There are three passions that define Patricia’s lifestyle; the water, athletics and helping others achieve their goals. As a youngster she enjoyed swimming, diving, surfing and water skiing. Her passion for the water led her to Massachusetts Maritime College, where she began her training to become a professional mariner. Following work as a ship’s officer for offshore gas and oil and raising her licence twice, she is now qualified to Captain any yacht on the water. Founding Aweigh Fitness has allowed her to share her knowledge and passion with companies, crews and charter guests to promote health and fitness and improve people’s health and wellbeing.
