Hello, I’m Mia.
I’m a nearly 30-something rower, girlfriend, daughter, marketer (and I suppose now sailor) that is trying to get a bit more adventure into her life. After all, life is short. Might as well pack it in whilst you can.
This blog was originally started to document my adventures during the 15-16 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race: an incredible experience that has by far been the biggest challenge of my life.
I was a complete sailing novice that raced Legs 7 & 8 of the race from April-August 2016 as part of the first Visit Seattle Clipper team. In the end, it was over 12,000 nautical miles from Seattle to London via the Panama Canal & New York, taking in the world’s two largest oceans and crossing the North Atlantic. You can find out a little more about why I did it here.
Clipper Race over, I hope that this blog can be a valuable resource for all future Clipper crew that get to sail the world (you lucky, lucky things!).
In the meantime, this blog is now a document of all of the new adventures that taking part in the Clipper Race has inspired me to do, however big or small.
