We made it to New York

I’ve been in New York for 2 days and the ground is still moving like I’m on the boat. The enormity of what I’m about to do has hit me as we prepare to sail across the Atlantic.

The first few days of the stopover in Bermuda felt more like a holiday as after the refresher training I had time to visit Elbow beach and have a swim. Clipper also organised a working party with a local environmental charity on Truck Island where I helped with a eco regeneration project to plant indigenous mangrove plants.

On Sunday 19th June following a parade of sail the fleet left Bermuda and it was the first time in nearly three years to sail on a Clipper 70. Even though I’ve been reading my training manual during that time I seem to have forgotten more than I remembered so it’s was a steep learning curve on the passage to New York.

I had hoped that I could update this blog to include photos and more details but WordPress doesn’t seem to work from my phone or iPad. Hopefully when I get to Ireland I can sort it out.

    Marie – great to hear your news and thinking of you ahead of the next leg and adventure. You are amazing – cannot wait to hear all your news. I think you are going to have to plan a after dinner speech to deliver when you get back so we can hear all about it. Much love Habe and Rupert
