Webb dives into training for Clipper Round the World
LOCAL sailor Jacqui Webb is in full swing with her preparations for the Clipper Round the World race across 2019-20.
Webb will take part in the year-long race where she travels around the world on a Clipper 70 yacht, one of the fastest yachts in the world, in a fleet of 11 70-foot (21.3m) yachts, making up one of the world’s largest fleets in ocean racing.
The training is a rigorous process in the lead up to their departure in September with Webb recently spending two weeks in Sydney completing level two and level three training.
“It was fantastic up in Sydney and we did some amazing things,” Webb said.
“We completed our level two in the first week and that was about life on the boat and making sure we can handle the circumstances we’ll be sailing in.”
