There I was, a plan for a weeks posting in my head, starting of with a view of the end of last year's Clipper Round the World Yacht and running throughout the week with views of the start of this years race, then I loose my internet connection for six days. Then it starts working again! So better late than never.
The ten clippers moor in Canning Half Tide dock waiting of the right moment ot sail out into the River Mersey, They presented a colourful sight as the weather fortunately held up for the start.
Ten boats, 400 crew from around the world with only ten professsional seamen amongst them, seventeen per yacht at any one time. Seven legs with 14 ports of call and 35,000 miles to return to Liverpool in 2008. Quite a race.
