Captain Brian Perry Saupe
Brian is a polymath; his expertise is wide-ranging. On board ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT he wears all the hats. Brian says, “I do everything on board; captain, cook, bartender, maid, plumber, engineer and diesel mechanic. I take care of everything, except musical entertainment, as unfortunately I can’t sing.” Not only does he do everything, he does it all extremely well. And, what Brian lacks in musical aptitude, he overwhelmingly compensates for in warmth, charm and humor.
Brian grew up spending all his time on the ocean off Long Beach, California. In addition to swimming, surfing, fishing, and sailing, he played water polo, was a competitive swimmer, and a summer lifeguard. He taught sailing in the Boy Scouts. (He’s an Eagle Scout, only four percent of Boy Scouts are granted this rank.) He is always available to help those who have little experience in the water. Guests aboard ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT keen to try snorkeling, paddle boarding, or take a turn at the helm, will delight in his gentle, patient instruction.
Brian says that he fell in love with boating as a child. His lifelong dream of sailing around the world began in elementary school. However, after achieving a degree in Criminal Justice he went into Law Enforcement, first on the streets of Los Angeles County, and later in the Denver metro area. He is expertly qualified as a first responder, in First Aid/CPR, and basic life support. When he had earned his retirement from the force, it was finally time to realize his dream. He sold everything, obtained a USCG Captain’s license, and immediately set sail.
Aboard ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT, Brian shares the beauty and privilege of living life on a luxury catamaran in the Caribbean. There’s fishing, sunsets, dining on deck, swimming and water sports, touring, restaurants and beach bars. Brian is an expert mariner and a really friendly, laid-back guy who is always smiling!! Who says dreams don’t come true?
