So it turns out that posting while racing is a terrible idea. The phone interface doesn't work and staring in a focussed manner at a small screen while bobbing up and down is positively green-making. So we're shifting over to documentation through photos shared through Instagram and Facebook. Follow us there!
No trip should be without a soundtrack. And since you;re following along from home, you can immerse yourself even more in our adventure with our Sea Shanty playlist. Guaranteed to make you want to work with others and to ring in your ears for days. These addictive tracks will have you singing along regardless. Just try walking to work with them playing in your headphones!
It's quite likely that we won't be able to be too consistent with updates throughout the whole race. But that doesn't have to leave you hanging! We strongly recommend you sign up for the official daily race update emails to get a regular intake of excellent writing and gripping waterway drama in your inbox. Something fresh for the watercooler conversations!
Hey, even we signed up for the updates... cause we're only going to see what's happening on and near Giant Corn!
It was a stroke of genius to invest in 'Niblet', our little drone. This guy's already shown his mightiness on our Shakedown Sailing trip by capturing some truly stunning shots of Giant Corn cutting through the waves just off Victoria. You can see some of that footage in the video Colin made (included in the previous blog post). Here, just for fun, is a raw bit of footage of Niblet's first ocean take off.
