When I crossed the English Channel by sailboat a couple of years ago, I experienced all kinds of wind and weather and a watch system (2 hours on and 2 hours off through a starry night) over the course of a long distance sailing passage for the first time. Sunny skies and storm clouds, fog and rain and racing current, sloppy seas and flat water, howling winds and dead calm - we had it all! I realized I don't just LOVE sailing, I am a SAILOR! I heard from my skipper tales of the Clipper Race, and the thought that I had to rise to this personal challenge never left me. Finally, the time arrived...
Lynn's Ocean Racing Adventure

LEG 5: ASIA-PACIFIC CHALLENGE
LEG 7: AMERICA COAST-TO-COAST
Want a tour of my home away from home...?
I raced 11,700 miles in every kind of wind and weather to push myself to the max. I experienced every high and low imaginable. Please show your support by donating to one of my favourite charities. I always remembered that I could get off the boat when this challenge is all over, but people in need all over the world don't have the same opportunity. Please help.
Together with ICDR, I partner with clinical sites all over the world to develop and provide speech-language pathology services to communities in need. Your contribution will supporting travel for deserving SLP students involved in this global service program.
