Deckhand/Steward: Josh Field
Josh was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa but moved to Botswana when he was just 3 years old. While he grew up in a landlocked country, he comes from a family of avid sailors, so he spent his weekends at the local lake and yacht club where he developed his sailing and water sports skills. He has spent years teaching people to kayak, windsurf, row and sail at this yacht club, even developing and coaching a rowing program for a local high school. This past couple of years, he has focused on acquiring the necessary maritime qualifications to turn his experience and love for sailing into a career. He looks forward to welcoming guests on board and sharing his passion for sailing, watersports, and having a good time.
