Low Side Helming…

Clipper 15-16 Race, Derry~Londonderry~Doire, CV29, Rio to Cape Town, Leg 2, John Curtis, Helming…and why I prefer the high side!

At least John Curtis on board (just!) the good ship Derry~Londonderry~Doire en route to Cape Town from Rio still appears to be smiling!

More pictures from the on board gallery can be found on the Clipper Website.

A Year On… And a New DLD Crew

DLD Arriving at Mouth of FoyleIt’s incredible that it is exactly a year this weekend that the 13-14 Derry~Londonderry~Doire crew arrived into Derry-Londonderry after winning the race across the North Atlantic. This weekend, the new Derry~Londonderry~Doire crew for the 15-16 race are once more making the journey for a weekend of team building activities – I’m sure a few of the red jackets will be spotted on the streets over the next few days!

​MOB Book Launched and New Personal AIS Revealed

Andrew Taylor MOB Derry Londonderry Doire Pacific Ocean

It’s hard to believe that it is just over a year since Andrew went overboard from the Derry~Londonderry~Doire in the North Pacific. Andrew has written a book, called ‘179W‘, about his experience in which he details his fight for survival during the hour and forty minutes he was in the water and pays tribute to the training, team and equipment that saved his life.

All proceeds from the book will be split equally between The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and The Newmarket Day Centre.
