Final Race brief, dinner with Qingdao team and last night in bed and room with air conditioning… this is going to be a hot hot race up to the equator!
We have a great crew of 20 in total – some super experienced round the world crew and a mix of newbie leggers like me. We have a new skippers mate, another Chris – so that makes 4 x Chris….Chris-skip, Chris-chief… our chief engineer who joined from Greenings, Chris-known as Q, our bosun/quartermaster, and Chris Sargent…henceforth Sarg – coincidentally with a military background!
Our race starts with a short inshore race then a motor through the Great Barrier Reef for an off shore start. And you can follow our progress on https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/race/standings
Much appreciation to family and friends support that has got me this far… smiles. Susan
