Adams and crew
Your professional crew aboard catamaran ZINGARA,
newlyweds Lee Adams and Nadine Meyers
CAPTAIN – LEE ADAMS
Lee’s interest in the Maritime Industry was installed in him from
the earliest age possible, owing to his grandfather being Admiral Tom
Hardiman of the Port Elizabeth Navy.
While at a young age he took part in bay racing and lending a hand at
the local yacht club. His passion for sailing grew and after school and
much thought, Lee took to the oceans on a recreational professional side
as opposed to the Navy.
He joined a crew and raced across the Atlantic, where he took part in
regattas in Antigua and St Maarten. In the USA he was able to establish
himself as a valuable crew member aboard a classic Schooner that circumnavigated
the globe, and after completing his maritime studies he was fortunate
to take over as skipper and gained more experience in the engineering
Lee is an active and enthusiastic person, he enjoys all water sports.
The experiences he has gained through his travels along with a jovial
personality creates a pleasant atmosphere which is enough to make any
guest aboard feel right at home, ready to relax and enjoy themselves.
CHEF – NADINE MEYERS ADAMS
Nadine grew up at Lake Zeekoevlei, right next to South Africa’s
most stunning coastal city Cape Town. Sailing was a natural progression
for Nadine who from an early age enjoyed dinghy sailing as an active member
of the Sailing Club. Combining her love of people, passion for food together
with a massage qualification she worked with the aged and frail as a personal
in house chef and carer in the United Kingdom. Returning home in 2008
she felt the pressing desire to continue travelling which inspired her
in the direction of professional sailing. She joined a Classic yacht in
Newport, RI and spent 2 years travelling up and down the east coast of
America with the boats busy schedule. Nadine has a passion for the ocean
and a zeal for service which will leave her guests rejuvenated and inspired.

comes from previous jobs world wide working as a dive instructor in many
5 Star resorts and live aboard vessels. Starting from a young age Kieran

Michelle is your stewardess onboard Zingara - She is an ocean girl coming
from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A place where her passion for the ocean
and underwater life grew throughout her upbringing. Working in 5 Star
resorts in Puerto Vallarta as a dive master and photographer has allowed
Michelle to follow her dreams of working by the ocean whilst working in
a service industry.

and underwater photographers. It was here that a great working relationship
was forged and they have continued to work successfully together in a
variety of roles. Conducting a research project in the Turks & Caicos
on a Humpback Whales which resulted in record breaking encounters and
unbelievable new data collected again showcased their talent. Once the
whales left the Turks and Caicos Kieran and Michelle decided to head south
