Thalassa Magenta Racing
The first all-female GC32 team, Thalassa Magenta Racing in partnership with the Magenta Project, make their debut in the Extreme Sailing Series™ in Lisbon. The new team will race with six crew members, as opposed to five on the all-male boats, and the Canadian-flagged catamaran will be skippered by New Zealand Olympian Sharon Ferris-Choat.
Thalassa Magenta Racing in partnership with the Magenta Project aims to give female sailors opportunities and pathways to compete at the highest performance levels of the sport. The team’s entry into the Lisbon Act is part of a long-term ambition to create an all-female crew capable of being competitive in the Extreme Sailing Series.
