I’ve already blogged about the first two races which formed leg 8 of my Clipper Race adventure. The Atlantic race part one and two, and the race from N Ireland to the English coast. In this blog, I’m going to tell you about the last race, which saw us sprint up the Mersey to the official Clipper Race 17/18 finish at Albert Docks.
After our Atlantic race (see part one and two here) followed by an incredible couple of weeks in N Ireland, we were ready to set sail again. The last ‘big’ race, 1,000 miles around Ireland and over the Irish Sea to the English coast.
I published Part 1 of my Atlantic Race a couple of weeks ago and you can read it here. This is the much anticipated 2nd part, in which we encountered some of the issues which defined our race, and finished with a warm welcome in Derry.
