Captain: Don Fung Fook
CAPTAIN DON FUNG FOOK
Don hails from New Amsterdam, Guyana, a town on the eastern bank of the Berbice River, just four miles upriver from the Atlantic Ocean. He grew up on the water, working and playing with his two sisters, brother and Dad on their 40-foot motorboat. Boating is in his blood. As a teenager Don moved to British Virgin Islands and landed a job with a company in public relations. However, he had a seafarer’s heart. When he was offered the opportunity to work on a superyacht he didn’t think twice, and he has been a happy mariner ever since.
Don has sailed extensively throughout the Caribbean. He holds 200-ton Yachtmaster certification and 100 BVI ton Local Yachtmaster. His favorite yachting destinations are the British Virgin Islands for the phenomenal island hopping, Bequia and St. Lucia, Grenadines, for the beauty, serenity, great winds and amazing marine life. Don also loves sailing the East Coast of the US, with which he is intimately familiar having worked as an Engineer on a yacht in the region.
Charter guests on S/Y BLUE STAR describe Don as easy going, fun, patient and reliable. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of the Caribbean and knows how to customize a charter itinerary per guest preferences. He lives by the credo, “live every day to the fullest”, which is why his goal is to make every day on charter extraordinary.
CHEF ROMA STOPFORTH
Roma is South African, from the east coast in a place called Kwa Zulu Natal, translated - "the Kingdom of the Zulu!
Cooking has always been a great passion and something she loves. She has owned her own restaurants in South Africa for many years, created and designed menus for family restaurants and fine dining restaurants and for opening Tapas restaurants as well.
She took a leap of faith and desire to travel 7 years ago and moved to the beautiful Caribbean to explore new experiences and of course to chef on charter yachts, which she has found very fulfilling. She loves that she is able to design food especially for her guests on board. Her years of experience has given her the training and ability to cook almost any style of food requested and always interpret them to incorporate them into local fresh offerings. As she spent more time traveling the Caribbean she learned much of the beauty in the islands is beneath the water, so she completed her PADI dive masters a few years ago and is a frequent diver. Traveling and meeting new people is a very important part of her life in yachting and being a charter chef allows her to combine all these things and be grateful and fully enjoy the lifestyle she has chosen..
Roma loves to entertain and has a wonderful sense of humor she combines with a strong work ethic, always looking to give her guests a vacation to remember and share their rich experience of being on a BLUE STAR sailing yacht charter with her.
