Columbia Crew Profile

Crew Number8
CaptainSeth Salzmann

Name: Seth Salzmann
Position: Rotational Captain
Nationality: US
Captain Seth Salzmann took command of Columbia in 2018, after 15 years´ captaincy behind him on some of the most unique classic boats afloat. Over the course of tens of thousands of miles the Fife schooner Adventuress, Alden schooner When and If and Alden racing schooner Malabar X rank among his most recent commands, along with a slew of well-known East Coast schooners in the USA.

A deep and abiding passion for sailing and the ocean, coupled with 20 years in Guest Experience at sea have given Seth an unparalleled talent for sculpting a fun, safe, successful charter in all weathers according to the requirements of his guests. And if the weather really is that bad, two decades at sea have equipped him with stories well worth hearing over a cozy dinner down below!

Well-known for his calm demeanour under pressure, his advocacy for independent thinking and professional advancement in his crew, and his talent for doing what ´can´t be done´ under sail, Seth is acknowledged among the Old Salts as one of the last true schooner captains; a perfect match for the classic sailing behemoth that is the schooner Columbia.

Name: Dylan Salzmann
Position: Rotational Captain
Nationality: US
Dylan is the brother and co-captain with Seth Salzmann and has been with Columbia for the last two years, always with superb reviews from happy guests.
