BLUE PASSION Crew Profile
Captain Greg Langridge
Born in St Albans in the UK, Greg started sailing from the age of 10 and gained his RYA Offshore Yachtmaster (Commercially Endorsed) qualification when he was 18.
Greg has worked on a number of different boats, including North Sea hydrographic survey boats, undertaking sea trials on Round The World Challenge boats and as the delivery skipper on a wide variety of boats to different Mediterranean locations.
He also spent several seasons as a flotilla skipper in Greece and Croatia, gaining his Cruising Instructors qualification along the way.
Greg is a qualified PADI Dive Master and diving is allowed from the yacht for certified divers as a small additional fee.
Greg's dream has always been to own his own luxury yacht charter company. A year spent in the Caribbean as skipper on a luxury 57' catamaran gave him a real insight into what makes a successful and enjoyable sailing holiday for people and he has used this knowledge and experience to set up Blue Passion Sailing with his partner Vanessa.
Hostess / Chef Vanessa Langridge
Born in Brest, North West Brittany, Vanessa started sailing on Hobie catamarans in France and since meeting Greg, she has developed a love of and passion for sailing, gaining a huge amount of experience on boats of different sizes and in different countries.
As an experienced chef, Vanessa likes to use local fresh food wherever possible to produce beautifully cooked meals for her guests.
As First Mate, she is able to assist Greg in sailing the boat when necessary as she holds the MCA STCW 95 and the RYA Powerboat certificate.
The experience of working as hostess aboard a 57' luxury catamaran in the Caribbean with Greg proved invaluable in setting up Blue Passion Sailing – recognising and providing those special touches that make a sailing holiday on board Blue Passion a truly memorable experience.
Together, they make an excellent team, both sharing the same passion for sailing – living the dream!

All accommodations for the perfect vacation were met and exceeded all expectations. Thank you for all your hard work to make our vacation the best possible with many terrific memories.
Many thanks, Marta. H.
Thank you so much for the delightful week. The combination of sailing, sightseeing, adventures and exquisite dishes will be very hard to beat for my future vacations. I hope to be back soon, and definitely with the same amazing crew.
We arrived as clients and left as family with professional sailing owners we were able to sail at a high performance level. They never stop working to satisfy everyone’s individual needs. I am on the elderly side and Greg and Vanessa enabled me to do things I never thought I could do again. Every meal was prepared by Vanessa a master French chef. Our memories will be with us forever.
The only word to describe this trip is “amazing”. From the food, to the sailing, to the hospitality, everything was done with the most professional and kind thoughts. Blue Passion is and amazing boat, made “Best Monohull Yacht” by the crew. I cannot write enough about the great experience I have had on this trip. Greg and Vanessa, you two are absolutely deserving of every bit of success you two have had together, and I know you will continue to do great things together.You both have more life experience already than most people have in their entire lives, and it shows in the professional way you conduct yourselves. This has been an unforgettable experience.
We had been looking forward to this trip for 6 months. That is a lot of time to build expectation beyond reality. From the first lunch to the last meal, everything was fantastic, who knew there were so many “cell towers” and “north stars”… and “deer” too… Many many memories and great stories… Thank you.
From Lori getting hit by a fish to Riley snorkelling for the first time, we had a fantastic time.
And the food… I can’t say enough. Vanessa and hers assistant Greg, made some amazing meals!
What a great vacation, this is one of the very best vacations we have ever shared as a family. Thanks so much for taking such good care of us. Hopefully doesn’t expect that and will cook for him like you do Vanessa. Thank you for teaching Josh to sail and for and for convince him to go SCUBA. Hopefully our path will cross again in the future!
Best wishes to you both and Thanks for such a great vacation.
Larry, Judi and Josh.
Well would you look at that, a full week of adventures gone before our eyes. From SCUBA diving to bar hopping all of our adventures were amazing. Man I wish I could stay but ya know school and stuff. This place is beautiful and so is the boat. I wish you both the best of luck with all of your adventures.
This was the best vacation ever. I wish I could have Christmas break for another week. I loved the adventures and the food. The next things are here! Thank you for all of that fun!
For our virgin trip sailing in the US/UK virgin islands I don’t think we could have gotten a nicer boat and a nicer crew. This is how every sail in the Caribbean should be like, perfect boat, fantastic food and lots of fun. Thanks to your generosity, friendly smiles and guiding it was truly a dream come true!
We will absolutely come back and while we wish you all the best in the next phase of your life we hope we can join you again on another sail very soon !
Lots of things! Johan.
Great dessert !!- Louise.
We have had the best week with you guys on Blue Passion. It’s been a beautiful experience of sailing in the BVI – Thanks to you. Axel.
We wish you all the best in the future! Ulrika.
Thank you for this amazing experience. Beata."
Sailing on the Blue Passion with Vanessa and Greg exceeded all of our expectations. I truly can say that everyone made some life time memories (including Greg & Vanessa) and there was much laughter. We met them as strangers and became fast friends. Did all things, including catching a 15-20 lb Mahi Mahi, Vanessa prepared it for dinner one evening on the boat. The scooter rides on Anegada were a riot as the other couples had never ridden a scooter, ask Greg to tell you about that one. The accommodations on the boat were great. Vanessa is a gourmet chef. Greg is an accomplished and resourceful sailor. Emma and others will generate guest comments for the Blue Passion.
Dear Greg & Vanessa,
Thank you cannot even begin to express the gratitude that we have for you. We came on board as strangers and we leave as “Family”. The depth of sharing and generosity is a gift we take with us individually and collectively that we will hold forever in our hearts.
May the Lord watch between me and thee – white we are absent one from another. Irish Prayer.
We pray our paths will cross again.

Hello Blue Passion!
You are inhabited by two of the most lovely people I have ever encountered Greg and Vanessa call you home and so did I for an entire week. It is easily one of the most memorable weeks of my life so far. It was an experience that will always warm my spirit. Blue Passion I will miss you and your owners. I have a very special place in my heart for the three of you. When I say three of you I mean Blue Passion, Greg and Vanessa. There is not much I can say other than I love you guys and I hope to see you at some point in the future.
Too much love not enough works to express it!!! Brendan
Dear Greg and Vanessa,
Words cannot begin to adequately express how amazing it’s been to spend a week with the two of you while Blue Passion is an amazing boat, this entire experience wouldn’t have been nearly as memorable without the two of you! From Vanessa’s amazing cooking to Greg’s …… to get us drunk, you two will always be a part of this group! May you continue to spread the tradition of MAFIA and I hope we meet again (maybe in St Martin) Please let me know if you ever find yourselves in the San Francisco Bay area.
All the best! Mario
I feel as though I’ve been manipulated into writing a very nice letter to you after eating one of the most amazing meals of my life! I’m without words to describe how amazing my trip has been, all thanks to you. I’m still a bit suspicious that you were able to prepare all of our breathtaking meals in your galley. Not only have you treated me better than I deserve from beginning to end, but you’ve served as an inspiration with your dedication and passion for your own dreams Thank you so much for sharing your boat and your lives with us over the past week, look forward to boating with you in the future.
Greg and Vanessa,
What an adventure. Thanks for leading me and my band of friends into the most incredible week. You two make magic. We are all so rejuvenated and ready for life. Thanks for being our friends on this journey. We will remember these seven days for our lifetimes. Best of luck for the future.
Stay in touch and let me know if you’re ever in Dominica! Best, Khary.
Dear Greg and Vanessa,
Thanks so much! This was my first time sailing and the experience blew away my expectations. Both of you went above and beyond to make our trip fun and memorable. Vanessa, I was constantly blown away by the magic you were able to create from a tiny, cramped kitchen. Greg, you made sailing such an enjoyable and easy experience for us and always brought fun and positive attitude.
Thanks again, and keep in touch! Ash
Dear Greg and Vanessa,
I am so grateful and impressed by everything you’ve done for us to make this trip memorable. You are both very caring and have great personality to be with. Sorry about letting Greg to be in the immigration in St Lucia, explaining that Taiwan and China are different. But I think that was an exciting interesting moment that also brought us closer. Now, you know, Taiwan and China are different.
Great partner skills, and you know the most important element to succeed in hospitality creating the amazing experience.
Greg and Vanessa,
I had one of the best vacations I’ve ever been on, and it’s due in large part to the incredible experience you two created for us. Thank you for exceeding our expectations time and time again with your focus, attention to detail, and generous attitude. More importantly, thank you for treating us like family you’ve welcomed us into your home and truly feel as if I’m walking away with two new friends J. Take good care of each other and I hope this won’t be the last time our paths cross.
Warm wishes, Andreea.

We had the most amazing vacation! All of us loved it….we spent time in St John, Jost Van Dyke, Tortolla, Peter Island and Norman Island. Lots of snorkeling, sailing, visiting a couple of towns on shore, time for reading and board games and lying in the sun. No cell phones - a plus!
Greg and Vanessa make the trip. Their attention to customer service and client comfort was wonderful. They taught us about sailing and by the end of the trip we all had jobs whenever we were mooring or casting off. The food was plentiful and delicious and we've asked Vanessa to share some of the recipes. They took very good care of us and are fun to be with.
Blue Passion was spacious for the 5 of us. It was nice that it is air conditioned as one or two of the moorings were rather still. The others had delightful breezes. We ate most of our meals on the boat but did have two lunches ashore for a change of pace.
If you have any specific questions, I'd be happy to answer them. For now, we've been raving to everyone about the experience!
Greg & Vanessa,
Thanks for a great trip. Great hospitality and a wonderful ship. I will never forget the “Blue Passion” and of course the wine table cloth. Good luck in the future hope someday I can return… Thanks again…
Greg and Vanessa,
Thank you for the best trip! I had a really good time. Vanessa thank you for teaching me how to swim with sea turtles! Again thank you so much for the trip.
Dear Greg and Vanessa,
Thanks for a wonderful trip to celebrate Don’s Birthday. It was exactly what he wanted to do sail The Grenadines. The food was great and your hospitality was just perfect. I hope to return to Blue Passion again!
Dear Greg and Vanessa,
Thank you for this great trip! I was really happy here. This was a magical trip. Thank you so much.
Dear Greg and Vanessa,
Thanks for the trip of a lifetime for my fiftieth birthday. The sailing and hospitality were excellent you were both very accommodating and attentive to all our needs. We’re looking forward to doing it again someday.
Vanessa & Greg,
Perfect!! Nothing more to say. Had a fabulous time – great locations, great meals + most of all great crew!! Trip of a lifetime – Hope to return someday. Thanks for everything.
NEW YEARS 2012-2013:
"Vanessa and Greg/Captain Greg/Skip,
Have had a great week with YALL and am going to miss the lifestyle a lot. Can’t explain how much we will miss chef Vanessa’s soon to be prize winning meals. We saw a lot of great things this week, even the bottom of the ocean thanks to Captn Greg.
Stay adventurous and enjoy it because we will miss sailing around with yall more than you know. I want to hear future stories of a little baby Greg (named after us, not captn). Best of luck in the future and hopefully there will be a next time!
My best of you Always!!
Thanks so much for all the yummy food!
I will forever say rubbish instead of trash. Had a great time and best of luck to both of you!

“Vanessa and Greg, Thanks to you we will always remember our 20th anniversary – it was a fantastic time with our kids, and romantic too (thanks for movie and crepes night!). We were thrilled that your energy for exploring and activity matched our own, as there was truly never an unwanted (we had all the rest and relaxation we wanted to) .... moment. Delicious food, clear warm waters, tons of underwater adventure and life on a boat – it was fabulous.
Best wishes to you! Mom Anna”
We came in search of marine adventures, and you gave us a wonderful new one every day! From lobsters, to dolphins, rays, the unforgettable swim with turtles, nurse sharks, eels and even snakes; lovely sails, beautiful dives. - The list goes on and on.
Thank you for the delicious meals, the killer cocktails, and all the good laughs. Blue Passion is a spectacular boat, and you are a terrific team. We will hope to see you again soon, and in the meantime, wish you all the best with the coming season. We will definitely be back!
Fondly, A's family.
late March/early April 2011 BVI
Thank you so much for a week full of discovery, great times, divine food and great company. Your baby "Blue Passion" is a beautiful boat and offers every possible convenience and comfort of home. The sailing was great and the memories we have will be always looked upon with fondness. Thanks for being a great crew!!!
We had a great time on blue passion. Vanessa and Greg were great hosts, very mature and concientous. Food was great as was daily routing and all the little small efforts that were made to make our trip special (ie taking photos of us scuba diving, catching fish lunches, etc. Everything was first class. R & C
12-20 March 2011 BVI
I wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we had an amazing vacation with Greg and Vanessa. We love them like family after a week of divine treatment and fabulous camaraderie.
They are the perfect hosts, incredible sailors and made every day an adventure.
We all said it was the most relaxing holiday ever and they made this possible.
Vanessa is a fabulous cook. We are all foodies and she made every meal special and delicious. When it came to allergies, she was on it and made really great alternatives...which of course we all would sample.
The boat was spotless, an absolute dream to be aboard and frankly I was really suprised by the sheer size. We never felt like we were on top of each other. It was a treat to be the best boat in the harbour/anchorage...we were rockstars.
Every day Greg would sit us down and have a plan based on conversations he would have with each of us. We had our list and every day we were checking things off with them and had the best time doing so. It was also a really great way to manage the crowd, we all felt we had a voice but at the same time were surprised with the amazing experiences Greg would create for us.
We will definitely sail with them again.
I spoke with them about an interisland trip through the Caribbean...I think you should reach out to all of your clients and sell this type of adventure. It is unique, off the beaten track and is the type of thing that many people would love to do, especially if they have done the BVI's a few times already.
Another idea I had was that flying via St. Martin would be better then the 12 hour trip each way to the BVI's. It was a pain with ferry's and connections and expensive. Doing a direct flight with a pick up and a 12 hour sail to the BVI's would have been way better. I also think that journey of that size would be really cool for sailors who really want to sail.
Thanks so much for helping to create the best vacation ever...if you ever need a referral, feel free to share this email or have your guests contact me directly.
