They grew up together, in the Sub Tropical coast of KwaZulu Natal, and the ocean and watersports have always been a big part of their life. They traveled extensively meeting new people and making friends around the world, and enjoying the cultures and cuisines of the world, and decided that once they sold their National Transport Company, and the children had graduated and left home they would pursue a more relaxed lifestyle sharing their love of the ocean, water sports, traveling, meeting new people, enjoying their cultures and cuisines and making new friends.

Mike is a qualified RYA Yachtmaster with over 50,000 sea miles under his belt. Together they have sailed and explored the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

He is also a qualified Padi Dive Master, and will happily assist certified divers on planning their dives and accompany them as their guide. As an accomplished water-skier, and surfer he will soon have you up and riding on your water sports of choice. He is very competent in maintaining and running all aspects of his yacht. His warm and giving personality, love of life, sense of humor and honesty make him a great captain to sail with. His "generous" barman's skills and great tales will have guests laughing into the night. He's also a great DJ.

Lesley is a certified diver, and with 45000 sea miles logged is also proficient at the helm and in all crew aspects.
A great cook - who's skills in the galley will delight you. Her wonderful cuisine, reflects favored dishes from around world, varied and beautifully presented. A true Piscies, you'll find her in the water as as much as on it. She will happily take you on guided snorkeling safaris, pointing out all the varied corals and fish found in the beautiful Caribbean waters. She is a natural earth mother, who enjoys children, is fun, easy going, helpful and resourceful. She will happily play surrogate "granny" to the kids, keeping them entertained and happy while you enjoy a scuba dive or a visit to one of the fabulous beach bars or restaurants on the islands. From the moment you board Sail Away she will make you feel relaxed and at home, while making sure your every need is attended to. Mike and Lesley have been happily married for 40 years. Their friendship, respect and happiness together makes them a great team, and they look forward to giving you a holiday of a lifetime.

March 2021 guests on SAIL AWAY in the BVI wrote

We recently spent 10 days aboard Sail Away with Colleen and Peter Lauber. The experience from beginning to end was seamless and transporting. First, our charter broker arranged the charter and facilitated travel plans and navigating the BVI Covid restrictions/requirements. That was a great help! The BVI are VERY Covid safe by the way. Once you do the required paperwork and testing it is fabulous to be here. So don’t let that stop you from coming!! We met Colleen and Peter at the Cay, a short ride from the airport, and off we went. We had 4 days of on-boat quarantine and, really, who could complain about beautiful bays, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking etc?! After a day 4 test and subsequent test result we hit land for our first on shore activities. Colleen and Peter, our hosts on Sail Away, were EXCELLENT in every way. They are both highly experienced sailors and know every corner of (and almost everyone in) the BVI. They took incredible care of us from charting our trip, arranging activities, and preparing delicious meals. Colleen clearly did a ton of preparation to be able to prepare gourmet dishes with ease for a group that also included gluten free vegans. And they were funny, fun, and overall great to get to know. Oh and Sail Away is gorgeous. No need for me to say more - JUST GET HERE. Carla - New York, USA

Everyone was so nice – I would not change a thing!!! Really enjoyed our trip and HOPE to do it again. Best crew and chef!!! Our friends were so happy with the trip!!!

Guests aboard VACOA in early July, 2017, said

Just returned home from a fabulous family 7 day vacation aboard Vacoa. Our family consisted of 9 people ages 13, 14, 17, 18, 25, 27, 50, 59. Fun for everyone from the water activities, destinations, cocktails and the food, we could not have been happier! Captain Jason, Steward Lucy and Chef Louis, treated all of us with professionalism and enthusiasm. Every request was greeted with a smile. We can't wait to book our next trip aboard Vacoa! Thanks again for an incredible time! Jennifer Attaway

May/June guests on VACOA said:

This is the second time that we vacationed on the Vacoa with friends and we had another fabulous week with great weather in the BVI! The crew kept us busy with multiple destinations and activities daily; we loved Oil Nut Bay, Scrub Island, Bitter End and the remote bays where everyone had a blast with multiple water activities! Captain Jason did an unbelievable job keeping us very active while Chef Will was back in the kitchen preparing fantastic breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners! Lucy, the second mate, was a joy to be with, she made delicious tropical drinks, cleaned up after us and kept us entertained! A great time was had by all! Wendy M. Marco Island

January, 2017, VACOA guests said:

We chartered Vacoa in the BVI in January of 2017 and enjoyed every minute of it. The boat is a 620 Lagoon (our second trip on the same model) and I would not charter in the BVI on any other model of boat. The fact that the top deck can accommodate all 10 guests beats any other boat in its class. The boat is in great condition and the salon and state rooms are well appointed. Jason and Team did a wonderful job and the food blew away our expectations (which were high from our previous trip on another boat). I'd recommend getting off the boat for cocktails here and there but eating on board as none of the island restaurants can match the quality and presentation of the food. They had plenty of sports equipment on board -- everything from water skis to wakeboard, to kayaks, to paddle boards, etc.... Full service boat with fantastic crew -- perfect match. Charles G. Dallas

Charter July 02-09, Tortola-Tortola

Message for the broker : I have no words (which everyone will tell you is unusual for me J)! The guests had a fabulous time on VACOA. The comments keep coming. The crew was amazing and Christine was just incredible. We ate like kings all week. Claire and Xavier were so nice and wonderful. The vacation was amazing! We loved every minute of it....the best vacation ever. It was incredible! Im ready to look for next year. Call me!

Charter June 15th- 22th 2016, Tortola-Tortola

Comment from the broker: I just wanted to send you an email and tell you how proud I am of Xavier and his crew on VACOA! He is such a pleasure to work with. My clients had the best trip ever on board with them. Thank you for all your assistance!

Charter 17th to 24th of April 2016, Tortola-Tortola

This charter was by far the best I have been on to date...maybe it was the yacht? Maybe it was the crew? Both were amazing and better than expected. The yacht's condition was impeccable, the accommodations definitely met with our expectations, perhaps even better. We did not fully appreciate the upper deck of the yacht; I think we hung out there most of the time. We also did not realize we had a fourth crew member which was terrific! The crew was phenomenal. Xavier and Claire were so professional and accommodating to all of your wishes. Christine our chef was 5 star!! Every meal was delicious and special - what she was able to accomplish with such limited provisions was truly amazing. The final dinner our last night was a special treat - surprise Pirate Party!! Maxim was our 4th crew member and such a delight. He really took care of all of us...day or night!! The week went by so fast even though it was 7 days on a boat...we went to every location we wanted plus some. Xavier knew exactly when the best times would be for snorkeling, seeing turtles, exploring the Baths (when all of the people had left); he even knew how to keep us out of the stormy weather! We enjoyed hiking on the islands, tennis at two resorts, sailing at Bitter End and spa treatments on shore. They really did an amazing job keeping all of us happy.

Charter 19th to 26th of March 2016, Saint-Martin - Saint-Martin:

I just want to thank you for your advice and organization of my charter onboard VACOA during our Easter break.We had a fantastic tour onboard a great boat, run by a very professional, knowledgable and service minded crew. My family and I enjoyed every minute and we will certainly come back in not too distant future. I can easily recommend this boat with existing crew to anyone that want to have a time of their life experience. Thank you

Charter 24th to 31th of January 2016 - Tortola - Tortola

Just a quick check in after a most delightful week on the water with great friends and a fantastic crew! The chef Christine was also over the top on professional skills and food quality/presentation, and always pleasant and open to teaching us about her dishes and how they were prepared. As a business owner myself, I know it is important to get prompt and direct feedback and consider this a 100+ score, simply blew us away! It goes without saying that the captain and crew had our comfort and hospitality in mind 24/7; and clearly a crack sailing team.

Charter 08th to 18th of December 2015, St Vincent-Grenada

Well done! The Vacoa and crew were perfect for our team of six non-adventurers. I have already recommended them to other friends. I know we will be in touch again next year.

Charter 25th of November - 2nd of December 2015 Tortola-Tortola

My clients had a wonderful time aboard VACOA. Thank you very much to you and your excellent crew for an excellent charter!

Charter 9th -16th May 2015 - St Marteen to St Barth

Estimado Xavier, Te envo como recuerdo dos fotos del grupo de navegantes argentinos, de la semana del 9-5 al 16-5-15. Hemos pasado una semana muy linda y nos hemos sentido muy satisfechos por las atenciones de toda la tripulacin. Un cordial saludo para los tres y espero nos podamos volver a re-encontrar. Cordialmente.

Charter 19th-26th April 2015 - St Marteen

Feedback from the broker : I finally got ahold of M. XXX to get a report on their sailing vacation in St Martin with Xavier and Clare and Christine on VACOA and he has only superlatives for the boat, crew and experience.He was ecstatic about the food, the service, Xaviers energy and flexibility with doing water sports with the kids, playing DJ and helping guide the itinerary choices. They said they would charter that boat again with that crew.

Charter 5 -13 April 15 - Tortola

Our charter has been sensational! Xavier is very skilled and knowledgeable, first mate Claire has been wonderful, and chef Manuela extraordinary, fabulous cuisine. All of the crew work well together. Susan and I speak French with them, some Italian with Manuela, but they are all fluent in English. They have been particularly patient and helpful with the grandchildren. The boat itself is super, but the setup of the bathrooms could be better, which has nothing to do with the crew, of course. I am glad that we held out for VACOA .

Charter Sicily Islands 23-31th of August 2015

I have just talked with the client, she is plenty satisfied with their cruise on board of MAITAS. The captain Marco and his crew has work very hard to offer to all the party an unforgettable cruise. They have appreciated their professionalism, the discretion , the long experience and the excellent cousin . I want thank all the Team , I will give only super positive feedback on the boat and I hope to have soon other clients.
