After a decade working in media, Russel Stevens decided to reignite his boyhood love of sailing and was inducted into the LateSail team at the London Boat Show is 2012. Russel has enjoyed sailing in Croatia and Greece, Spain and of course the UK as well as quaffing the local rouge while meandering down the Canal du Midi.
After numerous years in the property industry, Nic set his sights on new horizons and joined the LateSail Team in 2009. Nic has especially enjoyed exploring and sailing around Greece, Sicily the Seychelles & the BVI. Sadly his plans to sail the world have been put on hold until his three little monsters learn to swim and can pay their own way.
Lynn has worked with charter guests planning their trips with the world's leading charter operators since 1992. She has excellent first hand knowledge of the most popular cruising grounds, and is our long haul specialist having chartered numerous times throughout the Caribbean including BVI, St Martin, and the Grenadines.
Growing up sailing in a small seaside town just north of Boston, Carly has always had a passion for sailing and a life on the water. Carly joined the LateSail team in 2014, and has focused her love of travel and sailing into providing clients with the best service in finding the perfect yacht for their dream charter holiday.
Sales/After Sales
Kyle supports both sales and aftersales. Before joining LateSail, the idea of sailing was pretty alien to him. However after getting a taste for it when completing his Competent Crew course in 2018, he is hooked. Kyle has some great Sardinia tips after visiting on a week-long charter; he also visited Trogir in Croatia for a short stay.
Creative Marketing
Anna is our creative and social marketing mastermind. When the red hot deals get released she is responsible for making sure they reach LateSail followers before anybody else. Our website, email broadcasts, Facebook and Twitter pages would be very empty and boring places without her.
Another integral member of the LateSail team, Lucy is responsible for paying the bills and keeping things on track. Lucy grew up and continues to live in Whitstable, from where she oversees finances for all LateSail offices.
