Jessie Atkinson

Jessie is a colour blind sailor and jumped-up ship’s cook who has spent most of her adult life as a traditional seafarer. She has been involved in all aspects of the industry, starting as a deckhand and bosun’s mate on the square-riggers over a decade ago.

Having sailed professionally on ships of all sizes, from 40′ gaff cutters to 150′ barques, Jessie has since moved on to vessel support and marine coordination (although she’d still be happier scurrying up the rigging while dinner’s in the oven…)
