Sunshine Baby 2 4.8 Crew Profile
Hugo is a seasoned sailor who has been captivated by water from a young age. He grew up in England, in a small county just outside of London and spent most holidays by the seaside of Cornwall. At the tender age of seven, Hugo discovered his passion for sailing, racing lasers and 49er´s while at school. Later in his youth he became an instructor for this.
Hugo´s passion for sailing and the ocean grew stronger after school, so he headed to the South of France to work on luxury Superyachts. At 18, he was selected and sponsored to race across the Atlantic being the youngest crew in the fleet. This is when Hugo realized his true calling. He completed his Yacht Masters amongst other qualifications with the dream of becoming a captain.
Hugo has at present, worked as Skipper and 1st Mate on luxury yachts of up to 100ft. From sailing charters to sea-life safari tours - he´s been sailing in some of the most beautiful and exotic locations around the world. After completing his second crossing to Antgiua, he is currently obtaining his Ocean Master.
When he´s not at work, Hugo is an avid water-sports enthusiast and instructor. He loves to coach waterskiing, wakeboarding, and wake-surfing. Surfing, diving and fishing are also just a few his many hobbies. Whether on the water or on land, Hugo is always seeking new adventures and finding ways to connect with the sea.
It´s not just Hugo´s sailing skills and experience that sets him apart. He is an all-around, genuine, energetic, light-hearted person with a great sense of humour and incredible ambition.
Hugo looks forward to welcoming you onboard Sunshine Baby and exploring the beautiful islands of the BVIs with you!
Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, amidst natural and sunny landscapes, Mila and the sea have a lifetime relationship. As a worldwide traveler, exploring new places and cultures are key to Mila, as is studying and learning different subjects.
Originally a graduated Veterinarian who also devoted a few of her years in a journalism major. She has a very diverse set of past work experiences: from a communication and marketing analyst, to handling and caring for pumas and jaguars in the Bolivian jungle, to becoming a yacht chef.
Over 10 years ago, at Palma de Mallorca, Spain, was Mila´s first encounter with yachting. Ever since that day, she could often be found in boats, from all shapes and sizes, exploring the bays and beaches from her homeland.
2022 was the year she decided to unite both of her passions, cooking and sailing. After taking professional cooking classes in Rio, she became a yacht charter chef, having sailed through Spain, Brazil, Panama, the Virgin Islands, and Antigua and Barbuda.
In order to further fuel her desire for new knowledge and new cultures, she has signed up for an adventure half-way across the globe, in the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in Sydney, Australia, which she will complete just prior to joining Sunshine Baby. Mila hopes to bring new and innovative techniques to help her translate her passions and visions into cooking as a means to keep dazzling her guests.

Sunshine Baby 2 4.8 Guest Reviews
An absolutely heavenly week with Paula and Simon
An absolutely heavenly week with Paula and Simon on Sunshine Baby 2. The boat is new and luxurious and gorgeous, and the USVIs are breathtaking. But more than the setting, what really blew us away, was our crew. Paula and Simon turned this into the trip of a lifetime. We were Paula’s first all-vegan charter but you would have thought she was a completely vegan chef. Every single meal was 5-star quality. We are so spoiled now. How will we ever eat well again without Paula?? Right off the bat, you get the sense that Simon is just one of those people who is extraordinarily capable and can do anything. There was a storm our first day with very rough seas but we weren’t concerned even for a second. We trusted his judgement and skill without hesitation right off the bat. He also taught our 12-yr-old daughters how to wakeboard and spent hours and hours pulling them around in the dinghy, and doing it enthusiastically! Paula’s trivia game on the final night was the best. We became friends with Simon and Paula and miss them a ton. We´d love to take another charter in the future but we all agreed, it has to be with them and no one else!
They really made our trip the BEST vacation!
We set sail aboard Sunshine Baby II May 29 - June 5, 2022 with Simon and Paula! Our trip was amazing! We’ve already recommended this vacation destination, sailing and the best crew to our family and friends! We came into the trip with no itinerary plans because we wanted to leave it up to our crew, and they did not disappoint! The food was amazing, as well as the sailing and all of the laughs we shared with Simon and Paula! We enjoyed them being on board with us and getting to know them. They really made our trip the BEST vacation! We would do this trip 100Xs again with them! We miss them already!
Thank you for all of the incredible hospitality, adventures and memories that will last forever!

Simon and Paula were unbelievable
We sailed on Sunshine Baby 2! It was amazing, Simon and Paula were unbelievable. They made my husbands 50th birthday sail better than we could’ve imagined!
The food, drinks and fun we had aboard Sunshine Baby 2 was above and beyond and we can’t wait to go back and sail with them again!
an experience of a lifetime!
Thank you so much for an eventful and exciting trip! We appreciate all of the hard work and time you both put in to make this happen and to give our family an experience of a lifetime!
We couldn´t have dreamed up a better trip or crew!
Thank you for everything! We couldn´t have dreamed up a better trip or crew!
thanks so very much for making this trip of a lifetime!
Simon and Paula, thanks so very much for making this trip of a lifetime!
incredibly impressed by the professionalism and hospitality
We sailed with Simon and Paula on Sunshine Baby II. We were incredibly impressed by the professionalism and hospitality! Both Simon and Paula went above and beyond their roles as Captain and Chef. They did not overlook a single detail to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable trip! Simon is an excellent captain as well as very friendly and personable- we felt like we were being hosted by dear friends! Paula’s meals are easily 5 star worthy both in taste and presentation!! We truly hope to sail with them again in the coming future!
It was perfect in every way!!! Highly highly recommended!
Absolutely amazing week on Sunshine Baby II with Chef Paula and Captain Simon!!!! We couldn’t have imagined a better week. This was our second group trip to the islands, first was chartered out of BVI and this one with Ocean Yacht Club out of USVI. Trips of a lifetime, that is for sure. Paula’s cuisine was exceptional!!!! Every meal was breathtaking! I don’t know how we go on without Paula’s cooking. Simon planned every day and every stop perfectly for our group!! We appreciate the level of detail and thought that went into the itinerary. Simon nailed it!!!!!! So well thought out. Thank you both for a wonderful week in paradise. It was perfect in every way!!! Highly highly recommended!!!
We were never disappointed.
We sailed with Simon and Paula on Sunshine Baby II. It was a fantastic trip and our crew were very accommodating and friendly. Simon was a great captain and made sure we had everything we needed to make our trip a success. Paula cooked some great meals and we couldn´t wait to see what her next creation was going to be. We were never disappointed. We would highly recommend Sunshine Baby and her crew. Well worth the cost.
This was the adventure of a lifetime with the most incredible chef + skipper
We lost track of time all week & were only reminded based on when Paulas amazing meals were served! And we never missed snack time. This was the adventure of a lifetime with the most incredible chef + skipper, Paula + Simon. The blue water, sunshine, amazing company & crew will leave lasting memories!
What made our trip the greatest was by far our amazing crew
Beautiful boat, islands, water and skies. What made our trip the greatest was by far our amazing crew. Simon & Paula are truly the best. It takes a special kind of person to make a group feel like they can relax and take in all the fun and beauty the islands have to offer. Thank you Paula & Simon, you’re officially family now.
you both are incredible people inside and out
When people ask about this trip, my only answer is incredible! Everything was incredible... the boat, the people,
the islands... However, what made it unforgettable was Paula + Simon! Paulas cooking was ridiculous! We never had a
watch on, just navigated our days around the meal bell. Every meal was beautiful and well thought out. Thank you for
making us feel like we were in your home. Simon, it didn’t matter what we asked, he did everything and anything with a smile. He is definitely the most competent sailor on these waters and made everything look easy! He would take the kids out tubing and wake boarding! Thank you both for everything, you both are incredible people inside and out.´
