New RYA environmental chief

Jane Swan  is the new head of the RYA/BMF Green Blue environmental awareness campaign


She takes over from Sarah Brown (formerly Black), who is moving to

Scotland from Hamble to take up the post of Regional Advisor. Sarah sailed to

Scotland in her Nic 32 to get married and tells her story of how she

became Mrs Brown in the current January issue of Yachting Monthly,

“Honeymoon cruise”.

Sarah will also continue working on the Green Blue database and keeping a watching brief on environmental issues relating to boating in Wales and Northern Ireland.

Jane Swan, who starts on January 1, is currently partnerships officer and has been acting project manager during Sarah’s sailing sabbatical earlier this year.
