Yes, there are two of us!
They say that a boat must have only one captain. That's not the case with Saba!
We are Captains Carol and Fernando, very pleased to meet you.
Nice to meet you, I'm Captain Fernando Silveira. After a career of more than 20 years in Marketing, I decided to live at sea, which I have been passionate about since I was a child. I am an Amateur Captain certified by the Brazilian Navy, and an OWSI Diving Instructor certified by PADI. I collect uncommon travel destinations and itineraries and I've been to 46 countries so far (including some very weird ones). In addition to sailing, I am a mountaineer (I have participated in expeditions in Africa, Europe, and even Everest), I am a drummer and devotee of rock and roll and love to play some music with anyone who shows up on deck.
I am responsible for the Saba deck work, its navigation, and safety on board. For that, I was trained by STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers), I am an EFR (Emergency First Response) instructor and Iove to study and learn more and more about sailing, meteorology, and safety at sea. For me is non-negotiable that Saba only navigates equipped with the most modern navigation, communication and security systems, ensuring that everyone on board is always safe and comfortable. Because after all, we must have a peaceful mind to grant the best of fun.
Hello! My name is Carol Lara and I am the second Saba commander! After years of leading communication agencies and digital consultancies, I decided to embrace my passion for the sea, which made me an Amateur Captain of the Brazilian Navy and a PADI Advanced Diver - not to mention the long training of STCW (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers).
I love to cook delights - which gives me the title of the chef on this boat. For years I taught practical and easy recipes on my Instagram @cozinhasolo, and now I bring all these expertise on board!
In addition to being addicted to sea and cooking, I love learning new languages and am passionate for games, outdoor walks and helping people out.
I am also responsible for cleaning and organizing Saba, ensuring that everything is in order and properly done over here!
