About the event

Co-hosted with HFW at their London office, BESA is delighted to invite its members and the wider Baltic Exchange community to a special presentation on Wednesday 9 October given by British Paralympic World Champion, Hannah Stodel. Hannah will share the inspiring story of her success and discuss the next challenge she has set herself: to become the first disabled sailor ever to take on the Vendée Globe. Racing 24,000 miles around the world – nonstop and without any assistance – Hannah plans to set three major records along the way.

Registration for the event begins at 5.15pm, presentation at 5.45pm and networking over drinks and canapés at 6.30pm.

About our speaker

Three times World Champion and four times Paralympian, Hannah Stodel was born missing her lower right arm but she is a force unto herself and it has not stopped her from competing in able-bodied competition. Besides her three World Championship titles and scores of other results and awards, she’s been the global leader for reinstating disabled sailing into the Paralympic games and is an ambassador for Ditch the Label (anti-bullying) charity in London. With a fierce determination, Hannah is now undertaking the greatest challenge yet, her personal “Everest of the Seas” by competing in the Vendée Globe. We very much hope you can join us for what should be an interesting and inspiring event.
