Miss Universe Great Britain winner and former I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here contestant Amy Willerton will take on her toughest challenge yet when she joins the Garmin team for the final, homecoming leg of the Clipper Race, from New York across the Atlantic Ocean to London via Derry-Londonderry and Den Helder.
Not your average beauty pageant winner, (titles include Miss Wales Asia Pacific World 2011, Miss London 2012 and Miss Universe Great Britain 2013) Amy is not scared to challenge herself and live outside her comfort zone. She has run the London Marathon, competed in various triathlons, and also played a part in the Russian Circus.
Having never been on a sailing boat before she started training, Amy recently completed all four training levels back to back at our Sydney, Australia base.
“I love taking on a challenge and trying something new. The Clipper Race is the Everest of the ocean! It’s as exciting as it is daunting but something I’m looking forward to achieving and ticking off my list of things to do“, declared Amy.
