From winning at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games to being triple champion of the world in 470 and being named Rolex World Sailor of the Year 2021, Hannah Mills has disembarked as part of the crew in SailGP. Discover her leadership role onboard and her drive. 

It was 1996 when Sir Ben Ainslie, who had just returned home from the Olympic Games with his silver medal, met young Hannah Mills. At the time, she was training at her local sailing club, and he gave a speech that encouraged her to reach the Olympic Games. Since that moment, it was about turning that dream into a reality and sailing in the Olympics. 

“What I love most about sailing is the performance element. For me it’s all about being driven to be the best you can be, but also for the team.”
