Jannika grew up in the lake district in Finland, but her love and passion for the ocean and travelling got her to learn how to sail. After working in the diving industry in South East Asia and Australia, she moved to living on a sailing yacht.
She got her first job on board working Mediterranean charters as a dive guide/mate and started building her professional yacht career.
She later on captained yachts in the Caribbean, their itineraries including teaching, racing, and scuba diving. She is a keen racer and has completed most of the Caribbean regattas, skippering many of them. She has built mileage from Atlantic crossings, North American deliveries as well as cruising around the Caribbean and the Pacific side of Central America.
Jannika thrives to deliver safe and enjoyable experiences for guests and loves to share her passion for the sea and sailing. She is RYA Yacht Master Ocean qualified and also holds PADI dive instructor rating. Together with her partner Ryan they both share the interest for cooking and make sure guests are looked after with the best hospitality. If not sailing, Jannika can be found scuba or freediving, surfing, hiking or photographing her surroundings.
