For those of you who are unaware, the Clippers are part of the Clipper Round The World Yacht Race which is the world’s longest ocean race at 40,000 mile journey across six continents. The race began in London, UK on September 1, 2013 and is set to complete its circuit on July 12, 2014. It is the only race in the world that sees organisers supply 12 identical 70-foot stripped down racing yachts – each sponsored by a brand.

Both racing yachts arrived safely from Singapore with different reasons. Jamaica Get All Right had a quick refuelling stop before pushing on to Subic Bay in the Philippines to replace their faulty bottlescrew. As for OneDLL, nicknamed ‘Big Blue’, the yacht diverted here due to a family bereavement of one of their crew member.

At approximately 7.00pm this evening, Jamaica and OneDLL continued their race to QingDao, China with a stopover in Hong Kong.

We wish them best of luck and may the winds be in their favour.

He was later invited to be a guest Chef at Martini’s on 57, Kuala Lumpur from December 2012 to January 2013.
