Sophie began sailing at the age of 12 and was introduced to sailing by her father. Over the last 18 years she has had a very successful sailing career as a professional skipper, racing, dinghy and RYA Yachtmaster Instructor. Sophie has skippered an all-female team in two Fastnet races and four RORC 600's.

Sophie took part in the Clipper 2017-18 race, joining just before the mighty Pacific Leg 6, Sophie caught the bug and stayed on board and went on to gain third overall!

"The North Pacific Ocean was the best part for me! The wild conditions it presented to us were incredible. The teamwork aspect was very rewarding, watching all the smiles onboard as we roared across mountains of waves" 

When Sophie isn't spending time on the water she enjoys skiing, climbing in Wales and spending time with her dog - Roxy.
