Ingrid Hale

Ingrid has been boating since a toddler and sailing since she was 16. She started on Hobie Cats and competed in many National and World Championships as well as being a keen windsurfer.

She moved onto “big boats” in the form of racing yachts and enjoyed many successful campaigns on a GP42. Her love of all things to do with the ocean led her to Marketing and Communications in the world of sailing; managing three Cape Town stopovers for the Volvo Ocean race (Puma and Team SCA), and managing the Communications for the GP42 campaign, "Lion of Africa Vulcan" in the 2017 Cape 2 Rio Yacht race.

Merging her love of sailing with her passion for publishing, Ingrid has produced the annual magazine for RCYC: SAIL, the SA Nautical Almanac and the South African Ocean Racing Legacy book.

Ingrid’s 25 years of experience in magazine publishing on titles such as Cosmo, Marie Claire, House and Leisure, Elle and Elle Decoration has provided a solid platform to develop the recently launched Sail + Leisure – South Africa’s first sailing lifestyle magazine.
