BEHIND THE SCENES

Meet the people it takes to run a long-range Offshore Sailing School.

The people and faces you will meet when training or passage making with Sail Libra. This is by far a shortlist of all the help we receive along the way in different ports and exotic places, but these people are the lifeblood of Sail Libra. Without this carefully orchestrated team of Professionals we wouldn't exist at all.

Ryan Rayfield

Ryan has been sailing since he was a child, starting on the lakes of Alabama and then in Asia for the better part of his twenties, doing day charters and deliveries around the globe.

Stephen Higginbotham

Captain of Sea Angel

"Bo", as we call him, joined Libra's team by accident, he signed up for a passage to see if the lifestyle choice of sailing and cruising was for him. And it is!

Four years and many miles later he is the owner and Captain of Sea Angel and still very much involved as expert in the operations of Sail Libra.
