Who is the Sailor Girl?
Nic Douglass is a girl, who loves her sailing.
A multiple World and National Champion, Nic’s enthusiasm for the sport is infectious. Born in Sydney, but later growing up in country Australia, as one of few girls, the “Sailor Girl” was born. A life-long passion for sailing, Nic is all about sharing and growing the sport that we all love.
Join her on her adventures, and the adventures of so many other sailors, in her blog, in her videos, on social media, and on her radio show as she takes part in various events around Australia, and now the world.
On the water for the in port race and leg 7 start in Newport
Wow! Wasn’t the Volvo Ocean Race Newport stopover an event to be a part of, so lucky! Here are the adventures from on the water for the in port race, and the start of leg 7! Over 131,500 people were also a part of the action – one I will always remember, but I can’t wait for the next time I get to be involved with the Volvo Ocean Race!
A big thanks to my major supporters, Zhik and GAC Pindar as well as Bennett Yachting & VX One for the use of the boat to be out on the water, Riptide Racing for so much help while in the US and skipper Chris for sailing with me!
All footage is from GoPro Hero 4’s aside from the stock aerial overheads and start footage (thanks to Volvo Ocean Race Media), the VX One drone footage (thanks to the Bennett family), and the photos of me falling in (yes – what a muppet!), thanks to John Lincourt Photography.
A Sunset Media production to share our awesome sport – Enjoy, Sailor Girl xx
