Something about her that you don't know: Sophie is a keen surfer and you'll usually find her in a wetsuit in stopover locations around the world. Sophie has worked on several of the most well known boats in the world, including the Maxis Wildthing, Brindabella and Shockwave.
Who she is: Sophie made a big impression in her debut Volvo Ocean Race campaign onboard Team SCA in 2014-15 where she was one of the all-female team’s star performers, and went on to win the Hans Horrevoets Rookie Award at the end of the race. She has previously raced on some of the world’s most renowned sailing yachts including Wildthing, Brindabella and Shockwave, competed in four Sydney-Hobart Races – and now returns for a second consecutive Volvo Ocean Race, this time as part of a mixed crew.
