Meet The Crew: Sam and Dudley from S/Y CRAZY HORSE

With the recent charter central agency appointment of Oyster 72, S/Y CRAZY HORSE, we are pleased to introduce Dudley and Sam, who will take care of charter guests. Down to earth and fun, both look forward to ensuring everyone has a great holiday experience from the moment you step on board.

“Cheers to the Dynamic duo Dudley and Sam for a wonderful action packed memorable sail. The world is a better place with both of you in it. Thanks for everything! We loved our trip and you two
were a huge part of it!!
” - Charter Guest, 2019

According to his passport, Dudley is an Englishman but has spent most of his adult life living abroad. Dudley found his passion for sailing in Anglesey, Wales, where he spent the summers racing Lasers. After graduating from University with a degree in Politics, he decided to pursue a career as a captain. Dudley has experience in the hospitality industry, including a stint working at a mountain lodge in the French Alps. Dudley enjoys running, mountain biking, skiing, and rugby. He is Sam’s right-hand man in the kitchen (a great pot-wash) and can make a killer Watermelon Margarita! With his recent experience and knowledge gained from working as the Captain on an Oyster825 and sailing throughout French Polynesia for three months, Dudley is ready to welcome guests on board Crazy Horse.

Sam spent five years sailing around the world with her family, and after a few years on dry-land, she heard the ocean’s call and found herself back on the high seas. She left her Marketing career behind in New Zealand and became a yacht hostess. Sam’s creativity is now directed at food, and she is now a passionate chef. With experience as a chef on various boats, such as an Oyster825, Samantha knows how to utilise the galley on board Crazy Horse and will create healthy and delicious meals using fresh and locally sourced produce. Sam enjoys swimming and scuba diving when she’s not in the galley.

“What wonderful hosts Dudley and Sam are. Our first time on a sailing charter yacht and they made us feel instantly at ease. Sam made beautiful and delicious meals and Dudley took us on some amazing scuba diving adventures. The sailing was just brilliant - we would recommend Dudley and Sam as crew to anyone and everyone!" - Charter Guest, 2018

Alongside having a great crew, CRAZY HORSE is unique to the Oyster fleet and enjoys notable features such as the carbon hull, deck and lightweight interior joinery, making her quick yet comfortable for cruising.
