Hannah represented ParalympicsGB at her fourth consecutive Games at Rio 2016, competing in the Sonar event alongside John Robertson and Stephen Thomas.
Hannah started sailing aged three in Brightlingsea in a Mirror. Having joined the RYA Mirror National Junior Squad in 1995, Hannah went on to become the first British woman to compete in a sailing competition at a Paralympic Games in the Sonar at Athens 2004 as well as winning back-to-back World Championships in 2005 & 2006.
At Rio 2016, the Sonar crew finished in 9th place.
Inspired by Dame Ellen Macarthur’s sheer determination and can-do attitude, Hannah was named Yachting Journalists Association Young Sailor of the Year 1999.
