Crew profile

Captain: Pieter Gerber (South African)
Chef/First Mate: Theresa Jacobs (South African)

Pieter has been involved in sailing for the past 22 years. His sailing skills were honed sailing along the east and west coasts of South Africa, notorious for its unpredictable weather. He spent most of his time racing his own sailing yacht in around the cans as well as offshore regattas from his home base at Royal Cape Yacht Club in Cape Town. He has experience in sailing both monohulls and catamarans on extended passages, including a passage with Theresa across the Atlantic Ocean. All of these events has provided him with a wealth of stories and knowledge which he loves to share with guests. Although he has sailed most of the Windward Islands, the British Virgin Islands is their favorite place to be. He is looking forward to showing your clients the beauty of the islands and experience what they have to offer.

Theresa’s style is offering fresh, nutritious food, while enjoying tropical island cuisine. Her attention to detail and complimentary fuss free spin on old favourites will have you asking for the recipe in no time! Theresa has travelled the world on her time working on the Queen Elizabeth II Cruise Ship and thus incorporates all different cultures and cuisines to her menu. She is comfortable with all dietary needs and will tailor menus for all requirements.

They have been sailing together for the past 15 years, sharing their passion for adventure and the sea. They have sailed the whole South African coastline including Cape Point, notorious for its stormy weather. They crossed the Atlantic Ocean on their 44ft monohull on an unforgettable journey. Since then, they have spent most of this time exploring the Caribbean islands. Their experiences have helped them to make people, even first-time charter guests, feel at ease and at home on their boat helping everyone relax and make the most of their time on board.

They look forward to welcoming all walks of life onboard!
