Traineeship

Libby Finch

Libby, who had previous sailing experience, was looking to gain further sailing qualifications as well as compete in the world-famous Rolex Fastnet Race; during a sabbatical. Global Yacht Racing tailored a traineeship package which provided Libby with the training and additional mileage required to obtain her RYA Yacht master qualification as well as incorporating the necessary race training required to qualify for the Fastnet Race.
Libby successfully completed the Fastnet Race in 2017 as well gaining her Yachtmaster later that same summer. All in all, a successful and productive break in her professional career which her future employer valued. Libby has since secured a new role, based on the Isle of Wight, with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
