Seth Salzmann


WHEN AND IF’s Captain Seth Salzmann has over 15 years' captaincy behind him on some of the most unique classic boats afloat including Schooner COLUMBIA. He has logged tens of thousands of miles the Fife schooner ADVENTURESS, Alden schooner WHEN AND IF and Alden racing schooner MALABAR X rank among his most recent commands, along with a slew of well-known East Coast schooners in the USA.

A deep and abiding passion for sailing and the ocean, coupled with 20 years in Guest Experience at sea have given Seth an unparalleled talent for sculpting a fun, safe, successful charter in all weathers according to the requirements of his guests. And if the weather really is that bad, two decades at sea have equipped him with stories well worth hearing over a cozy dinner down below!

Well-known for his calm demeanour under pressure, his advocacy for independent thinking and professional advancement in his crew, and his talent for doing what "can't be done" under sail, Seth is acknowledged among the Old Salts as one of the last true schooner captains.

Jenny is proud to make the care of her guests and crew her first consideration. Her quest for The Perfect Drink For Every Occasion has started her down the path of craft cocktail making and she strives to serve any beverage at any angle of heel under sail. She loves a bit of sailing and if the deck crew have room for her she'll gladly take a sheet for a race and furl topsails at the end of the day if there is time. However, more often than not she'll be making bunks, polishing brass, arranging flowers, creating drinks, laying tables, stocking fridges, and cleaning something.
