Junella King, from the picturesque shores of Antigua, emerges as a beacon of inspiration within maritime history, sailing alongside her Maiden comrades.

Her feat as the youngest black woman to navigate around Cape Horn during Leg 3 of the Ocean Globe Race is a testament to her resilience and determination.

Junella’s voyage with Maiden commenced through the ‘Apprentice’ program, where she, alongside Vuyisile Jaca, honed their skills and embraced the ethos of self-belief and perseverance.

Together, they embody the ethos of inclusivity that Maiden symbolizes in the realm of sailing. Beyond the vast expanse of the ocean, Maiden’s mission extends to championing education for girls globally through The Maiden Factor.

Junella’s remarkable achievements, rooted in unwavering resolve, illuminate a path for future generations of female sailors, encouraging them to embark fearlessly upon their own journeys across the seas of possibility.
