Captain: Igor Labzhinskiy
Chef/First Mate: Annica Blok
Igor was born in Europe and developed his passion for the ocean sailing in Mediterranean, Adriatic and Black Sea dreaming of one day sailing in the Caribbean.
He grew up in a circus family that took him to all parts of the world finally settling in Las Vegas with Cirque du Soleil. His desire to sail and adventurous spirit facilitated a career change, motivating him to build his first boat on the Gulf of Mexico and venture to the Caribbean. He fell in love with the beautiful Caribbean islands, its deep history and vibrant culture and has made it his home.
Annica is a world traveler who followed her passion for the ocean to create an adventurous life off the beaten path. Along the way she has taught and motivated many people to share her love of kiteboarding! She has extensive knowledge of the kite spots in the Grenadines and together they will ensure you enjoy as much time on the water as possible.
Annica’s European style, fresh and delicious cooking, is combined with all the flavors of the tropical belt : Mexican, Asian, Indian, Pacific and of course Caribbean dishes grace her menu. Filling and healthy food to energize everyone on board. She enjoys the challenges of cooking in a boat’s galley, and is happy to accommodate special diets where possible.
Igor and Annica are energetic, super active individuals waiting to share their love of kiteboarding, adventure, sailing (amongst other loves) with you, whether it be in the Virgin Islands or The Grenadines and any where in-between.
Get ready for a truly memorable, action packed vacation!
