! Thank you – D & L E 5 star food, 5 star drinks, 5 star fun! This crew, with this boat (and this group of friends) has created a trip of a lifetime. Mike & Lizzy, Thank you for giving us your all. The memories generated over 7 days will live with us larger than life. We feel like family thanks to you. Unbelievable experiences just pop up from every opportunity. Cheers to “Sandy Drinco” and the best crew on the water. D&L O’L
BVI 6th -10th January 2024 “We loved it all – stem to stern, morning ‘til the stars dazzled us: The trip of a lifetime.”
Having been on many charters, it’s good to be able to say that this is the best of them all! Mike and Lizzy are the best hosts/counsellors – telling us the daily play that could change due to weather or our desires. We can’t imagine a better crew who seemed to sense our every desire. We loved it all – stem to stern, morning ‘til the stars dazzled us: The trip of a lifetime. SL & BM Dear Mike and Lizzy. Thank you for the absolutely magnificent sailing adventure. You gave us all an experience we’ll always remember. It was filled with moments of fun, lively moments, fresh sea air, beautiful sights, delicious food and thrilling events. You are extraordinary hosts who have made this trip extraordinary. With warmth and appreciation, DB You said “Think of this as your home for the next week,” And you meant it!! Thanks, LB Lizzy & Mike, I fell in love with the Caribbean once again, but I’m already plotting our next sail with you… the BEST crew in the BVI…should I cry upon departure? Yes! And I will be back. Thank you CL Lizzy & Captain Mike, I’m as happy as Larry! Thank you. Be well. DF
BVI 28th December 2023 – 4th January 2024 “Words cannot express how absolutely magical this sailing vacation was“
We’ve been here a number of times and we thought we knew everything. But this voyage was on a new, and wonderful, level – the perfect itinerary, the amazing meals, the warmth and knowledge Mike and Lizzy bring to every hour of every day – thanks so much for a wonderful, wonderful week. DB Mike and Lizzy, I truly have no words for how meaningful this trip has been for us. You guys made it so spectacularly fun and easy – we are SO grateful! We will be talking about this trip FOREVER. No exaggeration. We loved every minute. Last night we went over our favourite parts and we couldn’t even choose! So many memories. We will miss you both! But I have a feeling this isn’t the last you’ll be seeing of us 😊 XOXO SB Thank you, Mike and Lizzy – we had the best, most magical week aboard the Sandy Cinco! SC WE LOVE SANDY CINCO!! Seriously wonderful – beyond expectations. EC & LB Mike and Lizzy, this was our first time sailing and it was beyond perfect. The boat, locations and food and drink exceeded everyone’s expectations! We can’t thank you enough. B&S C Dear Mike and Lizzy – Words cannot express how absolutely magical this sailing vacation was… the perfect itinerary, the delicious meals (every single one of them), the attention to detail… down to the journey map to remind us of all the stunning places we visited, and the hospitality from the morning we boarded to the morning we disembarked. I was lamenting the end of our trip and Sophie shared this quote: ‘Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened!’ A million thankyous from us all. MB

Christmas 2023
I have received back some absolutely wonderful words from the Clark family and am so happy to pass this along: "We had an unforgettable week. The boat was perfect for us and Mike and Lizzy were just fantastic. We can’t imagine a better vacation. It was our best yet." -Catherine "We’re still talking about how great the trip was! I have no complaints other than we can’t come back right away! [...] The boat was great and fit our needs perfectly. The full Bimini up top is a great upgrade. I really can’t say enough good things about Mike and Lizzy. We’ve done other trips and they were far and away the best crew we’ve had. Meals were great, the right amount of interaction, and activities/anchorages that were unique and out of the way that demonstrated greater effort and care. They handled our specific family needs perfectly. We’d follow them to another boat!" - Lloyd I cannot thank you both enough for the effort; I certainly look forward to booking with you again!
BVI 16th -24th November 2023 “Delightful fun and memories we won't forget.”

Whether snorkeling the amazing reefs, seeing fish so colourful and the turquoise blue water. The boat and accommodations are luxurious and first class. Always a place for relaxing or even playing games if it is inclement weather. Then there is the food - wow! Better than any five-star restaurant! Mike and Lizzy made sure we had delightful fun and memories we won't forget. CR & TR
23 -29 June 2023 BVI
BVI 23rd -29th June 2023 “The most magical few days.” The most magical few days. From snorkeling in calm, amazingly blue waters to climbing over rocks and through caves at The Baths, Mike and Lizzy are the best hosts. Lizzy’s food was beautifully presented and tasted even better. Mike stories and directions were spot on! Even the rain did not dampen our trip. Thanks for a lovely holiday! TS A once in a lifetime trip! Everything about the trip was amazing! The food was spectacular: every single meal was new and so delicious. I ate too much because I couldn't stop eating the food Lizzy prepared. Mike did a spot-on job of keeping us away from crowds, finding the best snorkeling spots and setting us up for stunning sunsets. I cannot recommend Mike and Lizzy and the Sandy Cinco enough. The service was perfect, and they know how to give the best BVI experience. We can't wait to come back! J&T S Celebrating Kate’s birthday on the boat on the boat was special!
