State Street Marathon Sailing
One Team. One Goal.
One Human Race.
We don’t shy away from a challenge, or from helping drive positive change — in our company, our industry or our communities. So we’re proud to sponsor a new gender-equal sailing team as they compete to represent the United States in a first-of-its kind mixed-gender marathon sail racing event at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
Changing the Game
Mixed Marathon Sailing
The 2024 Paris Olympics will introduce a new sailing competition to help advance gender equality in the sport. Featuring a one-woman, one-man team, “Mixed Marathon Sailing” is a three-day endurance race demonstrating the power of diversity in leadership and the importance of resiliency.
As a world-champion sailor, Francesca competed in the 2012 and 2016 Olympic games, and in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018.
Jesse has completed multiple trans-oceanic races as a member of record-setting and world championship sailing teams.
A competitive sailor and rower with World and National Championships, Malcolm is driven by a passion for problem-solving.
