When I found myself back in yachting after a long and unplanned break, I knew that finding consistent support would be my number one priority in helping to manage my mental health and relationships on board. A few months down the line and a busy season nearing the end, it has been by far the best investment I have ever made in myself and my future. Karine is unique in having experienced life on board, with heightened emotions of living in close quarters for long periods of time, as well as having dealt with the eclectic bunch of people that make up your crew; making explaining day to day frustrations that much easier, which is something I didn’t know I needed. Together we have focused on my core values, setting personal boundaries, accepting feedback (the good and bad) all which has made a monumental difference in my working relationships, self-confidence and overall personal life. Karines support and guidance has played the most significant role in my success this season and I cannot thank her enough for the incredible time and effort she puts into everything she does. I feel valued and appreciated as a person, which in turn leaves me forever grateful. I am proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and I look forward to what’s ahead. I can only hope more crew take the time to invest in themselves as there is no one more important than yourself. Thank you Karine.
