Helen is the experienced, friendly and knowledgeable skipper of Zuza.
Having been a professional sailor for 20 years, Helen has gained some diverse experience on the water. She has worked as a charter skipper, for several sailing schools and sail training organisations, and has gained multiple qualifications in all things sailing along the way.
With untouched wildlife, dramatic coastlines and good food, skippering expedition yacht Zuza is a dream come true for Helen.
Out of season, Helen continues to keep her hand-in teaching at sailing schools in the Uk and when she’s not at sea, she spends her time around the west coast, generally up a large hill walking, running, biking, or skiing should the climate allow!
When she is not skippering Zuza, Helen’s relief Skipper and trusted friend Olly Cotterell takes the helm. Olly moved to Oban just over two years ago after falling in love with the West Coast of Scotland. He had sailed here previously skippering charters in the area and has also now extensively explored the Hebrides on his own yacht.
With their welcoming nature, love of the sea and knowledge of the area, you will certainly be in safe hands with Helen or Olly as your Skippers!
