Akasha's Summer Crew

Captain Oswaldo Cruz & Chef Briar Smith #1405-20557 ©DdV@1cyc.com 2016

Captain Oswaldo Cruz & Chef Briar Smith +2 Crew

Oswaldo (41) and Briar (39) look forward to welcoming you aboard luxury catamaran AKASHA. You will find them to be professional in their roles, friendly in their manner and entertaining with their diverse cultural backgrounds and rich life experience.

Oswaldo (Mexican) fell in love with the water during his time in the Mexican Navy. After his service he spent ten years owning and developing a specialist dive centre in which he took Mexico’s elite on dive tours around the world. For several years he worked on different shores including Canada, Egypt and the Mediterranean. Oswaldo completed his RYA Yacht-master training in the challenging waters around the UK, and in 2009 after moving to the British Virgin Islands he met Briar. They have been working side-by-side ever since.

Originating from New Zealand, Briar left to travel the world in her early 20's, visiting a variety of countries. This led her to discover a passion for food & cooking. She trained as a travel agent and worked in the UK for several years, a computer programmer in the USA for 2 years, and as an avid volunteer worker she has spent time in Israel and the Galapagos.

In between various jobs & travels Briar developed her culinary skills which she has complimented with a number of training courses at Ashburton Culinary School, UK, as well as advanced training at Gastronomicom (France) a 1 Michelin star International training Academy. This training, her love for food of all cultures and her past experience in the galley has her effortlessly delivering a variety of cuisines with amazingly full flavors. All dishes are presented with attention to detail and elegance.

Combine Oswald’s rich knowledge of the Islands with his witty sense of humor, and Briar’s enthusiasm for food and people and you’ll find an excellent Captain & Chef. From ensuring you are served your favorite dessert to tailoring the itinerary to meet all your preferences Oswaldo and Briar know that it is the small details that count in ensuring you have the most wonderful vacation.

Introducing Deckhand Jos and Stewardess Julia
Jos Smart (24) is from the beautiful Lake District in England. He spent most of his younger years on the water windsurfing, sailing and kayaking. Whilst studying Architecture & Environmental Design at University, he raced competitively at both windsurfing and sailing.
Jos worked five summers at the infamous high wind resort of Vassiliki, Greece, teaching water sports at an advanced level to people of all ages and nationalities. A trained swimming instructor and lifeguard, he loves sharing his passion for sailing and the water with Akasha’s guests.
Julia Taylor (27) from Surrey, England, has worked within hospitality for over ten years between restaurants, hotel barges and ski chalets. She also holds a diploma in holistic massage.
Julia’s experience and training within the hospitality industry have allowed her to travel through Europe and to the Caribbean, following her passions for windsurfing & sailing. A qualified schoolteacher, Julia has a kind and gentle nature and is wonderful with children.
Prior to joining the Akasha team Jos and Julia worked together in France running ski chalets and five star hotel barges. They look forward to welcoming AKASHA’s guests and showing them a wonderful time.
