Tracy took part in her first Whitbread Round the World Race as cook aboard ‘Atlantic Privateer’ in 1985/86. After this she decided to enter the first all female crew in the 1989/90 Whitbread and ‘Maiden Great Britain’ crossed the start line on 2nd Sept and entered the history books. ‘Maiden’ went on to win two of the legs and come second in class overall, the best result for a British boat since 1977 and unbeaten to this day. Tracy is now race director for The Oryx Cup and The QUEST, two Global Formula 1 Sailing Events designed for the fastest and most advanced sailing vessels in the world starting and finishing Qatar. When Tracy is not sailing, she runs her own motivation and teambuilding company as well as giving after-dinner speeches.’

“Tracy touched every single person in the room, in so many different ways. From a personal perspective her strength and determination not to be beaten in times of adversity in both professional and personal life was absolutely inspirational (I can’t think of a stronger word!)” Justene Donnelly, Head of Solution Design, TSCHero Ltd
