Sailing Superstar Joins Making Waves

She might be small in stature, but our latest team member is a giant on the World Sailing stage.

For anyone who can’t recall the name Wendy Tuck, we're sure you will, once we remind you of some of her feats...

Wendy made history in 2018 when she became the first female skipper to win the Clipper Around the World race and  the first female skipper to win ANY around the world yacht race!

That same year, Wendy was awarded Australian Female Yachtswoman of the Year, the Australian Offshore Sailor of the Year, the CYCA’s Commodores Medal for Outstanding Seamanship, was also Nominated for Rolex World Sailor and the Ocean Racing Yacht person of the year – shared with Matt Allen.

In 2019 she skippered the iconic Maiden during her circumnavigation, raising awareness to the fact that 130 million girls do not have access to education.

Wendy has also taken part in 12 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Races.

‘I did a few days volunteering years ago with Making Waves and now am so excited that I will be training volunteers and getting out on the yachts.

It’s time to give back to the sailing world after it has been so good to me!

And, we’re so very proud to announce that Wendy has joined MWF as our new Sailing Operations Manager.

She is a powerhouse in the sailing world and brings a huge amount of expertise, energy, and enthusiasm to Making Waves.
