We gained two more crew members over the weekend – that’s team building for you! Welcome to the crew Danny Bryce and Shane Brunker!
It’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!
Great time lapse video from the photographs taken at crew allocation. Can you spot any familiar faces?!
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.
Meet the Clipper 2015-16 Skippers. Fantastic to see that there are 2 female skippers for this next race.
