FUERTE Crew Profile
William (age 38) and Julia (Jubee age 37) are an experienced charter crew who have been working together in the marine industry for the past 13 years. When in the UK they live in Bembridge on the Isle of Wight where they married in May 2005 and where both grew up learning to sail dinghies. They have worked aboard Crewed Charter Yachts for the last 10 years and prior to this they worked for Sunsail in the Mediterannean where William taught budding sailors to safely handle a yacht whilst Jubee would be found managing Sunsail’s Galini Kids Club. As a result they love to have children aboard and always enjoy the challenge of harnessing the children’s interest and boundless energy
William and Jubee love all water-based activities. William holds a degree in Marine Biology and Oceanography, and as a trained PADI Scuba instructor, knows the best rendezvous dive spots. Both are avid snorkellers, and where marine life is abundant you will find William taking photos of your snorkelling adventures that will go home with you to add to your memories of a wonderful trip. During his career, William has accrued plenty of instructional experience and is well equipped to develop your sailing and water sports skills if you are interested in doing so. In addition, William and Jubee enjoy hiking, and are both good kite surfers, which they enjoy immensely during time off.
Jubee is an extremely versatile chef who will pay special attention to your preferences to offer you a mouth-watering personalised menu. She hopes that the photographic sample menu that she has created leaves little doubt as to the level of food you can expect whilst aboard Fuerte. In addition to these culinary skills, Jubee has Sailed through out her life and is a very accomplished helm. Prior to life on the sea Jubee qualified with a degree in Jewellery design and Manufacture and ran her own jewellery workshop. This artistic skill is now channelled through her delicious food.
Whether you wish to relax on your holiday or have a non-stop fun filled time, William and Jubee look forward to welcoming you onboard Fuerte so that they can share the amazing environment that they love and are privileged to live and work in.
William and Jubee have now been aboard "Fuerte" for 5 1/2 years and have sailed her in excess of 50,000 miles throughout the Pacific, Caribbean and Mediterranean.
