Tune in to the latest episode of the Lessons Learned Podcast series by UK Sailmakers featuring special guest Marie Rogers, a trailblazing figure in the world of offshore racing and advocate for diversity in sailing.

As the skipper of the Alan Andrews-designed 56-foot sailboat, GOOD TROUBLE, in the 2023 Transpacific Race, Marie Rogers is a force to be reckoned with. Her passion and determination shine in her dedication to fostering diversity in the sport through many endeavors, including co-founding the Offshore Sailing Outreach (ORO) non-profit organization.
