Race Preparation underway

With the last level 4 training having been completed last Sunday, the focus has now shifted towards preparing for the race. With only 17 days left, the race teams are currently in Gosport working through a full schedule all week. The schedule includes trainings for Team Coordinators, Engineers, Bosuns & Riggers, Media and Sailmakers in addition to getting charts and food loaded onto the boats. Skippers are getting briefings on a number of topics before the teams will depart on Tuesday next week to deliver the boats to St. Katharine Docks in London.

The Race Village at St. Katharine Docks opens on Saturday, August 22 and will include open boat tours daily from 11 am to 6pm through Saturday, August 29. I will return to London to help team ClipperTelemed+ with the final preparations for the race and of course to see all twelve teams start the race on August 30th.
