FLAME Two Guests, Four Guests, Six Guests
If you ask Barbara or Wayne Elsworth what their earliest memory is, it would certainly involve boating. They both grew up on the shores of the Hudson River, only 150 miles apart. Coincidentally, their families summered at the same Adirondack lake, just on opposite shores! While in Great Exuma visiting his parents winter home, Wayne´s father taught him to spear fish, Bahamian style. He is an avid hunter and can be counted on to bring home fresh fish, conch or lobster during your vacation! In 1987 Barbara Elsworth traveled to Antigua for Sailing Race Week, accepted a job delivering a sailboat to England and has never looked back. She met Wayne and shortly there after they began working together and have been together ever since. Classical French cuisine was the daily fare as Barbara grew up and she draws on that training to develop a lighter French and Italian inspired style. Naturally, she specializes in seafood, using only the freshest of ingredients, which Wayne provides. If desserts make your day, watch out! Barbara has a sweet tooth and can be counted on to go overboard. From time to time Barbara and Wayne mistakenly claim ownership of Flame. Although the real owner is Jacob, the cat. He is a new addition, the heir to the beloved late Joshua. Jacob has quickly discovered that he loves chartering. Their guests shower him with presents and attention and he is required to do nothing more than sleep and look cute. For a complete list of rates and availability.
