Following a lengthy application and interview process Scott McCallum, our MD has been selected to compete in next year’s Clipper Race.
The ‘Clipper’ is a round the world yacht race and Scott has been selected to compete in the final transatlantic leg of the race from New York to Portsmouth.
Although Scott does not compete in the race until July ’14 he will be completing 3 x 1 week race training courses over the coming months.
A keen amateur sailor Scott is really looking forward to the challenge – ‘This is a fabulous opportunity to complete ‘a once in a lifetime’ experience. I am really looking forward to both the mental and physical challenges the Clipper will present.’ Scott is currently researching local, Dundee based, charities as he intends to use the Clipper experience as a money raising adventure.
Scott will also keep us in touch with how training and race preparation progresses via Facebook and Twitter.
