WHERE IS COYOTE?
Captain Steve has more than 45 years offshore experience. He plans on sailing Florda, the Bahamas, Central America, the Sea of Cortez, mainland Mexico and Southern California and beyond with friends and family. He demands imperfection from both himself and his crew.
He completed his career as a tech company executive and later, a tech company owner and has retired to pursue his dream of finding a real job.
FIRST MATE MARGIE
Margie has been the head of the Meyer Family tribe since 1972. A true lover of the sea she has tolerated the passion of Captain Steve with grace and dignity. She really learned to love sailing after the invention of roller furling headsails. Prior to that she had knock down, dragged out fights over the proper way to fold a headsail after a day of sailing.
After a career as a commodities broker she raised three kids doing a nice job.
Captain Jack, a real captain (retired airline pilot) has sailed all his life. Practically raised on his parent’s thirty foot sailboat (which his mom called “clean camping”) he holds the steadiest course with the best sail trim I’ve ever seen. Knows his way around the galley too.
Jack is a retired Air Force Pilot and Airline Pilot. After a distinguished career buzzing neighborhoods in his US Government supplied aircraft he spent decades flying for PSA and USAir.
CIC FIRE CONTROL OFFICER ANDREW
Stephen Andrew (known as Andrew on the West Coast and Stephen on the East – what’s he hiding from) has been both crew and son to Captain Steve since he was very small. Not afraid to do the heavy lifting, stand any watch, catch any fish he is invaluable to any cruise.
After graduating from UCSB he spent a decade in New York and Washington before returning to California with his wife Lorren. He is a director in software sales.
Geoff joined the offshore crew in 2015, having previously, and continuously, served as Captain Steve’s son in law. He has raced and crewed with the team for years so was an immediate positive influence. He is also father to the best grandson and granddaughter ever.
After graduating from UCSB he moved to Los Angeles where is a Producer in Hollywood
Jeff has sailed his entire life but now lives a 1,000 miles from the nearest ocean. He has more experience in anchoring than any of the crew. As “anchoring helmsman” he seldom even needs a hand signal. He has read, and memorized, every electronic instruction manual which has earned him the nickname, “Sparky”.
Prior to joining the crew he has been a financial and marketing consultant and former Ambassador to Neptune where he was stationed for four years.
CHIEF ENGINEER BRETT
If you ever went to the head in the beautiful Islander Yachts you probably thought of Brett. He made their heads. A lifelong sailor and a regular on Captain Meyer’s boats, he is in charge of all things electrical, mechanical or magical.
Brett retired early after a successful career in custom homebuilding. He built homes for such famous people as Phil Nyan and Jennifer Johnson.
