With yachting parents, Carly’s whole life has revolved around the yachting industry. She tested crew-life for herself before realising that her talents were better fitted to land-based positions.

Carly is now a leading name in the yachting industry. Carly is based in Antibes and speaks fluent French. She is an adventurer who loves to travel off the beaten track.
