Ian Weinman

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough” This quote by Mae West perfectly captures my view on life. Growing up in the bustling mountain town of Park City, Utah and being raised on the ski hills, I´ve always had a passion for adventure and outdoor activities. Some of my hobbies include hiking, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, snorkeling, river rafting, and playing guitar. My first time sailing was when I was eight years old in the BVI´s aboard a 60-foot catamaran with my grandfather. Ever since, I´ve been in love with the ocean.

After high school, I moved to Seattle and entered into the yachting industry while I was in college. I then moved to Los Angeles where I worked as an engineer in a music studio, as well as captaining numerous private yachts. I also owned my own sailboat during that time, where I lived aboard and made a name for myself in the local sailing community participating in regattas and trips to Catalina Island with friends and neighbors.

Having captained yachts ranging from 30-70 feet, I have completed over 300 successful five-star charters on both sailing and power vessels, gaining over 4,000 nautical miles of blue water experience. I strive to make the best possible experience for my guests and crew with fun, safety and communication being top priorities. I hold a USCG 100 Ton Masters License with Sailing and Towing Endorsements, CPR and First Aid certificates, as well as my STCW-95 and STCW ii/3. Whatever your itinerary plans for your trip may be, I will be able to accommodate and make sure you have the best trip of your life! Welcome aboard!


Zoe Leppard

Hi, I´m Zoe! I am a dual citizen of Canada and the US, and grew up on a 48-foot wooden sailboat. We sailed the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, the West and East Coasts of the US & Canada, Central America, Colombia, and finally from British Columbia through the Panama Canal to Nova Scotia where I went to high school. It was while sailing that I discovered my love and passion for food. At age 12 I began cooking dinner for my family each night. I then attended the Culinary Institute of Canada and graduated with a 2 year diploma in Culinary Arts.
My first job upon graduation was on St John, USVI at a restaurant called Ocean362. I lived there for about 8 months and then left the island right before Irma and Maria hit. Since then, I have worked at several other fine dining restaurants and bakeries in cities such as West Palm Beach, Nantucket, & San Diego and landed at my last job which was chef on an 88-foot charter sport fishing boat. I´m no stranger to the ocean, and combining my love of food and being on the water makes a job not even seem like one at times!

My interests include cooking and baking (of course), traveling, snorkeling, paddle boarding, hiking, animals, swimming, spending time with friends and family, reading and gardening in my mom´s garden in Nova Scotia (when I´m visiting). I look forward to welcoming guests aboard!
