St. Katherine Docks, London, September 1st, 2019 Day of Departure
It was a quick and easy decision, to apply for the Clipper Race challenge back in the autumn of 2017. Fate seemed to open its doors to a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experience as I read about the eleven-month regatta online. As an ETH Zurich student working on a Bachelor’s degree in Earth Sciences, a sailor, an athlete, and a nature lover this seemed to be the perfect challenge. Soon after, my eyes were scanning the wide horizon of the Atlantic ocean and my face pointed into the rough breeze of the English Channel during my first training.
