CAPTAIN BASTIAN & CHEF/MATE SARAI
Growing up in South Africa, Bastian was always surrounded by nature. He would find creative ways to indulge in it: climbing trees, hiking mountains, surfing, or scuba diving – anything that would bring him closer to the elements. After years of going back to the sea, it was only natural for him to continue on this path and become a skipper.
Qualifying for his license on the South African waters, his training in a challenging ocean prepared him for whatever may come. On his first voyage, he crossed the Atlantic Ocean. This was preceded by more voyages, in which he quickly advanced positions and was then working as a Captain. Chartering yachts for potential buyers in Cape Town, Bastian found a way to bring his two loves together: sailing the ocean, and bringing people closer to nature. Even on land, people turn to him to take them out exploring and camping. Chartering proved to be a beautiful extension of that.
Bastian is truly passionate about the sea, nature, and the connection we have to it; and he always seems to know the perfect equation for a divine sunset. For him, providing a good and memorable experience on the sea is a duty just as much as it is a pleasure.
Sarai was raised in Italy, Germany, and Israel – always on the coast. Being the daughter of a skipper, her family had a close relationship with yachts. They regularly went sailing in the Mediterranean, exploring all of the different coastlines the Med has to offer, and that was where she fell in love with the sea. Discovering this at a young age she took on competitive windsurfing and started scuba diving, along with photography as a way to indulge in the present and the beauty of nature.
Living in the Middle East and Italy gave her an appreciation for the Mediterranean and Italian cuisines. At home, the dining table has always been a place where everyone gathers and time seems to stop. Seeing food as an art that has the power to connect people, she ventured into hospitality during and after high school, working in different catering companies. At the age of 19, she enrolled in the IDF and served for 4 years as a Commanding Officer. During her service, she found profound meaning in human companionship and the relationships we build with each other. This understanding grew stronger through her travels in Africa, getting to know a variety of cultures, and being inspired by her experiences there.
Sarai is passionate about the beauty in the simplicity of life. She believes food has the potential to elevate any experience to new heights. By combining fresh ingredients, and accentuating natural flavors, her cooking is designed to bring those at the table closer together.
