Canary Islands native Tara Pacheco joins Spain SailGP Team for Season 2, as the team expands with four new signigs for the campaign.
Born in 1988, Pacheco started sailing in an Optimist at a very early age, and she showed her talent early with various successes during her youth. Victories in the European and World Championships in the 470 class furthered her development and resulted in a place in Spain's squad for the 2012 Olympic Games.
She also represented her country at Rio 2016, and is currently qualified for the Tokyo Olympics with Florian Trittel on Nacra17.
Pacheco has a degree in Nautical Studies and Maritime Transport from the University of Santander. Environmentally minded, she is highly motivated and self-demanding in all aspects of her life, always ready for a challenge and pushing the limits to achieve her dreams.
