Magdalena Żuchelkowska (née Talar :))
Yachtmaster, motor cruiser skipper, SRC radio operator
Went sailing on the Baltic for the first time at the age of sixteen, and fell in love with the sea. It got worse: she began spending several months a year at sea. Took part in the women’s regatta around the world at the age of twenty-five. Crossed the Atlantic with her sister Małgorzata (Cabo Verde to the Caribbean – Santa Lucia) aboard Mantra 28, a 28-footer.
Founded her own sailing company in 2006. Organises sailing trips with her husband Adam. She and her husband purchased their first seagoing vessel – the s/y Geronimo. They spent seven years aboard this brave 38-footer, sailing many miles, gaining experience, and sightseeing all of Europe.
Has extensive experience as a professional skipper in Greece.
Participated in the Rolex Sydney-Hobart Race aboard s/y Katharsis II.
Circumnavigated the Nordkapp in 2016 during a family cruise.
Happy mother of the four-year-old Ola, whom she takes sailing whenever possible.
