Darren grew up in the small coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, where living on the coast for most of his childhood allowed him to develop keen interests in being on the water. After spending his gap year sailing the Atlantic after school, Darren returned home to complete a degree in Quantity Surveying. It wasn’t long however, before the Ocean called him straight back and he started his career in the yachting industry. He has since worked on a variety of sailing yachts over the past 11 years. Sailing on Perseus^3 for the last 3.5 years. Firstly in the role Chief Officer/Delivery Captain, and for the past 1.5 years as rotating Captain.
Darren is well equipped to offer a great relaxing holiday on board in the safest possible way.
