Join us for a conversation with Matilda Ajanko, an accomplished professional sailor, having sailed more than 50,000 offshore miles and taken part in over 50 races and regattas. Matilda was recently a yachtswoman navigating the globe on the restored Whitbread Round The World Race boat Maiden, and is a passionate advocate for Room to Read. The all-female crew faced a number of challenges on their voyage, and we'll hear that some of the toughest issues weren’t always related to sailing!
