Immensely proud to be amongst the few female superyacht captains, Kathy learned her trade at a very early age. Her father has been huge influence in her life and his passion for sailing surrounded and inspired her formative years when they sailed together in Cape Town and on the Vaal dam in Johannesburg.

Engineer - GonçaloDomingues
Gonçalo was born in South Africa to Portuguese parents. He spent most of his life growing up inland where he loved playing sports such as tennis, water polo and swimming. However he would relish holidays to the seaside and has always been fascinated with boats. After school Gonçalo studied Sport Management and entered the corporate race but he would find himself unsatisfied with the normal day-to-day life and felt a big void that just could not be fulfilled. His inspiration to work on yachts came about when a family friend would visit, telling tales of his life and adventures sailing around the world. Gonçalo would get a feeling of joy and passion upon hearing these tales and quickly decided to follow this feeling inside. Goncalo has worked on yachts for the past 5 years and has never looked back. His passion lies in the engine room where he is extremely fascinated with how boat systems work but he also loves being outside feeling the wind in the sails.
