Captain Kimani Rams, Kimani (with no hair), Patrick, Kevin and Jacob

??? – well think of it, today is 29th Feb as it is a leap year and, 32 years ago Kimani Leslie was born in Placencia!! In Caye Caulker, he is alone with this date of birth and this, amongst a number of wonderful character traits, makes him absolutely unique!!!

Kimani was one of the founding crew members of Raggamuffin back 10 years ago. His brother Mark Leslie had encouraged him to move from Placencia to find more regular work up here in Caye Caulker. Back then he was already a skilled Captain and Tour Guide with his own motor boat, but he was intrigued by the sailboats and therefore he joined our small band of merry men!!

Kimani has grown with us, in fact he is instrumental in teaching not to mention encouraging and motivating many of those who joined after him … Patrick and Kevin in particular. His sailing skills and his experience with larger boats like Ragga Queen make him a senior Captain and very much one of our staff to look up to. Along with this he is famous for his relaxed and easy going character, huge energy for work and a great favorite with our staff on the boat and in the office.

Happy birthday Kimani!
