Club member Pip Hare finished the Vendée Globe race
at 00:57:30 Thursday 11th February.

We heartily congratulate her on this amazing achievement.

"After 95 days, 11 hours, 37 mins and 30 seconds of racing, Hare is the first British skipper to finish the 2020-21 race, and only the eighth woman ever to finish the Vendée Globe in its history. Her performance on a 21-year-old IMOCA, the oldest boat yet to finish this edition, has drawn admiration from all corners of the world of French and international ocean racing, not just for her high level of motivation and drive throughout the race but for her intelligent, efficient courses and her ability to push her elderly but evergreen boat hard all the way to the finish line."
This is just a sample of the report on her epic voyage on the Vendée Globe website.
