J. LE GOELAND Crew Profile
Christian and Sylvie were both born in the South of France, close to the Mediteranean Sea. The ocean and boats have been part of their lives since they were children. Their parents have always had boats and they've spent most of their childhood sailing with family in the Mediteranean.
It's the same for Cyril,their 11 year old son. He was still a baby when he spent his first holiday on their fammily yacht.
In France, Christian owned a CitroŽn mechanical company and Sylvie was a teacher at the local University. Both are used to interacting with many people. In his free time, Christian likes to sail, dive and fish. Sylvie likes to sail, cook and dance. She also has spent a lot of free time studying energetic therapies.
In 2007, they decided to travel the world, for several years, sailing on a catamaran. They wanted to experience a new way of life: taking time for family life, discovering different countries, meeting new people, enjoying nature, teaching their son, practicing hobbies...
They bought "J.LE GOELAND" at the end of 2007, prepared it for a world sailing tour and left the South of France in September 2008. The dream was on!
Since then they have sailed from CAP d'Agde in South of France to Balearics islands, Spain, Morocco, Gibraltar, Madeira Island, Canary Islands, Cape Verde Islands, and crossed the Atlantic to Martinique in 12 days. They plan to spend the Winter Season in the Caribbean and then visit Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexican Gulf, Belize and Costa Rica before crossing Panama to go to the Pacific.
One of the main goals of their world tour is to stop for a while in SRI-LANKA. They have been there many times since they are active in the Sri-Lankan "MAHA KARUNA", and want to return again. Sylvie has developed, in the last fifteen years,a sensibility to energetic therapies and Ayurveda.
Christian is a dynamic and friendly captain. His favorite activities are diving (with or without scuba) and fishing. He spends so much time in the water...he's like a fish! He likes discovering new places to dive and showing guests the best underwater adventures. He's also the "King" of fish barbecues. His other specialty is lobsters with aÔoli.
Sylvie, the hostess and chef, is very attentive to the guest's needs and their comfort on board. Sylvie has a quiet nature with a wonderful smile. Sylvie's main aquatic activities are swimming and snorkeling, along with some water skiing. She reads a lot and practices energetic therapies and yoga, and enjoys sharing that with anyone that is interested. Sylvie speaks French and English and also a little Spanish. Sylvie cooks mainly French or Caribbean, with some Spanish occasionally from her Spanish roots.
Cyril is a quiet eleven year old boy;he reads a lot and is very interested in chemistry, science and physics.
He's respectful with the guests and enjoys learning new languages by speaking with the guests. He really likes walking in wild nature trails, and spending time in the sea. When chartering, Cyril enjoys acting as a guide on his favorite islands - especially Tobago Cays where he loves to show the guests the iguanas in the trees!
