Captain Name: Shawn Deweese Nationality: USA Number of Crew: 3

Captain Shawn Deweese:
Shawn holds a Bachelor's Degree in Naval Architecture &amp; Marine Engineering from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, &amp; a Master's Degree in Social Organizational Psychology from Columbia University. He served nine years at sea in the U.S. Coast Guard aboard cutters ALEX HALEY (Kodiak, AK), KUKUI (Honolulu, HI), &amp; CAMPBELL (Kittery, ME). He also commanded Cutters ADAK (Manama, Bahrain) &amp; KISKA (Hilo, HI). He is a licensed Merchant Mariner with a 1600-ton Oceans Master License. Now that we've gotten all of the really serious things out of the way, we figured you'd like to know a little more about this one. He's pretty cool. Shawn is a talented craftsman. He makes cutting boards, paddles, picture frames, &amp; much more, all from really beautiful wood. He's a die hard fan of pretzels. Any kind of pretzels. Most of us consider Shawn to be amphibious. He spends much of his time underwater, sometimes to the concern of others.

First Mate/Deck Hand: Victoria Balcheva
Victoria was introduced to sailing in sunny Greece a few years ago. She loved the idea of being in the water and running a boat. She earned her Skipper diploma for yachts up to 72ft while in Greece and spent a year running day trips and multi-day cruises around Thassos island. Victoria immersed herself in the sail culture and participated in local regattas, and was a skipper for a two week trip around Greece, transiting the Corinth Canal twice and gaining more than 3500NM as a skipper. Victoria decided to expand her knowledge and went back to the USA where she gained STCW, Powerboat 2, RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certification. She&rsquo;s currently completing USCG 100 Ton Captain license certification while being Shawn&rsquo;s right hand running August Maverick. She and Shawn delivered August Maverick north last year from the USVI to Maine adding 2700NM under her belt. In addition to her many responsibilities as the only permanent crew member, Victoria manages August Maverick&rsquo;s social media, website and tries to keep Shawn out of trouble...some jobs are harder than others!
