Jonothan first started sailing at the age of 12 on Vaal Dam lake in South Africa where he learned the basics of sailing. Shortly after completing his Day Skipper’s licence he joined private yachts, performing many deliveries all across the world. After 5 years of learning the ropes on different boats Jono has joined Thumper as Bosun, getting one step closer to his Officer of the Watch qualification. He just recently finished his PADI Advanced Open Water dive qualification and in his free time enjoys diving or snorkelling on wrecks and coral reefs. On windy days he will jump at the chance to hoist the sails and head off sailing with some friends, having fun in the sun. Jono’s engineering experience also qualifies him to be the assistant engineer onboard whenever required.
