Non smoking crew.
Graham is a lifelong sailor, growing up sailing with his parents on several different cruising yachts. His sailing experience is long and diverse, in addition to cruising sailboats and luxury catamarans he has also sailed, and raced, Hobie cats, sailing dinghies, iceboats and sand sailers. Graham is also an experienced scuba diver, avid windsurfer and enjoyable guitar player.
Pam is a Florida native, enjoying many types of powerboat watersports since childhood, including skiing, snorkeling, surfing and fishing. Raised with the influence of Southern Hospitality, Pam has made cooking a hobby since her teen years and especially enjoys using fresh local ingredients in her meals. After sailing with a friend, Pam took sailing classes in 1999 and has been hooked ever since.
Their attention turned to their Engineering careers, and they met while working for a fast-paced high tech firm and married in 2002. Realizing they had a common dream of sailing theCaribbean, their goal soon became to live a sailing lifestyle. In 2007, they quit their jobs, sold their house and moved aboard their 40’ sailboat, bound for the Caribbean. Over the next 3 years they sailed between the Eastern Caribbean, Bahamas and Southeast US Coast. Knowing they wanted to work in the sailing industry, they acquired their Captains licenses in 2009. During 2010 & 2011, they both worked in Florida as charter captains and ASA sailing instructors. Pam’s love of nature led her to captain an eco-tour boat as well. Involved in the local yacht club, Pam was Rear Commodore, responsible for hospitality, event and menu planning and Graham served as dock master. But, the beautiful Caribbean was calling them back. In early 2012, they moved to the island of Vieques, PR to manage a small resort where Pam often cooked arrival dinners for guests and special event catering for large groups. The desire to sail againled them to work with Azulia in 2013, where they are currently sailing in the British Virgin Islands, the USVI and the Spanish Virgins.

Graham was awesome and did a great job of captaining the boat while keeping our family entertained! Graham was always willing to do what ever was needed to make sure we were satisfied. The kids thoroughly enjoyed tubing and knee boarding whileGraham drove the boat. There was nothing more that Graham could have done to make our trip more enjoyable.
Pam was absolutely fantastic as well. She prepared some of the best meals that we have had and catered to our every need. She also was a great guide and pointed out thebest snorkeling spots in all of the islands that we visited. We hope to get some of Pam's recipes!
The Azulia 2 is an amazing boat that is pristine. The space on the boat is incredible and everyone on our trip always felt comfortable and had plenty of room to relax. The beds in the staterooms were awesome! I am trying to find the same mattress for my home!
We had a great itinerary recommended by Pam and Graham. We felt like we saw and did everything that we wanted to do while in the BVIs. There is plenty to do for everyone. My son and I loved the fishing! Almost caught a tarpon!
This was one of the best vacations that our family has ever taken! We can't wait to do it again.

Dear Pamela and Graham,
Now that we are home again and have time to remember and reflect on our week with you on Azulia from 4th - 11th February, I just wanted to contact you to thank you both for your wonderful help in the total enjoyment of our week. John and I loved everything about the boat and the care you gave us.
The meals are memorable, delicious and varied and wonderful to have such fresh and imaginative salads everyday, when at sea! We loved the quiet bays, the snorkelling and swimming everyday, it did us both a lot of good and we are so pleased to have had such a great opportunity on your lovely boat.
Your care and kindness when my blood testing kit died, it helped me relax and I have an appointment with my diabetic nurse next week to sort it out properly. Thank you for organising the lovely lobster supper and Champagne to welcome John to his 78th year!
All in all it was a superb week thank you and love from Anne and John.
Pam & Graham
I thought that I must send you our thanks for the great time we had with you last week. We arrived home yesterday to a very dreary England not much like the BVI although it is quite spring like today!! You both looked after us all in a terrific and unobtrusive way which is just what we all wanted. I have personally never been sailing before and done so little which at first seemed very strange but soon got used to it. Very many thanks to you both and Azulia which we all loved.
All the best for what ever the future holds for you both.
Stephen & Rachel

Yes. Everything we hopedand more. Spacious and clean. The flying bridge was a great place for apps and reading and sleeping.

Everything was perfect I tell everyone what a great time we had and that this was the best… vacation... EVER- I would and do recommend this vacation and crew to everyone.
Pam and Graham were the perfect crew. They gave us the perfect amount of time for ourselves and the correct time to mingle with us. They were extremely caring. We made memories that will last for a life time. We can not express our thanks and our appreciation enough. When I first read the reviews as I was selecting a yacht and crew I had difficulty believing the glowing remarks, but now I am a believer.
9. When do you plan to charter next?
God willing... next year
