Captain Lynn Griffiths - English - Owner Operators

Lynn was born in Cheshire in West Central England but spent all her free time by the sea in a small coastal town in North Wales. From as early as she can remember she was on the water in some boat or another. Aged 14 she acquired her first 16ft speedboat which was in need of some TLC. Lynn removed all the yellow paint taking the hull back to bare Aluminium and restored it in beautiful Flag Blue. Her father had a successful construction company and as a schoolgirl Lynn kept the books for the family business. This led to a degree in accountancy following which she started a professional career as a Chartered Accountant. Lynn has worked in senior finance positions for some of the World´s biggest Insurer´s, such as Euler International, Endurance Worldwide & Groupama. Based in the City of London she travelled all over Europe and specialised in setting up from scratch new Insurance Companies. After work she loved her TVR sports car and golf. She was also a qualified aerobics instructor and in the evenings after work she taught aerobics for 12 years. For her vacations Lynn loved to travel to the Far East, Middle East, and golf courses all over Florida; always taking to the water wherever possible.

Her busy career took her away from her first love of sailing but since 2001 she´s been back on the water qualifying with an ´MCA Master 200 tons´ licence and an ´RYA Commercially Endorsed Yacht Master´ ticket for sailing vessels and has been sailing full time for many years most of the time as Skipper of medium to large yachts. She owned her first yacht in the UK for four years (a lightweight Scandinavian built racer called Temptress) and cruised and raced her extensively up and down the south coast of the UK. She´s raced seriously at regatta´s such as Cowes Week, Cork Week, Antigua Race Week & St Maarten Heineken Regatta. She´s sailed on a 100ft Wally up and down the Caribbean and a large Oyster from Ireland across the Mediterranean to Croatia. Lynn was a Rear Commodore of the Little Ship Club, the oldest sailing club in the City of London. Along with social activities and club cruises she also organised popular weekend racing. She started a winter racing series that encouraged members back onto the water and re-vitalised the club.

Lynn has intimate knowledge gained from years of experience of both Caribbean and Mediterranean sailing which includes both island cruising and full on racing. Lynn and Mark met at Antigua Race Week in 2004 and have been sailing ever since. Since purchasing Pacific Wave in June 2008 she has been sailing with Mark full time, travelling up and down the Caribbean every year from Puerto Rico to Trinidad.

Lynn is a keen diver and underwater photographer and is a qualified PADI Divemaster.

When not sailing or diving she is a keen golfer and accomplished horsewoman. She has an uncanny ability to find the best anchorages close to the best golf courses and the best stable yards.

Chef: Mark Miles English

Marks home county of Dorset in South West England was a good place to grow up and become involved in both sea and farming and, after his partner Lynn, its not surprising that his main passions are sailing and food. Mark´s adventures started early, aged 18 he did his first big sailing trip - 1,300 miles in an old C&N sloop from Lymington on the south coast UK to La Coruna in northern Spain and back. Also at the age of 18, and travelling alone, he walked 5,000 miles from Cape Town South Africa to Cairo Egypt. It took seven months, cost $300, and included being arrested for spying in Uganda. After this and some time running around in the British Army it was a welcome rest to go to college aged 24 and study Agriculture. While there he found enough spare time to become elected President of the Students Union - campaigning tirelessly for cheaper beer. After college he was a shepherd for large flocks of sheep in southern England and then he farmed in south west Portugal, growing vegetables and raising sheep. He was a Royal Bath & West of England scholar, travelling to Australia and New Zealand to study problems with drug resistance in sheep flocks. After 6 years in Portugal he returned first to the Isle of Wight and then Cambridge UK, but travelled all over the world to buy produce and then sell it to UK supermarkets. He spent his free time dinghy sailing and racing at Grafham Water and on the Suffolk coast - and flying. Mark has been an aeroplane pilot for over 20 years and he likes to bring the discipline of flying to his everyday job as a professional sailor. In 2003 Mark returned to the Isle of Wight and went sailing full time but kept his toe in the agricultural water with sweet corn in Hereford and Christmas turkeys in Marlow. He now holds an ´MCA Master 200 tons Unlimited Area´ licence and ´RYA commercially endorsed Ocean Master´ tickets, both for sailing and power vessels.

Mark learned to dive age 13 in Malta and then with the British Sub Aqua Club. He dived wherever in the world his work happened to take him and he is a PADI Divemaster.

He speaks good Portuguese and gets along well in Spanish and French. Mark´s previous career in agriculture brought him close to food preparation as well as food production and he has worked on road shows with some of the most renowned celebrity Chefs of today. His style is tinged with global influences but mix Southern Mediterranean light cooking with classic cuisine and an intimate knowledge of quality fresh local ingredients.

Pacific Wave won 2nd place as Best Monohull at The Tortola Charter Yacht Show & Chef Mark Miles took 1st place in the Chef Competition at The St. Thomas Charter Yacht Show. Mark also took 2nd place at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show Concourse du Chef. Mark has worked on road shows with some of the most renowned celebrity chefs.

Pacific Wave Guest Reviews

New Years guests aboard the 72 ft sloop PACIFIC WAVE wrote:

Dear Lynn and Mark,
Thank you for an absolutely wonderful week aboard Pacific Wave. Carole, Gordon, Owen, Benny, James and I enjoyed ourselves immensely! Your warm hospitality and excellent cooking together with your superb choice of anchorages made this the best family vacation we have ever had.
Pacific Wave is a beautiful vessel. The care and love you have for her and each other are very special. We didn’t feel like we were on a charter; rather we felt like we were sailing with old friends. I have been taking notes all week on how to run a successful charter so I can run off and chase my own dreams, however I doubt that I would ever be able to do it as well as you both do!
The highlights of our trip:
- mooring between the Pitons
- perfect sail to and from Bequia
- deep sea sport fishing ( :) smile! )
- turtles, turtles, turtles!
- New Years Eve in Bequia
- the secluded crescent beach at Chatham Bay
- and of course the 5 star 3 course meals every night!
I would love to come back to Pacific Wave again and perhaps learn a bit more about the chartering business if you will let me! We all had a truly fantastic holiday. Sincerely thank you for everything,
Much love,
Dave, Carole, Gordon, Ben, James, Owen.

From the minute we stepped aboard the stunning Pacific Wave we knew that we were in safe hands. As non-sailors we felt perfectly safe and relaxed for the whole holiday.

“The perfect honeymoon!
The Pacific Wave is a beautiful and majestic vessel! We thoroughly enjoyed sailing on her around the magical BVI….
Lynn and Mark were the perfect hosts: they could not have done anything more to make us feel more special and make our stay any more enjoyable. From showing us around idyllic islands and underwater shipwrecks, to letting us take the helm and then sampling Mark’s culinary masterpieces… we loved every moment onboard the Pacific Wave and have made memorable, unforgettable memories!
Thank you for making our dreams come true! We hope to see you again soon, maybe sailing in the beautiful Grenadines!”

“Leaving Pacific Wave today is like leaving our family. Lynn and Mark made us feel special. We enjoyed every single wave of sailing. Our hearts were broken over the devastation to the beautiful Virgin Islands, but our favourite spot was Virgin Gorda. The Caves and the Baths were thrilling. Hiking to Gorda Peak was breath taking. For sailing, we felt safe and happy, Lynn making sure we had one hand for the ship and one hand on the rail. Mark showed us how to tie nautical knots and Tony was the unofficial first mate. The food was delicious and the sailing was, as Tony put it, ‘exhilarating’. Katie spent most of her time basking in the sun. She was ‘sun kissed’. Thank you for being you and for your beautiful vessel Pacific Wave! Thank you!!”

“Dear Lynn and Mark,

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe this holiday. We loved every day of this Grenadines experience, after previously exploring the BVIs with Lynn and Mark on two occasions. Snorkelling with the turtles and starfish on the Tobago Cays, in crystal clear turquoise water was the highlight of our trip. Creative dinners on the beautiful Pacific Wave and lovely local restaurants topped off a wonderful week. The extra touches provided by Lynn were so appreciated. What a great team! We love you guys!”

Andrew & Annette – London UK

18 - 25 March 2018 - USVI/BVI Family of Four

“Where to start?

The boat is beautiful. We knew we had picked the right one when people on other yachts came by just to photograph us.

The BVI lived up to the hype. We particularly liked the quieter anchorages on Norman and JVD, and the kids loved the secret beach you took us to on Virgin Gorda. The color of the water blew us away and we now have two enthusiastic young divers. Other vacation destinations just won’t compare – or have so many fish!

The cuisine was just the right mix for our active family – clean, fresh, healthy and delicious. The kids ate fish and loved it – they never eat fish! And l know I’ll ever be able to even poach eggs to the standard they’ve now become used to. Lunches were light but filling, and dinners well presented and tasty without being unnecessarily fancy. Good job chef!

The crew obviously know the area and where to go. We’ve done the BVI a lot but Lynn and Mark showed us a side we hadn’t seen before – picture postcard anchorages with just the pelicans for company. It was exactly what we had been hoping for.

Thanks guys for a great week onboard the awesome Pacific Wave. We’ll be back!”

Wow what a fun action packed week the kids loved it, thank you! Vacations will never be the same again now that we’ve sailed on the stunning SY Pacific Wave with you guys. The kids loved every minute of the trip from the great food, awesome sailing and turtles! Hope to join you again soon.´

“Dear Lynn & Mark

Thank you so much for making our honeymoon a special treat that we will remember forever. I was a little nervous of the sailing, as l haven’t done as much as my husband, but you guys were awesome. I learnt so much and we both had a fantastic time. I even took the wheel and loved it! Such a feeling of power ☺

The BVI was beautiful, even though things looked a little mashed up in places. We enjoyed snorkelling and your expert guidance on where to go and what we might see made it extra special.

And the food! Just amazing what came out of that tiny kitchen. It was all delicious.

Can’t wait to come back next Valentines!”

“Dear Lynn and Mark

A lovely week, made so by your every attention, your good company and not to be overlooked Mark’s cuisine. To have found the BVI after Irma was, from our entirely selfish perspective, delightful, yet tempered by the knowledge that many suffered and lost. That said, to have seen these pretty islands uncrowded and at natures own ease, was of particular pleasure. Pacific Wave is a lovely boat.
All the best Claude.”

“Dear Lynn and Mark,

A few words cannot do justice to the great times we had aboard Pacific Wave. However, in an attempt to do so… thank you for a great, fantastic, wonderful & relaxing time during our honeymoon week! The food and the drink were on par, if not better than Michelin 3 stars. The rum punch is the best on the islands.
We enjoyed being on a true, gorgeous sailboat & your handling of her. You both knew the best places to go both above and below the water. The turtles were the highlight of Brooke’s time snorkeling, and Lynn’s knowledge of the local marine life was outstanding.
Thank you both for a honeymoon we will treasure for the rest of our lives. I guarantee we will be back on the Pacific Wave with you two again soon.”

Brooke & Andrew – Scottsdale Arizona USA

“Dear Lynn and Mark,

This was our first trip on a sailboat and in the BVI/UVSI. You made our trip memorable from the snorkelling in the caves, to the delicious food, and wonderful beaches. We could not have asked for a more experienced couple to make us feel comfortable and safe. We will never forget these memorable 8 amazing days sailing!
PS thanks for the pancakes
PPS Mom and Dad love the coffee
Much love Katie – age 11

Well as usual, Katie had the last word! Thank you, thank you, thank you. After decades of dreaming of sailing in the BVI, we’ve just watched it all come true these past 8 days.
We truly hope our paths cross again – either in these beautiful islands or maybe up north sometime. Safe travels always and please keep in touch.”

9 - 15 April 2017 - USVI/BVI Family of Five

Dear Lynn and Mark,

What a fabulous week! We could not have asked for two more experienced and knowledgeable pairs of hands to charter us through the British Virgin Islands. And what a comfortable and well appointed boat to do it in we had no idea our accommodations would be so luxurious!
We loved all the quiet anchorages off the beaten track that you took us to. We all enjoyed boating and swimming off the boat. The kids learned to snorkel and kayak and are all quite pleased they got to drive the dinghy. And as we said every day, the food was amazing! The meals far surpassed our expectations and were graciously served every time. The kids told us that we need to bump it up when we get home!
Gary has been talking about sailing in the BVI for some 25+ years and we will now all have our own memories of crystal blue water, white sand beaches, sunny skies and wind in your face as you sail across the waters.
Thank you for helping to make this a wonderful and memorable experience for our family!

Dear Lynn and Mark,

Thank you so much for the wonderful trip! Its not easy keeping 2 adults and 3 teenage boys happy but you did it! ☺ We had great weather and had great sails and fabulous snorkeling. Saw so many cool fish l cant even begin to list. And Mark prepared delicious meals everyday, which we ate hungrily after our snorkeling adventures. A great experience had by all!
Thanks again,
Sarane, Peter, Ross, Ian & Colin Rhinebeck, NY, USA

This was one of my favourite trips. My favourite part was the spotted eagle ray. It was about 6 feet long but a gentle giant. It was so pretty and it went in circles around me for 10 mins.

Dear Lynn and Mark

What an adventure on the Pacific Wave sailboat! Our hosts were so gracious, they described the different islands with an historical flair and always chose the best snorkelling spots. It was amazing to sail the Sir Francis Drake Channel and moor in an isolated, hidden away sheltered bay. It always felt like l was with trusted seaworthy people who had mastered finding the wind and sharing their passion for sailing.
Our meals were delicious and a great time to be merry and relax in such a beautiful setting. great sunsets and turquoise seas.
This trip definitely built wonderful memories of sky, wind, sun and sea.
Thanks so much for a wonderful week.

Our week with you was amazing. This was one of my bucket list, and the first big trip (many more to come) for Cindia and me. The beauty, the soft winds, the amazing dinners and lunches, and (gasp) breakfast you served were great! Now for 2 months of dieting.
We hoped to have good diving, and you arranged a special and more expensive outfit, that was just great! Cindia and l loved our diving, so beautiful.
Your kindness, warmth and good humour were just incredible. Thank you so much for a fabulous week!

For our family of five, we all agree that we would stay another week on the yacht if we could! We had an amazing week on the Pacific Wave! The snorkelling was the best weve ever seen. The dinghy pickup service on our snorkelling outings was first class! Lynns knowledge of the BVIs is book-worthy; start writing Mark! We had a lovely vacation and made memories to last a lifetime. The food was the best in the BVIs! Mark is a master in that tiny little kitchen & Lynn is a gracious host, even when we spill the pitcher of milk ☺. Thank you for an amazing vacation we did not have our sea-legs prior to boarding the Pacific Wave. Now, we are salty sea dogs and are sad our sail has come to an end. Please put a visit to Washington State on your list of things to do! Thank you for your kindness and for sharing this adventure with us! Well come back again. Let us know if you ever need any deck hands weve got 3 willing boys! Just need to feed them!

With love, The Duff family

Hospitality was amazing thank you both!

Dear Lynn & Mark

What a week! You have spoiled us rotten the sails, the seas, the food, the laughs we couldnt have asked for a better way to sail into 2016 thank you!
Your knowledge and expertise of sailing and all of the secret spots and coves in the BVIs made for a wonderful week. We loved stargazing with that alien machine we will surely be talking about that device for years.
We were honoured to have had the chance to read excerpts from Marks book what an incredible adventure! We look forward to reading it in print someday soon!!
We hope you have a happy, healthy 2016.
Hope to see you both soon,

Our second cruise on the beautiful Pacific Wave & every bit as good as the first cruise, if not better! Its hard to find words to express how you have both made this holiday just amazing.
We have spent an amazing week in paradise cruising around the Caribbean Islands of Martinique, Dominica & Guadeloupe. The crews local knowledge was excellent, they knew exactly where to take us on each island & it was such a treat for us to explore these new destinations. Weve enjoyed a week filled with great company, fantastic cuisine, lots of fun & great sailing on the beautiful yacht Pacific Wave. Chartering Pacific Wave has been awesome & we cant wait to return.
See you both soon.

10 - 17 June 2015 - USVI/BVI Family of Four

Lynn & Mark
It takes a special crew to make a week in the BVIs special to our 89year old father. We cannot thank you enough for your patience throughout the week with an elderly old salt. My father was most impressed with Lynns sailing skills. To quote shes a hell of a skipper! Mark of course made his mark in our memory as a laid-back chef of considerable talent. To sum up, there would be no other vessel other than the Pacific Wave that could have made our time in the BVIs as special as it was. Furthermore, my fathers time in the BVIs (1950s, 1960s, 1970s) was the reason we took the trip. His happiness for returning one more time cannot be overstated! Thanks to you both for an incredible experience.
Ditto to my bros comments! Lynn & Mark were the perfect fit for us. Could not have been better at making sure 89 year old dad felt at ease! Loved your local knowledge and insight into the islands and creatures that live here!
The meals INCREDIBLE!!
Such special memories for all 4 of us. This has been a dream come true for my dad. To be sailing these islands with his 3 kids. Lynn & Mark are superb hosts. Their knowledge of the island, local flora & fauna and stories of their years of cruising these waters made each day a new and interesting experience. Not easy to sail with such an old croc (as my dad calls himself) but they were patient, gracious and attentive. Truly an experience to be treasured!

Very seldom do things go exactly as planned, almost never do things exceed expectations. this week was one of those times. The snorkelling was spectacular the sails were exciting, and above all, the company with Lynn and Mark seeing to our every need made this a wonderful week. Sadly now back to Philadelphia cold and dreary as it is this time of year but with warm memories with new friends in Mark & Lynn to keep the memories alive. See you again.


Thank you very much for taking us on a wonderful trip. You were fantastic hosts and we had an incredible time. Its going to be pretty tough to leave this all behind. Im glad we got to do this trip with you, and l wish you all the best

There is no excuse for me at home now), and the explorations to new islands everyday. Neither of us had been to the BVIs before, but now we will definitely come back. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality, your stories, and your willingness to teach us about sailing whenever we asked. We will always remember this trip with such great memories. Thank you!

Lynn & Mark
Thanks for a wonderful week of sailing & exploring the BVIs! Your knowledge & advice on travel options was superb. The food was amazing & the service was thoughtful & gracious. As bare-boaters for many years, your excellent service will make it hard to go back to DIY again. I admired your stealthy ways of attending to the many details of sailing while leaving your guests undisturbed. Bravo! We hope to be back again.

You guys are AWESOME!! Thanks for the recipes Mark we will think of you fondly when we try to recreate your masterpieces!

French guys sorry for the language
You know what??? We are happy . Why???
We thought we knew the BVIs, and a little about sailing but, but. We discover so many unknown places, new snorkelling spots and all that aboard an elegant sailing yacht. And more the comfort onboard SY Pacific Wave is top level Five Star ***** due to the permanent work of Lynn & Mark.
So .. everything is working perfectly onboard, sailing, comfort, anchoring choices.
More again . Lynn & Mark always smiling, always taking care of us, and permanently ahead of our wishes.
About the food now, we think unbelievable to find on a sailing yacht such a top level excellent cook. Mark has got a secret its the smile of Captain Lynn of course.
Thank you, LYNN, MARK & PACIFIC WAVE no end of dreams!

The food served on board has been excellent due to Marks skill in the galley, and Lynns attentive service has ensured we were very well catered for.
All in all a great holiday!

For delivering such an unforgettable experience in the British Virgin Islands!
You guys are super organised. You work together as an amazing team with seamless ease, whether it be sailing the Pacific Wave, producing the most amazing meals with the panache of a 5 star chef to identifying what we wanted in our time on this fantastic yacht. Your incredible friendliness has been the icing on the cake.
No amount of research could have found the fabulous spots that your intimate knowledge of the Islands could. from snorkelling off Mosquito Island to super swanky cocktail bars and off the beaten track eateries with breath taking views.
Its been an absolute joy that we have been lucky enough to share your stunning yacht this week, and, whats more, l think you may have sparked an interest to start sailing as a hobby!!!
You guys are the best!!!

´We had an amazing time and Pacific Wave was the highlight of the trip! Thank you so much for sorting it out.

I left the day as a complete surprise for Colin and he was completely gobsmacked when he saw Pacific Wave.

The day was perfect and Lynn and Mark let Colin sail us to Peter Island which he loved every minute of.

The food was outstanding 5 star restaurant standard. We also had a snorkel with Lynn and she was so knowledgeable about all of the different types of coral and fish.

I was thoroughly impressed with how professional but very friendly Lynn and Mark were, they made us feel at home. They have a beautiful yacht with all of the little touches of a 5 star hotel.

I cant thank them enough, they made a lovely holiday a very special holiday indeed.

Thanks again

Hi Lynn & Mark,
Vince emailed me with the following glowing report about his charter with you (below in italic). You obviously did an over-the-top job to make this ´the best vacation of their lives´! It´s been an absolute pleasure working with you and I´ll try and send some further business your way soon.

Thank you,

´It was the best vacation of our lives!

It was the best sailing we have ever done and we have sailed all over the world. I have been sailing for 53 years and my wife for 35 years. We took turns day by day and did most of the sailing. We covered a hundred miles.
Based on the vacation we are buying another boat. I am retiring next year and we are going to sail from San Diego to Seattle and Vancouver where we have family and friends and then to Hawaii and Tahiti
We are buying a new Island Packet 485(52)
Thanks for all your help in setting this up
I am recommending the cruise to several couples here at work

My wife and l have been sailors all our lives. This is the best sailing we have ever done. The boat is awesome. The weather was fantastic. Every meal on Pacific Wave was perfect. Lynn & Mark are top notch sailors. Probably the best owner operator team we know of for chartering.
I have sailed all over the US, Europe, Hawaii and off western Canada, but my wife, Jan and l like the BVI the best so far. This was such a great experience it convinced us to buy a new boat ourselves.

Thank you very much. The Waldrons wrote glowingly about their cruise
with you on Pacific Wave...

´Wonderful trip... Boat was great, accommodations really comfortable, food was excellent... Lynn and Mark made us very much at home, and we really enjoyed cruising the BVI... we had been there before at a resort, but being in various anchorages really was enjoyable, and
the sailing was something different for us, and we all learned a little bit. Everything we had hoped for....

Thanks. I look forward to sending more of our clients to cruise with you.

Lynn & Mark
What a fabulous week of experiencing the BVI onboard Pacific Wave! We came having had all the resort experiences, and were hoping to have a different kind of vacation, and l can truly say our expectations were exceeded. The two of you made our stay so comfortable, with the fabulous food (thanks Mark), the great accommodation, and all the fun activities. As a family, the chance to spend time together in such beautiful surroundings, without the distraction of home, has been a gift. I know the snorkelling that the boys did will be something they will remember forever and Shane will certainly relish being rummy champ! For Wendy & Myself, l think being able to sit and enjoy the solitude and surroundings of all the great anchorages was a highlight, and an inspiration to get even more out of our motor boat at home! Thanks Lynn for going horseback riding with Wendy, a trip would not be complete without a hack! Maybe next time we will play golf instead though! Most of all thanks for making us feel so welcome onboard Pacific Wave, & for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us. Hope to see you up our way in Long Island Sound!

An amazing week and a half sailing the BVI. The food is amazing probably the best chef in the BVI is on the Pacific Wave. But also the willingness to entertain two beach bums trawling the bars of the BVI. Brilliant to sail such a beautiful big boat with all the other boats taking pictures. Thanks Mark for teaching me to snorkel. Mel has done some of her best diving on the Rhone with Lynn. Dont want to get off.

Upon arriving to the Pacific Wave we saw a beautiful yacht. Upon leaving, we saw it as that and so much more. We saw times of laughter, gourmet foods, exciting destinations, days of sailing adventures, fun explorations, and the gentle waves of the sea. What really made our experience amazing was the caring crew that took us on our journey. We have such wonderful memories of our voyage with you. We will forever remember the great times, delicious desserts, and awesome crew of the Pacific Wave xxx

Lynn, you really made us all feel at home. Your knowledge of the USVI and BVI is truly remarkable.
Thank you both for this enjoyable week. We will never forget it!

Dear Lynn & Mark

Thanks so much. We have had a great time. We enjoyed each island and the diving was great. We really enjoyed the wreck of the Rhone. You let us snorkel at great places and we loved it. It was fun watching Hall & Kassey wakeboard in the ocean. Mark the food was wonderful as l am sure you could tell because we ate it all. It is very beautiful and we loved it. Best, first & only 50th Birthday Ive had. Courtney & Mark

Thanks so much for your hospitality. We could not have asked for a better crew. Thanks for teaching me how to sail and for making such great food. It was a wonderful experience, and l would recommend you to anyone! Thanks. Miller

Thanks for sharing the Pacific Wave with us. I had a great time! Thanks. Hall

Thanks so much for taking us around to different islands and for telling us the best places to snorkel. I have loved every minute on your gorgeous yacht. Mark you are an amazing cook!

10 - 17 April 2012 - BVI - Family of 2 adults & 3 teenagers

What a fantastic week. Sun, wind, and a little rain one day made the sailing interesting and all the activities in between kept us busy while not under sail of course. I cant not mention the food which was way above expectations (i.e. unbelievably good) and on offer around the clock!
Needless to say, the next outing on the Solent will only serve to highlight how special the BVI, Pacific Wave and her crew/owners are.
Thanks from all of us.

Tim, Marie-Luce, Julia, Margot & Victoria London UK

This was a fantastic week! The weather was amazing and the mood was perfect. Between waterskiing with Mark and wondering around Peter Island this was an extremely and unbelievably fun experience.
Thank you so much.

Dear Lynn & Mark
Thank you so much for making our honeymoon the most amazing time. We will look back on our week with you, each and every year, with such fond memories. Lynn you are truly a great sailor. Thanks so much for teaching Ash as much as you could in a week and for encouraging me to take the helm! We will also go away with great memories of your Pacific Wave cocktail! Mark, you amaze me! The meals you can create in a yachts galley is a feat that not many could do! The food has been exquisite in taste and presentation. You have inspired me to learn to make homemade pasta! That will be one of my culinary challenges for 2012.
The knowledge you both possess on the BVI adds so much to your guests cruise. Knowing the best places to go, see, eat etc., dependant on a guests needs is invaluable.
I definitely think this is the most relaxed l have every left a holiday and its all thanks to you both. You are such wonderful people who took wonderful care of us.
Thank you so much for sharing Pacific Wave with us.

Boy time flies while youre having fun, we had a blast as this week flew by! Mark & Lynn you made us feel comfortable from the very first day we stepped onboard Pacific Wave. We enjoyed our relaxed dining experience with fantastic gourmet meals. We loved the snorkelling and perhaps in the next few years well progress to diving. Thank you Lynn & Mark for your excellent knowledge both on land, at sea and under the water. I cannot believe how much fun we have had! We had a great week because we felt secure with your professionalism and at ease with your hospitality. Hope to see you again soon.

What a fantastic week! Thank you so much for a wonderful time. You two have truly made our experience in the BVI what it was. Pacific Wave is such a beautiful boat with lovely accommodations. It was all the best: scuba diving on Christmas Eve; snorkelling on Boxing Day; introducing us to Ting (we have to figure out how to import it to the US); sailing in glorious trade winds yet still seeming to find us a hidden protected cove each night. And the food! Thanks so much for a great Christmas we only hope Richard Branson can join us next time.

Thanksgiving will forever in the future (particularly the meal) be a less exciting holiday! Excellent itinerary, to be repeated soon!

This has been a week in paradise in every way! Thank you so much Lynn & Mark please stay in touch

After a close encounter with the local night life we set sail for a relaxing week with Pacific Wave. The days drifted by blissfully fuelled by a plentiful supply of rum punches and a five star menu executed to perfection by samuria chef supreme Mark. Weather perfect, turtles friendly, scuba & snorkel most successful a great vacation onboard Pacific Wave. Thank you!

For a pregnant women to start her entry in the guest book raving about the food may be a bit clichd. but with food like this.! We started off the week with Marks Dorado Stacks, sailed through every starter and entre sent up the stairs and demolished the most amazing Thanksgiving spread! I and everyone onboard enjoyed every bite and will try our hand at the Dorado Stacks back at home thanks to the Dining on Deck Cookbook which features Marks recipe. During the occasional non-eating moment, this pregnant woman even took the wheel under Lynns supreme guidance. Thank you both Lynn & Mark for a spectacular week, next time well rig up the playpen in the dinghy!

Our vacation onboard Pacific Wave started with a bang! An aggressive drinking night at the Fat Turtle (in Yacht Haven Grande, St. Thomas) followed by a week of well needed relaxing on the open seas. Caribbean Thanksgiving might be the only way to do it! Thank you Mark & Lynn for an unforgettable Holiday!

From Sopers to Norman, to Peter, to Marina Cay via Guana, Mosquito and Biras Creek, to Anegada for Lobsters and Grog and return, to Marina Cay via Leverick Bay and Great Dog, you spoiled us with fine cruising, good food, and a hell of a lot of fun!

´... after reading all the wonderful accolades from previous guests, all we can say is ´ditto.´ But there have been no words written yet to truly convey how we all have been touched by this experience at sea, and the privilege of sharing time with you both aboard PACIFIC WAVE. We always felt much more than your guests, we felt like your family. Seeing new places and adventures is only remembered by the people you share them with and how they made them special. .. what a thrill... to complete our Scuba Diving certification ...I only hope that Lynn, you and I will have the opportunity to dive together one day very soon. ... The purpose of life is to experience joy. ... just know that for 9 days in March, you both brought much joy in ours.´

´... Pacific Wave was an oasis of welcome. An excellent first night dinner of Mahi Mahi followed next morning by a good sail to Norman Island and snorkelling in the caves - such a wonderful anchorage, the full moon rising was spectacular. The dolphins off Great Harbour were a true highlight swimming with a pod of 17! A heavy squall on the way to North Sound gave us a sense of adventure before reconnecting with landside at Bitter End then Mosquito Island snorkelling before a good run back to Marina Cay. What an incredible trip. The BEST of ALL our charters! - Martyn

When you have adult children leading busy lives in New York you have to offer a pretty spectacular vacation to pull them away and we did! Pacific Wave with Lynn & Mark exceeded everybodys expectation in every way! Thank you so very much we certainly hope to be back! - Grete

Weve swum, weve sailed, weve learned about the Rhone, weve been up close and personal with dolphins, weve had the most amazing meals . not to mention a rum punch or two, weve enjoyed a private beach and a glass or two of vino on board Pacific Wave in short an absolutely fantastic weeks holiday. Well be back! Thank you! - Magnus

An amazing trip exceeding my high expectations. Wonderful sailing on a magnificent boat around the many sights the BVI has to offer. Doubtless the best swimming pool in the World, enjoyed with knowledgeable hosts. Fantastic sailing and the secret to the perfect Pavlova too! Many thanks - Kerry

This was an incredible trip! Pacific Wave and the BVIs teamed up to provide fun, sun, and close encounters with magnificent fish and dolphins. Lynn and Mark made this trip as relaxing as possible and have forever ensured this as one of our best vacations. We will send pictures for the book! - Anna

28 December - 4 January 2011 -BVI - Family of 2 Adults & 3 Children

We had warned the children that living on a boat felt like living in a small place you have both made the beautiful Pacific Wave feel like a very large place indeed such has been the most welcoming and relaxed way you have both looked after us from the very start. We were just sitting here, drinking our Rum and Cokes (Sarah and Guy!) and getting very nostalgic about our last night on Pacific Wave we were discussing if a sailing holiday was something to be repeated - emphatic yes all around. You both work consistently hard to look after your guests, relentlessly asking if we have all that we need the food did indeed present itself in an unrelenting gastronomic delight Mark thanks, amazing what is produced from the galley! As for Pacific Wave well we chose her on her looks and we have not been disappointed, she sets the bar high. On top of all this, what a nature trail .... Endless fish of course, but additionally swimming with pelicans, helping baby leather back turtles, finding struggling tarantulas, catching tuna for supper and so on and so on... Thanks masses from Guy and Sarah...

Thank you very much for a fantastic 7 days! I loved the snorkelling and thought the wakeboarding was great fun. It was wonderful to learn about winching and catching the tuna was an added bonus! Many thanks Oscar, aged 14

Thank you both so much for this week. It has been fantastic and I have particularly enjoyed the snorkelling, waterskiing, drinking Ting and sunbathing, but to be honest l have loved it all! I will miss everything here when l go back to England, but l would like to come back here again to Pacific Wave very soon! Thanks masses again for the great food as well. X - Phoebe, aged 12

Thank you both for an excellent week on the Pacific Wave. It was a highlight of the whole year. Many of the activities l enjoyed are; snorkelling (once l finally got into the water!), looking for shells on some beaches, and many others. The food was delicious all through the week, and it was very relaxing sunbathing. Thank you again for a great week xxx . - Immy, aged 10

´That was great fun, and amazingly organized, not always the easiest thing to achieve when confronted with two quite small, opinionated children. Lynn ran PACIFIC WAVE with absolute, but understated authority, very reassuring. Mark worked the boat, cooked brilliantly for all demands, and had Rory clinging to him like an adoring limpet. PACIFIC WAVE was great. We have sailed quite a lot of boats and she handled beautifully and had a lovely ´feel´ to the helm. Very splendid! Finally the BVI lived up to their billing with great weather, good (and very friendly) winds and spectacular anchorages. A great experience, and long may PACIFIC WAVE prosper.´ - Mary & Patrick

´Thank you again for a great week, and for being so accommodating of the whims and behavior of James and Rory. If you ever want to cruise Suffolk on a 26 foot yacht, you are welcome to borrow ours. Mark you could show Lynn all those riverside pubs.´ - Antony

´What a fantastic holiday, & beautiful boat! Thank you for looking after us all so well & putting up with all of our different -- & often conflicting requests. The boys will have quite a shock when they get home to our small boat; Rory will just have to use his imagination to dream up what he will build us! Thank you.´ - Jo

Pacific Wave is a very special boat (Im very jealous) and you both made us feel very relaxed at all times (a great achievement given the market turmoil!!). Your knowledge of the area was a great benefit and snorkeling (the first time for Phyllis) in the Tobago Cays was marvelous. And talking about enjoyment, Marks meals were fantastic - we feel very spoiled. Thanks for everything you are truly great hosts.

On behalf of the grown-ups... thank you for EVERYTHING! We felt special and spoiled the entire week. The anchorages were perfect many were new to us in spite of several other bareboat charters in the BVI. The boat is special and gorgeous. And the food was beyond our wildest dreams.

´Sailing on Pacific Wave has been a relaxing, fun time. I have to admit that l approached this adventure with a bit of trepidation would l be able to enjoy the voyage while worrying about mal de mer. Knowing that l had lots of support eased my concerns. You all were terrific. Your knowledge of the boat and the area helped me relax. Wonderful food, comfortable accommodation, and most of all, great company created lovely, memorable times. Merci.

Barbara Salt Lake City

Lynn & Mark Barbara & l thoroughly enjoyed this 7 day sail. You both were just wonderful sailing skills, attention to your guests & lovely personalities. We so appreciate your professionalism, friendship, attention to every need, wonderful meals, and a fine horses neck (Dark & Stormy). Thank you. We recommend you highly, had a wonderful time and are grateful for your great hosting &captaincy. Thank you.

Jim (AKA Jimmy Bob) Salt Lake City

Dear Lynn & Mark We have spent years bareboat chartering. What a pleasure it has been having you to plan our day sails with us, and providing such wonderful meals. It has been a spectacular voyage. OK many superlatives have come your way from our entire crew. They are well deserved. But let me add what might be a unique thought. Pacific Wave and its crew created an atmosphere where three couples, friends but not yet comrades, turned the corner and developed feelings for each other that are deeper, richer and more enduring. What a gift we received from each other. The sun, the ocean, & Pacific Wave were essential. The two of you provided the ingredients to work the magic, thank you both.

Michael Salt Lake City

Aboard Pacific Wave, a beautiful and elegant yacht handled by Lynn & Mark, a beautiful and elegant couple! Nonpareil service, sensational food, wonderful comradity. All in all a week to long remember. And, the added touch of captain to mate, and mate to captain referring to each other as Darling. You two are wonderful and deserve nothing but fair winds and smooth seas.´

We had a splendid time. Circum-navigating Tortola, we snorkeled, swam, water-skied, ate (amazing food), and sailed! Gorgeous! Absolutely beautiful boat and the most wonderful, capable, friendly captain and mate! Thank you!!

Marc & Julia New York

What was more fun? Wakeboarding around Le Chiffres mega yacht, the divine poached eggs and bacon or seeing the genoa unfurl on the passage from Sopers Hole to Norman Island? Getting the balance between looking after your guests and bothering them and letting them have a go at sailing and being in control is a fine art which you do really well!
The boat is of course beautiful! The excellent cooking solved the Caribbean food problem completely and left even the best restaurants (Biras Creek) in the shaded. Thank you for a first class week! We hope to sail with you again sometime

Simon London

Also had an excellent time! I loved wakeboarding, being under full sail and seeing the dolphins!

Eight fabulous days aboard Pacific Wave, thank you Lynn and Mark. Very unfortunate that some of our party were forced to depart early, but all the more reason to come back again soon. The meals were outstanding and the islands and snorkeling just gorgeous. Pacific Wave is unsurpassed!

Diana & Ian - Canada

In the face of unexpected events, Lynn & Mark accommodated our needs and gave us a home to return to. The last few days of sailing have been outstanding. The boat is immaculate and the food a continually unfolding gastronomic delight! I shall miss all the company, the laughter, learning about shepherding. Come to Canada. We sail there too! Thank you

Our second voyage on Pacific Wave, this time with the three kids. A magical trip again. You showed us beautiful scenery, stunning anchorages, wonderful times. And ... the kids loved it! I have rarely seen them engaged to this extent. Thanks again for your hard work and companionship. We always feel safe with you guys.

´Lynn & Mark
You all gave us a great and memorable week aboard Pacific Wave. She is a beautiful, seaworthy boat and sails magnificently, a rare combination. Our sail to Nevis, Monserrat, Guadeloupe & Iles des Saintes was tremendous fun. You all looked after us wonderfully and worked so hard in some fairly lumpy seas. Marks work both above and below decks amazed us. Out one minute working the boat, the next producing terrific meals. We have both sailed all our lives and therefore really appreciate the hard work you put into making our week with you special.
Let us know if you bring Pacific Wave North we would love to see you there too. Thank you all for a really terrific week.´

´As a final touch to our two week holiday to Antigua Lynn & Mark took us all (6) on a fantastic adventure on their beautiful boat. We started off from Falmouth Harbour and set sail towards Green Island for a wonderful and delicious lunch followed by a nice swim and chilled rose wine on deck. Thursday morning we had our Scandinavian morning swim and tea, breakfast of fruits and croissants, before yet again setting sail to Carlisle Bay where hundreds of turtles welcomed us and we had a lovely lunch and more rose! Weve had a wonderful time with you both. Thank you so much for giving us this amazing final touch to our holiday. Lots of love xxxx´

´A fabulous day out for the whole family. Lynn and Mark made us very welcome and it felt as though the boat was our own! A delicious lunch whipped up by Mark went down very easily along with a superb glass of white wine. Thank you both very much.´
