“Bodhisattva is any person who takes up a course in his or her life
that moves in the direction of Buddha/Enlightenment.”
Jannas ( pronounced Yan-nas) and Carolina come with experience in the region and industry, bringing a fresh vibrance to the yacht Bodhisattva. Jannas has always been free to roam, starting young on motorcycles in the outskirts of the cities of South Africa. He brings his adventurous nature and down to earth attitude in a friendly and relaxed manner. He grew into the technical industry for many years and decided he was looking for change. He became more creative building custom artisanal coffee machines in the Design Capital of Cape Town. It was here that he excelled and began to explore his love for the sea. Kite-boarding already, it wasn’t long before he decided to follow his heart, and he began his life in sailing, bringing his strong attributes with him and hasn’t looked back. You will know his passion for great coffee, kite-boarding, long distance sailing and adventure motorcycling with an ever evolving relationship with nature and the art of Zen that brings things together.

Carolina was raised in South Africa by Argentine parents, making her an true hybrid of Latin passion and African rhythm, blended. She explored life to the max from a very young age. Starting out in restaurants, to event management, tourism, adventure guiding in South Africa, courses on wine and tasting life! Carolina moved to Cape Town at 20 and there she learnt to rock climb, canyon, surf and her sailing journey began. She always loved people and the natural outdoors. It wasn’t long before she set sail, off to cross the oceans of the world. On her travels she experienced all types of cuisine and cultures, and she was inspired by the diet/health relationship around the world. Having always worked in tourism and hospitality, Carolina dived into food and health to expand her skill set and fell in love with artisanal home-made goods and quickly qualified with her Super Yacht Culinary course, to bring her love for food and inspiration into the galley. Her fave-moto’s on food – “Good Food creates Good Mood,” “Don’t live to eat, but, Eat to Live!”
Together they bring a wealth of sporty, friendly, relaxed and adventurous dynamics and sail you away through the islands.
