She is one of the most successful professional windsurfers of all time. Sarah-Quita Offringa has been nominated for 2017 Rolex World Sailor of the Year.
Sarah-Quita Offringa was born on July 4, 1991, in Oranjestad, Aruba. She says she started windsurfing because she lives on an island surrounded by water and great winds.
Initially, Offringa didn't like it because "the equipment was quite heavy and as I was quite young. It was hard to get the sail out of the water."

Antoine Albeau and Sarah-Quita Offringa have raced to victory in the 2017 Hvide Sande PWA World Cup, held in Denmark.
The French cannon continued his winning streak on the PWA Slalom World Tour, and with two events to go, he holds a small, yet manageable lead over Matteo Iachino.
Four consecutive bullets were enough for Albeau to celebrate his third back-to-back event year this season. Iachino won the last race but had to settle for runner-up.
