Captain Name: Dudley Snook
Captain Nationality: British
Number of Crew: 2
Dudley found his passion for sailing in Anglesey, Wales, where he spent the summers racing Lasers. After graduating from University with a degree in Politics, he decided to pursue a career as a captain. Dudley has work experience in the hospitality industry, including a stint working at a mountain lodge in the French Alps.
According to his passport, Dudley is an Englishman, but has spent most of his adult life living abroad. Dudley enjoys running, mountain-biking, skiing and rugby. He is Sam’s right-hand-man in the kitchen (a great pot-wash), and can make a killer Watermelon Margarita!
Sam spent five years sailing around the world with her family, and after a few years on dry-land, she heard the ocean’s call and found herself back on the high seas.
She left her Marketing career behind her in New Zealand, and became a yacht hostess. Sam’s creativity is now directed at food, and she is now a passionate chef; focusing on preparing healthy and delicious meals using fresh and locally sourced produce.
When she’s not in the galley, Sam enjoys swimming and scuba diving.
