Champion Women: Wendy Tuck
It's time to celebrate! Australian Wendy Tuck is now the first woman ever to win the Clipper Round-the-World Yacht race.
Tuck was shy about celebrating her victory, saying, "I hate banging on about women...I just do what I do but I am very proud."
It truly is an incredible accomplishment, something the race's cofounder Sir Robin Knox-Johnston said "could not be overestimated."
The 40,000-mile race featured 12 yachts in total and second place was also captured by a woman.
"There has never been a round-the-world sailing race where the leading skippers are women," said Knox-Johnston.
Tuck is clearly over the moon about her success, saying she was in shock by the win, but also joyful.
Her win is truly impressive and it's a great day to champion women in sport.
