Clipper returns

What a great day out at the Albert Dock today. We went along to see the return of the Clippers after their 10 month race around the world. The Liverpool boat didn't win, but by the sounds of it the crew had a great experience. We know one of the crew - Tony Loftus. He lives not far from us and has a shop on the Albert Dock. Shop staff had hung a banner saying "start working hard - the boss is back". By the sounds of it, the various Clippers have made a lot of people's dreams come true in different ways.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this event - but I was surprised at the number of people there to watch. They must all have gone away feeling that they were at a celebration.

The next Clipper race will start and finish in Hull but we're all keen to see it back in Liverpool again in the future.
