Captain Thomas Hemsley
Tommy has worked on motor and sail yachts professionally since 2010. He previously owned his own speed boat in England and realised that this was something he would love to do as a career as well as a hobby.
Before Tommy came out to the Caribbean in 2015, he ran flotillas in Greece for Sunsail, where he was responsible for 12 boats for up to two weeks at a time, sailing around the beautiful Greek islands. After his time in Greece, he worked as an RYA Yacht Master Instructor in Southampton, England, in the sailing capital of the world, teaching sail and motor courses and exam preparation. He has also done many yacht deliveries all around Europe.
Since moving to the warmer climate of the Caribbean, Tommy has built up a wealth knowledge of all the best anchorages to visit and he is a great guide for all the interesting facts and history about the islands. Tommy loves water sports and with so many toys to choose from on Blue Horizon, there is something for everyone.
It´s 5 o clock somewhere and Tommy can mix up delicious and refreshing cocktails.

Chef and First Mate Emma Clark
Emma has always loved being in and around water from a very young age. She grew up sailing in England on her dad’s 18ft sail boat. She sailed all around the Southwest Coast of England.
Her career started in the hospitality industry, when she worked in bars and restaurants as a server and sous chef during her vacations, between studying for her Masters Degree in Education and Art. She then took a gap year, where she worked as a chalet hostess in the French Alps, managing accomodation in a luxury ski resort and catering for up to ten guests. This was a valuable experience for the role she has today. It is clear from the food she produces that she possesses a real passion for cooking. Emma has combined her artistic skills and her professional training at the world renowned Ashburton Cookery School, to produce both beautiful and delicious cuisine.
Emma has been working in the charter industry for over four years, cooking for up to eight guests and producing menus that excite everyone´s palate.
When she is out of the galley she enjoys teaching scuba diving, taking guests snorkeling and sharing her knowledge of the marine life and the local area.

“We don’t know where to start? What an amazing adventure with two incredible people!”
John and Nan and friends / Pennsylvania

We don’t know where to start? What an amazing adventure with two incredible people! Emma’s culinary skills and presentation rivals some of the best restaurants in the world! Every meal breakfast, lunch and dinner was prepared to perfection!! Some of us had restricted diets and Emma was able to prepare us all the similar meals and accommodate everyone with such ease!!! Each meals presentation was a master piece, not only in looks but taste as well!!
Overall we couldn’t have asked for anything more, it was truly amazing!!! We highly recommend chartering the Gypsy Princess with Captain Tommy and First mate Emma!!! We will definitely return, looking forward to our next trip to the BVI’s!!! Best Wishes and Many Regards,
John & Nan

The boat was fantastic, we especially enjoyed the benefits of the flybridge as it was a very pleasant place to sit while sailing or moored in the evening. Tommy and Emma were terrific. They were great hosts and their recommendations on places to go and things to do were extremely helpful to us. They made the trip entertaining and fun for our kids and yet were professional and confidence inspiring throughout the week. The food and hospitality were first rate. They clearly take great pride in the boat and what they do. It all made for a fantastic family vacation for us.

This was our first experience and don’t need to look further, when we go back it will be with Tommy and Emma! They make a great team! They made, an already wonderful holiday, a FANTASTIC one! Tommy and Emma fit right in with our family, Tommy’s knowledge of sailing made the trips fun and secure, he answered all of our questions on all aspects of sailing. His dry humor made us laugh more than once. He’s a perfect captain and has amazing bartending skills! He made us great cocktails and always made a special one for our ten year old. Emma’s cooking was incredible, she does magic in that little kitchen! Five Stars to Emma!! Always surprising us with great meals, appetizers and desserts!!! Emma’s a true gem, she has a positive and funny personality. She is a real joy to be around. She even took time to snorkel with me despite being very busy.

Thank you, Tommy and Emma for this wonderful time, it was sad leaving you guys and we will miss you. We hope you have many great charters this year and that you stay safe.

Until we see you again….Ce n’est qu’un au devoir….

Tommy is an excellent skipper, in calm control of the boat, we felt very confident in his care. He absolutely knows the waters and all the best spots to anchor. He was always polite and seemingly unflappable. He went to extra effort to get the children interested in the workings of the boat. He was also always very attentive to our needs, offering drinks and activities all the time.
Emma, similarly is a super hostess. She equally handled all boat activities in a calm and efficient manner. With the children she was amazing, creating all sorts of activities for them and visiting lots of lovely spots that she knew they would really like.

All the food she prepared was an excellent standard and we were especially grateful that she was happy to cook a separate meal for the children early each evening.

We enjoyed Mimosas on our morning sail, a lovely lunch and romantic evening meal. After dinner they had set out blankets and cushions on deck for us to star gaze with a bottle of champagne.

They really went above and beyond.

Our charter on Gypsy Princess was really really a great experience. We had some great family time. Tommy and Emma fit right in with our family and had some great laughs with us but yet continued their duties daily and showed wonderful professionalism. I look back at pictures and cant believe we were there.

Tommy was a knowledgeable captain and we felt comfortable asking all aspects about sailing and the islands. He told great stories about sailors and boats from the past. That was fun to picture ships from years ago and the people on them. I love history and learning about what happened where years ago. Tommy and Emma keep the boat really clean.

Emma-what a cook. We were blown away with her cooking skills and what she would come up with. We loved everything she cooked. From the breakfast to apps to dinners to DESSERTS! It´s amazing what she does in that little kitchen. The last day we had fun trying to remember what she came up with each day. My girls are going to try to make one of her desserts. My daughter-had never had ahi tuna. She´s 24 and I decided she´s gonna have to like it at least try it.. and she did! The other night she said the best meal was Tuna night! Super!

I know if we do this again - we will definitely want to see Tommy and Emma. We really miss them. We will keep in contact with them. It was neat that they are British. We had fun with their accents, of course we spoke the accent a lot! But it was fun that some things they talked about we had to say “what?’´” Now here around the house - we are still saying things like them.

I hope the best for them and hope they stay safe and have many charters this year! It was sad leaving them.

Thanks for everything! Sign me up for the newsletter!
