This guest post is written by one of my super hardcore level one training crew mates, Yana Domina. Yana is a feisty Russian and possibly one of the strongest women I’ve ever met (on so many levels). Yana is a geophysicist and lives and works on a research ship. She’s going to be crew on the 17/18 Clipper Race and is a just learning to sail. She recently did her Day Skipper course with First Class Sailing in Southampton.
