The start date for the Clipper 13-14 Race was finally announced today as Sunday, 1st September. The start port is still unknown, but it will be somewhere on the south coast of England.
The Clipper Race – it’s a bit like a magical mystery tour… we don’t know where we are going, but I am sure we will have fun on the way! The way I see it is that it is all part of the adventure… if we were looking for certainties, we would be better off staying at home on the sofa with a cup of tea. I’m sure there will be times ahead when I wish that was exactly where I was 🙂
In other news, the first boat and skipper pairing has been named as One DLL, which will be skippered by Olly Cotterell. One DLL is sponsored by De Lage Landen who are sponsoring a yacht for the second race in a row.
