Captain: Jake Elsden-Powell
Jake was born and grew up on the North Norfolk Coast. 2020 is Jake’s 4th year in the industry and is delighted to be onboard Argentous this summer, it is also his 4th year in the Ionian so he knows the area very well and will take you to the best spots. Previous to
working on yachts he worked in the hospitality industry, chalet host, front of house, sous chef and restaurant service.
Jake takes great pride in his work and his primary concerns ae quality and safety as a yacht master and sailor. Working alongside Kat, they make a very happy crew who enjoy their job and care for each and everyone of their guests.
Kat grew up dinghy sailing in the summers but her real introduction to yachting was through racing whilst at the University of Manchester (sailing out of Liverpool). At first so used to racing her first experience of cruising yachts was a pleasant surprise.
From winter seasons in luxury ski chalets Kat loves making cakes, canapés and treats for afternoon tea. As a flotilla host these skills were transferred to the galley. Always looking for adventure Kat has studied in Canada, been to art school, worked in France, Greece and at a Summer Camp in the USA teaching Synchronised Swimming. She loves working abroad however not many places fuel her addiction to Wasabi Peas. Kat's cooking and baking is always full of fun flavours and ideas that she is keen to share with friends.
Always the host, she loves entertaining and making everyone feel welcome.
The boat is very confortable and it was always clean and in order. We did use some water sports equipment and the crew was always ready to help us in this subject. Nacho and Andrea are great. It was a pleasure to spend a week with them. The food was amazing, the service was fantastic and also was the hospitality. Nacho and Andrea made an excellent job being always at our service but giving us privacy when necessary. We did love the places we visited. It has been a great experience, just unforgettable. ‘
We had a wonderful holiday. It really was fantastic and we totally support everything dad said in his note. The boat was fabulous. It worked, was very luxurious, looked great and sailed beautifully. In fact we had it up at 11 knots between Meganisi and Ithaca on day 2 which was just great. And the waterskiing was great fun too and it was all helped by being in lots of lovely Greek bays. However I do reserve my greatest praise for Tim and Pippa. What a pair! They really made our holiday. Great company, superb sailors, the cooking was delicious, always on good form and generally just good fun to hang out with. They tackled everything with enthusiasm and energy.....even when the weather was pretty grim. But mostly they were brilliant with my dad. He was pretty unsteady and they had just the right mix of being firm about the challenges of being on the the boat and not being overbearing (which was our job!!). Hence dad's fulsome praise. We the children really appreciated their support in making sure he had a great time and looking after him - down the stairs, across the pasarelle, getting him coffees and taking him home on the last night, You are very lucky to have such an excellent team on the boat looking after your guests.
You dont need me to tell you that you are extremely fortunate to have them run your boat and look after the guests. Their experience in running a charter boat is very evident and they look after Argentous as though she was their own.
Charlies energy in making sure the girls got maximum enjoyment from the waters sports toys was unbounded and he is an excellent tutor on windsurfing and water skiing. As all four girls are water babies they loved being involved with mooring the boat and swimming the lines ashore.
If there was a Michelin star for on-board catering then Joy should have one. Whether it was breakfast, lunch or supper every meal was beautifully prepared with a different choice every day. We were all thoroughly spoilt and looked after to a fault.
As you might have gathered from the crew questionnaire Barbara and I have done a lot of sailing over the past 50-60 years and we very much enjoyed being on-board with Charlie and Joy and planing the itinerary each day. With their experience and knowledge of the area everybody got the maximum enjoyment from every minute of the trip.
I havent forgotten the boat which is extremely well equipped and very comfortable in every respect. A lot of thought had gone into fitting her out from the air con to the Williams tender and everything worked.
We will all remember the week with a lot of happy memories.
