How to keep up with my Sailing Updates Clipper 11-12

Sailing across the world - want news on my progress? Race updates? Here is how...

1) Via Facebook updates
- Either from me when I'm in port (back on land).
- Or by my friend Andy Healy, who will be able to access my FB account if I send an email via satellite communication with a quick email status, which he will ulpoad for me. Or Andy will update status' from the Clipper website/Clipper emails he recieves also with news on the race (if he feels relevant).

2) Via Twitter updates (@lamlungartist)
- Again either by me when in port
- Or by my eldest brother, Gavin, who will be able to access my account if I send an email via satelitte communication with a quick email update.

3) Via the Clipper 11-12 Website


- Click on 'follow'
- then scroll down and you will see different options :- photo, galleries, video galleries, crew diaries
- the main one to read updates on is 'crew diaries' and for Edinburgh Inspiring Capital (yatch I am on). The crew on each of the 10 yachts sailing around the world try and write journals and crew members take turn in writing some news on their yacht sailing on. I'm sure I will too - so keep looking out for crew diaries for Edinburgh (EIC) even if not me - to see how things are onboard our yacht.
- Or have a nosey at the other options:- photo, galleries, video galleries if you have more time.

- And/Or to go back to the 'home page' and scroll down to read 'Race News' for general updates on race itself.

Even though, I will set up satellite communication - with a personal email, I do not have internet access - but, happy to give the email if anyone would like. Just no spam/silly jokes - just genuine messages please. It will cost me to read/reply emails, so please don't be offended if I'm unable to reply - will do my best either when on land or back in the UK. How I will survive without my Facebook/Twitter - who knows ;)!!

So, I intend for updates as I've mentioned above to send as emails to both Andy Healy and my brother, Gavin as one email for them to share with you all via my social networking sites.

4) And my BLOG here which you are already reading 


I would like to hope I can write a journal whether a few lines or a lengthy update on my progress from sailing to each new country on this epic venture.

Thanks lovely people - not long to go now!

Also, if you want you can send me post for when I arrive in the various ports/countries. I have a list of port addresses/dates of arrivals and happy to email anyone else who would like a copy of this who hasn't got it already. Please let me know asap and will organise the list to be emailed to you. To hear from you and life/news will be a blessing especially if I experience some tough times at sea.

Finally, thank you to all who have sponsored me or purchased item (s) on my Amazon wish list. I really appreciate all the help.

I did wish to be able to raise funds for Lam disease (which brought about my transplant) once all my outgoings were covered. So, for those who said they wanted to donate and never got round to it or people who still want to help my cause. Here is the link

JustGiving Link

Even if you can donate £1.00, all costs will help research to find a cure for Lam disease, as I do not want anyone to suffer like I did. Thanks :) xxx
Lotsa love,
Jussie xx
