Gil Sharp    

Clipper Round the World Yacht Race  -  A Grandmother realises her racing dreams

 

Proving that age is no barrier,  Gil (a retired professional musician) will share her elations, joys, depressions and the deprivations of being a member of a racing crew in the 2013-14 Clipper Race. She took on the challenge of the Southern Ocean from Cape Town to Sydney, the Sydney Hobart race and the North Atlantic, finishing with a final sprint from Den Helder in Holland to the Thames.
