Captain Name: Peter Lech
Captain Nationality: USA
Number of Crew: 2
The first question that we get asked is who is the Captain? Most recently it’s been Peter but Jade has also had her hand at skippering and is happy to let Pete take the reins, for now. When you get down to it when one is acting Captain, the other is Co-captain.
Jade’s sailing repertoire spans along the Pacific Coast from Vancouver Island to Costa Rica and the Atlantic shores of New England and the Eastern Caribbean on any kind of sailing vessel from tuna fishing boats to tallships to Catamarans. Her preferred rig is her own 38ft Junk rigged schooner that is currently being outfitted for a circumnavigation.
Peter literally cut his teeth on his family’s Morgan 27 and Morgan 40 on the tempestuous waters of the Great Lakes. Racing several evenings a week and 3 day long cross lake marathons are common place still in the Lech family, placing repeatedly top of their class and best overall. He brings his ease at the helm and 14 years of management experience to execute smooth vessel operations.
Another pleasant surprise comes when you discover that not only can we sail but we also are experienced chefs. Both have spent years creating culinary delights for the rich and the famous including Hollywood starlets and the President of the United states.
Pete applies his classic french training to local exotic ingredients and as a Sommelier pairs them with the best wines from around the world. Jade’s influence stems from her asian-pacific up- brining with emphasis on fresh, health conscious plates never lacking in rich flavors and originality.
Combining thousands of sailing hours and two successful careers in high end service, it’s easy to conclude that with us as crew your yacht experience will be nothing less than world class.
