DHL’s Susie is underway

[ July 2, 2018   //   ]

DHL-sponsored sailor Susie Goodall embarks set off on her non-stop solo voyage around the world on 1 July. She is the only female and the youngest competitor amongst 19 sailors attempting to complete the Golden Globe race.

DHL Express helped refurbish her boat – now called DHL Starlight – which will be her home for the best part of a year.

The ethos of the competition is that competitors complete the round-the-world  journey without any outside assistance or modern equipment, recreating the conditions of 1969. Just like working in the airfreight industry, then.
