Youngest woman - clipper yacht race

£635 of £25,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 17 months
In 2019-20 I will be the youngest woman to ever circumnavigate the globe on the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. Not only am I doing this as a massive personal challenge, but I aim to inspire young women across the globe to become more active and take a different, more adventurous route in life. The Clipper race, which has been running every other year since 1996, is world renowned and has a massive media coverage. On this trip I will be spending 11 months on board a 70-foot yacht along with about 20 other novice sailors. We will be racing against 11 other boats in each of the 8 legs of the race. Along with this at each of the stopovers I will be promoting my cause, inspiring thousands of people from many countries.
In 2016 I underwent life changing scoliosis surgery in which I was massively helped through by the Scoliosis Association UK (SAUK) and the community of people who had previously gone through the experience. While on this trip I hope to inspire and encourage others who are going through the same or similar challenging experience I went through. Any funds I receive that go over my berth fee I will donate to SAUK in order to help thousands of people across the UK.
Any donation, large or small, will make a huge difference to enable me to take part in this life changing trip. Even if you are unable to sponsor, please share this page as I will be tremendously grateful. I am also looking for large companies to help fund the trip in return for worldwide advertisement. If you know anyone who may be interested please contact me through email: sophie220801@gmail.com  
Thanks so much for your support,
Sophie
