    Rowena Verity – Clipper Race

    7 for 7:30Wychwood Golf Club

    CNYC member Rowena Verity took up sailing just 4 years ago and, having completed the RYA Competent Crew and Day Skipper courses, went on to look for something more challenging. She was soon signed up for five of the eight legs of the 2017/2018 Clipper Round the World Race, a race which is definitely not for softies. As one of a team of 20 amateur sailors aboard the 70ft yacht Garmin, Rowena spent 140 days at sea and sailed over 25,000 nautical miles;  the hard work and physical discomfort were offset by glorious sunsets, shooting stars, dolphins, whales and seabirds. Of the 12 competing boats, Garmin was placed 4th.  Additional insight will be provided by Rowena’s guest, Paul Atwood, who was one of the Training Skippers for the race and also on standby in case a Relief Skipper was needed.
