Sunbeat Yachting

Ian Grant, Director

Ian is a keen British sailor and can be spotted racing for pleasure on a Saturday afternoon.  Having sailed for over 25 years, including a couple of ocean passages and owning sailboats himself from 16 to 47 feet, his in-depth knowledge of boat systems is immense.

Ian is also highly qualified.  His certifications include RYA Yachtmaster Instructor, BoatMaster 1, Power boat level 2 Instructor Engine maintenance tutor and an ASA (American Sailing Association)  Instructor up to level ASA 105. This experience of both sailing and power boats meants that each boat is maintained to a high level; whether in our charter fleet or privately owned and managed by us.  With many years of skippering all sizes of boats in the Caribbean, his knowledge will prove invaluable to your charter experience.

Calvin Donaldson

Calvin, who is also known as ‘Bebe’ is a lovely Antiguan who can get things done. Bebe has been around boats for most of his life and is a great organizer, ensuring his team have everything ready on the boats, (including local hand sanitizers at his insistence).

Tony Sayer

Tony offers race tuition on his Beneteau First 42 “Augustine”.  This involves understanding all points of race sailing; from start practice, to tactics and sail trim.  It’s a no-frills type of vacation culminating with a yacht club race on the Saturday with Jolly Harbour Yacht Club.  Tony’s race pedigree includes St Martin’s Heineken Regatta 25 times, Valentine’s and Antigua Sailing Week 25 times, the Rorc 600 4 times plus BVI and Guadeloupe local regatta’s.

Grahame is our back office, ticker, sanity checker, and also a keen sailor. He owns a Bavaria 42 which he sails every week in our local yacht club events.

Our Location

We are based in Jolly Harbour Marina on the beautiful west coast of Antigua.  We are just a 25 minute taxi ride from V C Bird International Airport on Antigua.  Our location means that we are perfectly placed for longer sailing trips to Guadeloupe (French Caribbean), Dominica, and for longer charters further south towards St Lucia.
