Strong ties to Sydney’s working harbour eventually drew her back where she founded and operated well known commercial fleet H2O Taxis for ten years. She is the co-owner of the successfully campaigned Sparkman and Stephens classic racing yacht Komatsu Azzurro, a story becoming legendary in ocean racing circles.
