Captain Kyle Glowacky

Your skipper, Captain Kyle, has lived near the sea his entire life. Growing up a New Englander, Kyle began working in the waters off the coast of New Hampshire in lobster boats, eventually finding his way into sailing tall ships. After attending Emerson College and graduating with a B.F.A., he soon realized it´s hard to make money as an artist. He then returned to the water and has been sailing professionally ever since. Captain Kyle knows these waters like the back of his hand having spent seven years chartering the U.S. and the British Virgin Islands. Now back after a two-year hiatus working as a licensed officer aboard National Geographic expedition ships from Alaska to Baja California Sur, he longed to return to his roots sailing on a more intimate and personal scale. He strives to deliver a safe trip while ensuring his guests have the most fun and memorable time of their lives.

Chef Jehanne Bavay

With three seasons in the Virgin Islands, working as a chef/first mate on multi-sailing yachts and ten years of experience in the hospitality industry, I have deep passion for providing world-class customer service and dining experience for my guests. I am driving to provide the highest degree of hospitality by ensuring guests experiences meet and exceed expectations. The yachting industry has provided the perfect outlet for my energetic personality. I gain deep satisfaction from the continual transformation of my skill set and abilities as well as my life at sea, which I deeply love.

Ad Astra Guest Reviews

Best Vacation We´ve Ever Had!

It was the best vacation we’ve ever had! And that comes from me and my wife, all three of my kids, and all of our guests. The boat was great, but Julie and Brad really made the trip special. Thanks so much for helping us organize it. A+ job! Captain Brad did an amazing job putting together the perfect itinerary. Considering all of the restrictions due to COVID, he deserves special appreciation. We didn’t miss a beat.The one thing that all of the guests have been raving about was the food. The meals were perfectly customized, impeccably presented, and incredibly enjoyable! It truly was the perfect vacation. The captain and crew could make or break a yacht charter. Brad and Julie made the trip so much better than we ever could have expected! The food was amazing, Brad was incredibly knowledgeable about sailing, and their energy was infectious! They were non-stop entertainment for the kids. It was unanimous among the guests – this was the best vacation any of us have ever had!

Unbelievable Vacation!

Dear Brad and Julie,
Just a quick note to thank you guys again for an unbelievable vacation for Kevin and I, our family and friends. The memories that were created this week will stay with us forever -mostly due to your hard work spoiling all of us with food, drink, water sports, a beautiful boat to relax on and good company. And a huge thank you for all of your attentiveness and flexibility with different food preferences....and for tolerating Joe’s incessant (but funny) sarcasm...and for hanging out with all the kids. We just now landed in Boston, but have been talking about what a great trip it was all day!

Best of luck to you guys wherever Ad Astra takes you next!


Thanks guys!


-Jen
