The Captain is a salty sea dog if ever you laid eyes on one. He hails from a long line of seafaring folk and had his love for sailing whetted as a young boy. Deliveries and charters are how he filled his days as a lad, until he fell in love and had a family, after which he had a brief lapse of land lubber career moves in construction and property development. Albeit all towards the cause of fulfilling his life long dream of building his own home upon the high seas and taking his family on many adventures. Now he wants to share his lifestyle and passion for cruising with anyone who might share his values.
With a quick wit and philosophical fancies, and a deep rooted knowledge of the high seas and sailing, Captain Dirk is a sure quick friend and hospitable yachty.
Although everyone who comes aboard The Coracle becomes a part of the family, they tend to come and go. There is however, a solid core crew who permanently call her Home.
Chief Mate Michele
The travel bug bit this crew member a long time ago. Living aboard The Coracle Michele has had her travel cravings sated, though she will ever be ecstatic to see more of the world.So eager is she too see new places that when she met Captain Dirk she did not hesitate to pack up and sell all of her belongings and her home within a couple of days to go on a crazy adventure with the motley mariner.It is easy to share ones hopes and ideas about the nomad lifestyle and the history of travel and exploration with Michele’s open, friendly personality. One of her passions is to explore local cultures, delving into the myriad sense assaulting markets and street scenes
Although she knows she really
is the one wearing the pants in
this crew, Olive allows her
humans to think that they are in
charge. If you have a ball in your
hand then you’re her best friend
and if you take her to the beach
then you can do no wrong.
Olive is in charge of security and
does regular perimeter checks to ensure that the birds don’t encroach on her territory. She is also on fish alert.Much fun and constant entertainment is had with Olive and she knows that she’s really the only reason anyone ever visits anyway!
