Carole takes over the helm as Principle of Performance Yachting Sailing School while Bob takes the helm of Racing Yacht Qingdao in the Clipper Ventures Around the World Yacht Race. Bob joined the Clipper Ventures Team in Cape Town on the 27th October and promptly set sail with the rest of the twelve strong fleet on the 31st on the third leg to Albany Australia. Heading south into the Southern Ocean and all it has to throw at the teams, Bob and his crew of Qingdao survive the notorious seas to arrive in Albany in third place. You can follow Bob and read his Daily Blogs when he heads off for Sidney on the 1st December for the Fourth leg of the race. Visit the Clipper Round The World website.
