Catamaran Winter’s Coming Crew: Sergio / Chef Melissa
Sergio is a young crew for Catamaran Winter’s Coming, fun and adventurous sailor. He grew up in South America in a mountainous region but vacationed at the coast every summer. It was during these summer trips that he fell in love with the sea and made a promise to himself that someday he would live beside the ocean.
After graduating high school and keeping up with his promise to himself, he relocated to Puerto Rico to attend university, where he completed a degree in marketing, and pursue sailing. His passion for sailing grew extensively which led to the purchase of his own sailboat and many hours of sailing in his spare time. 2 years ago, Sergio decided that sailing was what really ‘fueled his soul’ and decided to make a career change to sailing full time.
Since then he has delivered outstanding charter vacations in Greece, Croatia, Florida and the Caribbean. Sergio speaks fluent English and Spanish, enjoys water sports, can teach Salsa dancing and loves a good conversation while enjoying his most precious creation, mojitos!!
He is a licensed RYA Yachtmaster, offshore commercially endorsed and USCG captain. Guests can be sure that Sergio will provide the most memorable vacation, making sure they are always safe and discover the most amazing sailing spots.
Melissa was born and raised in Phoenix Arizona. Her passion for traveling started at a young age through multiple family vacations to many interesting destinations and after 20+ years of traveling around the world her passion for discovering new places and meeting new people hasn’t slowed down!
After graduating from University in Arizona, Melissa began a successful career in sales. In her free time, she enjoyed cooking, a passion that is in constant evolution every time she travels around the world and discovers new ingredients and plates.
Summers spent on the east coast of the US developed her love for the ocean but her passion for sailing was only realized on a trip to the Caribbean a few years ago. Two years ago, she made a career switch from sales and turned her focus to her love for cooking and more travel.
Since then she has run charters throughout the Mediterranean where she and Sergio met on one such charter. Sergio and Melissa have worked together in Greece, Croatia, and the Caribbean. After living abroad for so long she tries to incorporate international dishes and fresh ingredients in all her meals. They are a terrific team delivering fun, adventurous and customer-centric charters with an international flare ensuring their guests have a vacation of a lifetime.

My family stayed on the Karizma with Hylton and Amy and had the best experience ever. Amy is an amazing cook. Every meal was completely different and full of unique flavors all made in the kitchen of our catamaran. She put her heart into every meal, and still managed to personalize each dish for people with allergies so they wouldn't miss out. Hylton was a fenomenal captain full of very interesting stories about the journeys he's been on. He was very in control and made us feel comfortable and safe the whole trip. Both crew members made the experience so much better with their awesome personalities and love for the ocean. Leaving them at the end of our trip was one of the hardest things we had to do. We love ya'll and hope to sail with you again in the future.
