Round the World Clippers Homecoming parade past the Isle of Dogs


In a previous post this week I give some details of the journey undertaken by the Clipper round the world yachts.


Crews  experienced a wide range of weather conditions from the benign to the extreme: one boat was struck by a tornado, some crews had endure giant waves,  hurricane force winds, dodged icebergs and growlers; extreme heat and cold; be on alert for pirates; had coast guard assisted medical evacuations and a miraculous rescue of a man overboard after being lost in a Pacific storm for over an hour.

The final race was from the Netherlands to Southend which decided the final places.
