Bianca Cook is a certified powerhouse. She’s logged over 70,000 offshore miles in recent years, racing all kinds of offshore boats and megayachts, most notably in the recent Volvo Ocean Race with the Turn The Tide on Plastic team. Now, she’s taking another huge step; she recently announced that she will be heading up a VO65 team for the next edition of the Ocean Race, New Zealand Ocean Racing. Just a few years ago, Bianca was a junior sailor. Maybe just like you.
