Elsa has competed in numerous races of international prestige, having twice won the Spanish match racing championship, and a ladies cup of the Principe de Asturias Trophy. She is currently cruising, her hobby since she was a child, along with her experience as a Project Manager in the shipyard are the main reasons why she was invited as a speaker at this seminar.
