YACHT CREW

Captain: Gabriel Griñan Garcia

Having grown up in Alicante, a Spanish city on the Mediterranean that hosts the Volvo Ocean Race, Gabriel was always interested in sailing and the delights of the sea however when younger he focused his career on land; having a long and successful career in hospitality as well as owning and running several popular entertainment venues, ranging from jazz clubs to nightclubs and organising large scale events and concerts. It was during this time that his passion for sailing developed and by 2003 he had completed his skipper course and changed his course of career.

His first work as captain saw him work as a private charter exclusively in the Mediterranean, from the Balearic islands to Gibraltar and then later two years in the Canary islands. One of his first solely owned boats was a 38 foot mono hull which he used to cross the Atlantic in 2009 and returned to Europe the following year. This was a fantastic return voyage and one which has been repeated many times since. From 2009 Gabriel wanted to broaden his experience and has been sailing Caribbean waters doing charters. Now knowing these waters and its treasures so well, Gabriel loves to share his knowledge and combined with his professionalism, skill and personable style means a unique and unforgettably good experience.

Chef / Mate: René Wiggill (37)Chef / Mate: René Wiggill

Gabriel and Svetlana,
Thank you so much for sharing FRENK with us this past week, We feel so lucky to have never planned anything more than a few hours in advance, and to never have more than “two choices”, and always end up in the most other worldly places, doing the most fun, relaxing things. Being able to remake ourselves from the decision process and 100% relax was such a luxury.
We all spend so much time together home in San Francisco, but you created an environment in this week where the four of us could all be kids together - enjoying incredible food, playing games, and exploring a new place. 
That is something we never get in San Francisco and gave us such special memories to take back with us. Aside from the boat and food and amazing activities, we can’t leave out the fact that the two of you as human being are so wonderful, and simply spending time learning your stories soaking up your life philosophies (“why not?” and “ you can live many lives” will stay with us for a long time) made the week unforgettable .
We weren’t kidding when we said we would follow you wherever you take the FRENK , so please keep in touch so we can reunite on some other ocean! And please know that you have friends in San Francisco who would love to see you ( and maybe see some live music with you) if you ever make it out to California!
With so much love and gratitude,

Grace, Danny, Deanna, and Jason.
