Pauline McCann manages DPD’s Louth depot with her husband. When an email landed in her inbox from her employer stating that they were looking for a select number of employees to take part in the Tall Ships Race 2018, she knew that she couldn’t pass up on the opportunity.

After a gruelling selection process, part of which involved going to France for a number of physical challenges, Pauline was chosen as one of the crew members for the Gazelle de la Mer, which leaves Dublin Port this Monday 4 June.
