Crew Profile

Captain: Michael Symes

COPIHUE's captain is the vastly experienced ocean yachtsman, Michael Symes. Michael has sailed all over the world from the Southern Ocean to the Nordic fjords and across the world's most hostile seas. He has safely guided novice crews round both the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn. An RYA Ocean Yachtmaster Instructor and Examiner, he has now given up the cramped cold bunks of training boats for a more luxurious berth on Copihue.

Michael’s buoyant and cheerful nature leads and inspires his small team and will ensure your time on Copihue is both exhilarating and carefree.

First Mate: Ray Nicholson

Copihue’s first mate is Ray Nicholson who first sailed on square riggers in the Caribbean, and loves the tradition of the Tall Ships. The responsibility for all Copihue's gleaming bright work is down to Ray's impeccable eye and passion for working with wood. Over the last twenty years he has sailed a wide variety of vessels and is a RYA Yachtmaster instructor. Ray shines when conditions turn bad and stoically helms through the worst the weather can throw at him. When the weather is more benevolent he will happily guide you should you wish to take the helm. He is also a PADI certified Rescue Diver, but his main talent is providing a joke for every occasion (warning: some WILL leave you groaning.)

Stewardness & Chef: Alison Hill

Copihue's stewardess is Alison Hill who joined the team in 2011. She caught the sailing bug in 2008 when her first sailing experience turned into a full time passion; Alison left her previous life as a hairdresser in London to embark on a new adventure in the Windward Islands, crunning sailing holidays on board a 74 ft schooner. Alison’s attention to detail keeps the interior of Copihue looking shiny and spotless, and she will provide you with tasty, home style cooking using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Cocktails and appetisers appear at sundown, and there is always an endless supply of chocolate biscuits (unless the captain gets to them first).
