15 crew members
Captain: Winston Joyce-Clarke, South African
Winston’s sailing career started at an early age off the coast of South Africa. A first Atlantic crossing in 1985 on a race from Cape Town to Uruguay provided the springboard for a profession that has taken him around the world a number of times since then. With years spent on yacht builds, yard project management, diving remote atolls, sport-fishing, paddle boarding, sailing and adventure cruising, it comes as no surprise that family sailing and ‘messing around on boats’ is very much part of his lifestyle. Winston enjoys sharing the experiences and knowledge he has gained with all and promotes a strong sense of team-ship on board.

His training began in two famous 3 stars Michelin restaurants in Belgium, namely ‘Hof Van Cleve’ and ‘Karmeliet’ followed by internships in the Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy and Japan. Jo is always accommodating to guests dietary needs and special requirements. His calm nature and catering organization makes the galley a pleasant oasis at the heart of the vessel. Mediterranean and Asian food is his speciality, but his focus is on healthy, tasty cuisine, as well as the crew’s welfare. In his spare time, he enjoys travelling, watersports, ski-ing and experimenting with new recipes and expanding his passion for his craft.
