Robyn – Deck Stew

Growing up on the sunny beaches of Cape Town, Robyn's love for the ocean started at young age, however sailing was something she wasn't introduced to sailing until a lot later in life when living in the UK. Whilst working for a yacht design company just a stone’s throw from where she lives in the New Forest, Robyn was swept up in the world of super yachts and very quickly became intrigued by a life style she knew she'd love - traveling,sailing and working with people. After landing a role as a deckhand/stew she learned the ropes very quickly and went on to work in both the modern &classic sailing yacht world before taking a break & moving to Central America to follow another passion, surfing. Returning to yachts, for an itch that couldn't be scratched whilst living in one spot, she is eager to keep exploring and learning. With a love of scuba, water sports, learning Spanish& yoga, Robyn hopes to combine it all to keep living her incredible adventure.

Guest Comment July 2016 (Hawaii) :

What superlatives can we use to describe our wonderful experiences on the Kawil Hawaiian adventure? A beautiful,pristine sailing vessel with every comfort one can ask for and a very special crew to make the cruise a most memorable time! There was simply nothing lackingand you and the rest of the crew made us feel like family. You were so gracious in caring for us on the boat and on our shore excursions! Everything ran as smoothly as silk! Believe that we miss you guys and the boat very much and wish we were with you now! Have a great Alaskan experience and tell the rest of the crew that we appreciate all of you and the very special care we received.

This was the first time Powell and I have experienced a private sailboat and I am quite sure we will find it very difficult to EVER topthe boat or the crew.  I am still talking to friends and family about our experience, of course, without sounding like we are bragging (very hard to do).

I have never been so spoiled to such a 5 star level. I kept joking with the crew that I will need a 6 star to evaluate this crew.  Since the moment our feet hit the deck of the boat, we were treated like royalty. Every detail was considered and implemented.  Within one day, they new our likes and dislikes and our personalities.  Love it.  

Guest Comment August 2016 (Alaska)

"Brilliant"is the one word that comes to mind when I describe our ten days sailing with Captain Foxwell aboard the SY Kawil.  The Kawil is a super-comfortable voyager of the seas that is run like the best boutique hotel imaginable. High point is when its huge sails are unfurled and the Kawil runs like a near-silent cloud, in our case, from Juneau to Vancouver.   Loads of room in a world of polished teak, two staterooms with a Master suite, as well as plenty of space for varied simultaneous activities and different groups of people who may wish to chat,  study maps in the Library or comfortably dine inside or out on the deck.  We had an unforgettable experience with Foxwell and his team--motoring all night when need be-- gently rolling among icebergs and whales. Highest recommendation.

Guest Comment August 2016 (Alaska)

I had the adventure of a lifetime on Kawil for 11 days, sailing the Inside Passage from Juneau, AK to Vancouver, BC. Every aspect of our trip was world class. The Captain had a support team that pampered us at every turn,and they did it cheerfully! Their presence was always a pleasure; I would say without hesitation that the service provided was the best I have experienced anywhere in the world...outstanding! 

 The Captain ran the ship with great skill and provided us logistic support to facilitate meals offshore, etc. The food and drink provided were excellent. The design of Kawil provided a comfortable, easy living environment with all the luxury you would expect from a world class sailing yacht. 

I have adventured the world and my experience on Kawil was the grandest of all! '
