Currently employed as Operations & Business Development Manager for Flamingo Yacht Charters, Hazel has a wealth of experience working in the Tourism and Leisure sector. With a degree in International Business & Modern Languages she is well equipped to understand and deal with the needs of visitors to Scotland.  Speaking multiple languages, she enjoys meeting people from all around the world and introducing them to the magic of Scotland. She has travelled extensively teaching sailing & windsurfing in Australia, Greece & Turkey, and running resort operations in Canadian ski resorts in the winter months.

She also has a solid background in marketing which she strengthened whilst working for a major news agency in London and New York. In addition to this, she has a valuable appreciation of the importance of safety standards in the workplace and offshore which she gained whilst working for an incident investigation company providing consultancy services and safety courses to many well-known blue-chip companies.

Sailing on the Clyde from an early age enjoying both racing and family holidays on a variety of yachts, she has an in-depth knowledge of the fabulous anchorages, bays, wildlife and scenic locations that Scotland’s waters have to offer. She loves nothing more than to encourage others to come and Sail Scotland themselves!
