THIS RACE IS FEMALE
women need more visibility
In sailing, in competitive sports - in all areas. To draw attention to this, Sanni is launching her new career in offshore sailing with the campaign #thisraceisfemale. Sanni wants to show that anything is possible. You just have to do it. Boundaries are there to be pushed - whether it's in your own head or in society.
women need role models
Role models inspire, motivate, and show new possibilities for one's own development. This is especially important for women because they can then see this kind of performance as achievable. This particularly applies in areas that are clearly dominated by men - such as offshore sailing. For Sanni, circumnavigator Ellen MacArthur was such a role model. Now she wants to be one herself for other women and girls. Sanni wants to help break out of old ways of thinking and empower women to set big goals for themselves.
EQUAL CHANCES AND RECOGNITION of WOMEN
Female sailors don't want to be treated differently because of their gender. They do the same job on the same boats. And they do it really well. Especially offshore, they can show what they've got. Because the long distances are all about willpower, willingness to take risks, the spirit of adventure and a strong mindset.
