Mate, MedPIC, PADI Diving Instructor
Claire’s passion for ocean sailing started during a gap year between high school and college. She was a student onboard Argo in the Fall of 2017, traveling across the Indian Ocean from Australia to South Africa. Following that voyage she lived in Cape Town for five months, working toward her RYA Yachtmaster certification.
While in school at the University of Virginia Claire joined the UVA sailing team and worked as a skipper for Action Quest over the summer months. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in systems engineering, Claire was thrilled to start working for Sea|mester full time and pass on her love for the open ocean to future students
