Meet the Zingara Catamaran crew: Captain Lee Adams & Chef Nadine Myers Adams
Mate Kieran & Stewardess Michelle
Captain Lee’s interest in the Maritime Industry was installed in him from the earliest age possible, owing to his grandfather being an Admiral of the Port Elizabeth Navy.
While at a young age he took part in bay racing and lending a hand at the local yacht club. His passion for sailing grew and after school and much thought, Lee took to the oceans on a recreational professional side as opposed to the Navy.
He joined a crew and raced across the Atlantic, where he took part in regattas in Antigua and St Maarten. In the USA he was able to establish himself as a valuable crew member aboard a classic Schooner that circumnavigated the globe, and after completing his maritime studies he was fortunate to take over as skipper and gained more experience in the engineering department.
Lee is an active and enthusiastic person, he enjoys all water sports. The experiences he has gained through his travels along with a jovial personality creates a pleasant atmosphere which is enough to make any guest aboard feel right at home, ready to relax and enjoy themselves.
Chef Nadine grew up at Lake Zeekoevlei, right next to South Africa’s most stunning coastal city Cape Town. Sailing was a natural progression for Nadine who from an early age enjoyed dinghy sailing as an active member of the sailing club. Combining her love of people, passion for food together with a massage qualification inspired her in the direction of professional sailing. She joined a classic yacht in Newport, RI and spent 2 years sailing the east coast. Nadine has a passion for the ocean and a zeal for service which will leave her guests rejuvenated and inspired.
Deckhand Kieran is from the UK, his experience comes from previous roles world wide working as a dive instructor in many 5 Star resorts and liveaboard vessels. Starting from a young age Kieran sailed, kayaked and dived throughout the Mediterranean growing his passion for the ocean as well as learning valuable skills key to the successful running of a sailing charter. Running conservation camps in Fiji also taught Kieran the importance of a balanced marine ecosystem and he is happy to share with you his knowledge of corals, fish and other marine life.
Michelle is your stewardess aboard Zingara. She is an ocean girl coming from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A place where her passion for the ocean and underwater life grew throughout her upbringing. Working in 5 Star resorts in Puerto Vallarta as a dive master and photographer has allowed Michelle to follow her dreams of working by the ocean whilst working in a service industry.
Kieran and Michelle began working together in Mexico as Dive instructors and underwater photographers. It was here that a great working relationship was forged and they have continued to work successfully together in a variety of roles. Conducting a research project in the Turks & Caicos on humpback whales which resulted in record breaking encounters and unbelievable new data collected again showcased their talent. Once the whales left the Turks and Caicos Kieran and Michelle decided to head south and begin a new adventure in the British Virgin Islands.
They joined Zingara in early 2015 and now they combine their experience, passions and enthusiasm for water sports and diving aboard Zingara. Underwater photography is one of their main interests and in their free time they love to spend it capturing underwater life in photos and videos. Join them diving on Zingara to share the underwater world with them. They are both fluent in English and Spanish and are happy to converse in either and aspire to one day run they own yacht but in the meantime they’re working and gaining experience on their dream boat. Zingara is a great opportunity for them to serve to a high standard of hospitality as well as allowing them to sail, dive and be on the ocean.
