Each of our cruises has a gay skipper, who will sail you on your adventure. Aboard the Adonis cruises, there is also a gay cook as the co-skipper. All skippers have many years of hands-on experience in sailing a ship like ours. With pleasure and good humour, they will take you along on your trip through whichever of these great environments you choose to sail. The skipper will also gladly introduce you to the basics of sailing technique. Let us introduce our wonderful team:
