Horizon 60 Power Cat “Sea Boss” (2012)Your Crew
Captain: Darrel Hearne Nationality: South Africa
Number of Crew: 2 Languages: English
Darrel Hearne grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he spent his time prowling the suburban jungles and raising his pet lion, Chaos. He also managed to actually finish school, and holds degrees in actuarial science, accounting and company law, as well as being a lieutenant in the South African National Defense Force.
In 2003 he decided to sell his house, quit the rat race, and go to sea. He moved to Cape Town in South Africa, to upgrade his sailing qualifications. After several months of sailing some of the roughest waters on the planet, he finished his qualifications, and holds a commercially-endorsed Royal Yachting Association Yachtmaster Ocean Skipper’s ticket. He has lived and sailed in the Caribbean for the past eight years, sailing on a variety of vessels in the charter industry (from beautiful and graceful Oyster sailboats, to a 118ft motor yacht). His absolute favourite, though, is Sea Boss. Because she’s awesome. He has extensive sailing experience throughout the Caribbean, and knows where to find the best bars on most islands; essential knowledge for a charter-boat captain. His sailing adventures have taken him from sailing the Eastern US coastline, all the way through the Caribbean chain, and down to Venezuela and Columbia. In his travels he has swum with dolphins, had a 40-foot humpback whale breach right next to (and almost land on) his boat, and sailed through a hurricane. He is keen to experience two of these three things again. He is an experienced and seasoned sailor, with over 30,000 nautical miles in his log book on multiple yacht types. Darrel is a keen water sports fan, and loves to water-ski, wakeboard, kite board and dive. He loves any excuse to get out on the water, and would be more than happy to get involved with any of the water-sport activities offered on the boat. Or any games, really – he is a child at heart and loves to play.
The Sea Boss team is very excited to welcome Jenn Hart as our new chef. Jenn grew up in Canada (in a well-known haunted house, no less!) but has strong family ties in the islands. She has been visiting the British Virgin Islands for the past twenty years, and took the leap two years ago to move here and become a local. This has worked out well for all concerned, as she brings on board her considerable experience and skill in the industry.
Jenn comes from a family of chefs, and has worked in the hospitality industry for many years. Her experience comes from both formal training and hands-on learning. In addition to her delicious culinary creations, she also boasts some mean mixologist skills, and there is an ongoing contest on board as to who mixes the best drinks – thus far Jenn’s Mai Thai leads the polls, with Darrel’s margarita a close second. Either way, the guests win.
Jenn is a versatile chef, and works closely with guests in coming up with a charter menu tailored to their preferences and any dietary restrictions. She is a big fan of using locally-grown foodstuffs, and tries as far as possible to incorporate a farm-to-table approach in her cooking. This includes a liaison with a local organic farmer while on charter and a meal designed to feature the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Jenn’s cuisine style is globally diverse, she has some amazing contacts and local suppliers down here that assist in this, and strives to incorporate healthy wholesome nutrition in her delicious meals.
A keen surfer, Jenn’s love of the water and the island life are a perfect fit for the charter lifestyle, and her warm and caring nature makes her everyone’s favorite crew member. She is a warm, genuine, friendly soul, and we are very happy to have her on board as part of our team.
Together, this experienced and knowledgeable crew will pamper you and ensure that your vacation is a truly memorable experience.
