We were delighted to welcome Dr Bailey who generously gave her time to virtually share her phenomenal sailing experience, which included being a crew member and doctor aboard the MAXI- Catamaran Playstation/Cheyenne in which she achieved four world records, including the Round the World Record and Trans- Med World Speed record. Dr Bailey is also a RYA sailing coach, GP and dermatologist for the Royal Navy and NHS in Cornwall.
Dr Bailey’s presentation provided a startling insight into the highlights and challenges faced aboard a maxi-catamaran on a round the world race, including the isolation and loneliness felt whilst floating through the ocean, and how they survived dismasting in the Southern Ocean and drifting for a further week. The pupils once again put forward a range of interesting questions for Dr Bailey and we would all like to say a big thank you to her for joining us – a truly inspirational woman and fantastic role-model, thank you.
