Michael Lang

Captain

Michael and Jennifer's love affair with sailing evolved from a desire to travel at a pace slow enough for all the colors of the world to soak in and leave a stain. They are adventure seekers on a quest of discovery, excitement and thrills. You can rely on them for exposure to places seldom visited and being introduced to a lifestyle outside of ordinary. Michael is originally from Silicon Valley outside San Francisco, California. He approaches life as an everlasting expedition always in search of the next adventure. His career prior to working as a Captain on charter yachts was spent working in the Renewable Power Industry for a Wind Turbine Manufacturer based in Denmark. He worked in the field installing new generators and maintained the Renewable Power Facilities during power production. Later he worked in after-sales operations to coordinate resources and engineering support as a Product Platform Specialist, Key Account Specialist, and Data Analyst. He has constructed, and troubleshoot power plants all over the United States and overseas in Germany and Denmark. But Michael left the corporate world in search of a bigger adventure. Their wanderlust for exploration developed into a dream to build a Catamaran capable of ocean passages. In 2012, they found a suitable Catamaran in the early stages of construction that needed a new builder to finish. A year after taking over the project they launched it for the first time. It is presently 45ft in length, with plans to extend it to 52ft and an amalgamation of modern multi-hull design concepts for open ocean cruising. A significant construction milestone positioned them in a palpable position to operate charter yachts in the Caribbean while refining the final aspects. To embark on a lifestyle of travel, they put their careers on hiatus, sold their home and booked flights to the Caribbean to work on crewed charter yachts. In 2013, they moved to the British Virgin Islands to start their first season as a Captain and Chef team. Michael and Jennifer operated a number of different charter catamarans in the 45-60ft range. A highlight was being part of the crew delivering Richard Branson's 105ft catamaran to Florida. At the end of their first season, they found full-time positions on AdAstra, a 57ft Lagoon catamaran to operate for their 2nd and 3rd season. Then operated Catsy a 62ft Sunreef Catamaran for their 4th season. Over the course of four seasons they have operated over 60 charters, including voyages in the British Virgin Island, Spanish Virgin Islands and the Saints (St. Maarten & St. Barths). Michael is happy to be a guide for outdoor activities, sailing and water sports. His practice in addressing challenges has fostered an even-keeled character, reinforced with the patience to reap the potential of hard work while leading life with imagination. He accentuates the pursuit of his dreams with a can-do attitude. Michael enjoys sharing his life experience with guests.
