With just under 4 months to go until the start of the Clipper 09/10 Round the World Yacht Race - the teams are starting to be firmed up. Today the Skippers for each yacht have been named.  Piers Dudin will take to the helm of our local Yacht the Hull & Humber and will hopefully steer our region to victory.  For further details of the announcement go to:

The rest of us have to wait until Crew Allocation Day on 30th May.  I'm keeping everything crossed that I'll be joining Piers on the Hull & Humber and get the chance to represent our region in ports around the world - and of course, sail the home-boat back victorious!
