Kristyna and Mike are a young, fun loving couple who have a passion for travel, people and adventure. Their love for meeting new people and exploring new places has now brought them to the Caribbean.
Mike always had a love for water sports. While studying in Cape Town his interest in sailboats evolved. After finishing his degree, Mike began his yachting career as Deckhand on a 45 day passage from Cape Town to St Maarten. This experience had him hooked and he proceeded to work on different boats around the world. After obtaining his RYA Yachtmaster Offshore (for both motor and sail boats), he skippered 2 boats simultaneously in the Med. Sailing boats and the adventures that ensue is what drives Mike's passion for the ocean. He holds RYA Yachtmaster Ocean and AEC Engineering Certification.
Whether you're interested in sailing, diving, snorkelling, fishing, hiking, discovering uninhabited islands, or just simply relaxing in one of the most scenic tropical destinations in the world, Mike and Kristyna will tailor an experience to your desires. Jemma and Mike look forward to having you aboard Sayang and showing you the best that the Caribbean has to offer.
Stephanie is a Canadian-born adventurer, having lived aboard boats for years and letting the wind bring her from jazz shows in NYC to whale watching in Cape Cod, from the sandy San Blas islands of Panama to colourful Colombia, from dancing in Cuba to snorkeling with rays in the Cayman Islands, and eventually to the Bahamas out-islands where she resided for two years. She believes traveling by sail allows one to experience places in a unique and intimate way.
After working for over a decade in the hospitality and yachting industry, her love of cooking and the ocean led her to Sayang. She believes that fresh local ingredients are key, and knows how to make them shine in her dishes. When not working in the galley, you can find her kitesurfing, chatting to animals or doing yoga.
SAYANG can accommodate 6 guests in 3 cabins. The Master cabin has a queen size bed, shower and toilet. 2 Guest cabins have a queen size bed, shower and toilet.
Alternatively, Sayang's two forward qeen cabins may be merged to form one large Master King Suite.
Likewise, the aft guest suite may be converted to two twin berths.
SAYANG is fully air conditioned through out. Crew has a separate heads and shower.
Dear Mike and Kristyna
Thank you very much for making our first trip to the BVI so memorable. We loved every minute of everyday. The sailing was wonderful! Snuba diving was excellent and I doubt we would ever thought of it, if you had not suggested it. The food was outstanding! Kristyna you are an excellent chef and Mike is a great 1st mate in the kitchen! On the other side of this coin is Mike - great captain and Kristyna great1st mate on the boat! We enjoyed relaxing at Oil Nut Bay - a good midweek break. Sayang is a beautifully maintained boat and your pride in her shines through. We are so glad we booked with you and will forever stick with monohull adventures. We are looking forward to sailing with you again in the future.
Thank you and very best regards,
Rosalind, Robert and Jacob Zils

Thank you for a wonderful week. You guys are the perfect hosts and made us feel like family. Every day was special. The activities were very well aligned with our active lifestyles. The sailing was so much fun. You have a beautiful boat and should be so proud of it, "Our next boat". The meals were excellent. Your presentation and meal design was excellent. Delicious! You are the friendliest and nicest people to spend vacation with. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again!
Mike and Jemma, thank you for teaching me the ropes of sailing, letting me take the helm, pick up some mooring balls, and giving me an unforgettable spring break. I now hope to continue both my sailing career and wakeboarding career throughout life.. I sincerely hope we run into each other on the water in the future. Thanks again! PS- If you ever need a deckhand please don't hesitate to call.

We had an amazing journey! Onboard with 1 year old and 3 year old in tow. We had wonderful meals, amazing sunsets, incredible dives (turtles, and yellowtail and sharks, oh my!) Smooth sailing, laughs and memories to last a lifetime! Thanks Jemma and Mike. We will never forget these last 7 days. We will be back for those fishes (since we had unsuccessful fishing attempts)! Keep sharing these amazing experiences with people from all over the world. Please contact us if you come by NYC!
