I’m Annabel and my husband Matt and I both love being on the water. We’ve both worked on boats in the past. I dabbled for a few years, he’s an experienced, qualified captain who has been in the industry his whole working life (for more info see our post here on past lives).
We met working on an amazing 50m private motor yacht, as part of a crew of 12. A few years later we decided to settle down in his native Australia and start a family.
We have our two beautiful daughters, Tilly and Sasha who, right now, are 9 and 7. We’ve lived in Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays for nearly 10 years, in a beautiful house that we built in the rainforest.
However in 2017 we decided that we weren’t seeing enough of each other or getting out on the water enough.
So we decided to jack it all in and go sailing for a bit.
And to live, we hope, an audacious life.
