Mungo’s love for sailing and wild places comes from a lifetime of adventure under sail around the world. He was born and raised in the small village of Ballachulish in the West Highlands of Scotland and grew up in a seafaring family, with his father working as both a boat builder and fisherman.
Mungo began his own career at sea, leaving school to go sailing with the Ocean Youth Trust. He then went on to explore the farthest-flung corners of the globe, spending seven years as the Bosun onboard the classic sailing schooner “Adix”. He has completed three trans-Pacific crossings, numerous Atlantic voyages and extensive Caribbean and Mediterranean cruising and racing. That said, there is no place like home and having ventured far and wide, he has come to the conclusion that sailing in the West Coast of Scotland really is the best in the world.
Having grown up messing about in boats on the Helford River, she went on to study illustration and printmaking before deciding to embark upon a career at sea. Eda Frandsen’s very own James Mackenzie put her through her Yacht master’s certificate in 2016 and she hasn’t looked back since.
Her love of wild places has led her on voyages across the globe, including a place on an all women’s research voyage from Brazil to Guyana, exploring the impact of plastic pollution on our bodies and the environment.
She also has a vested interest in your health and well being onboard Eda Frandsen. Her love of locally sourced, sustainable produce will see you happily fed throughout your stay. Her recent role as the chef on board the classic William Fife yacht “Cambria” means she’s no stranger to confined spaces or cooking at an angle and she’s very much looking forward to sharing with you the delights of Cornish & Scottish local produce.
