At just the tender age of 28, kiwi sailor Bianca Cook embarked on the journey of a lifetime.
As a member of the Turn the Tide on Plastic team, Bianca sailed around the world competing in the Volvo Ocean Race.
With an eye on leading an all-New Zealand crew in the next edition of the famous race, Bianca Cook has hundreds of thousands of sailing miles under her belt despite being so young.
D'Arcy Waldegrave talks to Bianca about the influence her late-mother had on her growing up, her drive to see more women compete in sailing and her ambition to keep our oceans clean.
