SANNI BEUCKE // OFFSHORE SAILING 


"On the ocean we never think of the life we left behind. Because on the ocean our mind becomes clear of all these things and our pure emotions come to surface, the simpleness."

ABOUT SAILING

SAILING definition

The Figaro BENETEAU 3 is the first production foiling one-design monohull ever to be designed. With its distinguished design and a combination of technology and innovation, it offers high performance sailing and adventure.
The main regatta of the year is the La Solitaire du Figaro, which attracts millions of fans in France.

FOR THE LOVE OF SAILING

Sanni especially loves how she can immerse herself into another world while sailing. Out on the ocean everything that seemed so important ashore, now feels like miles away. Out there, all that matters is you, your boat and the weather. People are often so focused on the physical aspects of sailing that we forget how much we stand to gain from the sport – both socially and emotionally.
