Bitten by the sailing bug whist working in Marseille and sailing on a colleague’s 42ft racing Jeanneau off the coast of Genoa, I finally started learning to sail myself out of Port Edgar on the Firth of Forth in my late 30's.
Sailing has always provided an extremely welcome escape from an often demanding career in medical biotechnology, although I have also used business trips to experience sailing in many fascinating locations. Race night in Melbourne Harbour was a particularly memorable evening. At home, I have been an enthusiastic participant in the club’s cruising in company programme since joining the club in 2006, building my sailing confidence with the support and knowledge of others. I served as Cruising Convenor from 2014-16 and on our 33ft Delphia, Corshyecan, we enjoy frequent social sailing around the Clyde and beyond with our friends and fellow club members.
I have worked with past and present Commodores to put in place a Development plan for the club, using my professional knowledge and experience of public sector funding and small business and charity governance. I look forward to working with all sectors of the club now to further develop and deliver a successful future.
