“The ocean is more a part of me than the land” - Pip Hare
By Blue Earth Summit
This week on the Blue Earth Podcast, we hear from British yachtswoman, journalist and sailing instructor Pip Hare.
Pip grew up in a landlocked county in the UK but after getting a taste of sailing as a teenager she decided she would make it her career, whatever it took. Pip says as a young woman in a male-dominated sport it was a constant battle for opportunities. She says despite being only the 8th woman in history to complete the Vendée Globe round-the-world yacht race, the biggest mountain she had to climb was getting to the start line.
In a raw moment of honesty, Pip also opens up to host Laura Nesbitt about her decision not to have a family, and shares what drives her to protect our precious oceans.
