Nigel Wrench interviews Friday, 11 January, 2002, 13:09 GMT

Ellen MacArthur
In February, Ellen MacArthur became the fastest and youngest woman to sail single-handed around the world.

She captured the heart of the nation as she finished second in the Vendee Globe Around the World race.

Nigel Wrench begins his short series of interviews with people who, we believe, provided some of the cultural highlights of the past year; people who have made a difference about the way we think about our country.

Ellen MacArthur tells him how she rated her achievement and what it meant for her.
