FLOW's professional crew is Captain Roland and First Mate/Chef Vanessa, both vibrant and energetic, hailing from Cape Town, South Africa. They have known each other for 21 years and have been married for the last 5 years. Both have sailed in and around the Caribbean since 2004 and travelled the world extensively.

Previously, Captain Roland has worked in the corporate environment as a General Manager. In between, he followed his passion for the sea by obtaining his RYA Yacht Master Off-shore License delivering yachts professionally, doing (amongst others) twelve trans-atlantic crossings accumulating over 100.000 nautical miles. In addition, Roland is a PADI Dive Master/Rescue Diver with thousands of dives to his credit and also a qualified electrician. His other passions are kite surfing, cycling and fishing.

Vanessa qualified as a fashion designer, but soon discovered that catering is where her passion lies. Prior to being a deli and coffee shop owner in the heart of prestigious London for four years, she spent many years in the restaurant industry all over the world, from South Africa to Honduras to Europe. With this experience she will make sure that your expectations will be exceeded.

Growing up in South Africa has taught Vanessa to appreciate and indulge in numerous outdoor activities, whether it be hiking, skiing, river rafting, kayaking or scuba diving to name a few. Vanessa is also a qualified PADI Dive Master/Rescue Diver.

Roland and Vanessa look forward to greeting you onboard FLOW and ensuring a vacation of a lifetime!
