Captain Nick Baxter

Originally from the small town of Ficksburg, South Africa; Nick grew up sailing Hobie Cats, fishing and diving. His love of the ocean, nature and wildlife has been a constant motivator to share the joys of the great outdoors; particularly the ocean, with others. From a young age Nick made the sea his home and passion. He is also an avid amateur photographer with a love of wildlife and underwater photography. A safe, fun loving and skilled RYA Yacht Master Ocean Certified Captain, Nick is a fantastic guide to both the skills of sailing and the beauty of what lies beneath the waves. Nick is also an expert SCUBA diver (Certified PADI Dive Instructor, Master Scuba Diver Trainer, Emergency First Response Instructor and Scuba Rescue Diver) with many specialties under his weight belt. He is both patient and extremely knowledgeable helping new divers feel at ease and ensuring an unforgettable experience.

First Mate & Chef Lucy Fletcher

Lucy - whose family hailed originally from Ireland - grew up in the heart of South Africa and has always had a passion for traveling. She learnt that the best way to travel was under sail! Before joining BR5 she has worked with Nick as a charter chef and First Mate for four years throughout the Caribbean, as well delivering yachts as a deckhand in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Lucy has a real passion for creating delicious dishes in the galley - and takes great care of all her guests needs. The foundations of her cookery come from the eclectic mixing pot that makes South Africa the rainbow nation - supplemented by her recent experiences as a yacht chef aboard sailing charters in the French West Indies. She loves trying new recipes and enjoys cooking internationally inspired cuisine and fosters a strong respect for the natural beauty in flavors and textures of the ingredients and products that are seasonally, locally available. Lucy is happy to meet any guests requirements and put smiles on their faces with her delightful culinary treats.

The right hosts can make all the difference on a cruising adventure and, together, Nick and Lucy make a winning combination. With Lucy's enthusiasm for exquisite food, Nick's expert sailing, watersports and SCUBA diving knowledge, and Best Revenge 5's superior quality, you will be hard-pressed to find a more fitting team.

Whether it's a quiet family get-away, or a lively group of friends, Lucy, Nick and BR5 (who we affectionately call "the third crew member") will transform your cruise into an unforgettable adventure. Note: Lucy can specialize her menus for any guest's requirements, including providing specific menus for any who are allergy sensitive and prefer "raw" or "vegan" cuisines.
