06a. It’s a small small world

This is not the post I was planning next but had to give an update. Yesterday we went to lunch at a friend of a friend. We were invited by Rene who will be one of my companions (of whom more later when we have the route and timings) and she invited both of us to a girls’ weekend because one of her friends is Donna Von Tunk. If you’re a Clipper follower you’ll know her, if not then she is another of the circumnavigators for the  2019/ 2020 race! The link to her details on the Clipper website is below (and I hope it works!).


So of the 600 or so people who’ll be off next summer for the boat trip of a lifetime, I now three!
