David takes on Clipper Round the World Yacht Race

David Marsan the father of someone we support is taking on a challenge of a life time the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

The Clipper Race starts in August 2023 and finishes in July 2024. Click here to find out more information on the race.

In March/April 2024 David will be taking of Leg 6: The Mighty Pacific Leg which will be 8,000 miles and would mean being at sea for 37 days. He will be sailing from China to the USA.

David said ‘When I saw the Clipper fleet return in summer 2022 to Albert Docks London, I was captivated. I spoke to past Crew Team members and immediately discovered this was the next adventure I didn’t realise I was looking for. Facing seas bigger than the boat, whilst trying to win a race, just ticked all the challenge plus experience boxes for me.’

Last month saw him start the first part of his 4 weeks of training where he learnt how to crew a high performance ocean yacht in Gosport.

Next month David will be finding out which boat he will be on and will meet the crew, we will share more on this as and when we can.

As part of the challenge David has thought of Style Acre and he will be setting up a Justgivng page to collect as many donations as possible. We will also be supporting David on his journey and updating everyone with pictures, route maps etc. We might even do a challenge along side him, watch this space.
