Quincey and Mitchell, along with 6-year-old Siamese cat, Panda, run a sailing charter business in San Francisco. Both have grown up around the water and are always excited to share their passion for sailing and adventure with others.


Combining their love of sailing and nutrition, Mitchell and Quincey, otherwise known as Q+M Travels, aim to provide a holistic adventure to everyone who steps foot aboard their yacht, Esprit. Q+M Travels aim to provide amazing holidays to their guests while also educating them about sailing and nutrition, which they have dubbed ‘Holistic Adventure Travel’. Bringing adventure to the lives of friends, families and couples of all ages, Q+M Travels offer day sails, sunset sails, and multi-day adventures that give their guests a taste of the cruising life and eating well.

It took Quincey and Mitchell two years to find the perfect boat, finally setting their sights on Esprit, which, at the time, was located in Colon, Panama. Esprit is a Kelly Peterson 46’ blue-water cruiser, built for sailing all five of the world’s oceans. On February 21st, 2018 the couple finally stepped foot on Esprit, beginning their journey back to San Francisco from Panama one month later.

Esprit was the last Kelly Peterson ever made, originally built for its original owner to cruise in, as well as compete in premier yacht races, such as the Trans-Pacific, a race running from California to Hawaii, attracting entrants from all over the world.
