Founder & CEO / Publishing Editor in Chief

Ingrid has been boating since a toddler and sailing since she was 16. She started on Hobie Cats and competed in many National and World Championships. A keen windsurfer too, she moved onto “big boats” in the form of a racing yacht and enjoyed many successful campaigns on a GP42. Her love of all things to do with the ocean led her to Marketing and Communications in the world of sailing, managing 3 x Cape Town Stopovers for the Volvo Ocean race (Puma and Team SCA), and managing the Communications for the GP42 campaign, Lion of Africa Vulcan in the Cape to Rio Yacht race. She has merged her passion for sailing with her passion for publishing to produce the annual magazine for RCYC SAIL, the SA Nautical Almanac and the South African Ocean Racing Legacy book. Her 25 years of experience in magazine publishing on titles such as Cosmo, Marie Claire, House and Leisure, Elle and Elle Decoration has provided a solid platform to develop Sail + Leisure.
