As I write this it’s just over 2 weeks before I fly to Bermuda to join the rest of my crew on board team Dare To Lead.
Four years has now passed since I signed up to sail the final leg of the Clipper 2019-20 Round the World Yacht Race. Who knew then that the world would be hit by a pandemic!
The fleet of 11 yachts have been stuck in the Philippines for two years. Fortunately in February of this year, the race Skippers and First Mates were able to fly out along with the Clipper Race maintenance team and staff. Weeks of hard work followed recommissioning the boats assisted for two weeks by the returning crew from around the world.
Since then the fleet have raced from the Philippines, across the North Pacific to Seattle for Leg 6. Within days they will enter the Panama Canal having sailed down the coast of America and Mexico for Leg 7 which finishes in Bermuda.
And that where my adventure begins!
