In the run up to the 2017 season getting underway we will be introducing the current Trinity Sailing Foundation team. Today we caught up with another member of our sea staff — Emma Broadhurst.
What is your role at Trinity Sailing?
I have been with Trinity since the start of 2016 when I joined as mate on Leader. I will be doing the same again this coming season. Right now I am busy helping to get her ready for her first trip in April.
What did you do prior to joining the team?
I have worked on a number of other traditional sailing vessels, most recently as bosun on a square-rigged vessel doing long ocean trips.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I really enjoy meeting a wide-range of people, and seeing so many new spaces over a short space of time. I generally just love everything about sailing.
Where is your favourite sailing destination?
It has to be the west coast of Scotland, visiting all the different islands. The scenery is always very dramatic, there’s so much wildlife and there is always somewhere new to explore. I am looking forward to Leader’s long stint up there this summer.
When you’re not sailing, what else do you enjoy doing?
Sailing, sailing, and more sailing. It’s pretty much all I like to do. When I am not doing that I like travelling to and exploring the places I have sailed to.
