#276. Pip Hare is a lifelong professional sailor and a wonderfully inspiring person. Mia & I traveled to the south coast of England to meet Pip aboard her IMOCA 60 SUPER BIGOU, a ‘recycled’ Open 60 she is gearing up to campaign in the 2020 Vendee Globe Race. While we talked, her friends – including sailing speed record holder Paul Larsen – were on deck prepping the boat for upcoming Transat Jacque Vibre. Pip shared her life’s sailing story, from growing up in small cruising boats to sailing a ‘desk’ with the RNLI, that ultimately led her back into a career on the ocean.
