The Ultimate Sailing Experience

Old Pulteney Whisky Bottles

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.  Find out more about the race here

    Wow, just checked race standings. Even with MOB, our amazing Sean and his amazing Legenderrys are in 4th place with only 1 point between them and GB. That's one hell of a race. Well done everyone, enjoy San Fran and be gentle on the Newbies. Fingers crossed for you Andrew. Much love to all xxx

    Thanks to the crew of the Old Pulteney on leg 6 in particular the Skipper Patrick for a fabulous job in looking after my daughter Maggie and not letting her head drop during this crossing of the Pacific Ocean. Maggie needed a challenge like this to boost her self esteem and whilst she may not think it now you have all given her the fillip she needed. Thanks for keeping her safe and for the skillful seamanship of the Skipper Patrick. Good luck to you all and complete the journey through to London where I hope to be to welcome you all back. Thank you all, Malcolm Gage

    San Fran looming fast, I'm sure you will enjoy being back on dry land with the obligatory beers and vino. Hang on in there, the end is in sight (well almost) Everyone watching and willing you on. Much love to our wonderful crew and skip. Andrew hope your leg is getting better and not broken. Hugs to my girl xx
