David Milton and Lori Gudmundson are a dream team for your next voyage! They are a husband and wife team with a great love of the sea, having spent 7 years aboard their 40-foot sailing catamaran exploring the Eastern Caribbean islands, the Bahamas and the East Coast of the US while raising their two youngest children.
Captain David was born and raised in Durban, South Africa, where he was introduced to sailing before emigrating to the US in his teens. He holds a USCG Captains 50 Ton Certification. He has taught numerous troops of scouts sailing, the ways of the sea and life aboard a ship. He is also an abstract expressionist artist (www.davidmilton.com) whose vibrant, joyful work can be seen on Ubuntus colorful mast as well as in galleries in the Caribbean and U.S. His calm, relaxed disposition will help you feel at home during your time aboard.
First Mate Lori dreamt of cruising since taking a sailing trip to the Bahamas in her teens. Nomadic by nature, she has lived in Iceland, France, and across the U.S. and inspired her family to take to the sea. Her well-established graphic design and editing firm has given the family the flexibility to travel extensively. An avid learner, she speaks several languages and brings a passion for learning on board - from sea creatures' traits to environmental awareness to cuisine. Her easygoing enthusiasm is directed toward making your charter unforgettable.
Scrumptious healthy food has always been an important part of Davids and Loris lives (and is reflected by their eldest, now an executive chef in DC). They both love creating international culinary dishes, and use the freshest local ingredients available to delight the palate. They happily accommodate special dietary requests in creative ways.
