Man Overboard premium

Snow, sun and fun premium
April has been a flurry of activity, with a good balance of work and play. The premature summer we experienced in the UK over Easter weekend makes my trip to Sweden feel like a long time ago now but I was invited to Karun Lodge in Sweden early April for some fun in the snow.…

Just as mother nature seems to be working all hours at this time of year, I too seem to have had a very active month. Earlier in March I attended the premier screening of Maiden. The film documents Tracy Edwards’ journey to become skipper of the first all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the…

Rolex Sydndey Hobart – Race Review premium
Well, although it was the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race, the weather and conditions we experienced made me question where we were in the world. We had warm downwind conditions and finished in 2 days 1 hour 53 minutes and 15 seconds. Crossing the line in sixth place and finishing second overall on IRC. Not…

As I write this, I hope that the majority of people will by now have checked out of work to enjoy a few days of festive fun with loved ones. I have managed to dodge the British weather yet again this year as I spend another Christmas with a difference. I have been in Australia…
