The Leaving of Liverpool

 

Midday Sunday and the start of the Round the World Clipper Race. Over 40,000 nautical miles, 227 days of racing, 6 ocean crossings for 12 yachts, crewed by over 700, mostly amateur, crew men and women.

 

The Liverpool boat is leaving the River Mersey on the first, and longest, leg of the race to the Atlantic Ocean and Punta del Este in Uruguay.

 

They will return next July for the race finish.

Brave and committed people!
Excellent shot Les. I can't decide if they are brave or foolhardy.
There is something strange about a race that takes a year.....even a test match only lasts 5 days
A nice shot, Les, what an adventure, good luck to them all.
Godspeed!
