About Me:

I run my own photography business, and took a year and a half off to prepare my boat and fulfil my dream by sailing down to the Canaries, crossing the Atlantic and then cruising the Caribbean, which was a fabulous 11 months cruising. This January I rejoined my yacht in Trinidad and sailed through the Windward and Leeward islands again to Antigua. The virus struck so I flew back to the UK, and I have transported my yacht back here as well, so as soon as the lock down is lifted I plan to make the best of the summer sailing along the south coast and possibly down south to France/Spain/Portugal and maybe back to the Caribbean! I have been described as calm, capable, modest and confident. I have a grown up son and daughter, with whom I share the passions of motor racing and sailing. As well as family and friends I am looking for new friends to join me and share cruising on my lovely Bowman 42, a truly accomplished blue water cruiser. There is lots of anchoring in idyllic bays and swimming/diving/watersports, fantastic trade wind sailing, and visits ashore. I am looking for practical people who are not afraid of rolling up their sleeves and helping out with daily cleaning and maintenance work as well, this is all part of serious cruising. An interest in creative and resourceful cooking is particularly welcome!

Sailing Experience:

I lived on a 65' motor boat boat in the Mediterranean for three years with my family when I was a teenager. We visited most of the countries in the Med and and I taught myself to run and maintain all of the engines and electrics. I love the water and learnt to scuba dive and mono ski at the time. I also love free diving and I am learning to kite surf. I have helped my daughter commission and maintain her live aboard yacht and converted fishing boat. In the last 15 years I have developed my sailing skills and skippered various boats in the UK and the Med, as well as preparing and sailing my own boat from the UK across the Atlantic and visiting much of the Caribbean.
