For those of you not able to be with us today at SKD, there is a live feed on the internet. Go here https://www.clipperroundtheworld.com/livestream and they say it starts at 12.45 UTC (Co-ordinated universal time) for an hour. I THINK that’s 13.45 BST but check just in case you tune in and miss it all!
George has been on Qingdao since Wednesday night, John is just about to go to Unicef. I shall be leaving in the next hour or so and all the supporters will be gathering, there are over 1500 people on the Supporter boats, not just “true” supporters but also crew who will be sailing on later legs.
More soon with pictures!
