William Garnier – Captain/Dive Instructor and Kim Stoklasa – Chef/Mate
William was born into a family of naval tradition and was taken to sea before he could see over the steering wheel. This early introduction to sailing meant a career on the high seas was always likely, and so it has proved as he gained RYA Yachtmaster accreditation and has skippered boats in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Kite-boarding, diving, kayaking, windsurfing, surfing are just a few of the activities William enjoys. A sailing trip solo around the Atlantic in a rather small boat is testament to his adventurous spirit. You can ask him about that or just read the book he wrote! His love of the sea is infectious and you will enjoy catching his relaxed island vibe. He loves to share his knowledge of the lesser known anchorages, private coves, and secluded beaches and will take you to visit and explore all the unique locations the Caribbean has to offer. As a PADI Dive Instructor he delights in certifying new divers, giving instruction and leading explorations into the tranquil underwater world of stunning reefs and wrecks.
Creative and fun-loving by nature, Kim’s skills in the galley reflect her personality. She delights in mixing healthy fresh local produce with international dishes learnt from a life
well travelled. On top of her German Baccalaureate, Kim has training in all aspects of food safety, hygiene and many allergies. She is expert at creating the perfect atmosphere for
guests on-board Invictus. Naturally at ease with people, Kim has managed high-end private and corporate events in cosmopolitan London, and worked with people of all ages as a sports instructor and animal behaviourist. Clearly not one to be type-cast, Kim is qualified on powerboats and sailing boats and can be relied upon to drive the dinghy for
wake-boarding, and is always on-hand to capture all your special vacation moments on film. Easy going and thoughtful, William and Kim encourage every guest to make full use of all A3 has to offer, and look forward to welcoming you aboard.
