Kevyn Keth-Walther (Captain)
Melissa Geyer (Chef)
Tammy Meiring (Stew)

Combined, Captain Kevyn and Chef Melissa have 12 years of yachting experience.
Kevyn was born in South Africa and has always had a deep love of the ocean. As a young boy, he learnt to sail Hobie Cats and Lasers and loved to surf and dive.

After school, he spent some time in the military and then become regional bar manager for a chain of high-end hotels.

In 2016 he decided to pursue his passion for sailing and worked his way up to being a Captain.

Melissa was born in South Africa and from a young age, found her love of food and gardening.
She was always in the kitchen or out in the garden where she learned the concept of "food to table", growing her families own food. Her father was an avid fisherman and she enjoyed accompanying him on his fishing trips. Naturally, a career on the ocean, making food, became a calling.

In 2014, she started her maritime career on cruise ships as a photographer, and in 2018, started her
career on yachts as a chef.
Her interests include diving, sea bird watching (ornithology) and furthering her knowledge in the art of coastal foraging.

In 2018, Kevyn and Melissa met each other in Thailand working on a 100ft sailing yacht and have been together ever since then working on 52ft, 60ft and 70ft sailing catamarans as the sole crew.

Together they have become scuba dive masters, travelled to many places exploring this beautiful planet and continue to learn as much as they can along the way.

Tammy is Zimbabwean born and raised. As a young child she spent most school vacations in the 'bush' at Chirundu or on the water of Lake Kariba - always outdoors and active be it in the sand, water or up a tree. In later years she would spend at least every second weekend out of the city and knew that town/office life was not for her.

She chose the yachting profession which suits her desire to be outdoors and to interact with people from all walks of life. She is delighted to have the best of both.

Kevyn, Melissa and Tammy look forward to hosting and "wowing" their guests on the beautiful Laysan this coming season.
