KALIKOBASS II - Crew Rotation
KALIKOBASS II has a great crew, and has decided to do a 3-months rotation with captain and stewardess that will start in March when Matthew and Katie take over their rotation from Ross and Bridget.

The owner was aboard with them for 13 days, and he thinks you will be equally pleased with them as with Ross and Bridget.

Both couples are very enthusiastic, the rotation avoids "burn out", and gives time ashore for both couples.

Captain Matthew “Kippa” Satchwell has a world of experience handling yachts. He has worked KALIKOBASS II on more than one occasion. He completed crossing from Antibes to St. Martin and two week charter with the owner in the Caribbean, both as relief Captain. During the 2009 St Barth’s he was the crew boss and stayed aboard for the Atlantic crossing from Antigua to Antibes via the Azores. He then filled in as relief Captain for a one-month yard period and was responsible for the refit in its entirety.

Along with many other yachts he has sailed upon, he gained much of his experience aboard S/Y Sumurun – 94ft Fife. Sumurun is one of the finest classics, but to keep her so takes a lot of love, care and hard work, for eighteen months of his life that is what he gave her. He learned the fine arts of varnishing and attention to detail. She taught him that pride in one’s work is a massive advantage that can be beaten by few other personal attributes.

Stewardess Katie French says “During my time aboard yachts I have learnt to be a hard working and determined individual, always looking to better my performance with a keen and sharp eye for detail. Cooking is my true passion in life and it brings me great pleasure to share my talent with others. Through my own experience I have learnt to interact well with a broad spectrum of people and have found a way to provide an excellent standard of service to all of them.”
