'Della's Clipper Adventures'

Club member, Della Parsons, is the Crew Recruitment Director for the only Global race crewed by non-professional sailors, the Clipper Round the World, 40,000 miles Yacht Race.
With no previous sailing experience, Della circumnavigated the globe in the 2009-10 race and then did it a second time in 2011-2012.They were accompanied by a film crew who recorded the TV series, “Against the Tide”, capturing some dramatic footage.
Della will share the challenges of life on board as well as the highs, lows and lessons learnt coping with conditions from the sweltering heat of the doldrums, to 90ft waves in the North Pacific Ocean
She will explain how the Clipper Race is organised, who takes part, and the process from training, through to racing across the world’s vast oceans.
