Sarah O'Kane

Housing Manager

S arah O'Kane, Housing Manager for AmericaOne has been a fixture on the Grand Prix yachting circuit since she started her company, Shorebase, some 15 years ago. Shorebase provides complete off-the-water support to yachting teams and campaigns.

O'Kane is an expert at organizing housing, chefs, food, vehicles, travel logistics and team clothing. She has done business all over the world and her client list reads like the Who's Who of international yachting campaigns. O'Kane comes well recommended by many of the AmericaOne sailing team, who have benefited from her management of accommodations and cooking at previous regattas.

O'Kane approached AmericaOne, as she wanted to add an America's Cup to her resume. She started working for the syndicate in October, 1998, and was the first working employee of AmericaOne in New Zealand where she embarked upon a housing search.

During the January-February sailing session Sarah performed the additional job role of New Zealand office manager, as well as food and housing manager. Needless to say, she was incredibly busy and contributed greatly to the successful training session in Auckland.

O'Kane enjoys high-performance trapeze dingy sailing, horseback riding, music concerts and the theatre. When not traveling to regattas, she lives in a beautiful old home on a hill above a beach in Wales, England.
