Hannah Mills + Nick Dempsey.

Sailor + Coach.

Mum + Dad.

Hannah Mills is the most decorated female sailor in Olympic history, with two gold medals and a silver. A fierce campaigner on environmental issues in her role as IOC Sustainability Ambassador, she is also an advocate for women in sport and leads the female representation for INEOS Britannia in the Americas Cup and for the Emirates GB Sail GP team.

Alongside Hannah is her husband, Nick Dempsey who, until recently was coaching Team GB’s Olympic windsurfers. Nick has now taken a different path, looking after baby daughter, Sienna, while Hannah is back on the water.

Together, they talk about Nick’s decision to stop chasing his career and instead, travel the sailing circuit with Hannah and Sienna and why as a coach he can’t resist the urge to analyse the performance of Hannah’s racing team.

This four way conversation was recorded on 3rd February 2023.
