Avid sailor commencing at 8 years old, competing in many overseas regattas at the highest levels. In 2013, after my first blue water deliveries, I established a company operating as a bosun, maintaining and looking after a variety of vessels. I then progressed to completing my Yachtmaster. Since this, I have been employed on sailing yachts, progressing up the ranks with my last role being a captain on a Lagoon 620 for over 2 years. I have been very fortunate to have worked on yachts with world-wide programs, giving me a good knowledge of unusual cruising waters such as the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, Vanuatu, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.

I am a qualified, experienced and professional Skipper, Deckhand and PADI open water scuba dive instructor. Having completed an 18 month cadetship I am looking for my next position as Skipper/Deckhand/Scuba dive instructor on board a private or charter yacht. During my time in the cadetship I mastered a 62′ Lagoon Luxury Sail catamaran. I have completed a boat delivery from Indonesia to Hong Kong as well as a non-stop ocean passage from Indonesia to Australia. I have extensive knowledge and experience in large tender driving, house keeping, watch-keeping and deck maintenance. Additionally I was the lead Dive Master and assistant instructor for all charters and courses done while I was based in Indonesia. Since 2020 I’ve been locked in South Africa due to the pandemic. I’ve been keeping myself busy managing and expanding my surf school business. Keeping myself updated with Scuba dive courses and regulations as this is one of the surf schools services we provide. My aim is to progress myself on a bigger vessel with bigger crew and bigger challenges.
