Hi Guys! I’m Captain Thomas. Everyone calls me Tommo. I was born and raised along the beautiful East coast of South Africa. The ocean has really been a place where I have found the best in myself. I’ve surfed my whole life and competed in Skim boarding, eventually being introduced to sailing through my uncle. I then got my captain’s ticket after high school and traveled 2/3rds around the world on a 70ft schooner with 8 crew, 5 of which were from PNG! Thoroughly bitten by the sailing bug, I then moved onto a catamaran helping as a 3rd to run 10 pax dive charters for a company called Trade Winds for a year.
My proven ability gave me the opportunity to become the captain running charter yachts. Looking for new challenges I moved over to bigger motor yachts and big sailing yachts as Mate and Bosun chartering all over the Caribbean. I’ve always had a huge passion to meet new people and experience the best of what the world has to offer. My team and I look forward to meeting you and showing you the best charter, we have to offer.
I am a real small-town girl with big girl dreams. Growing up in one of South Africa’s smaller towns, entertainment was limited and opportunities few. However, for an inquisitive and imaginative young mind, possibilities abounded. Seaside holidays especially, fed my imagination and settled my soul. A deep affinity for the ocean developed – it’s a feeling of coming home, the sheer vastness humbles me, along with a peacefulness that cannot be reproduced elsewhere.
As a child baking was my introduction to the galley. Later, as a student, I practiced my cooking skills on my, sometimes unsuspecting, friends. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by food; the flavor profiles, presentation, and the sheer sensory experience of a dish. When I realized that nothing was holding me back, I took the leap of faith and decided to live my dream to be a Chef on a yacht in the Caribbean.
As a chef, I have found that I’m unafraid and adaptable to trying various cuisines. My charter experience has enhanced my ability in cooking for many types of eating preferences. I am also lucky to be able to continue to learn and try new things every chance I get. I’m an industry professional with qualifications such as a Super Yacht Culinary Course, Health and Safety Certificate, and my Divemaster qualification.
My zest for life and spirit of adventure – both in and out the galley – keeps me motivated and propels me towards the luxurious world of charters, cruises, and maritime cuisine.
Ford spent the first 10 years of his childhood living in Bermuda, where he found his passion for sailing, water sports, and fishing at an early age. He then moved to Houston where he continued sailing in regattas in Galveston Bay. He also competed in various fishing tournaments inshore and offshore where he has homed in his fishing abilities. Ford went to Louisiana State University upon completing high school, where he studied and received a Business Management degree. After college, Ford decided to follow his true passion and joined the yachting industry.
He has logged over 10,000 nautical miles throughout his career working on various Motor Yachts in the Mediterranean and Caribbean. Ford takes great pride in his Texas Barbeque and Tex-Mex cooking skills and would be thrilled to serve the guests traditional Texas-style meals. Ford will make certain that every holiday spent aboard Nomada is nothing less than perfect.
