William Dovey

Will’s passion for sailing took hold at a young age when he first learned the skills in his harbourside hometown of Guernsey in the UK. Years later he hopped onboard the 30m racing sloop Leopard 3 as a deckhand and kicked off his yachting career.

Next, he racked up some serious nautical miles cruising New Zealand, the Pacific, the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. His role as second mate onboard Baltic’s cutting-edge ketch Hetarios took him to far-flung corners of the globe including the Southern Ocean around Cape Horn, and into the Arctic. Shoreside, you can find Will high on a mountain either skiing, climbing, or mountaineering. During an expedition to the Indian Himalayas he climbed to an impressive altitude of almost 7000m.

Rob Dodd

Rob is from Scotland and raised on a family cattle farm. As a young lad he was keen on all things active and adventurous. With a love of skiing, surfing, fishing, hiking and rugby. Sailing came naturally later in life.

Deciding to study naval architecture with an initial interest in offshore renewables, the sailing bug took hold. He then changed his studies to naval architecture with sailing vessel design. Sailing and racing around the western isles of Scotland, it was not long before Rob decided to seek out the warmer weather. Spending his summers as a small sail boat skipper exploring the Greek and Croatia coast lines. After graduation before confining himself to a yacht design office. Rob thought it would be a good idea to go and get some hands-on experience on the yachts he has studied. A few beautiful sail yachts later he finds himself having a great time on Karibu with its wonderful crew.

Aine Hanevy

Áine (Sounds like Awnya) hails from the Emerald Isle of Ireland. After working at sailing schools teaching dinghy sailing for a few years, she decided she wanted to sail further afield than the west coast of Ireland. This led her to jump onboard a boat in Mallorca and set sail to the Caribbean in 2006, where she began her yachting career.

Over the years she has sailed all over the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and east coast of America, where she has entertained and nourished guests, and worked as a stewardess, chef and deckhand. She has a great love for meeting new people, and hospitality, and service comes very naturally to Áine. You can look forward to being greeted by a warm smile and having your needs on board taken well care of. Her passions apart from sailing are yoga, horse riding, hiking and herbalism and when not on boats, she enjoys spending her time exploring new places and cultures.


Available destinations

location Leeward Islands (Antigua, St Martins, St Barts)

This chain of islands sits at the meeting point where the north-eastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic. Created by volcanic activity at the end of the last Ice Age, the arc of islands stretches southwest, offering an eclectic mix of untouched desert islands with some of the most luxurious holiday destinations in the region.

location Windward Islands (St Vincent and Grenadines)

Named for its Trade winds and ocean currents, the Windwards were the destination of choice for pirates. It is the ideal cruising ground for chilled charters. With calm seas and consistent winds (10-25 knots) cruising is effortless, with line-of-sight passages that make island hopping a joy.

location Virgin Islands

The Virgin Islands are a popular charter destination for people enjoying their first charter and for families. The 50 islands have become one of the most popular sailing grounds, with steady Trade winds, gentle currents and lots of idyllic, sheltered anchorages.

location Amalfi Coast and Sicily
dates June - September 2022

The Amalfi Coast is famed for its stunning natural beauty, sweeping vistas and sophisticated day and nightlife. In contrast, the island of Sicily is steeped in history, with rugged terrain and coastline, peppered with beautiful beaches.

location Corsica and Sardinia
dates June - September 2022

Separated by the narrow Strait of Bonifacio, Corsica and Sardinia sit off the Italian and French coasts. Despite being so close, these islands display a character of their own – one Italian-inspired, the other, French. Both have tranquil bays on rugged coastlines, with beautiful beaches to relax on.
