Profile

Name Susie Goodall

Born July 27th 1989

Nationality British

Country of entry United Kingdom

Susie Goodall is an offshore and ocean sailing instructor who was introduced to the sport at the age of 3 and raced Laser dinghies before moving into teaching. In recent times, she has been skippering a 60ft sail training/expedition yacht in Scandinavia. She says: “When I was young, all holidays were spent sailing and my weekends were taken up racing Lasers, before I started teaching sailing on the Isle of Wight. I’ve spent a few years working in the superyacht industry before taking up sail training.”

She has won sponsorship from worldwide courier DHL and bought the Rustler 36 Ariadne, in which she completed a double Atlantic solo crossing in 2017 prior to returning to builder Rustler Yachts in Falmouth for a complete refit in preparation for the GGR. The yacht was displayed at the 2018 London International Boat Show where she was renamed DHL Starlight.

Susie Goodall is one of 7 entrants to have selected the rugged Rustler 36 class yacht to compete in the GGR. In 2016, the yacht underwent an initial refit prior to Susie completing a solo transatlantic passage to the Caribbean and back. This experience gave Susie the opportunity to tailor the boat to her exact requirements, and the modifications, which include a protective doghouse over the companionway and forward end of the cockpit, were completed during a final refit at the Rustler Yachts yard in Falmouth where she was built.
