Nothing Would Happen Without the Right People


Mark


Mark has been involved with boats since childhood. He started sailing with his family in Portland Harbour in Dorset, UK and his interest in sailing became a lifelong passion. He studied at the International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft, worked on boatbuilding projects in Elba, Italy and Maine and became an RYA Yachtmaster. He discovered Tall Ship sailing with the Jubilee Sailing Trust and worked on the build of ‘Tenacious’ – the largest wooden ship to be built in the 20th century – in Southampton. After crossing the Atlantic in 1998 and working as a Charter Captain, he made Grenada his home. He became – with Anita – the owner and operator of Island Dreams in 2003.

Anita


Anita hails from Leamington Spa in the UK, and was working in Cirencester when she met Mark sailing with the Jubilee Sailing Trust. In 1998 she left her land-locked existence and joined Mark crossing the Atlantic aboard their boat ‘Rachel Kathryn’. They explored the Caribbean, and after a period running a charter yacht, they settled on their favourite Caribbean island Grenada. Anita and Mark live in Woburn on the South Coast with their two sons age 11 and 12. Anita is currently President of the Marine and Yachting Association of Grenada, representing the yachting industry in Grenada – boatyards, marinas, service companies and chandleries. She is also Grenada’s Honorary Local Representative for the Cruising Association.
