Clipper Race 2013-14: Life onboard a yacht competing in the round-the-world voyage

Living in a crowded house in Soweto, South Africa with 10 of her family,
Lebalang had never been sailing before she won her place on the Clipper race
but now she says that she loves it.

“The main challenge has been living with people from different backgrounds. In
Soweto I know everyone and we are all the same, it is very different on the
boat,” she said.

It’s a sentiment echoed by many of the crew members, sailing around the world
is hard but getting on with your crew mates when no one has slept for more
than a few hours and the sea is bouncing the boat up and down, is a lot
harder.

For those who can cope with the lack of sleep, poor weather and constant
noise, and who can pay the £43,000 price, the Clipper race offers the
opportunity to step outside of daily life and try a new challenge.
