We are told by Clipper that our first race destination for Leg 6 will be sorted out by the time we return here. Current options are Qingdao China, South Korea, or Yokohama Japan. It all depends on the ever evolving coronavirus outbreak. Clipper HQ just wants to get all yachts raced to Seattle safely on the original arrival schedule there allowing the fleet to get back to the planned routes and timetables for Legs 7 and 8 which get us around North America and then back across the Atlantic to the UK and final London race destination.
The boys insisted on interrupting sail repair for some golfing so it was off to the links!
The boys golfed with their beautiful caddy’s while Michelle, Sue and I just sat on the veranda having a lovely lunch. We all ordered nachos. Sadly no picture to show for that.
A random encounter while I was on a walkabout to the beach.
I am always on the hunt for a cruising sailboat. What is not to like about this beautiful Hans Christian 41 footer docked in the marina here? I still prefer the smaller and simpler Bristol Channel Cutter, a 28 footer, which I am sure can sail circles around this big heavy cruiser.
Bristol Channel Cutter, my current dream boat. None here in Subic Bay however.
I am a retired software engineer currently circumnavigating the world by sailing yacht via the Clipper Round The World Race. This race started in September 2019 from London, UK and sailed to stopovers in Portimao Portugal, Punta Del Este Uruguay, Cape Town South Africa, Fremantle Australia, Airlie Beach Australia and finalllySubic Bay Philippines where the race was halted due to emerging COVID-19 Pandemic. In March 2022 after two difficult years of coping Pandemic conditions around the world I have finally rejoined this race in the Philippines as it resumes and we aim to sail the 11 Clipper Round The World yachts back to London. Please join me in my journey via these blog posts and consider becoming a crew supporter via the pagers at https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/race/crew-supporters.
