My name is Ellie, I am 32 years young and, having never sailed before, I decided it would be a good idea to take a year off from my regular employment and sail around the world. Why not. This blog is to record my experience as a Clipper Round The World Race crew member on the 2015/2016 race.
Back home (in Gloucestershire) by day I am a Field Test Coordinator for an engineering company (I make graphs, send emails and try to make people send me data). By night I like to use a different name, put on rollerskates and hit my friends.
I am mainly writing this blog for:
- Me! So I have some good stories to read to my cats when I am a crazy old lady
- My friends and family
- Anyone preparing for their own Clipper adventure in future. I loved reading other people’s blogs and found it very helpful so I hope to spread the goodwill and do the same for someone else x
