1st Mate - Sam Martin

1st Mate Sam Martin

Originally from North Dorset in south west England. Sam worked as a forester after leaving school for 4 years. The practical skills and works ethic he learned were valuable tools in making the move into yachting.

Working as deckhand on a racer cruiser competing in the Wally circuit in the Med for four years was the perfect place to learn and develop new skills. He then made the move onto Sorceress at the beginning of 2017 when the boat was launched in Cape Town.

When not onboard Sam enjoys skiing and spending time with family and friends back in Dorset.

Stewardess - Stephanie Power

Stephanie is from the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Australia. She spent several years working with children both as a nanny and as an Early Childhood teacher before she made the move to work on the ocean.

Having now worked on both Motor Yachts and Sailing Yachts during her time in yachting, her passion is on sailing yachts.

Stephanie has completed seven seasons as a Stewardess and is excited to work on Sailing Yacht Sorceress.

She enjoys anything that involves being outdoors.

She was commissioned by a yachtsman who previously owned an 80′ custom carbon yacht and is a keen racer. This owner was looking for a larger performance yacht to use in both coastal and transoceanic races and for bluewater cruises.
