Meet Marlow's Pro-Sailor Partners:

Saturday 14th September will see the show open with a Marlow talk from IMOCA 60 offshore racer Pip Hare who joins Marlow on stage after her recent success in the 2019 Fastnet. At 11am Pip will be sharing her experiences as an offshore sailor and her plans for the Vendee Globe 2020. There will also be an opportunity to visit Pip at her yacht Super Bijou.

Susie Goodall will deliver a Q&A session on the Marlow Hub at 11am on Sunday 15th September. In 2018 Susie hit world headlines after becoming the youngest and only female competitor in the Golden Globe Race. A race which saw her hit immense highs with a fantastic set of race gains before tragedy stuck in the South Pacific.

Paralympic sailor Hannah Stodel will join the Marlow Hub on Thursday 19th September at 11am for a talk about her extensive career to date, firstly as a Paralympian and now as a Vendee Globe competitor. Marlow have had the pleasure of working with Hannah since her Olympic days and are working with Hannah again to help her achieve her goal of sailing single-handedly in the Vendee Globe.
