Since childhood I was going on cruises with my family, where I was slowly gathering experience as a sailor.
Over the years I’ve visited numerous islands and bays, not only those which are popular, but also those for
which most people have no knowledge about. Through those experiences I’ve also gained the knowledge about
the navigation, anchoring, mooring and all those little things necessary for life on a boat. In elementary
school I’ve started to train sailing in the yacht club “Galeb” and few years after I’ve joined the crew of
the yacht club “Neverin”. In 2012, I’ve started working as a sailboat skipper and in that way started to
share my experience and landscape discoveries with everyone who wants to enjoy the beauties of the Adriatic
sea. Since 2017, I cooperate as a lecturer for company “Navticni tecaji” from Slovenia at the courses for
boat leader licenses, and as a teacher at the skipper academy practical trainings. Since 2018 I cooperate
with “NAS” sailing center from Krk, Croatia, as a skipper, as well as theoretical and practical instructor
at variety of sailing courses, from beginners course through navigation course to the skipper training.
I became a vegetarian when I was 10 and at age of 23 I’ve upgraded my diet choice to veganism. I’m trying my best to live my everyday life according to Yogic principles, which are great providers of knowledge and awareness in shaping my moral and ethical views. I’m about to become yoga instructor according to Yoga in Daily life System.
An extra person on your sailing trip to make all your cares float away!
My name is Helena and it is my duty to make sure you are happy and satisfied with delicious ingredients I will provide for you, and the meals I will prepare in a professional manner to keep you well fed. I am a fan of cooking and healthy living, which is a great combination that will certainly bring a smile to your face. Your menus will comprise Mediterranean- or Asian-style full-bodied vegan meals with refreshing drinks. I will serve them proficiently and clean up everything afterwards, so forget about wasting your time in the kitchen while the sun and the sea are calling you! My sole aim is to make you feel carefree, comfortable, and content, therefore before the trip we will discuss about your wishes concerning meals and leisure activities that can be organised on land or on board. The cooking and cleaning services are provided with great care and organised in such a way as not to interfere with your holiday. Depending on your wishes, I can transform into a chameleon or be in charge of entertainment. In any case, everything you need will be done before you need it!
