Your hosts aboard Emily Morgan are British husband and wife team Anna and Bones Black. Together they have sailed over 80,000 miles aboard Emily Morgan, including 10 Atlantic crossings and a circumnavigation. They love showing guests the best of the Caribbean, including a few secret spots.
Both Anna and Bones have sailed from an incredibly young age. Anna’s first sailing experience was at 18 months old. Bones cut his teeth in the notorious Bristol Channel. They are both experienced sailing instructors equally happy cruising deserted islands or racing round the cans and love to impart their wealth of knowledge to a willing audience.
Bones has a passion for imparting his love of sailing to people of all ages. He ran a training centre for many years teaching sail and power and has a natural talent for entertaining children. Bones is an RYA/MCA commercially endorsed Offshore Yachtmaster. Having maintained his own boats from an early age and with a background in aviation, Bones turned his hand to successfully running his own boat repair business. This ensures that Emily Morgan is always very well maintained.
Anna has sailed both yachts and dinghies all her life, growing up on the Hamble River and gaining an RYA dinghy instructors’ qualification at the age of 18. She is an RYA/MCA commercially endorsed Ocean Yachtmaster and did her first Atlantic crossing in 2004. She inherited a love of cooking from her mother and has a culinary repertoire spanning the globe, with an emphasis on using fresh, local ingredients.
