Round-the-world solo sailor Pip Hare given ‘incredible’ home-coming reception

Well-wishers have lined the waterfront to welcome British sailor Pip Hare as she returned home, having become only the eighth woman to finish a round-the-world yacht race. The 47-year-old, waving flares in her 60ft yacht Medallia, was given a police escort and was met by a lifeboat and other small craft as she arrived at Poole, Dorset.
