Sarah-Quita Offringa nominated for 2017 Rolex World Sailor of the Year

She is one of the most successful professional windsurfers of all time. Sarah-Quita Offringa has been nominated for 2017 Rolex World Sailor of the Year.

Sarah-Quita Offringa was born on July 4, 1991, in Oranjestad, Aruba. She says she started windsurfing because she lives on an island surrounded by water and great winds.

Initially, Offringa didn’t like it because “the equipment was quite heavy and as I was quite young. It was hard to get the sail out of the water.”
