A Worcester Park woman is on a quest to achieve her sporting ambition of sailing solo around the world.

Sailor Lizzy Foreman was the first British sailor to finish in her class in the Mini Transat, a solo race across the Atlantic, in 2016 which saw her spend 27 days at sea in a 21-foot boat.

The 27-year-old is now part of the 'Vendee2020Vision’ programme, a five-year ocean racing project and could be selected to compete in the 2020 Vendee Globe a solo around the world race.

If successful she will be the fourth British female to compete for Britain.

Lizzy is being helped by watch brand Christopher Ward as part of its Challenger programme.

She said: "I’m thrilled to be part of the Challenger.

“The next two years are going to be very exciting and I can’t wait to see where the partnership takes us.”

Previous Challengers include world-record holder Team GB Paralympian Sammi Kinghorn, Olympic Gold Medallist Will Satch, explorer and ultra-marathon runner Jamie Maddison, racing driver Jody Fannin and rallycross driver Paige Bellerby.
