The Clipper Yachts are in the Albert Dock


If you are into boats, now is a good time to get a close up look at the clipper yachts which are setting sail on Sunday September 16 2007 in the Clipper 07-08 Round the World Yacht Race.

They’re all in the Albert Dock while the crews check things out and clean things and pull ropes and stuff.
They look a bit bigger close up but why on earth anyone would want to risk their lives and health spending 10 months couped up in a 20 metre piece of glass fibre in dangerous waters with about 12 other people is beyond me!
