Jason and Kate share a passion for life on the water, exploring and sailing, captivated by the oceans secrets. They love what they do and their enthusiasm is tangible. They welcome their guests with warmth and charm, and look forward to introducing you to the paradise they call home.
They are both commercially endorsed Yacht Masters, with over 45 000 nautical miles between the two of them and multiple Trans Atlantic crossings. They have been chartering and sailing together as captain and chef for the past 4 years, from Panama and Columbia to the Virgin Islands, Bahamas and east coast of the USA. Jason completed a delivery in 2013 from Cape Town, South Africa to the Caribbean, around the same time Kate came across aboard her parent's charter catamaran. Their yachting careers took them to Fort Lauderdale, where they met whilst working aboard Super Yachts. After working successfully aboard larger yachts, they decided it was time to branch out on their own in the Virgin Islands and are proud to be the team aboard Foxy Lady.
Jason grew up on the west coast of South Africa and is an avid sailor, surfer and free diver, with a love for fishing. He has a diverse set of interests, having studied at the Campus for Performing Arts prior to embarking on his yachting career, and plays classical piano and guitar. Jason is friendly, hardworking and goes above an beyond to make your trip a memorable one. Kate grew up cruising the Indian and Atlantic Oceans with her family, totaling 20 000 NM over six years, having left her home of South Africa at age 4. She has been in hospitality for the last 10 years and completed an International Hospitality Diploma with the Private Hotel School in Cape Town, before meeting Jason. She has worked as a chef on board yachts ever since and absolutely loves it! She aims to surprise and delight all her guests with culinary treats and has an good eye for detail, passion for cooking and curiosity for life.
Together, Jason and Kate hope to share with you their love of the Virgin Islands, fascination with its history and the open, happy generosity that has become synonymous with charting with them.
Kate and Jason are happy to announce an addition to their team, Tayla Willows, who will be joining them for the 2018/2019 season.
Tayla is a young, energetic South African who joins Foxy Lady fresh off her first season in the Mediterranean. With her imaginative, happy nature and love for all things aquatic, we are thrilled to have Tayla join us aboard Foxy Lady!
