Jocelyn grew up in the Canadian prairies, but that did not stop her from finding water. From a young age she taught swim programs and worked as a lifeguard. Jocelyn spent a lot of time baking and learning skills in the kitchen from her Grandmother. A curiosity and love of adventure took her around the world traveling and exploring other cultures, always taking an interest in new foods and culinary experiences. After completing studies in Travel and Tourism Management, Jocelyn sought more adventure and discovered sailing. This lead to a trip to South Africa where Jocelyn earned a Yachtmaster Offshore certification, and went on to work in a combination of roles as a hostess/chef, crew and skipper on various sailing yachts/charters in Australia, Croatia, Italy, Greece, America, and the BVI’s. Jocelyn’s passions are to provide comfort and care for others by providing them with fresh, healthy (and sometimes indulgent!) meals, whilst being part of your adventure!

APA (Advance Provisioning Allowance) - all expenses related to fuel and water consumption, food, beverages and alcoholic drinks, port and canal fees, are extra. Customarily in crewed charters, the client pays a lump sum amount for all these extra charges up front. It goes without saying that if at the end of the charter APA is not exhausted, the remaining balance is returned to the client. On the other hand in case more expenses have occurred, the client is kindly requested to make up the balance on the spot.
Racing charter rates exclude all expenses. The client needs to pay the entry fee, berthing fees, all food and drink, a US$5,000 damage deposit.
