Mini solo sailor, Lizzy Foreman on what drives a just 24-year old, pint-sized girl, to tackle the ocean alone
Cowes, Isle of Wight-based Hudson Wight Performance Sailwear was the first new marine clothing brand to enter the marine leisure market in 2013 since the introduction of the internet in 1989.
Hudson Wight specialises in designing general-purpose foul & fair weather performance clothing using the latest generation of high spec two & three-layer OceanVent fabrics.
The product range is built around the core HW1 Jacket & Salopettes and for 2014/2015 we have also introduced the HW1 Smock and the Performance Jacket.
Hudson Wight is the Title Sponsor of Lizzy Foreman, the UK’s Mini Transat sailor who will compete in this infamous solo race in 2015. Mini Transat 6.50 also known as Transat 650 is the solo transatlantic yacht race that starts in France and ends in Guadeloupe, covering over 4,000 miles with a stopover in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. The yachts are very small considering the scope of the race! The race runs on odd-numbered years, and was most recently completed in 2013. Sailors have to qualify by covering one of two specified 1,000 mile courses along with having 1,000 miles of ocean racing experience, much of it solo.
Lizzy, from Surrey, will be based with Hudson Wight throughout the Show and has lots of fun ideas for fundraising to help get her to the start line next Autumn.
