Dominique Afacan

Dominique writes about all things luxury for, South China Morning Post, Billionaire, Boat International and many more. After a five-year stint living over in Hong Kong, she decided to swap junks in the South China Sea for river boats in Putney. Three years into her London adventure, she's already found time to slot in trips to race at the St Barths Bucket, sink tequila shots at the Monaco Yacht Show and kiss the America’s Cup in Bermuda. Earlier this year she took a polar plunge in Antarctica, a chilly but invigorating career highlight.
