Hannah Jenner

Champion Sailor

Hannah Jenner

Hannah Jenner is an experienced sailor, filmmaker and motivational speaker available for hire through Champions.

Growing up far from the sea, Hannah’s interest in sailing came about largely by chance, but upon having even the briefest taste of the sport she quickly realised that sailing might provide her with the opportunity to both experience and achieve truly amazing things.

In July 2008, aged 28, she became the first female to skipper in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, gaining a podium position overall. She had guided a team of amateur sailors around the world battling ferocious storms in 60ft seas during months of intense racing.

During this race, Hannah saved a crew member’s life after he fell overboard in the Southern Indian Ocean in the pitch black and slipped out of his life jacket, a moment she credits as her greatest achievement.

After returning from this race, Hannah spoke to many audiences, including the staff of a large pharmaceuticals company, RAF fighter pilots and whisky distillery workers on the subjects of managing change, motivating a team during tough times and dealing with conflict and crisis.

Not one to rest on her laurels, Hannah set herself the challenge of running the 2009 New York marathon – a gruelling feat at the best of times and even more so when you have just four months for training, but she completed the 26.2 mile run in five hours.

A brilliant motivational speaker for any event, Hannah is ideal for both business and community functions – her passion and personality make her speeches truly memorable whilst her experiences are utterly unique and inspirational.
