Meet The Crew

Meet The Crew

The Matthew is largely run and maintained by a dedicated crew of volunteers. They know everything about The Matthew and John Cabot, and their history.

The Matthew’s Skipper is well-known Bristol sailor, Rick Wakeham. Rick comes from a long line of Bristol seafarers. Come and say hello if you are on the Harbourside.


Our office manager is Sarah Barter. Sarah will be more than happy to talk with you if you’re thinking of booking a trip.


The Matthew is largely run and maintained by a dedicated crew of volunteers. They know a vast amount about The Matthew and John Cabot, and Bristol's maritime history. Come along for a free history lesson, and maybe some slightly taller tales!


We're currently looking to expand our team of volunteer guides and crew - take a look at our blog for more information.  If you are available on a regular basis and would like to be a part of our team, please send your details to info@matthew.co.uk.
