Crew: Brian / Chef Alex

Brian began his passion for life on the water growing up in sunny California. He spent his childhood summers on lakes learning all about power boats from his father and as a teenager was exposed to sailing and he then knew that sailing would be his lifelong vice.

After graduating from Chico State University with a major in Hospitality and Special Events, Brian moved to San Diego to be closer to the water to allow him to continue sailing on the weekends. He soon realized that two days a week on the water was not enough so   Brian quit his job to finally pursue the sailing career he really wanted.

Brian has extensive experience chartering on power and sailing yachts ranging from 30-50ft in the Caribbean, Aegean, Adriatic, Irish, and Atlantic Sea. Aside from learning the ropes of sailing with Brian, guests of all ages can look forward to a swimming or wakeboard lesson or two from the legendary instructor himself as well as snorkeling, fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking while on the charter.

Alex was born in Toronto and raised in Philadelphia, Alex learned the ins and outs of sailing from her father and grandfather on the North East Coast and on the Great Lakes. Cooking was always a family past time, but after graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in Anthropology in 2015, Alex moved to Italy to learn more about the Italian culture, but most importantly, the food. After working in restaurants in Florence, Alex knew that she could never move to a corporate career and began to search for the perfect combination of cooking and adventure.

Raised in a sailing family, Alex has seen the good, bad and ugly of sailing and chartering but still fell in love with the lifestyle. She began working charters as a yacht hostess in the Adriatic Sea in 2016. Three years later, and fast forward three years, Alex is a globally experienced chef having worked aboard sailing yachts cooking and hosting all over the world from the East Indies to the Caribbean, with no end in sight and no plan to slow down.

A week or a few days on board Au Soleil with Brain and Alex will no doubt be your best vacation ever!

Guest Testimonials Catamaran Au Soleil

From Steve and Dana M On Au Soleil

Exploring the US and BVIs on Au Soleil with Brian and Alex was truly fantastic.  The boat is immaculate and comfortable with abundant areas for sun and shade.  The crew is vigilant about ensuring all is running smoothly.

Skipper Brian is a sun catcher able to navigate away from rain showers for that day’s water activities.  Choppy surf round the Baths?  Brian, the lifeguard, will paddle board you in while giving tips to the snorkelers at the same time.  He can herd goats away from the roads of Anegada, and keep a close eye to ensure you are drinking your bottle water to offset rounds of painkillers during the afternoon at Soggy Dollar with the Swedes.

Alex, thank you for the adorable and delicious birthday cake.  We especially miss your breakfasts and appetizer platters.  We enjoyed hearing about your travels while sailing from island to island.  You and Brian’s restaurant choices at St. John, Cooper Island and Anegada (with ribs for non-lobster eaters) were spot on.

This crew is caring, loads of fun, and will keep you safe.

Wonderful Charter On The Au Soleil

Hi Derek and Brenda,

Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you we had a wonderful charter on the Au Soleil with Brian and Alex last week. You got what we were seeking and matched us to the right boat and crew after the Kailani was booked.  Suggesting we extend the sail from 5 to 7 days was the right call as Anegada was my favorite stop.

We had the usual – Will there be enough to do?  Can you really spend time a week on a small boat? The crew’s expertise and lack of hassle from airport transfers to clearing customs to water knowledge and spot on dinner reservations made for a memorable trip.  I did post a review for the boat and great crew.

Thanks again.  We will be plotting future charters and talking you up.

Regards,

~Dana
