Diane has sailing in her blood and as a 4 year old was hooked to the sport (probably literally) from her first down winder in 30 knots on her family boat. The Mini Transat will be a challenging race and there is a lot of preparation ahead, you can read all about her master plan on the One Girl’s Ocean Challenge website.
Diane will use PredictWind’s advanced weather forecasts and weather routing technology to help get the edge over the competition.
