Hi! We're Freddie and Jacqui!
In 2011 we took the decision to change our lives by giving up our careers, selling our home. We bought a boat and sailed to the Caribbean... Upon the purchase of our boat, the name 'Shavora' was decided upon. (It is Romany for companions, the Romany aspect coming from Freddie's ancesters.)
8+ years later, over 50,000+ miles sailed, the Caribbean duly sailed to and explored, we found a boat wrecked in Carriacou, Grenada, West Indies, to rebuild and bring back from potentially Old Davy's locker! From this, the wrecked boat's previous owner asked us to renovate 'Lady White' back to its former glory, the sister boat to the one we had just bought.. upon its completion, the owner was so pleased, he asked us to charter her..
Come and stay with us aboard Lady White and learn what is involved with renovating our Project Boat, aka 'Lady Grace'!
You'll experience the strengths and weaknesses of accomplishing this in the Caribbean, where many skills are learnt 'on the hop' and there is no chandlery nearby! Try your hand at cabinetry making using local wood, epoxying, fibreglassing, painting, plumbing, engine work and electrical work that is required for the boat. At the end of your stay we will sail to a neighbouring island for some relaxation, snorkeling, swimming and discuss plans for the next stage of renovation! Just email us and we will be in touch with what you'd like to do for your holiday! Simple.
