Captain Barend (Bertie) Chapman originally from Cape Town South Africa, graduated from university of UJ as a Engineering Metallurgist and later obtained his Production Management Diploma. He worked for De Beers in the Synthetic Diamond Division for some thirty years.
He has sailed, snorkeled and deep sea fished from the Mozambican coast, to Sodwana Bay and St Lucia, the coast of Natal South Africa, Port Alfred (Eastern Cape) and most of Western Cape. For the past six years he and his wife/First Mate Teresa have pursued their dream of owning their own Yacht and becoming full time sailors. Their circumnavigation started in December 2014 when they took part in a Governors Cup Yacht Race from Cape Town to St Helena. They cruised Brazil's coastline for six months, French Guyana river water ways and coastline for five months and thereafter sailed on to Grenada and Caribbean. They fell in love with USVI/BVI and decided to stay, they are now in their fourth charter season in the BVI and USVI.
First Mate Teresa Chapman, a Customer Service professional from Cape Town South Africa has shared Bertie's dream and can not wait to welcome you on board Outback. Teresa has the warmest heart and in no time you will feel at home and know that you will be taken great care of on your adventure. She loves to entertain and to prepare meals to each and every person's satisfaction. Her motto is to make you feel special, relaxed and to share the beauty that the BVI and USVI Islands have to offer.
