Associate Anne Lloyd, Director
Member since 2019
Appointed March 2019 to fill an unexpired term--Term Expires Nov. 2019
Anne was born in Canada and moved to the UK in her pre-teen years with her parents who were British. She graduated from the University of Durham where she met her husband, Jonathan. After marrying Jonathan, she attended law school in London, became a Barrister specializing in Criminal Law and practiced in London as well. Since Jonathan was a career Infantry Officer, Anne gave up law and accompanied him on a variety of tours of duty in West Germany, the US and other parts of the UK. During that period, she did a variety of jobs including 10 years of government service working with the unemployed.
Sailing and cruising have been vital parts of Anne’s life. She and Jonathan first cruised the Mediterranean on her father-in-law’s yacht before becoming owners in the Sunsail program. Since 2008, they have owned their own yacht. Their current yacht is a Malo 42. Anne handles technical and maintenance issues on the boat, servicing engines and systems. She oversaw the refit to prepare Sofia for their circumnavigation which began in June 2014.
Anne and Jonathan set off on their circumnavigation from the UK to the Caribbean, through Panama across the Pacific via Galapagos, Marquesas, Tuomotos, Society Islands Samoa, Tonga and Fiji to New Zealand. The following year they cruised Fiji, New Caledonia, Australia and Tasmania. In 2017, they crossed the Indian Ocean to South Africa and then in 2018 sailed up the South Atlantic via St. Helena to the Caribbean. Since then, they have cruised the eastern US coast and currently, they are in the Bahamas preparing for an Atlantic crossing to Bermuda, the Azores and the UK.
In addition to membership in SSCA, Anne is a Roving Rear Commodore in the Ocean Cruising Club, a Lady Associate member of the Royal Yacht Squadron and member of the Royal Cruising Club and Warsash Sailing Club.
