YES! Clipper ship City of Adelaide birthday and homecoming celebrations coming up this Saturday 17 May at Port Adelaide, South Australia and I’m going to be there! Loads of fun and entertainment and … I’ve been asked to give a talk to be held in the Speakers’ Tent about the diary I kept on her final voyage on board heavy-lift cargo ship MV Palanpur from Rotterdam on 26 November 2013 to Adelaide on 3 February 2014! Flying out to Adelaide on 14th May, arriving 15th night. This will be the event that will bring my journey with clipper ship City of Adelaide to a close as far as my book is concerned. Back at the beginning of June when sparks will fly from my keyboard.
Well, at last everything is in place. After over eighteen months of tracking progress with plans for City of Adelaide to be returned to Australia I have been given permission to travel on a heavy-lift cargo ship with the clipper to Adelaide, South Australia.
