    You never know, I might be right!

    Been watching the first leg unfold on their website. Interesting race but the website is not their finest hour......

    Genuine question, what’s wrong with it?

    I followed, on the website, most of the last event. One of my pals joined mid-race as a Mate. A few of us took my boat to Londonderry to welcome the fleet crossing from New York. We had a really good look around one of the boats at that time.

    I wouldn’t want to take part in any circumstances but I have great respect for those that do/have done.

    Of course, sail setting is important and there are big differences in capability, but it’s much more than a “race”. Participation is a once in a lifetime experience for the vast majority.

    I’ve sailed with one of the skippers on the 19/20 event so I guess I’ll keep checking-in with the race viewer quite regularly.

    Hiya. This is the tracker page Ive been looking at:

    https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/race/standings

    Just a bit poor, I reckon compared to other races Ive dipped into. Im not one of those who knock the race itself, I reckon its great!

    I see they got a great blast going round Finnisterre. Last two time I got that same weather too..... except I was going the other way.
