About Nikki:


Nikki Henderson is one of the UK’s leading offshore sailors of her generation. She has built her career using sailing as a platform for her other passions: building competitive teams; experiencing raw unfiltered nature; promoting meaningful causes. In 10 years she has changed lives, swung opinions and proven that being young or female does not, and should not hold you back.

We first got to know Nikki when she joined the La Vagabonde crew to support Greta Thunberg and help promote her message.

Nikki’s blogs during the voyage captivated us and were a joy to read both for sailors and non-sailors alike. Her writing broke down the barriers between land and sea. She pulled us in, off our couches and into the cockpit, to share magic of the ocean with her. The daily updates she sent out were almost an addiction for those three weeks. It was this rare ability – both her writing, but also the rare character behind the words, that cemented what was to become a long standing friendship with the Outremer team.
