Today, 8 March International Women’s Day, we celebrate achievements of women across nations. And salute the Officers of the Indian Sailing Vessel Tarini on making history. The crew serves as an encouragement to all women and girls that there is no limit to what we can achieve. We wish Lieutenant-Commander Vartika Joshi and her crew all the best on their final leg to Indian to complete circumnavigating the globe. Lt Cmdr Joshi beautifully stated: “the ocean knows no gender”.
Our former President Nelson Mandela showed us how sports unites people, nations and the world. As SA Sailing Women and Girls we aim to make sailing accessible to every woman and girl in our country. Shama Nathoo
