Leg One Complete

Hello Everyone!
It's been a while since I have managed to get online and get an update to you all.

Leg 1 was AWESOME.

I will be updating the blog today about my race.

As you may have also seen, sadly, I have had to step off the boat and return to the UK due to a family bereavement. I hope to return to the boat for Leg 4 or even 5. However, my family situation currently determines my return date.

I will keep followers up to date on the boats progress and link you in as required!


Thanks for all of your support

Update Update Update


Good Morning from a Sunny UK!

Some much needed updates are being completed this week before I set sail around the world!

Team Building Weekend - Qingdao, Shandong, China. 
Firstly, here is the page which gives an overview of the team building weekend in Qingdao. I couldn't attend the one in the UK so made a dash for Qingdao from Shanghai. It was a brilliant weekend, and I was so pleased to be able to meet some of the Qingdao Ambassadors! 

Level 4 Training - Gosport, Hampshire, UK.
Secondly. here is the page which gives a review of the Level 4.2 training which took place at the beginning of July. It was an incredible week - thanks team! 

Fundraising
I have recently set up a second fundraising page for UNICEF. This is the race charity, but NOT my primary charity for funds. However, if you wish to donate to Unicef via my page, please click here.

For JST the donations have been trickling in, and I must say thank you to one particular person. He made a large donation, and went on to say that he was also a crew member for the 97/98 edition of the race. Amazing! Thank You! Jeremy!

Hello Everyone!

It has been an incredibly busy time here in Shanghai as I approach the final preparations to leave and return to the UK for my Level 4 training and RTW Campaign.

We have some updates on the way... I joined a Team Building event in Qingdao 17-18 June 2017, as I couldn't attend the UK one... also, there will be additions to Kit Reviews, AND knowing your knots! 

Lots to look forward too!

Hi Everyone,

It's been a hectic time here in Shanghai since returning after Chinese New Year!
A whole host of announcements have been coming out! So, I'll be brief here!

Race Announcements:
We will visit Sanya, South China!
We will stopover in Seattle, USA!

SKIPPERS! - Announcement of the skippers was made earlier this month, and I am so pleased to see a few faces that I know including the amazing Wendy 'Wendo' Tuck (with whom I completed Level 3 training) and Connall! (with whom I sailed from Hobart - Sydney!)

Phew!
