Bio:

Although taking on her first Volvo Ocean Race, Martine Grael – an Olympic gold-medalist at Rio 2016 – is no stranger to the tortuous eight-month competition. Her father, Torben Grael – as well as being Brazil’s most successful Olympic sailor, with five medals – has competed in the race three times, and won the 2008-09 edition as skipper of Ericsson 4.
