Round Britain and Ireland Challenge Offshore Yacht Race - 2005


In October 2005 I took part in the Round Britain and Ireland Challenge offshore yacht race as part of Team Samsung.

It was a fantastic experience - racing against four other identifcl 72 foot yachts in everything from flat calm to Gale Force 9.

This is a brief record of that voyage.
