Caribbean, Central America & Pacific Asia Middle East Author
Thanks to her father - a sea-faring R.N.Commander - Clare spent her latter teenage years crewing aboard the family yacht throughout the Mediterranean. Having acquired sufficient sea miles by the age of 20, she became an RYA Yachtmaster Offshore; and following the addition of a Cordon Bleu Diploma, she soon found employment in the Superyacht industry. Over the following years in the Mediterranean, she gained wide experience in various different roles... as Deckhand aboard a 65' ketch; Mate aboard an 80' classic; Stewardess aboard a 180' motor yacht, and Chef aboard the very first Superyacht to carry a helicopter on her upper deck!
In 2004 she joined the Superyacht Publications team to carry out research for the first edition of the Superyacht Services Guide to the Mediterranean, before moving on to the Caribbean Guide several years later.
As well as researching and writing for the Caribbean Guides, Clare has been instrumental in developing the Pacific, Asia & Middle East Guide – at the request of yacht captains and services further afield, to be included in one of our Guides! She looks after the Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand with annual visits to Auckland and outlying Pacific Islands, where she carries out substantial research for this region. In this ever developing industry, Clare is extremely knowledgable and well respected to research and represent these areas in our Guides.
