My name is Madeleine Lithvall and I’m a 30-year-old Swede from Stockholm. I’ve been sailing my whole life in different ways. With my family as a child and in the sailing scouts as a teenager, followed by various instructor & charter jobs for both kids and adults. In my early 20’s, I started racing and now I’ve done 3 seasons in match racing (currently together with team Häger who’s in place 7 on the world women’s match race ranking). I’ve done several offshore races in Sweden and one international Tall Ship’s Race 2013 with the Norwegian vessel Stadstaad Lemkuhl which we also won. And apart from racing nowadays, I also love to just go out cruising and enjoy being at sea. Territories apart from the Baltic Sea I’ve been cruising around are in the Mediterranean Sea & outside the Australian and American coasts. At daytime, when I don’t sail, I work as Head of Creative in Stockholm at an advertising agency. If you are interesting in having a crew member and think I sound interesting, I would love to speak more and hear about you and your boat. I hope this sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
