Born in South Africa and growing up on the East coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, Rob has been a “water boy” his whole life. He is an accomplished sailor with over 30,000 sea miles under his belt on a range of vessels.
Worthy of mention was the family sailing adventure where Rob, Belinda and their 2 children embarked on a 4-year world cruise on their catamaran, Shayile. They cruised the East Coast of Africa, Indian Ocean, SE Asia, Indonesia, and Australia.
Rob has a passion for the ocean and loves water sports. He is a qualified surf life saver, pilot, advanced diver, and avid fisherman. He has a particular passion for salt water flyfishing. He loves to go out and hopefully return with something delicious to toss on the BBQ. Mountaineering is Rob's other passion, and he has hours of adventures on mountains spanning the globe. His epic adventure to Mt. Everest is worth listening to over a cocktail sundowner!
When Rob is not out skippering and entertaining, you will see him working in the galley with Belinda. Cocktails and the BBQ are part of Rob’s regime, and he knows the perfect stories to tell while you enjoy them!
Born and raised on the East Coast of South Africa, Belinda has spent her life close to the sea, camping, swimming, scuba diving and fishing as well as hiking and climbing the inland Drakensberg mountains.
She is a ‘people’s person’ and in addition to her culinary training, is also trained as a professional nurse, specializing in maternity.
Belinda is a generous and passionate cook who has been influenced by travel and time spent in many different countries. She is particularly fond of Asian cuisine, Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam, but also enjoys spicy Mexican, Indian and Mediterranean influences.
She loves to cook fish and seafood and pair it with local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. She enjoys bright and bold flavours, especially citrus notes which do well to compliment the Caribbean climate. Delicious cool and creamy desserts round off dinner and ensure full and satisfied guests!
Waking up to fresh morning coffee and watching the sun set with drinks and appetizers are the absolute essence of life aboard and she can’t wait to welcome you!

Captain Rob and Belinda-
As beautiful as the scenery was,
As fantastic as the food was,
Even though the beer was plentiful.
The rum punches and pina coladas were pretty good too.
The best part was the all the people on board the Belle Vie!
In the words of Jack Sparrow:
“Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate.”
Cheers to the next time!
Thanks for the trip of a lifetime, Rob. You and Belinda took such good care of us, it's hard settling back into our regular lives. We'll be back!

I know everyone who has a good captain thinks theirs is the best. I KNOW the captain on my boat is the number one captain for a charter. In his command we always felt safe and secure in his knowledge and handling of our sailboat. Always he greeted us with his warm smile and pleasant disposition. He never seemed rushed or bothered by all the needs of our family group of twenty. At the end of the charter we felt like we were leaving a dear friend. I cannot give him enough accolades! He was easy to talk to, always trying to serve his guests and accommodate them with any desire of their hearts.
Rob and his wife/chef Belinda are such a pleasant couple. They truly compliment each other and work well together. We were beyond blessed to have them as our crew. They made our trip enjoyable and pleasing. Rob never got upset with our active, over the top family. He continued to smile throughout our exploits. He was helpful and quick to meet our needs. I could go on and on about telling what a great captain he is. You will not be disappointed if you are fortunate enough to have him captain your sailboat!!! A Plus Plus!!

The yacht was absolutely spotless and beautiful. We were left wanting for nothing more. Everything we needed for the perfect vacation was available and in great working condition.
The crew was spectacular. They provided the highest level of service possible. Everything, from the amazing food to the fantastic guidance on where to go and what to do, was perfect. I truly can't imagine a better crew to work with.
The food was fantastic. It was delicious and the variety was great. Belinda really worked to understand our likes and dislikes and adjusted every meal to fit our needs perfectly. Since arriving home we've been craving Belinda's food!!
Rob was a fantastic captain. Not only did he work tirelessly to keep the yacht in perfect shape but he was also a great guide during the trip. He catered our itinerary around the needs of our entire group. Whether that was extreme amounts of snorkeling for some or extreme relaxation and bar hopping for others. We all got what we wanted out of our week long vacation of a lifetime!
JUNE 2022 - BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
This has been an extraordinary vacation thanks to you both. We have enjoyed every moment. Belle Vie was full of love, laughs and beautiful views. B's meals surpassed one another! The desserts were over the top! You made our anniversaries memorable. We could taste your anniversary cake was baked with love! A memory we will never forget. You will forever be out Queen B! Captain Rob thank you so much for guiding us without a worry in the world. AND making our men happy fishing. Each of you catered to our needs perfectly. We will miss you both and we hope to cross paths again.

There are not enough thank yous in the world for this trip. From Willie T's to the snorkeling and interesting interactions with dolphins. I had no idea what this trip had in store for us. The hospitality was superb, the rooms well-appointed, and the attention to detail unmatched. Most important, are the memories and new friends we made along the way (and the food!) Thank you for it all and best of luck on all of your future journeys.

THANK YOU for an amazing trip and the wonderful experiences.
We all had a blast and felt very blessed to have you be our hosts for the week. The food was amazing and the many stops between each meal were welcomed adventures. From jumping off Will T's, to meandering through the Baths, to New Years on Anegada...we all had a ball!! I can assure you this trip will be talked about for many, many years!
Thank you again for your hospitality and always offering to help make our trip 5 star!
MARCH 2022 - BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
We are a group of four couples who decided to charter a catamaran for a special vacation and birthday celebration. The Belle Vie and her crew, Rob and Belinda, far exceeded our expectations. The Belle Vie is fairly new and in excellent condition. It is clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for four couples and the crew.
Rob’s energy and enthusiasm, generosity, and good humor helped make every day an adventure. We loved the snorkeling, underwater scooters, wakeboarding, hikes, and the cuddle puddle. Our excursions to the baths, the bubbly pool, and the iconic places such as Willie T’s, the Soggy Dollar, Hendo’s Hideout, and Foxy’s were amazing. We loved our day on Anegada, where we toured on scooters and then did a two-hour excursion with Kelly’s Tours to snorkel at conch island and over the reefs and see the flamingos. Rob was always there to proactively suggest something fun or make us a cocktail.
Belinda is the best cook ever! The meals she made in the galley space were incredible. From breakfast through dinner, we enjoyed exquisitely prepared food from eggs and bacon with mimosas to burgers and fish tacos to pan-seared beef and salmon. Desserts included homemade tiramisu, custards with fruit, and an outstanding carrot cake!
Both Rob and Belinda were kind, patient, engaging, fun, and great conversationalists. We especially loved our sing-along night when they joined in to sing some of their favorite songs with us. They truly made this trip a once-in-a-lifetime experience we will all treasure for years to come! Thank you!

What a glorious time my family had sailing with you in the BVI’s! As we anticipate winter temps and probable frozen precip this evening, we are longing for Belle Vie, your hospitality and those warm, sunny islands!! I don’t think we can ever top the fun times and adventures we had with you. Thank you so much for giving all of us the trip of a lifetime. We had such fun!!!
Both of you were always right on hand to offer hospitality and adventures. What a fabulous array of delicious meals the “master chef” prepared. And the Captain was always spot on with a water toy or adventure. Indeed we were blessed to be on Belle Vie with the two of you, who made our trip so memorable.
NOVEMBER 2021 - BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
I want to first say that Rob and Belinda were absolutely amazing. The food and service were second to none. I feel as though they did everything in their power to make sure that we had the best experience we could have . . . and we did. That was all thanks to them. They are just two genuinely great people who we all enjoyed spending time with.
