Repair things - they don't have to look perfect or new to be perfect.

THE OCEAN RACE EXPERIENCE:

2017-18 Team Brunel

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO CONNECT WITH THE OCEAN?

Surfing, Freediving, spearfishing, swimming.

 

IF YOU WERE A MARINE ANIMAL WHAT WOULD YOU BE?

Orca. They have fun, are social, and intelligent. They travel huge distances and live in every ocean in the world.

 

SHARE A FUN FACT ABOUT YOU AND SAILING:

I was dropped off at the local sailing club (Island Cruising Club in Salcombe) from a very young age, so my mother could go to work. There I would be thrown into anything from a Topper or Mayflower to a 32 Contessa, 95′ Gaff rigged Brixham trawler, or rowing boat. Anything to keep me entertained for the day. I discovered the ‘Superyacht Industry’ and thereafter, the racing world, after being the instructor for a group who turned out to all have husbands that were round the world racers…

 

WHAT DOES SUSTAINABILITY MEAN TO YOU?

Changing the world to one in which I would be proud to raise children, in clean, clear seas.

 

How do you live a more sustainable lifestyle?

Shop local, and find the shops or markets which accept my own containers. Repair things – they don’t have to look perfect or new to be perfect.

 

How do you encourage others to lead a more sustainable life?

By doing what I do in their company, talk about the world their children will inherit.
