Claire | Operations

Claire started her career in a very different role to what she is in now! Claire began working full time at the age of 16 and worked for the Local Government in many different administration and logistic roles. She then went on to work for Community Safety and was also a Positive Activities Officer for the Youth Offending Team. Craving a more exciting job role, she joined Cowes Week Ltd as Logistics and Operations Manager falling in love with the Sailing Industry.

I fell in love with the sailing industry as soon as I joined and couldn’t believe the difference from working for Local Government. I was given some amazing opportunities and was very fortunate to work for another local sailing company for a while and I also spent some time living and travelling around the Caribbean. The Caribbean sailing circuit was so much fun (hard work but then you work hard and you play hard!)

Claire has always lived on the Island so she is our only ‘local girl’ here at Salty Sailing – anything you want to know about the Island, then ask away.

Full fat coke is my go to for sea sickness – that and a cheeky cat nap down below if I can get away with it!
