Tonight at midnight – 6 celebs, 6 professional sailors and a film crew set off to raise money for sport relief by sailing a VOR65 around Britain. One of the sailors is Dee Caffari, who I used to work with many moons ago at the Challenge Business. I have sailed and raced around Britain on many different craft but not on a VOR65 and not in March. It will be cold and wet and windy – with some seasickness – Good luck Dee and crew – we wish you well. I will be following them on Facebook, and you can too, at #Hellonhighseas or Volvo Ocean Race .
Meanwhile, we are very pleased to still be sailing in the sunshine in Lanzarote.
When the videos for Hell on High Water get too hairy for you, why not take a look at this one. Tony’s preview with footage all shot on Velvet Lady last week. Looking forward to the full edition – watch this space.
