Supported by Land Rover she will undertake the attempt in Speedbird, a specially designed state-of-the-art, hydrofoiling monohull sail-boat. In 2016, Hannah White will attempt to make history. In a purpose-built, state of the art machine, Hannah aims to not only break Zara Davis' current sailing speed record over one nautical mile, but become the first woman to ever set that record above the 40 knot barrier.
