In summary, I am participating in legs 4 & 5 of the 2017/18 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. This takes me some 12,000, over 4 months, from Western Australia to Northern China as shown in the picture you will find in the ‘Route Map’ link at the bottom of this page.

On November 19th I leave the UK and fly to Perth where I was planning to meet up with “” as she arrived on/around the 20th/21st.

Unfortunately, as they had to divert to Port Elizabeth for offload one person with a broken arm and another with a broken finger they will not be arriving until 4-5 days later.  We will then have one mad rush to turn her around and get her ready to leave on December 2nd!
