Ellen MacArthur

Founder, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Dame Ellen MacArthur made yachting history in 2005, when she became the fastest solo sailor to circumnavigate the globe, and remains the UK’s most successful offshore racer ever. She is a founder of the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, set up in 2003, a charity which takes young people aged between 8-24 sailing to help them regain their confidence on their way to recovery from cancer, leukaemia and other serious illnesses. After retiring from sailing, Ellen founded the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, with the aim to accelerate the transition to a regenerative, circular economy.
