Captain: Wouter, Chef: Kelly & Stew/Deckhand: Anton
CAPTAIN: Wouter Hanekom
Hailing from South Africa, Wouter grew up going on weekend retreats with his family where watersports were the main activity. He can teach you a trick or two! His love of the water transitioned into sailing and he started sailing around the Mediterranean and Caribbean working for a large flotilla company.
He spent the last several years working as a sailing instructor where he had the pleasure to teach and share his love of sailing with others. Most recently in the last years he has sailed a catamaran from Cape Town to Grenada, delivered several yachts throughout the Caribbean, as well as chartered in The Bahamas and BVI. Holding both his RYA Yachtmaster Offshore ticket as well as being a fully Certified ASA instructor, Wouter welcomes the opportunity to share his knowledge about sailing with those onboard.
CHEF: Kelly Sargent
Kelly was first introduced to the yachting world in 2016 on a solo trip to Australia when she boarded her first charter as a guest in the Whitsunday Islands. The following year Kelly embarked on a couple more sailing trips to Croatia and the Caribbean, which became the inspiration for leaving her job as a designer in London and making the transition to yachting.
In 2019, Kelly started her adventure on the water cooking around Greece and Croatia and most recently worked in The Bahamas and BVI.
Coming from a family of cooks, Kelly has always enjoyed spending time in the kitchen so it was no surprise that after attending The Avenue Cookery School and Ashburton Cookery School she only strengthened her culinary skills and grew her passion for combining flavors and textures to create interesting dishes with a mediterranean flair. Kelly is also able to work with any dietary requirements and is able to tailor a menu specific for any guest.
Stew/Deckhand: Anton Van Geffen
Our stew/deckhand hailing from South Africa is new to the industry but determined to making a positive lasting impression on his team and guests. Anton has worked this past summer on several yachts ranging from 60' to 150' in size doing a variety of tasks making him a jack of all trades and a perfect complement to our team. He brings a lot of hospitality experience from silver service wedding venue support to bartending and waiting tables and will be certain to keep Moon Dragon looking its very best.
Anton is also a very experienced fisherman and would love to help guests set up a line and catch something exciting during the trip. He is very technology proficient and loves to fly drones and take and edit images so I'm sure he would love to get some great shots of our guests living their best lives which should be pretty easy on the fabulous Moon Dragon.
