I have only managed a couple of races in the winter series on Yacht Kassy at Scarborough Yacht Club, but we did well in those races taking a fifth place overall. Life just got too busy with a new role at work, wanting to spend more time with my horses, organising our wedding and supporting Guy.
After interviews, assessments and skipper trials we finally got the news we had been waiting for – Guy will be one of the eleven Race Skippers for the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2019/20. It’s all very exciting and I am immensely proud of him. Guy is now employed full time by the Clipper Race and is undertaking all the preparation and training as we head towards crew allocation day to find out which boat he will be on, and meet his crew. I am now officially a race skipper SWAG.
Congratulations to all of the successful race skippers for the 2019/20 race.
