Hannah White, one of Britain's brightest young sailors, is preparing for the race of a lifetime as she counts down to OSTAR (the Original Single-Handed Transatlantic Race) leaving the UK on 25th May. As she prepares - fitness, nutrition, learning every inch of the boat (and more importantly how to mend it!) - Hannah is also working on morale boosting methods to get her through the long three weeks alone at sea.

It is going to be a hard race - 45 minute sleep breaks for example, food that has to be rehydrated, hygiene considerations - but in all this she also hopes to have some fun too. She is being sponsored by a new online company called Pure Solo (, which allows you to download backing tracks to sing or play an instrument to, save and share with friends. Part of Hannah's task while in the ocean will be to make sure that mentally she is kept alert and so she is going to be tasked with recording some music miles out into the ocean which will then be streamed back to the UK for her followers to listen to. A voting system is being set up whereby songs will be nominated to keep Hannah going - motivational ones, celebratory ones - whatever the public feel will put wind in her sails.

As is normal for a 26 year old, Hannah also needs to make sure that her skin is kept in tip-top condition against the ravages of the salt, wind and sun. To this end, she has secured Liz Earle as sponsors and they are preparing a great package of beauty products to ensure that Hannah arrives in the USA in as good a condition as when she left. Liz Earle's products really work on every skin type by harnessing the potent powers of the finest quality ingredients (

Finally, Hannah is an ambassador for Helly Hansen who have ensured that she is kitted out in not only technically excellent clothing, but also practical and fashionable pieces too.

Interview opportunities available with Hannah - learn how she is preparing, what drives her and what she hopes to achieve though this race. Hannah is one of very few women entering and is amongst the youngest. She is determined to finish this race and avenge the demons that saw her forced to withdraw with equipment failure when it was last running four years ago.
