Mills was born in Cardiff, Wales, and started sailing at Cardiff Sailing Centre (originally called Llanishen Sailing Centre) when she was 8 years old before moving up to sail for the Welsh National Optimist Squad and winning the British Optimist Championships in 2001.
In 2002, Hannah was voted UK Young Sailor of the Year and BBC Wales Young Sports Personality of the Year.
On 10 August 2012 Hannah Mills helming for Saskia Clark won a Silver Medal at the Olympic games in Weymouth. Mills battled hard throughout the event, not finishing outside the top 6 the entire regatta. She went into the medal race with crew Saskia Clark equal points with the New Zealand team and far enough ahead of the rest of the fleet that both boats were battling it out for Gold and Silver. After a great start, however, there was a dramatic wind shift and they came 9th in the medal race, which gave them the Silver medal.
