Viking is Norse for ‘Traveller by Sea’, which could not be more apt to describe our passion for sailing and travel. Mark and Sally look forward to welcoming you on board ‘Viking Dream’ for your very own Caribbean sailing adventure.
Throughout our many years together, our passion for sailing, travel, nature and outdoor pursuits have been the hub of our relationship. In 2001 we embarked on an invigorating world tour for 12 months. We travelled extensively through America, Canada, Alaska, Peru, Australia & New Zealand, returning over Asia and Europe. Our yachting experience includes cruising in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, the Caribbean, the Whitsundays, Malaysia and Thailand. Not to mention UK waters and a Transatlantic crossing! On returning from travelling, we decided to turn a leisure activity we love into a lifestyle.
Many of our guests, who return again and again, comment on our love, knowledge, and respect for each other, our environment and for these beautiful Islands. They are also pleasantly surprised to say they arrived on ‘Viking Dream’ to two strangers, but left two good friends. Especially enjoying our humour and love of life, as well as our attention to detail and seamless teamwork. There are many remarks about how they have ‘not felt so relaxed in years’, and have ‘never laughed so much’! Please read our ‘Guest Comments’ page!
Cruising the islands and seeking out that idyllic palm fringed bay, where the sea, the sky and the sand invoke that feeling of total tranquillity, and being at one with nature, is what we love to share with our guests.
If you’d like to learn about sailing we’re both qualified instructors and love to impart our knowledge, but are equally happy to pass you a cushion and bring you an iced drink while we sail the yacht!
We are also very passionate about food and presenting our guests with fine cuisine, wines and cocktails. Sally’s dishes are an exceptional variety of styles, reflecting her extensive travels and experience of different cultures. Mark’s cocktails are legendary, both self styled and classics. We are also known as ‘Captain Cocktail’ and ‘Sally in the Galley’!
