Hannah Stodel has represented Great Britain at three Summer Paralympics and has won three World Championships. The RYA awarded her Yachtmaster of the Year in 2017. Hannah is aiming to become the first disabled athlete in history to race around the world in the 2020 Vendée Globe.
I’ve learnt a lot about myself on the journey so far, including facing major set-backs, but I believe it’s put me on the right track to start my ultimate challenge. 16 years on a crossroads has appeared… with sailing dropped from the Paralympics, I’ve finally decided to take on my childhood dream: to become the first disabled sailor to compete in the Vendée Globe.” Hannah Stodel
Sail trim sessions will be led by British Paralympic sailor Hannah Stodel.
