A keen yachtswoman and self-confessed island hopping addict, preferably by boat!
Spending summers growing up in Mallorca, Spain was idyllic for a young girl deeply, madly keen on boats. The family had a small classic teak gentleman’s launch, which was mother ship to Alice’s sailing dinghies and windsurfers. Aged 10 she competed in races at The Club de Vela in Port d’Andratx in her steadfast Optimist “Amigo” just for kicks and camaraderie.
In 1999 after a career in the London Fashion Industry with Mulberry and a year sailing in Australia, Alice joined as a crew member onboard The W-Class Racing Yachts, “White Wings” and “Wild Horses” 76-foot racing sloops. The yachts were doing a global marketing tour and participating in all of the classic yacht regattas to promote the W-Class. Alice soon took on the PR & Marketing and Regatta Management of the growing fleet of yachts and crew as she coordinated their movements around the world with her multi-lingual skills.
