Well 2018 has arrived and we celebrated here in Hobart with beers and music on the boat as we watched the fireworks out in the harbour. It was a wonderful end for Andie and me to 2017 and a great start to 2018.
Wherever you are I would like to take the opportunity to wish you a happy and healthy 2018 and my sincere thanks for following my journey in 2017. There is still a final race for me to take part in as we leave Hobart on Friday 5th and head up to Airlie Beach for the last race in Leg 4.
With the end of Leg 4 in sight it will be time for me to bid goodbye to the Clipper race for several months and I’ll be heading home to the UK to return to life on the flat for a while.
Hopefully the technology on the boat will work and I’ll keep you updated as our race progresses but for now here’s a feel for what was happening here as 2017 ended and 2018 started.
