Introductions and Farewells

Lucy helming Southern Child
After 6 years with Northern Child, Christian moves on to pastures new and we wish him every success and happiness in the future. Christian will join Performance Yacht Charter as an experienced skipper for some events in the future.
Lucy is on the helm of Performance Yacht Charter and is pleased to welcome James Richman and Debbi Booth to the Performance Yacht Charter Team.
James is to become the primary skipper of Northern Child with his partner Elise. Elise is French Canadian and is a qualified chef, so there will be some yummy food on Northern Child again. They set off last week on the passage south to St Tropez  and are looking forward to an exciting season.
Debbi will provide valuable support to Lucy, both on and off the water, as they develop and grow the business. Debbi has been racing on Southern Child since 2013 and has a depth of experience from sailing in the Southern Ocean and exploring Antartica to dingy sailing in the Solent and more recently working with the RYA as the Technical Coordinator; Racing.
