Our Team

Home > Our Team

We’re a team of experienced marketing professionals, with a passionate interest in the marine industry.

Small, yet perfectly formed, the Fastnet team are well equipped to excel at a wide range of projects, big or small.  Our friendly, hands-on approach to marketing means that we really get to know our clients and the challenges they face within their business.

We feel that it’s our focus on innovative designs, excellent customer service, attention to detail and efficient delivery that set us apart from our competitors.

Sarah Leverton

Managing Director

Sarah founded the company back in 2010, and since then has tirelessly molded and nurtured it into becoming one of the few marketing agencies to solely specialise in the marine & outdoor sector.  Sarah will be your main point of contact during your project. 

When not wrestling website projects into shape, Sarah can be found sailing her Mini Transat racing yacht, or writing her ‘On The Water’ column for Cornwall Today magazine.
