About your Mentor
About your Mentor
I grew up sailing on the lakes in England. I was 10 when I first set foot in a boat and I was addicted instantly. I have crossed the Atlantic twice. Once from the Canaries via the Cape Verde islands to Trinidad, Tobago in the Caribean. The second time was from Salvidor, Brazil via Azores Islands, Portugal to Southhampton. The second crossing was particularly challenging with several big storms. I learnt to work with nature and not to fight with the weather. They were awe-inspiring adventures and I love sharing my learnings with others and support them as they embark on similar adventures. I have been offshore racing for four years as a race engineer, bowman driver, and navigator on modern racing yachts, ranging from Maxis, Open 60s and AC72. I was proud to have navigated my first Atlantic crossing. I am also a keen Rock climber and hiker. I also have a background in technical theatre and project management.
