Jessica Watson joins the Deckee team

I’m very excited to introduce myself as Deckee’s newest team member and to join the Deckee community!

Australia’s marine community have been very supportive of my adventures and now I want to help make boaties’ lives a little easier.

You might know me from my solo, non-stop voyage around the world in 2010. But you might not know that I grew up on a boat with my family, cruised the Pacific Ocean, sailed to the Subantarctic, raced in Europe and competed in two Sydney to Hobart yacht races.

Boating and sailing is a huge part of my life. I particularly love wooden boats and deserted anchorages, and I’m passionate about Australia’s local sailing and boating clubs.

I love the boating community’s generosity and honest, hard-working attitude. I love the fantastic characters you get to meet along the way at anchorages, marinas and yacht clubs.

Word-of-mouth advice is so important to boaties, and I want to help give the marine community a platform to share that advice and knowledge online.

My role with Deckee is Communications Manager and I look forward to doing everything I can to engage with Australia’s boaties and marine businesses.

I'd love to hear your feedback and ideas so please get in touch with Mike and I if there is anything we can do to assist.

– Jess
