Story

In August 2017, I’ll be setting off on the challenge of a
lifetime – The Clipper 2017 – 18 Race.  As part of a 20-strong crew, we’ll be racing our Clipper yacht against 11 other teams, over 12 races.  The races circumnavigate the globe, covering over 40,000 nautical miles.  I’ve signed up to take part in all 12 races over 8 legs.

As part of my race preparations, I'm also fundraising for Unicef.  Right now, millions of children are in danger. They face violence, disease, hunger and the chaos of war. Unicef ensures more children get life-saving food, vaccinations, education and protection than anyone else. Today, children in places like Syria, South Sudan and Yemen are caught up in violent conflict, with millions forced to flee their homes. In 2015, Unicef responded to 310 emergencies in 102 countries. Please donate what ever you can to my fundraiser for Unicef UK. With your help, we can build a safer world for children.

Thanks for taking the time to read my story.  We’ll be posting updates as the race progresses – watch this space!   We’ll also be posting about my preparations and the race itself on Twitter @HSweetandsons
