Mark Wannenburg will be your skipper and host on board the sailing catamaran Ronin. He is an old-salt with a lifetime experience in sailing. He has cumulatively crossed the Atlantic and Indian oceans more times than he can count on two hands and he has sailed more than 100 000 nautical miles. He is a SAS and RYA Yachtmaster instructor and holds a South African Maritime Safety Authority commercially endorsed Yachtmaster ticket. He has spent the better part of 2018 refitting all the systems onboard Ronin and is now intimately acquainted with everything onboard. After numerous sea-trails, Mark and Ronin are ready to take on the high seas.


” Mark is one of the finest people I’ve ever met. He is wise, respectful, confident and peaceful. The weather required us to make some adjustments with the schedule, which worked out perfectly. During the rough waters, Mark was calm – I always felt safe. It was fun to help out with the sail and anchor, and by the time we departed, I wish I could have stayed on board much longer. I especially liked the dark, night sky- the stars popped- and quietly taking that in with Mark, is a memory I will never forget. I highly, highly recommend this adventure.” – Christopher on Airbnb (July 2018)
