Teenage solo cruiser Katie McCabe has set her sights on a transatlantic crossing in a 21ft race boat.
The 14-year-old said: “After spending eight weeks on board the lovely Falanda as I completed my circumnavigation of Britain last summer, I only fell more in love with solo sailing, and the excitement and chaos that comes with it.
“So much so that I am now planning on sailing solo across the Atlantic, although this time not aboard Falanda, and not so alone! The Mini Transat is a solo transatlantic race, which I hope to take part in, in 2025.
“For the race I will need to buy a Mini 6.50, a little 21ft racing boat, that is smaller, lighter and faster than Falanda.”
