Working in partnership with The Magenta Project, Lisa Blair, the first woman to sail solo around Antarctica, will be racing in the 2017 Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race with an all-female crew. It has been sixteen years since there was an all-female crew competing in this iconic Australian yacht race highlighting the need for such a campaign. Lisa and The Magenta Project aim to use this race to encourage more women to sail and to continue to promote Lisa's positive environmental message Climate Action Now.
Lisa's yacht Climate Action Now will be raced with eight crew taking four experienced sailors and partnering them with four emerging sailors to offer a unique opportunity to mentor young woman in the sailing industry. To meet the crew click HERE.
