Captain Alan Collinge
Alan was introduced to life on the water at a very early age. His father, being a Royal Navy Mariner, and his Grandfather, a highly regarded businessman in the European yachting world, it wasn’t long before he found his calling on the salty side. Growing up in South Africa, originally starting his journey as a surf lifeguard and scuba diving instructor in various locations around the world, Alan naturally progressed into captaincy of ocean going vessels in places like The Caribbean, Western Mediterranean, Hong Kong, Cyprus and South Africa. Now with almost a decade of experience in commanding roles, you can be sure to feel at ease whilst aboard La Gatta. Alan is, and always has been, an avid Watersports man, participating in many different sports such as kitesurfing, surfing, scuba diving, spear fishing and many more. Above the water he is a long time golfer and all round ball-sports enthusiast.
