Re: Clipper Around the World!!!!
You don't have to do the whole race. You can pay to do a leg. I thought it only cost 40,000 pounds for the entire race. Not sure if that converts to 100k. I've been thinking of doing the So. Africa to Australia leg. You get 3 or 4 weeks of training before the race, which in itself could be useful. But I would have to travel to England or Australia for the training, so there is travel expense on top of the fee they charge. I've been "accepted" to the program, but still not sure if I will pull the trigger. In addition to racing on an open 70, you get to meet Sir Robin Knox Johnson too!
