Life on board a Clipper Yacht

It is hard to believe that the time has finally arrived – Dan sets sail on his Clipper Round the World adventure. Last week was prep week, down at Gosport Marina and I had the chance to go and help out and meet some of the crew he’ll be sailing with.

As someone who knows very little about sailing, it was wonderful to get on board and understand how they’re going to be spending the 5 weeks together. To give you an idea, below are a few shots from Team Liverpool 2018 in their preparation week.  It wasn’t all photo taking – I also got stuck in with the dirty work!

Dan is taking part in two legs – 01 and 06. On 20th August, he sets sail for leg o1 – Liverpool to Punta Del Este. He will be crossing the Atlantic and will be an estimated 30 – 35 days, crossing the equator, until he arrives in South America.

      Thanks Maddie. I’m sure we’ll see the Pink Panther plenty of times in Liverpool!
