David and Sue Ellen Jenkins

Guest Interview – Knot Wafflen - David and Sue Ellen Jenkins Aspen C-120 40ft Catamaran.

So David, tell me a little about this 10,000nm journey? Well, I wanted to do a lot of boating and become an expert boater, one way to do that is to do a ton of sea miles.  Having Aspen help sponsor the trip has allowed me to fulfil this dream and helped make it all possible. When you purchased your Aspen 40, what were the key features you were looking for? I was looking for distance and speed. I am not a slow boater, that said however, I do love sailboats but basically I like to get to wher...

So, Denis, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far?

Guest Interview Jeff Sanson - Pacific Yacht Management

So, Jeff, tell us a little something about you and your background in the marine industry? I started my career at age 13 on the sport fishing docks of San Diego. The deckhands would pay me $3.00 to clean a toilet when the boats returned from albacore fishing for the day.  They were nasty!  Then the captains hired me to clean the engine rooms for $10.00 and clean the bilges. Back then the boats all ran GMS and they puked oil and the bilges were an oily mess and the engine rooms were about 110 d...

So, Callum, tell us a little something about your current role as Captain in charge of all things Nordhavn? Regulars will know that nearly 10 years ago, I had a contract across my desk to sell my company for a figure just shy of £5m. Unfortunately this was about 4 weeks before Lehman Brothers went pop and to cut a long story short, the deal evaporated and over the coming years, I nearly lost the lot. In the 4-weeks that I imagined myself as a minnow in the world of high-finance, I cruised th...
