I’m Doing the Clipper 13-14!!

Clipper 13-14 Crew

Late in 2011 I decided to apply to a leg of the Clipper Round The World 13-14 Yacht Race!

This is something I have toyed with doing over a number of years since from around 2004 and until recently never considered it seriously. Then a chance conversation with a friend and the fact that the 2013-2014 will coincide with my 50th birthday led me to look at it more seriously leading me to apply, and ultimately gain a place on Leg 1.

Originally I only intended to complete the first leg from the UK to Brazil. However Clipper gets addictive and so I have since added 2 furthers legs: Leg 2 – Brazil to South Africa, and Leg 3 – South Africa to Western Australia.

Subsequently I have also decided to raise sponsorship for two charities close to my heart:

  • Cancer Research UK
  • RNLI – Royal National Lifeboat Institution

100% of any money I raise for these charities will go to the charities – it will not be used to fund my berth on the event, I have funded this myself and with some sponsorship from my company!

You can find out more about the event, my chosen charities and how to donate to them, myself, and follow my adventures on my blog pages.
