Fitness for Offshore Sailors: Q&A with Liz Wardley; Ep 3

Liz Wardley explains what she would do differently to train for another Volvo Ocean Race

In our ongoing series of Q&A with Liz Wardley talks about what she learned from previous races about her fitness needs and how she would train the next time. Liz was a member of Team SCA for the 2014-5 Edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. She is working in the Volvo Ocean Race boatyard in Lisbon preparing for the 2017-8 Edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. Liz has also perfected the art of StandUp Paddle-boarding too as well as ocean kayaking; pretty much anything on the water.

Special thanks to Abby Ehler and The Magenta Project which was established following Team SCA and the 2014-5 Volvo Ocean Race. The Magenta Project aims to advance women in the sport of professional sailing, and promote inclusion, diversity and positive female role models in society at large.
