  • Admin – thanks for posting this , it brings back happy memories for me as I took part in the inaugural Clipper Round the World Race in
    1996/7 , even now (at least once a week ) something of the trip comes to my mind – one of the best things I ever did. We will certainly visit
    the boats and be on the Pier for the start to wish them well.
