I'm doing something 'Full-On' for Cancer Research.

I'm taking part in the worlds longest round the world yacht race.  I will be sailing on the boat Edinburgh Inspiring Capital as part of the Clipper race.  Myself and the 17 other crew on our 68 foot stripped down racing yacht will compete against 10 other boats to cover the 40,000 miles in the fastest time.  The race starts on 31st July this year and finishes on the 22nd July next year.  We will cross 4 Oceans and experience vast swings in temperature, tropical storms and the becalming Doldrums.

Less people have circumnavigated the globe by boat than have summited on Everest!

So why do it?  Well there is of course the personal challenge.  There is also the fact that my Mum died from cancer on the 1st August 2007 and this is a great way to remember her, by raising money for Cancer Research. 


If you'd like to follow my story throughout the race, take a look at my blog.
