Julie Kidman“This ain’t no dress rehearsal”

Julie has notched up a lot of firsts as a women sailor. Helming her own 12’Skiff in the Interdominions, two-handed all-women keelboat racing, and women’s keelboat championships. Lucky enough to be introduced to the sport as a child she has sailed a wide range of dinghies, keelboats and multihulls. Most recently returning from another season sailing in the Pacific. Julie pretty much acts as skipper for the Great Escape operation; navigating the challenges of administration and marketing.

“OK it might seem like a marketing ploy but Oke Bay in the Bay of Islands is one of my favourite places.”
