Carragh grew up in a sailing town in Devon on the South coast of the UK. She started sailing and racing from a young age at her local sailing club and teaching at the sailing school. With salt in her blood and a strong desire to work and live on the ocean, she chose to become a Marine Engineer. She began her career over 10 years ago with the Royal Navy, and since then, Carragh has spent the past 6 years acquiring experience and knowledge on various large yachts. In her spare time, she enjoys kitesurfing, sailing, diving, and traveling.
