In the beginning…

During my first year at University, my dad sent me an article from a newspaper about a Round the World yacht race that was due to start in 1996. It was something that really appealed to me, having just spent two weeks sailing around the Channel Islands as part of my Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, but with a Student Loan and a degree to complete I put the article to one side.

Over the years I have kept track of the Clipper Round the World race, made easier over the past few years with all the information available on the Internet. Sailing around the world is a something I have dreamed about doing for a very long time… and this year I am starting to make that dream come true.

As the saying goes, “Every journey starts with a single step”. Mine starts here.
