Meet the Altesse Catamaran crew:  Sarah and Richard Bowman

Altesse CrewSarah and Richard are highly experienced, award winning charter crew who have completed more than 100 charters in the BVI and been presented with an award for Crew of the Year in 2012. Even more important than that their clients love them and want to keep sailing with this professional, enthusiastic and dedicated couple.

Richard is an accomplished yacht captain, sailor and divemaster. He has sailed extensively in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, but has developed an in-depth knowledge of the BVI, allowing him to adapt the charter to suit the guests on board and show them less frequented coves and bays as well as the hitting the top BVI spots at the best time of day. He has led more than 200 dives in the BVI and knows a large number of dive sites suitable for all levels of diver. Richard also competed internationally as a life guard, so always ensures everyone enjoys the water with the knowledge there is someone on hand to help if they feel ‘out of their depth’. Richard loves sharing his passion for sailing, diving, nature and the water with guests, ensuring they get the very most out of their trip.

Sarah is the epitome of the perfect First Mate and Chef. She has professional culinary training, but it is her passion and love of food that makes her the amazing chef that she is. She loves nothing more than to cook food which people adore and is happiest when she is adapting her menu to suit the tastes of those on board. Like Richard, she is fantastic with people and makes everyone feel comfortable and at home. Her biggest motivation is finding the extra personal touches that turn a great vacation into an unforgettable experience. She is extremely energetic and enthusiastic, and loves the outdoors. Sarah is always up for an adventure, whether it's sailing, running with guests, hiking, diving or snorkeling. She is extremely neat and tidy, but as a qualified boat captain she also knows how to sail a boat and get her hands dirty when needed.

Sarah and Richard have been married for 12 years and work together perfectly as a team. This outgoing and friendly English couple create a unique environment on board; making others feel welcomed and part of their team. Their top notch professionalism shows from raising the first sail to catering to every individual need of those around them. They both take great pride in their work, and it shines through.
