Meet The Writers


Danielle Berclouw

Dutch Danielle has spent over a decade working on everything from creaky classics to carbon fibre racing machines as either chief or second stew.

Aside from the Antibes- Antigua circuit she’s also sailed to spots like Sudan and South Georgia, both on yachts that have won prizes but also onboard boats that ran aground or forgot to bring enough fuel! She recently made the move ashore and now lives in Palma Mallorca with a chocolate labrador that likes to bark at lapping waves. Palma’s STP is where she keeps her ear to the ground so she can scribble down her thoughts and findings on the latest yachting trends and industry changes.
