Thrings’ Business Growth Hub client, Ben Gillingham is about to set sail on the challenge of a lifetime; joining the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. He will be sailing back to London via the mighty North Pacific, the Panama Canal, Bermuda and New York. Participants face fearsome conditions, from hurricane force winds and 'phenomenal' waves (that's the technical term), through to the sweltering heat and flat calm of the Doldrums. Follow this amazing adventure here.
