Miranda MERRON

50 years old

Cowes

One must have quite a temper to decide to give up a promising career in advertising to engage in the passion of off-shore racing. It’s the path that Miranda Merron chose about fifteen years ago. It should be said that the navigator has serious atavism : at 9 years old, she crossed the Atlantic on the family boat for the first time, an experience that would be later renewed. With her expertise in trajectory and her rigor in analyzing, she has progressively made her way as a navigator.

 

Joining many team navigations, she participated in the Jules Verne Trophy as well as the British Isles Tour before entering the Class40 circuit alongside Halvard Mabire, her companion. Together, they share a taste for technical details, for a navigation respectful of the equipment and for particular ethics. Their achievements together succeeded in convincing their partner Campagne de France to support them on the Vendée Globe.  If Miranda steers the project, Halvard Mabire is never far away. Although she will take the start alone around the world, they are both present in this story.
