I’m often asked how I made the leap from Olympic sailor to author. Though the two achievements would seem to require very different skill sets, they both played to my strengths in combining self-motivation and creativity.

Thanks for dropping by! If you’re looking for a content creator who speaks sailing, send me an email.
