Diversity in Yachting: Deckhand Sol Velasco, PART ONE

May 27, 05:00 PM
Sol Velasco is a seasoned deckhand and the first female Salvadorian deckhand in the yachting industry.

Sol has been a deckhand for 7 years. Early in her career, she did attempt an interior position, and knew early on she belonged on deck. Luckily for Sol, she had a female Captain to take her under her wing, share her knowledge, and encourage her to continue on her deckhand journey.

Sol enjoys diving and yoga. A fun fact about Sol is that she was a TV show host in El Salvador for extreme sports and adventure shows! Follow Sol Velasco on Instagram @sol_la_marinera
