A gifted sailor and writer, Emma has made the sea her life. She has double handed a small engineless sailboat across the Pacific Ocean, crewed and mated aboard tall ships. In 2021 she captained her own sailboat, Alacrity, from Jamaica to New England. She has spent the last year as mate aboard the storied Spirit of Bermuda. Emma captained Lyra in 2020-21 and is back for more in 2023.

Ask Emma about her first experience aboard Lyra, it's not what you'd think!

As time and seasons allow, Emma is giving Alacrity a thorough refit.  When the work is done and the time is right, she will sail far, far away.
