SONGBIRD Crew Profile
Captain Name: Andy Kinnaird
Captain Nationality: British
Number of Crew: 3
Captain: Andy Kinnaird
An experienced and accomplished sailor with a healthy appetite for fun and adventure, Andy was first introduced to sailing on the River Clyde in Scotland at a young age and then started his professional sailing career on the Bow of a Volvo 60. Andy has been sailing commercially and competitively for over 20 years, skippering yachts in various races including multiple Rolex Fastnet campaigns. He has spent time cruising the North Atlantic and skippering a privately owned yacht around the Caribbean and North America. In 2010 Andy became an RYA Yachtmaster & Sea Survival Instructor and is thrilled to share his passion for sailing and safety at sea with some 200 students so far. Having enjoyed sailing around the Adriatic for a few years, he is excited to spend more time in this beautiful location with Yacht Songbird, exploring new areas and introducing his favourite places to Songbird’s guests.
When he’s not sailing, Andy can be found studying traditional forms of navigation, flying, horse riding and spending time with his children.
Chef: Sarah Weare
Languages: English (a little Spanish)
From an early age, Sarah has been passionate about food and entertaining; organising food-discovery dinner parties with friends, running the kitchen at her family’s pub and catering for local events and businesses. Although she decided to follow a career in luxury brand marketing, ultimately the call for food, travel and adventures at sea became too strong and in 2016 she decided to refocus to follow her passions. Sarah now travels extensively, always seeking out the local food culture, and cooks wherever possible at private villas, yoga retreats and of course at sea. Sarah is also passionate about fitness, nutrition and wellbeing, and she gained her yoga teacher training certificate in NYC in 2016. The food she makes reflects this as she enjoys preparing healthy, seasonal, well balanced and delicious meals with a flair for Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. Photography, music and travel writing are amongst Sarah’s other passions and creating fun experiences is never far from her mind. When she’s not sailing or cooking she’ll be happy to take a morning yoga stretch session or go exploring by SUP.
First Mate: Marko (Fosh) Foskula
Languages: Croatian, English
Born in the Dubrovnik region of Croatia into a family of hardworking and passionate seafarers, sailing is in Marko’s blood and he knows the waters and islands around the Croatian coast like the back of his hand. Aged just 15 Marko got his boat licence and took part in numerous regattas on the Adriatic, and despite earning a degree in telecommunications, sailing became his passion. He is a very competent and experienced sailor, skippering professionally for the last 8 years on charters in both Croatia and the Caribbean. Marko takes great pleasure in long passage sailing, which has taken him across the Atlantic 3 times. Aside from spending his time on a sailboat, Marko’s hobbies include windsurfing, fishing, snowboarding and traveling.
