I am a keen yachtswoman and self-confessed island-hopping addict. I grew up in Mallorca, learning to sail in my Optimist “Amigo” out of The Club de Vela Andratx. I started work aged 19 in the fashion industry working for brands such as Burberry, Max Mara and Mulberry whilst studying for my Marketing Degree at CIM.
Following a year sailing in Australia to complete my Yacht master in 1998 I joined The W-Class Racing Yachts as crew. The yachts participating in global classic yacht regattas to promote the Class. I soon took on the role of Marketing and Management and organized an owner, his five yachts and an endless stream of British and Antipodean Yacht guests and Crew.
In 2000 together with W-Class President Donald Tofias I founded The Spirit of Tradition Society campaigning for modern classic yachts to receive a recognized place within a classic yacht regatta in Europe. A Spirit of Tradition Classification was formed allowing them to participate in vintage racing for the first time ever. It was historic!
In 2003 I managed The Spirit Yacht Mediterranean Rally providing a package of services ranging from Logistics & Shore Support to Social Entertainment, Berthing for each yacht and owner throughout the Mediterranean.
