CAP II Crew Profile
Captain Keith Chipping
It took Keith working as a school teacher to learn the lesson that the call of the sea had a far greater appeal than the call of the classroom. Having a long standing interest in history and current affairs had led Keith into academic study that culminated in teacher training and work in English high schools trying to impart this passion on our future generations.
Then sailing was discovered, along with the realization that his own passion for teaching was not as powerful as his passion for sailing. It was sailing in its purist form that led to this conversion – that is, dinghy sailing. Instead of extolling the virtues of political participation Keith found himself, instead, describing the combination of art, science and physical endeavour which is needed to make a machine move through the water to the point where it only seemed sensible that he leave behind an established profession and move into the little known world of ‘professional yachting’.
Keith added to his dinghy qualifications with a Yachtmaster ticket and has since worked on a range of boats from racing yachts to even a motorboat, when needs called. He worked a complete season as a flotilla skipper in Greece and then went onto work as a delivery skipper taking newly built yachts from France to Greece and Turkey. A transatlantic on a 36’ catamaran took him to America and then the Caribbean.
Keith joined CAP II after working on a well-known race boat which spends part of the year in the Caribbean. It was during this period that he met Dina, whose calm demeanour wasn’t even rattled cooking for, and sharing a boat with, 18 sweaty ocean racers for a week. This composure was invaluable as Keith and Dina took over CAP II and led her through an extensive refit in Trinidad which has restored her back to the splendour which such an elegant boat deserves.

Keith is perhaps the best charter skipper I have known, combining a caring manner with vast technical knowledge. He also is a highly cultured and charming gentleman. I cite one remark: when explaining the Luke prop to me, he said, "It opens up like a Fabergé egg." Not many others on the waterfront would have used that simile, I warrant! He really, really loves this boat. And it is a boat of enormous potential. She sails extremely well, is very comfortable below and has most needed amenities. Nick
