Rienet van der Merwe is exactly the kind of skipper you want on your charter!
After successfully completing her 14 Week Fast Track Yachtmaster Ocean Course with
Sail Due South she landed a crew position on board a delivery through one of our contacts.
Rienet sailed across the Atlantic Ocean on an adventure of a life-time!
Once that was successfully completed we hooked her up with our Partners; Quarterdeck, and she
spent the Med Season working as a skipper on board some of the biggest Flotillas in the world!
Well done Rienet! We know you will have many more adventures and opportunities in the

Al Schaeffer was in the "Ballies vs Lighties" group with us earlier this year where he completed his
RYA Yachtmaster Offshore.
We had so much fun with this group, the two 'Ballies' and three 'Lighties' made a formidable team!
Al was looking for a career change; out of the corporate world and into a more adventurous life-style in yachting. Al really lived the adventure and took in all the 'highs and lows' while working hard and sailing harder ... not to mention some good hard fun when the time was right! :-)
He was employed immediately after leaving us on a great delivery of a Catamaran along the SA coastline. He then shot over to the the Caribbean and has been working the season on another beautiful Catamaran running charters.
At Sail Due South we cater to all ages and areas of the yachting industry! Check out some pics mixed from his time at SDS and now in the Caribbean.
