Cassie and Mike are a young, fun loving couple who have a passion for travel, people and adventure. Their love for meeting new people and exploring new places has now brought them to the Caribbean.
Mike always had a love for water sports. While studying in Cape Town his interest in sailboats evolved. After finishing his degree, Mike began his yachting career as Deckhand on a 45 day passage from Cape Town to St Maarten. This experience had him hooked and he proceeded to work on different boats around the world. After obtaining his RYA Yachtmaster Offshore (for both motor and sail boats), he skippered 2 boats simultaneously in the Med. Sailing boats and the adventures that ensue is what drives Mike's passion for the ocean. He holds RYA Yachtmaster Ocean and AEC Engineering Certification.
Cassie grew up in a warm beach town on the East Coast of South Africa. Being part of a large, food-loving family meant she learnt the value of quality time whilst preparing and sharing meals early on in life. Since then she has completed various courses to further her passion for fresh, delicious and wholesome cooking. As a keen adventurer above and below water, Cassie believes that the freedom of sailing is the best food for the soul.
Cassie and Mike look forward to having you aboard Sayang and showing you the best that the Caribbean has to offer.
