Flotilla Leaders

Capt. Jean and “Admiral” Mila have been organizing sailing flotillas with American Sailing since 2009 and have introduced many sailors and non-sailors to fascinating destinations in the Mediterranean and Seychelles. They know the sailing waters and show participants places that many tourists do not know. They put a very heavy emphasis on safety while ensuring that all participants go home with fun and unforgettable vacation memories.

Jean, a native of Belgium, lives with Mila, his Peruvian-born wife, in Florida. He holds a USCG 100T Master’s license and is qualified to teach ASA 101, 103, 104, 105, 114, and 118. Together they run Whitecaps Sailing, an ASA sailing school in Punta Gorda, Florida.

Testimonials
I have had the pleasure of sailing with Med Sailing Adventures twice in Croatia and in Greece! Both times have been an incredible experience. Both Mila and Jean have the unique skill of bringing people of all ages and experience level together to create an amazing experience no matter where you are in the world. They encouraged me to learn to sail and even get certified to make this a life long sport. There’s nothing quite like it and I feel very safe and secure with Med Sailing Adventures trips knowing I will have the time of my life. Thank you Jean and Mila!

We just finished a week sailing with Jean and Mila! They were absolutely wonderful and took us to some amazing places in Croatia and Montenegro! I highly recommend sailing with them. We had some great laughs and created some incredible lifelong memories. Bravo Jean and Mila…

We went with Jean and Mila to Croatia on our first “Flotilla” several years ago. It was a superbly orchestrated event. The sailing was outstanding and the ports were spectacular. The trip gave some independence but was “group” enough for the novice Cruiser too! Jean was great “tour guide’ for the trip. We returned with Jean and Mila to Mallorca with the whole family, this trip too was outstanding! The culture, the food, The sailing!

After listening to Jean’s presentation about sailing in Croatia at Strictly Sail Chicago, I was sold! My instincts did not fail me. The trip to Croatia was so fantastic that we signed up for the flotilla in Spain a few years later. With their vast experience and knowledge of Mediterranean sailing, Jean and Mila lead groups of both novice and skilled sailors to explore beautiful islands and enjoy the culture and gastronomy that each destination offers. We are looking forward to many more trips with Med Sailing Adventures!
