Captain Richard R. Weber

As both a motorcyclist and a sailor, Rick Weber’s experience is extensive. Beginning when he was 12 years old, riding and repairing motorcycles have filled Rick’s life richly. As a BMW factory trained technician at the dealership level since the early 1980's and running his own repair shop for 10 years after that, he has been involved in the industry in many forms. As a rider he has logged several hundred thousand miles across two continents and all of New Zealand. As a racer at the local and national level he was ranked 2nd in the California and 5th in the Nation, competing in the prestigious “Battle of the Twins” class, winning six thousand dollars in 1984. Later he won several events in AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association) vintage classes.

As a sailor Rick had another career beginning in 1975 sailing square rigged ships, private yachts and commercial tugs throughout the Atlantic, Carribean, and Pacific Oceans, with two passages through the Panama Canal. After getting his 100 ton Master’s licence in 1999 he went on to skipper yachts across the Pacific, Atlantic, and Mediterranean Sea. Currently working in the Charter trade on San Francisco Bay he also runs his own boat for the film industry and marshaling swimming events.Following his father and brother’s lead in the broadcast and film industry, Rick has a done well with his understanding of what it takes to “get the shot” and getting the most out of his equipment.
