WHO I AM
My name is Josipa Vlahovic. When I was a child, everybody called me Speedo, but now my family and friends call me Jope. I come from a beautiful country, a nautical paradise with 1.244 islands that will, hopefully, remain intact. The name of that paradise is Croatia. I first graduated from the Faculty of Economics, then from the Faculty of Physical Education - sailing course.
From the first moment I stepped on board, sailing became my great love. I have been working as a skipper for eight years, being one of a few professional female skippers in Croatia. I'm a member of one of the best female racing crews - BB crew. I have sailed a few times across the Mediterranean Sea, and a two-month long adventure across the Pacific Ocean has left an indelible imprint of happiness on me. My itineraries are published in renowned sailing magazines Nautica and Yachts.
