After many miles in small sailboats up and down the east coast of New Zealand, Gina de Vere and her husband Christian bought their first cruising boat in 2005, a steel hulled 40 foot monohull to take them on adventures through the Pacific to Australia, and onto Papua New Guinea where they created boat building projects and lived with the islanders. After sailing through Indonesia to Malaysia they sold their beloved sailboat and bought Stardancer, a Gib Sea 47', light, beamy boat in Australia (Joubert/Nivelet design). This happily meant they sailed through Indonesia again, enjoying more adventures in the South China Sea. They are currently based between Malaysia and Thailand.

Born in New Zealand Gina has been fulltime sailing  the world for the past 15 years. However, sailing was a huge change from the career Gina had enjoyed as university lecturer in marketing, innovation and entrepreneurship and CEO of her company, ‘Masters Consulting’. She continues her work as life coach and facilitator.  Gina’s newest adventure is as published author of the book, Blue Water Women: making the leap from landlubber to a life at sea. 

Join Gina de Vere in the South Seas and share some of her adventures, misadventures and lessons learned in 15 years of full time cruising on her 47.2 Gib Sea monohull, Stardancer.


The bar will be open as usual.
