Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for BLISS
Captain: Gary McKinnon

Gary hails from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, where, as a young lad, his love for the ocean was quite evident as his parents would often have to head down to the nearby beach after dark, to haul him out the waves where he would be body-surfing or wave-ski riding!

Gary has traveled extensively and has dived and sailed most of the Indian Ocean Islands after being introduced to the yachting world by his brother-in-law, whilst sailing and chartering his catamaran in Madagascar back in the late nineties. This was the catalyst for him going on to be a RYA Yacht master Offshore, and now a Dive master. After crewing on a delivery of a 50ft Voyage catamaran from Cape Town to Tortola, Gary decided this was where he wanted to be!

Coming from a strong sporting and catering background, he is always keen to be “out there” doing something active, be it in the galley or on the water, under it, or on land.

Chef/Mate: Leanne Ho-Chung

Leanne has been in the customer service industry for two decades. Her experience is extensive and varied ranging from Chef/First mate on private catamarans and term charter yachts to serving in fine-dining restaurants and bars, luxury hotels and B&B accommodation.

Having previously held positions as a chef, deckhand, restaurant supervisor, fine dining waitress/ bartender, personal chef and dive master in various countries around the world, all of these vocations have required exceptional people skills and social interaction, both of which come naturally to me. Strong work ethics and professionalism is of utmost importance.

Leanne is always willing to cater to any palate. Her passion for cooking allows her to experiment with many different flavors whether it be Asian or Mediterranean, North American or Caribbean. Leanne's main focus is keeping food as healthy as possible using as many fresh ingredients available. Of course dietary requirements are always taken into consideration.

Testimonials

A report back from a Travel Agent that assisted in booking catamaran BLISS for her clients for an early August, 2017, charter...

I checked in with the Tapper party, and the 2 main ladies in charge of the booking had the following to say about the charter...

From Sue Mascaro:
We had a fantastic time on the catamaran. Captain Gary was great and his love of the sea was evident. He was very informative about all of the places we went and mostly left us alone to go on our adventures. He did take us on a walk to a hidden cove with a natural pool and brought us champagne! Leanne the chef was equally as great and an amazing cook. The food was crazy good. We loved just sitting around and chatting with them. We would definitely travel with them again. We all had such a great experience. Thanks again for your assistance and another trip in the books! Everyone loved how different this trip was. 

From Carla Tapper:
Our trip was amazing as Sue said. Gary was the best, he really loves what he does. Leanne made the most amazing meals, everything was completely made from scratch. We definitely did not drink anywhere near as much as we thought, kept very busy plus you dont really want to drink as much with all the swaying. You should defiantly use ___ again, the boat was exactly what we expected and more. Funny thing is that Gary kept saying we were such a short charter with the average being 7 nights, I think that would have been a bit too long. Maybe 5 nights at the most. And the guys and kids said it was by far their favorite part of the trip.

Guests aboard BLISS with Gary & Angie in early May, 2016:

Thank You for the Wonderful week. Best Birthday ever! The food and drink and laughs with such good friends and beautiful weather. Angie, your smile and amazing food - we will be back to see you. Gary, you are a natural captain, caterer and entertainer! Please come visit us in the USA. 

With much Love and fond memories - Carolyn and Lee

Thank you Gary and Angie for the trip of a lifetime, minus THE RAIN! Gary - I thought I ordered no rain?!? Good thing the sun came out with the delicious food and beverages. Everybody was Happy! What a trip! 

Nicole and Philip

Thank you so much for making us feel at home! You spoilt us rotten and made the trip all we had hoped for and more. John and Diane
