Jamie & Thea Young
Captain Jamie was born in Zimbabwe and started out working life in the field of electrical engineering and building construction. After leaving Zimbabwe in 1984 with his wife Thea and their young children, they lived for 11 years in the beautiful wilds and outdoors of Botswana. Subsequently they spent 8 years in Cape Town and here Jamie started following his dream and with friends and family began recreational sailing around the unpredictable African wild East and West coasts and off Cape Town. After landing a job as a Projects Manager in the UK, he and Thea moved to the United Kingdom where they have lived for 10 years. It was in these waters Jamie decided that a 9 to 5 job was not for him and so decided to pursue a professional sailing career in the yachting industry and in the process has sailed the strong tidal waters of the Solent off Portsmouth and Southampton and up the West and East coast of UK, including cross channel sailing to the Channel Islands, France and the Brittany coasts. He now holds the RYA Yacht Master Certification. In addition to sailing the coasts of South Africa, the U.K., he has also sailed briefly in the Bahamas and the Caribbean islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Jamie's electrical engineering, building and managerial background contribute to his captain's skills, expert seamanship and in-depth understanding of the varied mechanical, electrical and digital systems aboard Yachts. Jamie also holds the PADI open water diving qualification and loves exploring the beauty below the waves...read more
Chef/mate Thea was born in South Africa and at a very young age moved to Zimbabwe, where she met and married Jamie. She pursued careers in retail merchandising, accounting and hospitality both in Africa and the UK. She has always loved cooking and whilst in Cape Town owned her own bistro. Thea loves sports and the outdoors, having played tennis and hockey at club level and enjoyed water skiing. Since moving to the UK, Thea took more interest in yachting, and immediately hopped on board with Jamie's decision to pursue a sailing career and rekindled her love for cooking by attending the renowned Ashburton School of Cookery in Devon, England where she did the Mediterranean and Fish and Seafood courses.
Jamie and Thea's life experiences in Africa and the United Kingdom combined with their sailing, world travel and gourmet cooking, and not forgetting the best BBQ's / South African 'Braai's', and their warm hospitality, will guarantee you the vacation of a lifetime, every time, aboard SIRIUS ESCAPE.
