    On February 11th, 2001, Ellen MacArthur sailed into port in France, completing the Vendee Globe, the world's toughest race. Alone and unsupported, she had spent more than three months at sea and had coped with storms, exhaustion, rigging failures, and a catastrophic collision with a submerged object. But Ellen never gave up and, at the age of 24, she became the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. This is Ellen's story, from her childhood in land locked Derbyshire, to that historic race.

    When Ellen MacArthur set sail in her record-breaking solo circumnavigation of the globe in 2004, it was the culmination of a lifetime’s love for the sea and the fulfilment of an ambitious dream. Aged just 18, she was to sail her tiny boat around the coast of Britain single-handedly. It was the first of many astounding achievements. In 2009, Ellen shocked the public when she said she would be turning her back on competitive sailing to focus on the issue of sustainability.
