Captain: Raphael Marshall (UK)
Chef/First Mate: Amber Colle (South Africa/New Zealand)

Captain: Raphael Marshall
London born, Raph grew up dinghy sailing from a tender age in UK waters but it wasn’t until 2012 that his career in sailing was truly launched. He partook in the Oyster round-the-world rally that took him from Mallorca, Spain all the way to Thailand, via the gems of the Pacific Ocean. It was this trip that caused him to fall in love with all things Ocean and he promptly obtained his RYA Yachtmaster. During this time, he also acquired his bachelor’s degree at the University of Leeds but the pull of getting paid to do something he loved was too strong and he returned to a life on the Ocean. To date he has completed 4 Atlantic Crossings, 1 Pacific crossing and over 100 charters, so as well as being a fun, friendly and easy-going addition to your group, know you’ll be in extremely safe and experienced hands too.
