Captain Sofia: Sofia is an enthusiastic sea lover, who has a strong connection with nature. She’s an adventurer and loves an active lifestyle, meeting new people, and sharing memories with them at sea.
Sofia has a strong background in sport, having competed at elite level in international rowing. She loves to stay active and is incredibly passionate about sailing and swimming in the sea - even better if with some wildlife around!
Having worked in a range of industries, from hospitality to asset management, Sofia likes growing in knowledge and experiences wherever she goes and enjoying life to the fullest. Somewhat a madcap when it comes to new challenges and adventures, Sofia has cycled across several countries, run up mountains and rowed across the Atlantic Ocean.
Chef Jenine: Jenine is a culinary trained chef from Cape Town, South Africa. After completing her Bachelors of commerce degree and subsequently working four years in corporate retail, she left Cape Town to go on a brief traveling sabbatical and never looked back to ‘conventional’ life again.
Jenine was an avid traveler in her 20’s and after spending 6 months in India she decided yet again to make a major change and decided to seek work on superyachts. Although she initially joined superyachts to continue her nomadic lifestyle; a deep love for being on the water, and expressing herself creatively through food, is what kept her there. After 5 seasons on yachts, Jenine has now transitioned to catamarans where she can have a more hands on experience with both guests and sailing alike.
As she is in the process of completing her yachtmasters, she has merged her love for cooking with sailing so this has truly become a way of life for Jenine, living her dream. Jenine is very social, loves water sports and exploring new, undiscovered places.
Sofia and Jenine look forward to creating life-long memories with you aboard Luna Bliss!
