Tessa Pearl.

Did M.A. in fine Art and worked for too long as an artist. Discovered Tall Ships and became addicted. Worked my way up to rigger. Involved in rigging Pelican of London (another tall ship) and sailed to Caribbean on her shakedown voyage.
Just involved with the refit of the Brig ‘Prince William’ (now Rah Naward) and sailed with the Pakistan Navy to Gibraltar (first female to sail with them).
