|KALIKOBASS II - Crew Rotation|
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.
“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.
