I won’t bore you with all the tourist chat but it’s fair to say that I’m making the most of my time in Sydney; Manly, Blue Mountains, Watson Bay, Botanical Gardens, Opera House, Bondi, The Rocks. Making new friends and catching up with old ones. It continues to be a blast. Must do more relaxing (and sorting) though as its now only 5 days until race time. An early Christmas present in the form of an afternoon of pampering tomorrow. That’ll do the trick!
What you need to know about the Sydney Hobart race…a 700 mile (3-4 day ) sprint that starts like this and ends with New Year’s Eve in Tasmania. The bit in the middle (the bass straight) is known to be a bit exciting and we’ve already witnessed that once. Surely it can’t be as exciting as the last leg? Or the Cape Town storm? Or the wild Rio start? Or a flipping tornado? We shall see!
For those those of you that are keen beans and want to know more about the race and personal experiences along the way then take a look at the TV series. This is the one I’ll feature in for a subsequent episode:
A must watch ‘Race of Their Lives 2’ Clipper race gets its UK and European premiere broadcast on BLOOMBERG TV at 1100 GMT Sunday 20 December. BLOOMBERG TV can be seen in the UK on Sky channel 502; Virgin Media channel 609 and Freesat channel 208 – on series link!
