Lena Padukova – Professional Adventurer

As a professional adventurer, I value unique experiences, challenging routes, exotic, remote or extreme places and environments – while proper planning, effective execution and meticulous risk management all have to work together for a successful outcome. Sailing with David Hows on Ocean Gem has provided all of it, plus excellent possibilities to learn – and a great fun factor!

On our recent Trans-Tasman passage from Auckland to Southport, David again proved he is a great skipper, very competent, skilful and high-performing, but also respectful and patient. His organisational skills are exemplary; nothing is left to chance. He’s a competent leader and a great guy.

I highly recommend sailing with him to anyone, and especially those who are looking for true adventure sailing on a very well-equipped boat, with possibilities to learn from a pro. Lena Padukova, professional adventurer, Sweden. www.adrenalena.se
