Pip has had a carbon bucket seat built for the boat which is a big improvement from sitting on the boat floor.

She will be spending a huge amount of time using it over three months in the Vendee Globe: navigating, sleeping, eating, cooking, making repairs, reading, and writing in this chair as well as being a safe place for when waters are rough. So it needs to be as comfortable, functional and practical as possible.

We’re looking for your suggestions on ways the chair can be used and adapted? The key design parameters are that the chair has to be lightweight and robust, and it should not easily trip Pip up, hurt her if fallen onto it, or break off.
