I’ve already posted about my infamous level 3 Clipper Race training week, which included a few disasters such as a fuel shut off incident in the main Portsmouth Harbour channel, running aground, a crash (resulting in a hole in the hull!), but above anything else, excellent team bonding and team work!
So I thought I’d share a fantastic video which was made by a production company who were on a try out for the RTW (credit: Maeva Bardy). I hope it gives you a flavour of the training side, and uplifting mood that we had on board despite the dramas!

If you want to experience the excitement of race start, the Clipper Race is starting on 20th August with a line slipping ceremony at 9.15am, and a starting gun firing at 12.30pm at Albert Dock in Liverpool.
