Today, I’ve been in London seeing friends around what I’m now calling “Clipperland”.
St Katherine’s docks is awash with Clipper signs, carnival dancers and tourists and this is all now getting rather real.
Arriving into London on Thursday night I think made most of us on Visit Seattle realise that our adventure is imminent. It’s not just walking past posters anymore. It’s not just the interview, the training or the preparation anymore. Standing on a 70ft Yacht in St Katherine’s Docks, Clipper flags all around; that’s when I realised that this is it. I’m actually a crew member on a yacht that is going to sail around the world.
All around the docks are signs providing information on each of the teams. You can’t really see it, but MY NAME is on THAT SIGN by that TINY/MASSIVE YACHT! (depending on how you look at it) !
9 months ago, the thought of signing up for this hadn’t even entered my mind.
How did I end up doing this again?!
