Competing in the RORC Transatlantic Race are highly accomplished female sailors from Great Britain, France and Canada who have participated in recent major offshore races, including Libby Greenhalgh who has been confirmed as the navigator on line honours favourite, Mike Slade’s 100ft Maxi, Leopard.
The British sailor was navigator for Team SCA for every leg of the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race and will be returning to Lanzarote, which was the training base for the all-female team before the race. She also worked as a meteorologist for the British Olympic Team at the 2016 Rio Games. For the RORC Transatlantic Race, Libby has been selected as navigator for Mike Slade's Farr 100, Leopard which will be vying for monohull line honours and the race record of 10 days 07 hours 06 mins 59 secs, set in 2015 by Jean-Paul Riviere’s French Finot Conq 100, Nomad IV.
