Meet the Team 2019 — Esme
The 2019 sailing season starts tomorrow. In the run up we have been introducing you to the current team here at the Trinity Sailing Foundation. Today with met up with a member of our crew, Esme…
What is your role at Trinity?
I’m the chef on Leader rejoining for a second season, or ‘cookie’ as nautical superstition dictates!
What are you most looking forward about the coming season?
Sailing with and meeting loads of new people and hearing the stories of their lives. There’s never a dull moment on Leader and you never know who you might meet. And definately exploring the Western Isles , Scotland is such a beautiful place to sail.
What’s your best piece of advice for someone who has never been sailing before?
Sea sickness tablets! Prevention is much easier than a cure. But don’t be put off even Lord Nelson suffered from sea sickness and look what he achieved.
Which is your favourite vessel in the Trinity fleet?
They are all beautiful boats with their own personalities but I love cooking on Leader and eating around the giant dinner table.
When you’re not sailing, what else do you enjoy doing?
I’ve just spent the winter snowboarding in Courchevel which was awesome but now I’m ready to hit the high seas again…
