Miss Sumpter and the school bears were spotted on the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race Facebook page on 17th March!
The story read:
In case you missed it.....the Clipper Race fleet has returned to Subic Bay Yacht Club following a rigouros training week in preparation for the North Pacific Ocean crossing.
The week focussed on technical sailing and key safety manoeuvres, such as boat-to-boat transfers and man overboard (MOB) drills, during the day and night. The teams also ran through all sail evolutions, winch-handling, use of grinders and helming, as well as establishing their watch systems so Race Crew are prepared both from a technical sailing and a safety perspective for the mighty North Pacific.
