Pip cannot take a lot of equipment with her so having multi functionality items really helps her out. What items do you recommend her to take and why?

Marine Snap on Light

Cool little light it  has 4 different light settings. On the white light, it has both a dim and bright option. It also has a solid red and an SOS flashing red option for night or emergency use. It clips on a rail or bimini frame, so it can be used anyplace.  You can even use it as USB charger - btw you charge with a USB cable so no batteries needed. So overall it is a pretty cool light.

Any salty sailor probably already knows this...

Hundreds of years of mariner experience has proven that these two items are the only things you need. Please refer to the flow chart.

All in One Coffee Maker

Get a thermos that also includes a bean grinder as part of the bottle. This will let you make a single fresh and perfect cup of coffee to start your day! No need for a separate grinder to help save space and avoid misplacing it among your other things.

Wilson..

A companion of sorts. A teddy bear (I still have mine from when I was young), a rag-doll or a volleyball with a face painted on it.  Can be used for conversation practice, companionship but also I am sure can help getting the sales up - the possibilities are endless. Something damaged halfway up the mast? Throw Wilson up to take a look. It must be very hard to manage all of the pressure, work load, diet and sleep, so it would be great to have a friendly face with you at all times.

Avocados

Good for nutrition and natural skincare, and they also have anti-inflammatory properties. This is important and helpful for Pip, as she'll be at sea for such a long period on her own, and there are of course many risks involved. Anything that can be done to help keep her stronger and safe will make a huge difference. Plus, they are delicious!

Ginger to help overcome seasickness

A nice healthy snack but also good for seasickness. It prolongs or alleviates any oncoming seasickness and it has been backed by science and medical research, and is naturally effective. Something small and not heavy that Pip can take with her as well in case she faces seasickness during the race.

The Spork - hybrid cutlery to save weight

A simple one, but the best things are! The hybrid cutlery to save weight. A spoon-fork. Multi-use, lightweight an all round simple but effective item for Pip to have with her onboard.
