The Captain

Captain Alfred Janiga

His sailing experience began on a chain of lakes: Mazury in Poland, as a teenager, student and member of Student Association of Sport in Wilkasy near Gizycko; on the lake Niegocin, participating in team sailing regattas and later independently sailing the waters of the Mazurian lakes.

For over twenty years, he is continuously cruising and exploring intercostals and near coastal waters of the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Great Lakes. He believes ” … only practice and endless education makes me a better and safer sailor.”

Alfred is a graduate of United States Maritime Academy, holding the following licenses: United State Coast Guard Lakes Masters, Near Coastal Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels License with Sailing Endorsement and Commercial Assist Towing Endorsement. His adventurous passion for traveling and exploring would not be complete without being a licensed P.A.D.I. scuba diver.

For the last ten years, he has been sailing the Great Lakes, for which he feels great respect and admiration.


The Vessel

“Lady B,”
Beneteau Oceanis 321

Designed by Groupe Finot and built by Beneteau, the Oceanis 321 was made for cruising, speed and comfort. Her stable, fast performance, combined with a surprisingly spacious interior and two-cabin layout, make her the ideal yacht for a luxurious and relaxing sail or blue water cruise.

The Oceanis 321's low center of gravity makes for efficient and stable sailing. She is solidly built, well-balanced and very safe, even in heavy weather conditions. She makes an ideal cruiser and offers pleasant short or light-handed sailing thanks to her furling main and 140% furling genoa sail.

The two-cabin layout offers spacious crew accommodations. The broad beam of the Oceanis 321 makes for a roomy cockpit, complete with swim ladder and shower on the transom as well as a large head (toilet) with a separate shower. The L-shaped kitchen is well-equipped, with a good sized table and adjacent seating areas.

The vessel is equipped with up-to-date safety, navigation and communication instruments which include the following: Compass, Wind Log, Autopilot, Radar, VHF DSC radio, GPS, Chart Plotter, CD/Radio Stereo and Navigation lights. USCG approved safety equipments include: Personal Floating Vests, Satellite Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB), Sound and Visual signals, smoke flares, floating seat cushions, throwable life ring, fire extinguishers, radar reflector and First Aid Kit.
