Updates Coming Soon!

Hello Everyone!

It has been an incredibly busy time here in Shanghai as I approach the final preparations to leave and return to the UK for my Level 4 training and RTW Campaign.

We have some updates on the way... I joined a Team Building event in Qingdao 17-18 June 2017, as I couldn't attend the UK one... also, there will be additions to Kit Reviews, AND knowing your knots! 

Lots to look forward too!

I am pleased to announce that I will be joining Skipper CHRIS KOBUSCH and my boat will be CV29 - QINGDAO.

I am extremely pleased to be representing CHINA and QINGDAO in this race.

A whole host of announcements have been coming out! So, I'll be brief here!

We will stopover in Seattle, USA!

SKIPPERS! - Announcement of the skippers was made earlier this month, and I am so pleased to see a few faces that I know including the amazing Wendy 'Wendo' Tuck (with whom I completed Level 3 training) and Connall! (with whom I sailed from Hobart - Sydney!)

Hi from Shanghai!

Back to life... back to reality!

Hi Everyone!
I know there are people that keep returning to the blog in the hope that there is an update on the page with my completion of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race 2016... the update is underway, and will be completed soon! Don't worry, it will be uploaded on my return to the UK later this week.

I must say THANK YOU for all of your support during the last month with my sailing expeditions! I return to the UK this week to visit family and have a well earned rest.

Thanks for your support!

Jess
