During a visit to Blighty last year, Linda’s cousin mentioned he competed in the 30th Pantaenius Shetland Race. It seemed like a great time was had and I agreed, that if he was going to enter in 2017 then I would join him.
These races are from Bergen, Norway to Lerwick, Shetland Islands. 194 NM in each direction. Starting on the 21st June and finishing some time on the 26th June, it should be a blast! you can read about previous races here: https://www.sailracesystem.no/regatta?regatta=2490
Well, Last night he confirmed entry and today I booked flights to Bergen and bought another kit bag as the one i has is too small.
The only real outstanding question I have is do i bring the Mavic Pro? the thought of me accidentally crashing it into the North Sea is not that appealing, but flying around the Shetland Islands I think is worth the extra weight while travelling.
So, Only two weeks to go until I fly out, better get packing and making sure I have not forgotten anything important.
