Linda got some prime time on Prime Time this weekend on NBC’s TODAY Show.
Best quote from the video:
TODAY: In all honesty, this is a dangerous endeavor. Were there any moments when you were scared?
Linda: My mindset when I got on was ‘If something happens to me, don’t worry. I’m doing something I’ve always wanted to do. Here I am and whatever happens is what happens.’
Check out the video and follow the fleet on the Clipper Race real-time race tracker.
The fleet heads off today on the final leg of the Clipper Race with a start off Ambroise Lighthouse. Only 3100 miles to go! The ETA into Derry-Londonderry in Northern Ireland is July 7-11, and July 30 into London .
