Lee aboard Miss Summer
Per, also called "Captain Swede", has traded the cold and dark waters of Sweden to the wonderful waters of the Virgin Islands and other Caribbean islands. He is the captain on board Miss Summer.
Before transitioning into this profession Per worked as a business developer for many years and as a business coach with early startups. Lina has a science in engineering degree and has run a project management and consultancy company for more than 15 years.
Both Per and Lina are certified captains and will at all times put your safety on board first! However, that has never made them fail in giving their guests a wonderful and memorable charter.
Together Per and Lina hold the following certifications and have passed tests and/or training for:
• Coastal Yacht Master
• Inshore Yacht Master
• Practical boat training incl. darkness diploma
• BVI boat master
• Yacht chef certificate, Ashburton Chefs Academy
• STCW – basic safety. Including Personal Safety, Fire, Survival and First Aid.
Compared to "Captain Swede", Lina has a more pronounce friendly name and is simply called Lina. She will be your chef on board Miss Summer, and stand-in captain if needed. Lina is a certified yacht chef, trained at Ashburton Chefs Academy in UK, and she will do her very best to give all guests a nice food experience.
They are both social persons and love to meet new people.
Lina started sailing during childhood, and Per got hocked when they started sailing together over 15 years ago. They first came to the Caribbean in 2015. Together they have had the pleasure to sail the Caribbean waters up and down, but mainly been sailing in the British Virgin Island. Which since 2019 is their home base. Per and Lina bought Miss Summer in May 2019 and has since then been doing crewed charter in BVI.
They will gladly guide you through the islands and take you to the places on your bucket list and to all the other beautiful places you didn't know about. On board they will give you a touch of Scandinavia while you are sailing the Caribbean waters.
With 3 queen berth guest suites, MISS SUMMER also has flexibility in her two forward guests suites, which may become twin berths.

WOW! Words cannot describe the AMAZING trip that we have had on Miss Summer!
Lina & Per have been the PERFECT hosts! Lina's food ad planning skills have been FABULOUS! Thank you for taking the time to make the meals so tailored to us!
And Per has such a funny sense of humor - not to mention the impeccable taste of music! I don't know how John is going to manage without per when we go home!
We have learned so much about so many things on this trip. Boating, sailing, cooking, the BVI and our world in general. Such interesting conversations and laughs. Thank you for sharing your beautiful life with us! We will be back

Thank you Lina & Per - For teaching us about sailing, 25-50-25, BVI, Sweden, Pirates and life.
This was my most memorable trip of my life. I will never forget the laughs, the joy and swimming with a turtle - BVI family forever!
Thank you so much Lina + Per!!
I think that this trip will forever be my favorite. All of the snorkeling fun we had with all of the conch and the fish. But I think one of the best parts was the amazing phone rescue or our night time talks. It is so interesting to learn about your life and all of your previous experiences.
I hope to be able to come back in a few years and get to see you guys again. Give me a call if you ever need a member for Roxnäs riders and I hope you will be able to take over PER-adise one and for all.
Thank you for everything, the food, drinks and memories are unforgettable.
- Forever Miss Summer family! -

Lina & Per
Thank you for the most amazing week ever! It was truly the trip of a lifetime, and it will surely go down as our favorite family trip ever! We made so many amazing memories - soggy dollar, Willy T, Foxy's, massages, scuba certification, snorkeling, Donovan's, The Bath's, Saba Rock, beach party - everything!
We couldn't have had all these incredible moments without you both making this trip so special. We absolutely LOVED Lina's cooking and we definitely need a cookbook! We would also like to welcome Per into the family band, especially after that Swedish music contest. You have the little kids addicted to the Painkillers (virgin ;-) ) now.
Thanks again for everything! You made this week so perfect!
