At only 24, Katie is breaking into the highest profile yacht racing circuit; the elite solo sailors racing offshore in the most extreme craft. Following the lead of young British sailors Ellen McArthur, Sam Davies and Dee Caffari, Katie is set to capture the imagination of all armchair adventurers.
Offshore solo sailing is the ultimate environment to push the boundaries of human capability and self reliance. There is no greater test.
Overcoming fear, race changing tactical decision making and problem solving, all while working under the duress of sleep deprivation, isolation and the unknown.
Racing through gruelling conditions, pushing well beyond any conventional comfort zone in pursuit of success.
Whilst providing an enormous rush though speed and absolute self sufficiency, offshore solo racing gives the sailor a completely fresh perspective of life in general when back on land.
Overcoming whatever adversity comes her while whilst championing the cause that, with preparation, perseverance and practice, anything can be achieved.
