Claire packed up and moved to Seattle almost seven years ago and has not started to regret it yet. She is a professional dancer with roots in both Europe and on the East Coast, and really caught the boat bug last summer, after spending some sunny time out in the San Juans. Since then she has been volunteering with the Center for Wooden Boats, as well as working for Argosy Cruises, and pretty much seizing any available opportunity to be on the water, because that is her happy place. She aspires to be something of a jack-of-all-trades of boating and will circumnavigate the world one day. She will also never get tired of talking to you about cats.
