First Mate & Stewardess Ashley McGowan
Raised in Ontario, Canada, Ashley sailed at her family’s lake cottage every summer and skied all winter. Racing the circuit at Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club where she was head instructor and race coach, Ashley climbed to an overall 17th in the infamous CORK Regatta, sailing Laser 2s.
Ashley is the true definition of a water baby and was able to swim before she could walk, so it seemed inevitable she would work on the water and already has extensive experience: She is CYA certified, a certified diver, US Sailing certified in basic keelboat sailing and is one exam away from having her BVI Boat Master License. Ashley was also the event director for the Pro-AM BEYC Regatta and enjoyed many a day teaching both adults and children to sail having been head sailing instructor in various yacht clubs around the globe. Marine biology is also a passion for Ashley, who has undertaken the catching and tagging of sea turtles, reef checks, sea grass studies and fish ID surveys.
To add to her vast repertoire, Ashley has also completed the Dale Carnegie Toastmasters of London training and having worked at a dairy back home, she mastered ice cream churning skills – with some really weird and wonderful recipes!
In her spare time, Ashley enjoys music, sports and her real passion of sailing. About working on Viaggio, Ashley says Who could ask for a better office view
