Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Clipper Race

The Clipper race ended last weekend after 40,000 miles. It started from St Katherine's Dock in London and ended there. Twelve boats took part.















There are 16 races over 8 legs:








There was a competition today to win a place on the 2015 race. In case you're wondering, I didn't enter.

  1. Don't look like clippers to me, more like ocean going yachts. Thought you would have entered the comp thought

  2. They are a very colourful subject for your camera. They look awfully small to sail so far. Not my idea of adventure.

  7. That does look like fun! Work, but fun too. That's a LONG ways to go in one of those. Thanks for introducing me to it. I won't be entering, either. :-)

  9. Amazing - but that would not be for me ! A friend of mine took part in something similar and became very sick somewhere between S.Africa and Australia...what a drama that was.
    Nice boats though and nice reflections!
