On The Ocean Race Europe 2021, she will be on board the VO65 AkzoNobel as a trimmer. Today, she is an experienced ocean sailor, expert in a variety of fields, and has sailed over 55,000 miles, twice around the world.

In 2023, she will be taking part in The Ocean Race 2023 aboard Team Malizia. She is the only woman to have sailed all the legs of this round-the-world race, establishing herself as an emerging talent in the IMOCA world.
