In 1997 Chabaud became the first woman to sail solo and non-stop around the world.[4] She is the only female to have skippered the winning entry on corrected time in the Fastnet Race, doing so in 1999.[5]

Since becoming a Member of the European Parliament, Chabaud has been serving on the Committee on Development. In addition to her committee assignments, she is part of the European Parliament Intergroup on Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas[6] and the MEPs Against Cancer group.[7]
