Meet The Crew!
Hey there, I'm Brooke, a water baby born and raised in the breathtaking oceans of South Africa. Growing up surrounded by the wild beauty of our seas, I stumbled upon a passion that would shape my life – sailing. At just 16, I snagged my Day Skippers, setting the course for my journey into the world of yachting.
Fueled by an insatiable thirst for adventure, I sailed far beyond my familiar shores, eventually finding myself at the helm. In 2017, fresh out of high school, I set sail for the Mediterranean – the French Riviera, Amalfi Coast, Monaco, and Sicily became my playground, and every wave taught me something new. The Caribbean beckoned in 2019, where I worked as a deck/stew. But as fate would have it, the challenges of Covid brought me back to where it all began – South Africa.
Turning adversity into an opportunity, I decided to seize the moment and pursue my Captain's License. Since then, my journey has been nothing short of epic. I found love, crossed the vast Atlantic, became a certified Divemaster with hundreds of dives logged, and now, I'm living the dream as the captain of my own yacht.
As a certified Yachtmaster with thousands of miles under my belt, my confidence comes from the wealth of experiences I've gained. Now, at the helm of Cashmere, I'm inviting you to join me on this captivating journey. With beautiful beaches, sensational sailing, and dazzling diving all within reach, your experience on board Cashmere is not just a trip – it's a story waiting to be written. Get ready for an adventure led by a fearless captain, where every wave is a chapter in the tale of the sea. 🌊⚓✨
Hey there, I'm Kylie, your Chef/First Mate, and my journey from Johannesburg, South Africa, to the high seas is nothing short of an adventure. After studying Fine Arts at UCT, I took a detour into the world of video production with a leading cruise line company during what was supposed to be a "gap" year.
Little did I know, this journey would lead me to discover my true passion – the service industry and making genuine connections with people. Extending my gap year turned into years of exploration across more than seventy countries, where I delved into diverse culinary encounters, solidifying my love for creating food.
Fueled by my love for the ocean and its mysteries, it was only natural for me to pursue my dream in the marine industry. Drawing on my background in illustrating and art, I found the perfect harmony in combining my love for cooking with the magic of the sea. Mega yachts became my canvas, allowing me to indulge in my passion for food and provide a more personalized experience for guests.
In the galley, I draw inspiration from all my travels and a deep appreciation for healthy food. Get ready for dishes that are simple, delicious, and boast bold, sometimes exotic, flavor combinations that will leave your taste buds dancing. When I'm not whipping up culinary delights, you'll find me embracing my other loves – Yoga, Scuba Diving, fishing, and indulging in films.
I'm all about going above and beyond to make each charter an unforgettable experience – a perfect blend of ocean wonders and palate-pleasing moments. Join me on this culinary journey that's not just about food; it's about creating memories that linger long after the voyage ends. 🍽️🌊✨
