Chef/ DeckhandKaty Dease

Captain Tom has been running boats on the bayous of South Louisiana since the age of 8. At age 18, he bought his
first of many sailboats, a Hobie 14. He was hooked on sailing for life! In his 20’s he raced Hobies and eventually
graduated to racing Olympic Class Tornado Catamarans. Thomas presently holds a USCG Master Captain License
with Sailing Endorsement. The past few years, Captain Tom and his bride of 30 years, Brenda, have been sailing the
Caribbean Sea on their Leopard 44 from Belize to Grenada and all points in between. Being Cajun born and raised,
cooking is something Captain Tom loves to do! He can cook all kinds of Cajun food, from Chicken and Sausage
Gumbo to Shrimp Etouffee. You will always find an abundance of delicious food on his table, Cést Bon!
