CAPTAIN LEON AND MATE/STEW WENDY VENTER
Leon and Wendy Venter are South African and Zimbabwe born. Both are outgoing and have a love for sailing and water sports, deciding to leave their corporate and business world behind in South Africa to pursue their love for the outdoors in the stunning Caribbean.
In South Africa, Leon had his own engineering business for thirty years plus, doing on-site machining for the sugar, petroleum, paper and marine industries in South Africa and other African countries. Leon has been sailing recreationally since a young boy and has always had a passion for the sea and diving.
Wendy was involved in the corporate world of Mercedes Benz, being on the financial side for several years and with the Barlows Group previously. Her love for the outdoors, sailing since a young girl with her family in Zimbabwe and then South Africa, as well as her love for diving, made their decision to re-locate to the Caribbean, an easy one.
Wendy and Leon have sailed extensively up the East African coastline on their own catamaran and have raced several Vasco Da Gama yacht races, from Maputo in Mozambique to Durban in South Africa. They have sailed their own catamaran from Durban on the east coast of Africa, around the tip of Africa, up to Walvis Bay, Namibia, crossing the southern Atlantic Ocean to St. Helena and Ascension. Upwards to Suriname in South America and upwards to the bottom of the Caribbean chain, to Trinidad. Leon has his Master of Yachts Offshore to 200 tons Captain’s license as well as his South African Coastal Skippers License. Leon is a PADI certified Instructor of several years and Wendy has her Small Powerboat and Rib MCA certification. Both he and Wendy have been in the charter industry in the Caribbean since 2011, working from St. Vincent and the Grenadines to St. Martin and then the British Virgin Islands. Leon and Wendy have sailed various yachts from the British Virgin islands to Florida and back to the Islands, loving the adventures the trips had to offer.
Leon and Wendy look forward to having you on board the luxurious Vacoa, to pampering you and tempting your taste buds with the delights from the galley, indulging you in your favourite water sport, whether it be diving and re-living the history of the Virgin Islands, snorkeling with the abundance of sea life, testing your skills at paddle boarding, kayaking and exploring the coastline with your partner or just simply relaxing on the trampolines, soaking in the sun.
