As a sailor myself, I find this news very cool. As reported on the Clipper Round the World Race News page, Nadine visited her home-town crew and yacht in Oakland.
Diney had the following to say:
The crew for Derry are using the Clipper Race to promote the city, and having one of their own biggest stars must have been wonderful for them. It’s also a bit of a change of tack for Nadine after her recent ANTM appearance, exchanging American glamour for something more workaday. However she still turned up in a stylish black dress and high heels, not the best nautical gear.
Mark Light, the skipper, said:
I’d be thrilled too. Hopefully it gives them a bit of extra confidence for the rest of the arduous race. The 40,000 mile race will end in Southampton in July. It’s a long way to go, but then maybe Nadine has a few travel tips for them, seeing as she’s probably travelled that far many times over.
