Pip Hare is the 8th woman to ever finish the Vendée Globe. With that adventure complete, she is now well on her way to her next solo circumnavigation in 2024. She’s got a new boat and a professional team behind her as she prepares a competitive campaign for the next series of races.

Pip has been a professional sailor for over 25 years and broke into solo ocean racing a decade ago. Andy got to interview Pip as she prepared for the race in 2019 and we are so happy to bring that conversation full circle as she nears the finish line. On top of her wonderful videos and blog posts throughout this Vendee Globe, she has been sailing an outstanding race in a 20-year-old, non-foiling boat. It was her birthday just a few days ago and she wrote: “I first dreamed of competing in this race when I was 17 years old. I am now 47. Never stop chasing your dreams. I have so many more ambitions and am excited to find out who I will be at 57.” Thanks Pip!
