The Old Pulteney is one of a fleet of 12 super yachts which departed London on 1st September on a year long voyage around the world, stopping in the northern French Port of Brest before a tour that will take in Rio, Cape Town, Australia, Singapore, Qingdao, San Francisco, Panama, Jamaica, New York and Londonderry – concluded by a homecoming in London in July 2014.
The crew is made up of men and women from all walks of life – from retired engineers to taxi drivers to housewives – who give up their normal lives to train and take on the adventure of a lifetime. Scots, Adam Nunn from Dundee and Charles Slater, who originates from Orkney are amongst them, along with people from twelve different countries – the UK, the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the Netherlands, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Portugal and Spain.

Well that was a shocker! By now you will have read on the Clipper Race website that the race has been cancelled, due to rigging concerns on some of the boats.

Ice-cold beer, pile of ice cream dripping in chocolate sauce, fresh food, hot shower, comfy bed, catching up with friends and family...We all look forward to certain treats when we get into port.

We are under one hundred miles from the finish line and running fast under our medium weight kite. OneDLL is in front of us and seems to have just that extra bit of speed we lack to keep up with them.
