Something about her that you don't know: Bianca grew up watching the Volvo Ocean Race fleet race into her hometown of Auckland. With a degree in graphic design, Bianca opted to pursue a career in sailing by dedicating five years of her life to working on superyachts and working towards her officer of the watch.
