CAP II Cap II if fully airconditioned Accommodating Two Guests - Eight Guests
It took Captain Keith Chipping working as a school teacher to learn the lesson that the call of the sea had a far greater appeal than the call of the classroom. Having a long standing interest in history and current affairs had led Keith into academic study that culminated in teacher training and work in English high schools trying to impart this passion on our future generations. Then sailing was discovered, along with the realization that his own passion for teaching was not as powerful as his passion for sailing. It was sailing in its purist form that led to this conversion - that is, dinghy sailing.Captain Keith and Chef Dina Instead of extolling the virtues of political participation Keith found himself, instead, describing the combination of art, science and physical endeavor which is needed to make a machine move through the water to the point where it only seemed sensible that he leave behind an established profession and move into the little known world of 'professional yachting'.
Mate/Stew - Dina Hickman hailed originally from Pennsylvania, USA, Dina has lived in Japan, the Philippines and the Cayman Islands. Her wonderful life as CAP II's Mate and qualified US Captain is further affirmation of her love of the sea. When she was a youngster she lived by a pearl farm near Kyoto, then on the beachfront in the Philippines. When her father's business took the family back to Pennsylvania some of the culture of those places remained. Dina is an endearing sort of creative genius. She rebuilt race car engines as a teenager, designed and produced jewelry, and remodeled houses. She drove across the Untied States to the Gemological Institute of America to experience the country and further her career as gemologist, goldsmith and appraiser. Conveniently, for someone imbued with a fascination for travel and cultures, her training as a jewelry designer took her to places as diverse and exotic as Florence, Italy and Brooklyn, New York. Dina left Antigua on a luxurious 31m motor yacht but jumped at the chance to cook on a racing yacht. As fate would have it, Keith was Mate on this yacht and they later began to search for a charter yacht to run together. Experience, determination and great team work lead them to accept the honor of restoring and running the incredible yacht CAP II. Her resurrection has been a labor of love and dedication with the reward of seeing this true sailing beauty shine!
CHEF - Freelance TBA (Italian Chef Diego Cerasi is often available for charters on Cap II)
