Libra 50 Crew Profile
MEET YOUR CREW: Andrew Le Roux and Lindsey Montgomery
From Johannesburg, South Africa, Andrew isn´t your normal city suburbanite. Andrew is sporty and adventurous, hence the reason he came across sailing. He has been sailing since 2012, where he first sailed across the Indian Ocean. From the beginning Andrew was hooked, deciding he would become a Captain one day.
Andrew completed his Yachtmasters in the icy cold, stormy waters of Cape Town while at the same time studying a postgraduate degree in business. Thereafter, he furthered his experience as a first mate for a year in Malaysia and Indonesia. Not long after, Andrew captained his first yacht in Thailand, after which he also chartered an array of sailing yachts in Croatia.
Andrew, a water sports enthusiast, is an experienced diver, spear-fisher, wake-boarder and surfer. Besides being an active soul, Andrew is a jack of all trades and you´ll find his down-to-earth nature magnetic.
Born and raised in Dallas Texas, Lindsey´s love for the culinary world began in her great grandmother´s kitchen.
Her southern roots and love for “farm to table” is exhibited throughout her cuisine. She spent every Sunday browsing the vendors of her hometowns local farmers market. Lindsey´s love of the water comes from spending her youth on her grandparent´s boat in the summertime. She chartered sailboats for four seasons in Croatia before returning home to attend culinary school! Now she´s back on the waters in the Virgin Islands ready to sail and cook delicious meals.
Lindsey & Andrew started working charters in Croatia back in 2019.
Today they bring their complimenting styles to the Virgin Islands. Their experience in hospitality and service are a key attribute to their goal of guest satisfaction and personalization.
Join Lindsey & Andrew aboard Libra where you´ll get to enjoy an array of water activities, delicious cuisine, and captain´s cocktails

Every Detail Was Incredible
Thank you for making this week one of the best for everyone onboard. The natural beauty of the islands and serenity of the boat would have always made for a nice vacation, but the two of you have turned this trip into one we will be talking about for years to come.
Your genuine enjoyment of having us here made us have such a better appreciation of the sea. Every detail on this trip has been incredible from the table settings to delicious meals to knowing all of the best coves on the island - it is hard to imagine what this trip would have looked like without you.
We hope to be here with you again sometime very soon.

I think after this week, we can all say that ´Boat Life Is The Best Life´.
Thank you for everything you did to make this a trip of a lifetime for us and one we will never forget.

I could never get David to the USVI but I think he has been converted and is now a big fan.
So many Memories Were Made!
You both made our family getaway that much more special by becoming our extended family for a week.
Your hospitality, captivating personalities and your positive energy are amazing! Never stop being YOU.
We loved hearing the passion in your stories of South Africa and hope to get there some day to see if ourselves.
Be it the cappuccinos, delicious meals, PAIN KILLERS, games played after dinner or just life on Libra, you made it special for me and my dear family. Many memories were made!
Wow! Words do not do justice to explaining the amazing job you two did this week. I will now forever say my first sailing experience was a 10/10. Both of you have unexplainable, unyielding charisma. I can truly say we are leaving as friends.
The way both of you love your job and love people is so evident. No bad day aboard Libra!
I cant say thank you enough!
What A Week!
What a week! After 3 previous sailing trips, our expectations were VERY high. Chris and Lida FAR exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful trip and consider you both friends!
It was awesome starting mornings with fresh coffee and cappuccino. The food was fresh and amazing.
We were the envy of every other boat thanks to the ´reverse cabungee´ and incredible water sports experiences.
I also appreciated the depth of the conversations and personal connections.
It´s almost as if you could read our minds and anticipate our every desire in advance.
Thank you both for making such a memorable holiday for us.
Truly A Passion For People!
Thank you all so much for the best week EVER! I could not imagine ever sailing with anyone else again. Y´all were so hospitable, patient and joyful. Every expectation was exceeded.
I am excited to leave this trip with two new friends in y´all and cannot wait to see y´all again - there WILL be an ´again´.
Y´all are the hardest workers I have ever met and truly have a passion for people, service and your jobs. Keep on!
Gratitude For You Both
There are no words to describe the amount of gratitude I have for both of you. You made us feel like family from the moment we boarded the boat. There was no request that was ever any trouble for you. Your knowledge and work ethic are not common in our previous trips.
Thank you for making this one of the most memorable holidays to date. We cannot wait to see you two again.
Experience to Refuel Our Spirits
Thanks for a great week!
A wonderful experience to refuel our spirits with nature and our connection with our family.

We will truly miss the both of you the most from this trip. We will also miss our morning cappucchino´s and endless cocktails.
It was a ´pleasure´ meeting you guys.
I Could Not Be More Satisfied
My experience was nothing short of outstanding. The crew is top notch as is the yacht. I could not be more satisfied.
Indeed, we had a wonderful time with your very professional crew, Chris and Lida. Chris, is at the top of his game and most certainly the best skipper that I have had the pleasure of meeting.
Feel Like Family
We relaxed and were taken care of to perfection. Our team and boat were fantastic! Chris and Lida made us feel like family.
Thank you for providing everything we could possibly desire: fun, adventure, great food, sublime cocktails, family time and your companionship. Though our time was short, we look forward to living with you on the Libra and sailing many oceans.
We loved Every Moment
Thank you for taking such great care of us. Whether it be making great cocktails, preparing delicious meals or attempting to throw us off the tube, we loved every moment - this has been an awesome adventure! P.S Get ready to ski in Tahoe!
