Amateur Tessato Sail Around The Globe

Tessa Hicks, the 59-year-old woman from Isles Road in Ramsbury, is all set to take on the seven seas.

She is set to take part in the 40,000 nautical mile Clippers Round the World Yacht Race.

It takes a lot of guts to sail for a few miles for a non sailor and she has decided to sail around the globe by taking part in the race that starts on August 20 from Albert Docks in Liverpool.
