Sailor Chick of the Week
Our coverage of the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race is presented by Musto, Official Apparel Provider to the VOR.
We’ve had a massive crush on Minista and Figarista Cecile Laguette since she first snuck onto the scene years ago, and her quiet determination and excellent seamanship in those tough classes finally turned into an international gig when she joined Team AkzoNobel a couple legs ago. She’s a fascinating human, and not just for her racing prowess – Cecile is also a Naval Architect with experience inside the Cup as well as the VOR Boatyard. Former Boatyard boss and current VOR exec Nick Bice caught up with Ceci before the start of the big Southern Ocean leg in this 7 minute video interview. Enjoy.
