Elyse Robin-Boulanger

Hey! My name is Elyse, I am a Canadian environmental engineer & sailor currently in Sydney Harbour. I have done a lot of regattas, usually as a bow person, and lately I have gotten more into cruising and deliveries. I have just gotten back to Australia after sailing from Newcastle to New Caledonia on a Bluewater 420, and before that I brought a J/99 back to Sydney after the Pittwater to Coffs Harbour regatta. I would love to join a boat for the race or for a delivery before or after the race! I have completed the theory for the Safety & Sea Survival course, just missing the wet drills now.
