Determined to achieve in offshore racing
Follow my progress towards my 2016 Solo Offshore Challenge.
Building on my experience of top level International sailing and using all the skills I have learnt I am now training hard towards the epic single handed battle that is the Solitaire du Figaro. A grueling 2000 mile race between five European ports – known as the unofficial world championships of solo offshore sailing
I have been Olympic sailing since 2008 where I was lucky enough to work with Britain’s best sailors, coaches, and support staff and went onto win several World, European and National titles, across a number of different sailing disciplines.
During this time I have worked as a professional sailor and coach and have worked with a huge variety of teams from British youth squad, Para-Olympians, top British yacht race team’s and Oman Sail’s Women’s squad.
Next, I plan to develop my skills further into the discipline of Solo sailing and enjoy every opportunity that sailing has to offer.
“I have been fortunate enough to work and sail with Mary. We faced a project that pushed boundaries, took on challenges and demanded results. Mary displayed a passion for the sport and approached the project with professionalism. She is a natural role model not only to her peers but also to those new to the sport of sailing. She has an incredible drive to do her very best and inspires those around her to reach for the same level.” – Dee Caffari MBE
