Charlotte has been a passionate sailor since before she could walk, and subsequently has faced the horrors of a naval architecture degree and such dubious delights as racing through the Southern Ocean. Her highlights, however, have all involved superyachts, exotic locations and a plentiful supply of rum. A former editor of Boat International magazine, she is currently technical editor at The Superyacht Report.
