Anna Root about to sail 6,000 miles in yacht race

 |  By: Steve Johnson In: Synergist news

Close followers of Synergist may remember that Anna Root, one of The Agency Works’ team of Synergist project managers, sailed in a charity yacht race in 2011. http://www.synergist.co.uk/blog/2011/september/charity-yacht-race

Incredibly, she’s at it again! This time for Unicef.

She is part of the Clipper Round The World Yacht Race that sets off this Sunday. As a team member of Leg 6, she will be sailing from Qungdao, China to Seattle USA, a journey of almost 6,000 nautical miles. Their yacht, 70-foot ‘Garmin’, is skippered by Royal Marines-trained Ashley Skett.

Anna said: “I think this race will be far more mentally challenging as not only is it a much longer race than I have competed in previously, but there will also be the freezing weather conditions to contend with. I hate being cold so this will be a true endurance test!” Well, quite. Spending over a month crossing the North Pacific in a wobbly yacht would certainly qualify as an endurance test...
