'Sabbatical from the Kitchen Sink’ Racing round the world the wrong way.
Adrienne Barnett took a ‘gap year’ in her fifties and took part in the BT Global Round-the-World yacht race.
One of 12 yachts and one of a crew of 18, she travelled 32,000 miles, sailing the wrong way – into the prevailing winds – round the world through the Southern Ocean. Mostly on the helm, she had an amazing experience, she did manage to keep drier than most of the rest of the crew and she made friends for life.
Cost: £5.00 for members and their guests.
