Blockheaded Advice from Hattie Rogers:

  1. Especially when you’re starting out, say yes to every opportunity.
  2. Keep enjoying your sailing. Otherwise, what’s the point?
  3. Remember: You have time! There’s no rush. Build a good foundation in your technical knowledge first.

Hattie Rogers is a foiling fiend — Find her on a Moth, Waszp, SailGP F50, ETF26 with the Athena Pathway, and hopefully soon the AC40 with the Women’s America’s Cup. Watch our interview with her, filmed at the RYA Dinghy Show, to find out how her engineering degree and technical background has helped her grow and carve out a rockstar career in the sport.
