Crew Comments

Rosie and Adam met in Croatia whilst both working as Yacht Skippers, from here both their personal and professional relationships blossomed and they became the ultimate Crewed Yacht Team. 

Adam has been working in the yachting industry since 2015 as Captain and Yacht Team Manager in Croatia. Before this, he worked as a Watersports instructor on the beaches of the Mediterranean. Prior to moving to the BVI in 2019, he has combined his summers working on yachts with winters managing hotels and bars, this is where his love of cocktails has come from. In the Winter of 2018, he persuaded Rosie to do her first winter season running a high-end ski chalet together. 

After Rosie completed Yachtmaster offshore in 2017 she decided to take a few months out of her office job to work as a Yacht Captain, this was the moment she decided office life was not for her! Once she completed her season in Croatia, Rosie landed her first chef position in the French Alps at a high-end ski chalet along with Adam. Since then she has worked on various yachts and has completed professional Chef training at Ashburton Chefs Academy. During COVID times Rosie kept herself busy with a 16 week online pastry course and went on to write and publish her first cookbook app “Baking on Boats” 

Rosie and Adam joined the Moorings Crewed yacht team in 2019 and can’t wait to create unforgettable moments on the water with you on board Nauti But Nice! 

 

Testimonials

Best Crew ever on Nauti but Nice

My wife Lynette and our friends KB and Kimi went for a week's vacation on the moorings Nauti but Nice 50 ft catamaran with captain Adam and Captain chef Rosie. We had the most amazing time sailing with them. They were not just our crew but became our friends as we soon learned how fun they were when they engaged with us in not just conversation but games and laughter throughout the whole trip. Rosie was not just one of the captains but an amazing chef. As my background as a chef, I found her food wonderfully made, some of the best flavors and the most amazing presentations I have seen outside of a five-star restaurant. Adam, continued to snorkel with me as I am a diver and he took me to some of the most amazing spots and I got to free dive with him, hang out in the water, on the beach, and at some of the local restaurants. I couldn't imagine two better people to take us around the islands and we will be back again and encourage all of our friends and anybody reading this review to request the couple as they will not disappoint. I could continue writing here and go on for paragraph after paragraph on how great they were. I will leave you with this, the two are well matched, compliment each other and the moorings could not have two better people working for them. I would hire them on my private boat or in my restaurant before I would hire anybody else. Thank you so much Rosie and Adam for an amazing time and amazing vacation and may the spirit of the ocean continue to live through you.”

Sailing the Moorings with Captain Adam and Rosie

This was our first trip on anything like the Moorings and it exceeded all of our expectations! We were on a 7 day trip in the BVI and we had no idea what to expect staying on a boat! From the moment we were greeted by our Captain's Adam and Rosie we felt welcome and safe. Everyday the trip got better from their knowledge of the area and the boat to their stories about other experiences around the world! Adam and Rosie work so well together and Rosie's creations that come from the kitchen are out of this world! Morning, lunch or dinner she was so creative and the flavors were so creative and left us feeling like every meal was a 5 star meal. We were sad to have our trip come to an end we SO bonded with them but are thankful to have made new friends! We can't wait for our next trip with the Moorings and we can't wait to be back on a boat with Adam and Rosie to make more lifetime memories!”

Excellent Sailing Experience with Adam and Rosie (The Moorings)

Adam and Rosie were amazing and we had the best week of sailing, food and fun. The boat was gorgeous with tons of room for our group. The 3 meals each day were delicious and Rosie put so much thought into her meals. She even listened to us as we would talk about food and would surprise us with homemade chocolate chip cookies and burgers and fries. The other meals she prepared were decadent and we had more than enough food for everyone. Adam was an excellent Captain and provided us with tons of information about our sailing destinations and would entertain us at night with a map of where we traveled each day. They were fun and engaging and we have made new life long friends. We are already planning on another trip with them in 2023. Highly recommend sailing with them, you won't be disappointed.”

AMAZING SAILING AND DINING ON BOARD!!!

A week sailing through the BVI could not have been more perfect! We were lucky enough to get almost zero crowds in popular spots like the Baths and Jost Van Dyke, weather and places we went were absolutely amazing!! Also, we were super lucky and had the best crew on board, Rosie and Adam, they helped us even before we arrived answering questions and making sure they had all we needed. As a family, it was our second charter with Moorings and had really high expectations!! I must say, they managed to surprise us even in places we had already visited last time. Adam planned every sail, every stop and activities to perfection!! He also treated us to great cocktails everyday before sunset. And then Rosie's gourmet cooking was mindblowing!! Meals, snacks and desserts were all unique and presentations were picture perfect!! She made very creative combinations and had new ingredients for us to try every day. It was delightful to share our family vacation with such an amazing couple and team. They made us feel at home and safe all the time. A special thanks to them for making this family week so special.”

 

Best crew in the BVIs: Rosie and Adam!

As if sailing on a 50 foot catamaran along the BVIs was not amazing enough... Adam and Rosie managed to exceed our expectations (which were already high)!

 Theyre an excellent team, always offering how to get the best out of the day and planning ahead to make sure we were aligned with the agenda. They were very considerate of our needs and opinions - it was all very easy since day 1!

 The good vibes, willingness to always help, luxury cuisine by Rosie and Ninja Bartender Adam were the perfect combo...making our family trip not only incredible, but also a true pleasure.”
