LIFE AT SEA
Wed 4 September 2019
With the Clipper Race underway, I caught up with a sailor friend to find out what life at sea is really like. Here is that account.
CLIPPER SET SAIL!
Wed 28 August 2019
Mr David Gateley, Consultant Plastic Surgeon, sets sail on his transatlantic challenge from St Katharine's Dock this Sunday 1 September 2019. Join the party for live entertainment, food, big screen, discovery zone and free events. Learn about life as race crew and watch the ceremony unfold as Tower Bridge opens for the boats to pass.
COUNTDOWN TO CLIPPER RACE
Wed 21 August 2019
Fifteen days to go before the race begins in London! At this stage one is thinking about packing, what to bring, and keeping under the weight limit that is required per crew member, and then thinking through the daily events on board: the watch system, the evolutions of the sail changes and reefs that will be required and the speed with which we will need to do them as we are racing.
CLIPPER ROUND THE WORLD YACHT RACE
Wed 14 August 2019
Mr David Gateley, one of the UK's leading plastic surgeons and co-owner of DRG Plastic Surgery, will be tackling an epic round the world sailing race to raise money for charity. Starting from St Katharine's Dock in London on 1 September 2019, he will join a crew of 60 people on the first leg of the race, a 7,250 mile passage from the UK to Uruguay, spending at least 33 days at sea on a 70 foot ocean racing yacht.
