Portrait :

Phil Sharp has recently proven himself to be one of Britain’s most promising up and coming offshore sailors after finishing fourth in the 2005 Mini Transat out of 72 starters. This is a solo transatlantic race from France to Brazil for 21ft boats, and is considered to be one of the toughest offshore races.

Phil thrived during leg 1 of the Transat, down to Lanzarote, vying for the lead in fast downwind conditions until extensive spinnaker damage saw him eventually take 4th place in the 70-boat fleet. In the long second leg to Salvador, Brazil, Phil’s hopes of a top finished were dashed when he took wrong weather routing advice and ended up in 58th position after the first few days at sea. He then made one of the biggest recoveries in the history of the race and with the utmost grit and determination sailed through the fleet to claim 6th place in the second leg. This gave Phil a fantastic 4th place overall, the second best British result in the 30-year history of the race.

His ultimate goal is to be the first Briton to win the famous Vendée Globe single-handed round-the-world race. This race is the Everest of sailing, involving one man battling against the elements in gruelling conditions, non-stop around the world. To bridge the gap he aims to compete for class victory in the Route du Rhum this November, the most famous of the transatlantic races which is expected to attract over one million people to the start in St Malo.
