Crew Profile

MEET THE CREW!!

Captain Simon and Chef Paula

Captain Simon: Simon was raised on the South coast of South Africa. Growing up at the sea lead to a childhood heavily involved with water sports. Simon is an avid scuba diver and free diver, although his first love has always been surfing. He played waterpolo for his high school and university and after graduating he worked as an airline pilot for 6 years in Africa and the Middle East.

A sailing holiday with friends in 2017 inspired him to obtain his Yachtmaster license. The sailing life then took ahold, and Simon has been working on boats ever since. Starting out as a deckhand on a 38 meter sail boat in France, Simon went on to become a lead skipper for a flotilla company in the Mediterranean, and has done two Atlantic crossings delivering new Leopard catamarans to their owners.

Simon also has a passion for cooking, hosting and entertaining, and is very excited to show you some amazing spots around the Caribbean

Chef Paula: Paula grew up in Gothenburg, Sweden, surrounded by food and cooking, with a dad who’s a chef and a mom with a huge passion for baking. Her own culinary journey started when she was 14 years old and got her her first job at the local french café in Gothenburg. Her culinary journey took her to some amazing places, where she met the most amazing people, gave her some irreplaceable experiences and of course, introduced her to the yachting industry.

In 2017 she applied for Quarterdeck Hostess Academy. Now 5 seasons later, she has developed a great experience in cooking and her presentation. All the time she has spent in the service industry has resulted in good service and finesse. Her way of working contributes to a successful and fun charter, her happy and caring personality makes you feel as if you were home at your grandmothers place! How can you say no to that?


**Captain Simon and chef Paula are both fully vaccinated**

Charter Yacht Southern Queen Guest Reviews

An absolutely heavenly week with Paula and Simon

An absolutely heavenly week with Paula and Simon. The boat is new and luxurious and gorgeous, and the USVIs are breathtaking. But more than the setting, what really blew us away, was our crew. Paula and Simon turned this into the trip of a lifetime. We were Paula’s first all-vegan charter but you would have thought she was a completely vegan chef. Every single meal was 5-star quality. We are so spoiled now. How will we ever eat well again without Paula?? Right off the bat, you get the sense that Simon is just one of those people who is extraordinarily capable and can do anything. There was a storm our first day with very rough seas but we weren’t concerned even for a second. We trusted his judgement and skill without hesitation right off the bat. He also taught our 12-yr-old daughters how to wakeboard and spent hours and hours pulling them around in the dinghy, and doing it enthusiastically! Paula’s trivia game on the final night was the best. We became friends with Simon and Paula and miss them a ton. We'd love to take another charter in the future but we all agreed, it has to be with them and no one else!

They really made our trip the BEST vacation!

We set sail May 29 - June 5, 2022 with Simon and Paula! Our trip was amazing! We’ve already recommended this vacation destination, sailing and the best crew to our family and friends! We came into the trip with no itinerary plans because we wanted to leave it up to our crew, and they did not disappoint! The food was amazing, as well as the sailing and all of the laughs we shared with Simon and Paula! We enjoyed them being on board with us and getting to know them. They really made our trip the BEST vacation! We would do this trip 100Xs again with them! We miss them already!

Thank you for all of the incredible hospitality, adventures and memories that will last forever!

Thank you for all of the incredible hospitality, adventures and memories that will last forever! We are so grateful for you two!

you both are incredible people inside and out

When people ask about this trip, my only answer is incredible! Everything was incredible... the boat, the people, the islands... However, what made it unforgettable was Paula + Simon! Paulas cooking was ridiculous! We never had a watch on, just navigated our days around the meal bell. Every meal was beautiful and well thought out. Thank you for making us feel like we were in your home. Simon, it didn’t matter what we asked, he did everything and anything with a smile. He is definitely the most competent sailor on these waters and made everything look easy! He would take the kids out tubing and wake boarding! Thank you both for everything, you both are incredible people inside and out."

What made our trip the greatest was by far our amazing crew

Beautiful boat, islands, water and skies. What made our trip the greatest was by far our amazing crew. Simon & Paula are truly the best. It takes a special kind of person to make a group feel like they can relax and take in all the fun and beauty the islands have to offer. Thank you Paula & Simon, you’re officially family now.

We would highly recommend the crew

We sailed with Simon and Paula and it was a fantastic trip and our crew were very accommodating and friendly. Simon was a great captain and made sure we had everything we needed to make our trip a success. Paula cooked some great meals and we couldn't wait to see what her next creation was going to be. We were never disappointed. We would highly recommend the crew. Well worth the cost.

This was the adventure of a lifetime with the most incredible chef + skipper

We lost track of time all week & were only reminded based on when Paulas amazing meals were served! And we never missed snack time. This was the adventure of a lifetime with the most incredible chef + skipper, Paula + Simon. The blue water, sunshine, amazing company & crew will leave lasting memories!

It was perfect in every way!!! Highly highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing week with Chef Paula and Captain Simon!!!! We couldn’t have imagined a better week. This was our second group trip to the islands, first was chartered out of BVI and this one with Ocean Yacht Club out of USVI. Trips of a lifetime, that is for sure. Paula’s cuisine was exceptional!!!! Every meal was breathtaking! I don’t know how we go on without Paula’s cooking. Simon planned every day and every stop perfectly for our group!! We appreciate the level of detail and thought that went into the itinerary. Simon nailed it!!!!!! So well thought out. Thank you both for a wonderful week in paradise. It was perfect in every way!!! Highly highly recommended!!!

incredibly impressed by the professionalism and hospitality

We sailed with Simon and Paula and we were incredibly impressed by the professionalism and hospitality! Both Simon and Paula went above and beyond their roles as Captain and Chef. They did not overlook a single detail to ensure we had a relaxing and enjoyable trip! Simon is an excellent captain as well as very friendly and personable- we felt like we were being hosted by dear friends! Paula’s meals are easily 5 star worthy both in taste and presentation!! We truly hope to sail with them again in the coming future!

thanks so very much for making this trip of a lifetime!

Thank you so much for an eventful and exciting trip! We appreciate all of the hard work and time you both put in to make this happen and to give our family an experience of a lifetime!

Simon and Paula were unbelievable

It was amazing, Simon and Paula were unbelievable. They made my husbands 50th birthday sail better than we could’ve imagined! The food, drinks and fun we had aboard Sunshine Baby 2 was above and beyond and we can’t wait to go back and sail with them again!
