Hawaii to Santa Cruz Day 5

9th April 08

The Clipper fleet are currently racing towards Santa Cruz on the western coast of the States. With only 50kn separating the fleet positions are changing daily and with over 1500knm to go it could be any-ones race!. EMT ambassador Dan Monk is aboard Nova Scotia who are currently 7th.

Dan has sailed with the Trust since 2003, coming back year after year despite a relapse. Eventually qualifying as a Yachtmaster and working for the trust last year as a skipper. Funding for Dan to take part in this historic race has come in the form of Philip Green memorial trust and JP Morgan Asset Management. Dan is hoping to raise 25p for every mile sailed.
