BOAT: This Race is Female
Even as a child, Sanni was eagerly looking for challenges and adventures. Water was her element. She loved being on the ocean and dreamed of one day becoming an offshore sailor.
She started out on small dinghies. As a teenager, she was determined to maximize her athletic abilities and represent Germany at the Olympics. And she did everything she could to achieve her goal. She trained hard. Tirelessly, every day. She enhanced every little detail, worked on herself, on the boat’s performance and on impeccably executed teamwork. 13 years later, she qualified for the Olympics - and won the silver medal in the 49erFX.
Yet, she has never lost sight of offshore sailing. With courage and determination, she is now embarking on her second sailing career: as an international offshore sailor. She wants to become the first German woman to win the "Solitaire du Figaro" - the most competitive sailing race in the world. And then? She sets sail for her next dream: the „Vendée Globe“, an around the world race.
