I arrived yesterday at noon at the Clipper marina and started working right away: checking lifejackets, changing all the lines, cleaning the boards, checking the rig, etc. Lots of things to do before we start racing. Today some people are doing the victualing; buying all the food. They have to separate all the meals in bags, in order to be easier to find what we have to cook each day. We have already gotten a few kilograms of free chocolate from Mars!
Another interesting bit: They are shooting a reality show and our boat will be featured on the first leg. A journalist will be part of the crew and they are fitting cameras in the galley and the saloon. It will be Big Brother on the high seas!
