From Hull ..to Hull just 35 thousand miles to go.....My 150th shot seen in Explore
X If you have the time it does look better seen large.
Had to post a shot from Hull which this weekend has been the setting of one big party. The 2009/2010 round the world clipper race set off from Hull yesterday the race will end in July 2010 by then the clippers will have completed 35 thousand miles. There are ten boats in the race from around the world including Australia, California, Cape Breton and Jamaica. This is a shot of the Hull and Humber boat which is crewed by local people who are all amateurs including some local youngsters. Wishing all the sailors a great journey and trust they will also sail safely back into Hull in July.
The boats will stop at various ports around the world so you may get a chance to see them. You can get information about the race at www.clipperroundtheworld.com
THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY
