Sofie VT Madsen

Additionally, I work as a head sailing coach in Denmark at my local sailing club, Yachtklubben Furesøen (YF), with sailors of all ages from Danish and international backgrounds. Besides being a head trainer, my work as an instructor focuses on giving first impressions to new sailors so everyone feels welcomed and included. In addition to working at YF, I am a coach at Watergames, where I teach individuals and groups in danish or english to get The Certificate Of Competence. Being a coach has allowed me to teach and share my skills for my competencies to expand. Furthermore, I am an educated instructor through The Danish Sailing Union, have a Yachtskipper of 1. degree certificate, am an educated lifeguard and have first aid. Moreover, I have started a collaboration with The Danish Sailing Union as a co-teacher to help facilitate instructor courses that help increase communication and training levels in danish sailing clubs.

Crewing Experience:

Hi, my name is Sofie (21 years old) from Denmark. I am currently living in Brisbane as I am on an exchange semester at Queensland University of Technology until December. In Denmark, I have been an elite sailor since I was 13 years old and a part of Team Danmark until I started at my university in 2020. I started sailing in Optimist when I was ten years old. Since, I have sailed multiple dinghies such as Zoom8, Tera, 29er, and Europe Class. I have participated in many regattas, from local to European and world championships. Two years ago, I switched to keelboats as I have bad hips and knees. I have mostly sailed the J70, where I participated in the European championship last fall. I have tried all crew positions onboard, but most frequently, I have been the skipper, tactician, or front-decker. While staying in Australia, my goal is to get out on the water to have a great time, meet new people and improve my skills.
