Sophie has been a keen sailor since childhood, and after many years of fully crewed sailing, Sophie has set herself the challenge of single handed racing for the next 2 years with support from the Lower Normandy Region and other commercial partners.
In 2006, with Voile Performance Manche Association, Sophie discovered keelboat racing and entered Basse-Normandie Team. Sailing the Tour de France à la Voile offered a great experience with the mix of short and coastal races between cities.
In 2014, she won the Bas-Normand youth award and it gave her the opportunity to sail the Figaro and participate in the French solo offshore championship for two editions (2015-2016). After an intense year, full of emotions, and good results, she is continuing with more determination to become a professional offshore sailor.
Aside from the Figaro circuit she works as a coach to be able to cover some costs of her campaign. Her coaching role has allowed her to build her schedule around the races.
Sophie hopes all her efforts will pay off this year with improving results and most of all, that she’ll find new commercial partners to springboard her off the starting line for this project and into the future.
I am very proud to wear the colors and values of The Magenta Project! For each of us it is a long process to access high-level sailing, and professional projects such as this, will help to create a pathway to a higher level.
