Laurent grew up in Paris, France. Urban life did not deter this water baby, who learned to swim and sail a Laser 420 as a child, and to scuba dive at the age of 12, with level three qualifications at 16 years old. He moved to Switzerland when he was 22 years old, purchased a Laser 2, and spent all his free time trimming the sails on Lake Geneva.
Laurent graduated college with a degree in economics and enjoyed a long career in the Swiss private banking industry as a stock exchange trader and operations specialist. In addition to his job as a banker, he co-owned a dive shop and school. Laurent is a high-energy individual that thrives on keeping busy, so he also played bass and guitar in a local band. Laurent is a qualified PADI Dive Instructor.
In 2015, Laurent and his wife Astrid decided it was time for a life change. They bought a catamaran and set off to sail the Mediterranean Sea. They skimmed past Gibraltar in 2016, spent two months in the Canary Islands and three months in the Cap Verde Islands before crossing the Atlantic. It was love at first sight when they reached the Caribbean, and they’ve decided to stay for quite a while.
Laurent is an expert Captain who enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for Caribbean sailing with his guests. His motto: living your dream is always better than dreaming your life. Charter ISOLABLUE with Laurent and Astrid. Isn’t it time to live your dream?
Chef Astrid Geslin
Astrid had an enchanting childhood. She grew up with her brother and sister close to Luzern, in the heart of Switzerland, near the Alps and next to the Lake of Lucerne. Nestled in this picture-postcard landscape was her parents’ restaurant. Even as a very young child, Astrid loved to help with the cooking. Growing up cooking, serving and eating fine food proved a joyful inspiration. However, whether they be lakes or seas, water has always been her passion: sailing, diving, windsurfing, and swimming. Astrid is a qualified PADI Dive Master.
For over 20 years, Astrid worked in Geneva, Switzerland as a Human Resources executive. One of the great benefits was the extensive, international travel the job required to start-up offices in Zürich, Paris, Milan and elsewhere. In between these working adventures, she and husband Laurent spent as much time as possible sailing their boat across the waters of Lake Geneva. Astrid obtained Sailing Certification for Lakes, then passed the Swiss Certificate of Competence for Ocean Yachting. It was a perfect time to sail to new horizons.
Astrid is always happy to receive guests and share moments of discovery and joy. “Every charter is a rewarding, new, enriching experience made of encounters, good humor and fun,” says Astrid. “I speak fluent French, English and German, some Italian and Spanish. I try to welcome our guests in their own language and make them feel at home. I’m passionate about fine food from all over the world. My recipes are inspired from Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, but always with a French touch.”
While Astrid’s cooking consistently earns rave reviews, guests needn’t worry about gaining a couple of extra pounds. Astrid enjoys leading a workout, from on-deck yoga to a lap around the yacht, to a go on the water toys. And fun is always her leading motivator.
