Profile

At 45 years old, Pip Hare discovered solitaire only 10 years ago. Nevertheless, it has a respectable number of miles on its clock. Indeed, to his credit, tens of thousands of miles on a nearly 40-foot race-cruise sailboat, two Mini-Transat and a Transat Jacques-Vabre.

The British sailor acquired Bernard Stamm's former Suberbigou in January 2019. Pip Hare then started all the IMOCA Globe Series this year by starting with the Bermuda 1000 Race where she finished 15th. His main project has been participating in the Vendée Globe for many years and his objective is then on the verge of becoming a reality.
