Jake was born and grew up on the North Norfolk Coast. 2020 is Jake’s 4th year in the industry and is delighted to be onboard Argentous this summer, it is also his 4th year in the Ionian so he knows the area very well and will take you to the best spots. Previous to
working on yachts he worked in the hospitality industry, chalet host, front of house, sous chef and restaurant service.
Jake takes great pride in his work and his primary concerns ae quality and safety as a yacht master and sailor. Working alongside Kat, they make a very happy crew who enjoy their job and care for each and everyone of their guests.
Kat grew up dinghy sailing in the summers but her real introduction to yachting was through racing whilst at the University of Manchester (sailing out of Liverpool). At first so used to racing her first experience of cruising yachts was a pleasant surprise.
From winter seasons in luxury ski chalets Kat loves making cakes, canapés and treats for afternoon tea. As a flotilla host these skills were transferred to the galley. Always looking for adventure Kat has studied in Canada, been to art school, worked in France, Greece and at a Summer Camp in the USA teaching Synchronised Swimming. She loves working abroad however not many places fuel her addiction to Wasabi Peas. Kat’s cooking and baking is always full of fun flavours and ideas that she is keen to share with friends.
Always the host, she loves entertaining and making everyone feel welcome.
