Tamara is an incredibly good sailor and a great person to have on the team. She has a lot of energy and helps me with catering, which is the worst job (laughs).

When we’re maneuvering or in port, I’m the pit or trimming the headsails. Offshore, it’s the same. Every time we do a maneuver, even if it’s in the middle of the night, we all wake up and do the maneuver with the same people and in the same positions.

Once we sail offshore, I’m a bit of a sergeant (laughs). I have the most experience in big teams on the ocean. Out there, you have to be very strict, for example, about guards. Even in our small team, I think it’s very important to maintain that.
