Women Crush Wednesdays
Anne L’Hirondelle Is in one word: Incredible. She is a world traveler, photographer, diver, sailor, artist, kayaker, wife, mother of two successful men, and grandmother to four grandchildren. It was love at first flight when she met her husband while jumping out of his airplane for a sky dive, and before taking up travel full time, she worked alongside her husband operating a small courier airline.
Anne has visited almost 50 countries, and all seven continents. She has kayaked both Polar seas, as well as up and down the BC coast. She has her advanced open water dive certificate, and is about to complete a dry suit course in Victoria, BC. She has seven sky dives under her belt. She successfully crewed on several yachts, until having her own boat with a primarily all women’s crew. She has won multiple awards for sailing, and was first in her division in the annual Swiftsure Race, and is the founding member and former commodore of the Victoria Women’s Sailing Association.
