LADY KATLO Crew Profile
LADY KATLO has a crew of three, with captains and hostess alternating every six months. David Richmond is the chef through the summer of 2015.
From October thru March: Captain Matt Wilson and First Mate/Stew Hillary Wilson
From April 1st thru September: Captain Patrick Brink, First Mate/Stew TBA
Chef is Richie West and he is aboard year round.
Captain Matt Wilson:
Matt was born in the quaint sailing town of Annapolis, Maryland. He grew up spending most of his time outside and around the water, which fueled his interest in biology and nature. His adventurous personality took him to Australia where he completed his Bachelors Degree in Marine and Freshwater Sciences at Deakin University. While studying in the land down under, he became an avid diver, surfer and spearfisherman – passions which would eventually draw him to the warm waters of the Caribbean.
Pursuing his diving career led him to complete his Dive Instructor course and move to the British Virgin Islands. He spent time working there as captain and Dive Instructor aboard a 47ft Catamaran. Matt enjoyed exploring the Caribbean islands and met his wife, Hillary, along the way.
He continued to work throughout the islands captaining dive boats, teaching diving, and gaining experience on the water. This prepared him with the knowledge to start working as an engineer on boats in and around St. Maarten and would eventually lead him to meet Lady Katlo’s Captain, Patrick Brink. Patrick was looking for the right person to split the Captain/Engineer role from a year-round position, to 2 six-month positions and Matt was the perfect fit. You will find Matt aboard Lady Katlo October-April and Patrick from April-October. They both look forward to putting together their experience and ideas to make sure your trip is unforgettable anytime of the year.
Hillary Wilson, First Mate and Stewardess
Hillary grew up in Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri, happily spending summers in and on the water on the beautiful lake in her backyard. When the cold winters came, she visited her grandparents on their yacht in the Bahamas and developed a love for the ocean and traveling. She pursued Photography and Environmental Studies at the University of Missouri where she went on to complete her Bachelor’s Degree.
Hillary’s desire to explore and learn new things has given her a range of useful qualifications. After traveling and working in many countries, her love for the sea led her to the Caribbean where she met her husband, Captain Matt, while obtaining her PADI Divemaster. Caring for people comes naturally to Hillary and she has found the perfect fit for her talents traveling around the world and working in the hospitality and diving industries. While living in St. Maarten, Hillary and Matt bought a 1968 sailboat in need of a refit. Hillary’s eagerness to learn more about sailboat mechanics led her on a yearlong restoration project and gave her invaluable hands-on experience. Seeking to combine her passion for sailboats and experience in hospitality, she eagerly joined Matt in becoming part of the LADY KATLO team.
CHEF RICHARD "Richie" WEST:
Richard, grew up in the West Midlands of England where he gained a passion for food working in his families delicatessen from the age of fifteen. He went on to culinary school and since then he has worked thirty years in the catering industry
He was classically French trained then went on to work for Michelin Star winning chef Andreas Antona for seven years, learning and cooking modern British cuisine. After this he moved to renowned country house hotel, the Elms in Abberley, Theme Valley and then to the Cotswold House Hotel. Here he gained a passion for local organic produce while under the guidance of the national chef of the year Steve Love.
Next he moved to London to work for the highly acclaimed chef Marco Pierre White who had just become the youngest chef ever to earn three Michelin Stars. Marco is now considered the godfather of modern cuisine. Richard spent two years under his guidance learning as much as he could. He took these skills the kitchens of many top restaurants and five star hotels in London during the next eighteen years. He has entered many culinary contest in the UK and as come away with many medals and accolades.
Richard has also traveled to South East Asia where he was invited to work at the famous Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Singapore to promote British cuisine. While in South East Asia, he came to love the Asian cuisine and went to Thai cooking school in Chang Mai.
In an effort to explore a new part of the world, he moved to the Caribbean to work at the Last Resort Restaurant in the British Virgin Islands where he met captain Patrick. He has recently been working at the Charter House Restaurant in Sint Maarten looking to move on to one of the many super-yachts in Simpson Bay. When the chef position became available on Lady Katlo, he was the first person Patrick called, and Richard jumped at the chance to move on to the water.
Richie is aboard year round.
From April to October:
Captain Patrick Brink
Master of Yachts, 200 ton
Patrick has sailed all over and across the north and south Atlantic Ocean, from Europe to Africa to South America and from the Caribbean back to Europe. He has captained and vacationed throughout the Caribbean, sailed up and down the eastern US coastline and out to the island of Bermuda. He has skippered an 80-foot sloop in the Mediterranean Sea and most recently arrived in the British Virgin Islands sailing single-handed on his own classic sloop, Selkie.
The BVI is where he met the owners of Lady Katlo and became her full-time captain.
Patrick grew up in southwest Scotland amid rural countryside surrounded by lochs and rolling hills. At the age of 7 he built his first boat to sail on the nearby loch, even then dreaming of a life of adventure. His interest in nature and the outdoors drew him to earn a degree in Zoology at the University of Glasgow in 2005. Shortly thereafter, he discovered the yachting industry, packed his suitcase and headed for the Cote d'Azur to began his professional sailing career. He has since explored many exotic ports of call.
Patrick’s friendly, easy going nature and honed sailing skills enable yacht charter guests to relax immediately and completely. His experience in free diving, underwater photography and surfing as well as his love of exploring make him an enchanting host full of helpful hints and instructions to ensure the best sailing vacation. Guests regularly report that his patience is outstanding when teaching them (or their children) a few sailing skills, fishing, or water sports.

Fantastic! Unforgettable! Amazing – Thank you matt, Hilary & Richie for giving our family and friends the most exciting and flawless spring vacation. Your kindness and “can do” approach to everything was evident from the moment we climbed aboard. You all went above and beyond – Richie’s gluten-free cooking – absolutely the best. Hilary’s cheerful manner – and doing everything for us behind the scenes and also front and center – down to doing Nicholas and Max’s laundry1 Her afternoon cookies & the Rice crispy treats, Matts expertise on the boat in all kinds of ways beyond sailing (which is of course unmatched).
We went to the best snorkeling spots ever. Saw Sea Turtles, bubbly pool, (Necker Island – with champagne toasts), waterskiing, big dinners on the boat and so many more memories to last forever.
We thank you , we applaud you and we sincerely hope to do it again in 2016!

Yacht: S/V Lady Katlo
Date: December 29, 2013-January 5, 2014
Comment on the comfort onboard Lady Katlo: LK was spacious and tastefully decorated—more modern than overdone which was to our taste—so very comfortable. The photos were not misleading.
Comment on the condition of Lady Katlo: LK had just come from being redone in Fl Lauderdale and we were it’s first clients, so it was really like being on a brand new vessel.
Comment on the cleanliness of Lady Katlo: Perfectly spotless—our rooms were cleaned every day, sheets and towels changed mid-week, crew worked throughout to keep the common areas and the boat itself tip-top.
Comment on the congeniality of the Captain and crew: Captain Patrick is a doll and so were the crew. Super friendly.
Comment on the service of the Captain and crew: I thought we had a few ideas for our trip and had emailed them to the Captain earlier. But we soon realized that he had thought out a lovely tour of all the islands trying to make sure we got to see all the best spots the BVI had to offer in our limited time there. His organization was perfect!
Comment on the fun aspect of the Captain and crew: As a family of 5 we looked for “fun” mostly in our water sports, not really bars or restaurants, and The Captain and crew made sure we had access to anything we wanted to try—and we did a bunch of it—so yes, loads of fun.
Comment on the expertise of the Captain and crew: I know nothing about sailing so It is hard for me to judge, but I would have to say the we felt in highly skilled and professional hands. I understand that the captain as well as Emily (I think she might be called the steward?) both had transatlantic crossings under their belts, as well as multiple solo sails on their own boats. Expertise: check!
Comment on the quality of your meals: OMG!! Chef David was AMAZING—we ate so well we never wanted to leave the boat to go ashore, and so we never did! (The2 times we did eat in a restaurant it was nowhere near the caliber of the food on LK) So accommodating too, since the kids like meat and the parents fish, but never felt like an effort to make everyone happy. OK, I admit it, took photos of the food, it was beautiful.
Comment on the presentation of your meals: See above. Oh and the table was beautiful without the food as well.
Would you charter this yacht again? (Circle one) YES NO
YES YES YES
One last thing—
Initially I went along with my husband’s desire to charter a boat—not against it, but thought it would be a one-off, great experience. The quality of the experience from our first conversations with the broker to being helped through customs by the Captain and getting back to St. Thomas was perfect. We are both hooked, and will be looking to
charter again. And again.
Lady Katlo Guest comments
I spent a wonderful week with my parents cruising on Lady Katlo in the southern Grenadines this February (2012). We had a truly wonderful week of sailing and were looked after beautifully by the catain and his crew.
The yacht is luxuriously comfortable and spotlessly clean, the food delicious and the service immaculate. We were thoroughly spoiled in every way possible. The captain found ideal moorings for us every night, peaceful places of great beauty and calm, which was just what we had asked for.
This was our first experience of cruising in these islands and we are already planning our return next year....seven days was certainly not long enough
