Graham & Kristiann Gips
Captain & Chef
Graham is an engineer by training who spent a successful 10-year career in the oil and gas industry. He learned to sail on a 20ft racing dinghy with Kristiann as crew. They raced weekly for several years, topped the local podium and earned the chance to compete internationally.
If you are new to sailing, Graham would love to teach you how much fun it can be to helm and tune the sails. He knows the islands well and can craft an itinerary that suits everyone aboard. When the anchor is set each evening, Graham turns his attention to crafting cocktails to your taste.
From 2011-2015, Kristiann ran a succ...

An absolutely magical week aboard Allende - December 2019
Thank you so much for an absolutely magical week aboard Allende. Your wonderful hospitality makes us feel like home. Everything from sailing to Anegada, riding a Moke, snorkeling, checking out North Sound, chilling at Jost, jumping off the Willy T is a vacation dreams are made of. We will miss you and the wonderful meals and cannot wait to celebrate our 5th anniversary with you next year.
This has been a perfect vacation. Your boat is beautiful and your hospitality perfect. Every meal was delicious! We loved the itinerary--great stops for snorkeling, going shore, outings and sleeping. And Friday was the icing on the cake. What a great dog. He made the week complete.
Until next time,
The Kerrigan Family
I really appreciate your professionalism and eye for safety. You are an excellent Captain and allowed Kelly and I to truly relax even with the young ones aboard. Thank you for sharing your home with us this week and your beautiful backyard and pool!
You are the real deal--cooking, scheduling and crewing. Watching you and Graham work together is inspirational. Thank ...
EPIC! - April 2019
"People use the word “Epic” far too liberally, but this adventure was truly EPIC! We sailed over 100 nautical miles, tacking this way and that. Exploring reefs that few have explored and walking on beaches that even fewer have walked. We ate like royalty and partied with pirates. This experience will be hard to rival and will be celebrated for the rest of time. A thousand thank-yous for this magic...
Dear Friday, thank you for extending your hospitality to us for this past week. We'll miss your cuddles and floppy ears greatly.
Your parents were awesome! The food, the cocktails and the company were 5-star. This trip was like sailing with friends. Tell them we thank them from the bottom of our hearts. Your dad is super-smart. We learned a lot about sailing and his love for the community, the...
We can't thank you enough for the most incredible family vacation ever!
Every day was the perfect mix of action-packed adventure, relaxing and enjoying the most delicious meals, snacks and desserts! You are the perfect team: the engineering skills, incredible geology and marine life knowledge, culinary magic and the best dispositions for managing new personalities. It will be very hard to return to road trips and museums for this group--we will plan to be back for ano...
