CAPTAIN BRIAN is a polymath; his expertise is wide-ranging. On board ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT he wears all the hats. Brian says, “I do everything on board; captain, cook, bartender, maid, plumber, engineer and diesel mechanic. I take care of everything, except musical entertainment, as unfortunately I can’t sing.” Not only does he do everything, he does it all extremely well. And, what Brian lacks in musical aptitude, he overwhelmingly compensates for in warmth, charm and humor.
Brian grew up spending all his time on the ocean off Long Beach, California. In addition to swimming, surfing, fishing, and sailing, he played water polo, was a competitive swimmer, and a summer lifeguard. He taught sailing in the Boy Scouts. (He’s an Eagle Scout, only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank.) He is always available to help those who have little experience in the water. Guests aboard ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT keen to try snorkeling, paddle boarding, or take a turn at the helm, will delight in his gentle, patient instruction.
Brian says that he fell in love with boating as a child. His lifelong dream of sailing around the world began in elementary school. However, after achieving a degree in Criminal Justice he went into Law Enforcement, first on the streets of Los Angeles County, and later in the Denver metro area. He is expertly qualified as a first responder, in First Aid/CPR, and basic life support. When he had earned his retirement from the force, it was finally time to realize his dream. He sold everything, obtained a USCG Captain’s license, and immediately set sail.
Aboard ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT, Brian shares the beauty and privilege of living life on a luxury catamaran in the Caribbean. There’s fishing, sunsets, dining on deck, swimming and water sports, touring, restaurants and beach bars. Brian is an expert mariner and a really friendly, laid-back guy who is always smiling!! Who says dreams don’t come true?
ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT IS CAPTAIN ONLY, HOWEVER....
Brian will be joined by Anjelica as stewardess should charterers want two crew aboard (from 1st December 2021)!
ANGELICA SAUPE grew up in Aurora Colorado. Her friends describe her as friendly, caring, and meticulous. Having had a career in public safety as a 911 dispatcher, Angelica’s cool head and thinking always shine through. A consummate hostess, she enjoys making people feel welcome on board or wherever she goes!
Growing up with two brothers, Angelica’s always loved sports. It was when she started sailing with Brian 10 years ago that her other sporting pleasure, fishing, grew beyond the Colorado streams and into broader horizons. She has now been to, and has a passion for, many of the Caribbean Islands, but when asked, as a true nature lover, she will tell you “St. John is my favorite with it’s beautiful beaches and protected areas in the Virgin Islands National Park”. Sailing has also become a passion, although a quiet evening spent on board with camaraderie and few games is ideal for her calm nature. Having been on the front line much of her life, her motto is to never waste a day, you never know how many days you are going to get!
