Les Perry and His Team Finish in Third Place in Race 3 of The Clipper Round the World Race

Les has made it! After three weeks at sea, living in confined spaces, some of the worlds worst weather and waves, 4,750 nautical miles and an intense race, he has finally set foot on dry land in Freemantle, Western Australia. Les was crew on the 70-foot Clipper “Imagine Your Korea” which finished in a respectable 3rd place after the mammoth race across the Southern Ocean from South Africa to Australia.

The race was very intense, with the first three places undecided until late in the race. 3 weeks at sea, huge waves, the unpredictable Roaring Forties, freezing temperatures and more danger, 3rd place out of eight teams is one that Les and the rest of his team are proud of, crossing the finishing line at 17.08.50 UTC on 25th November.

Wirral businessman, Les Perry joined The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race supporting and raising money for a local charity, Charlottes Brightside. Charlottes Brightside support children and young people in and around New Brighton on Wirral by providing a wide range of activities to positively engage them. To help raise much needed funds for this superb organisation, Les invited local businesses to buy a logo space on a double-sided flag that has been flown at every possible chance during his epic journey in the challenging yacht race.

There was a superb response for the flag and businesses and people who want to donate can still do so by visiting the Just giving page here – https://localgiving.org/charity/charlottesbrightside/

Charlottes Brightside

Charlottes Brightside is a youth club, based in New Brighton, Wirral who support underprivileged children from around the area.  The charity was established in 2011 in memory of Charlotte Churchill, a 19yr old young woman who passed away in April of the same year as a result of a tragic car accident.

Charlottes Brightside has very clear aims to help young people advance in life by providing a space for recreational and leisure time activities that improve their conditions of life  and by providing support and activities to develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.

Les Perry Sails into Charlottes Brightside

The Children at Charlottes Brightside, a Youth Club in New Brighton on Wirral, had a visit from local businessman Les Perry recently and were excited to meet and hear more about Les’s forthcoming adventure on the high seas, supporting Charlottes Brightside.

Les, owner of a successful Roofing Business on Wirral,  is joining the Clipper Round The World Race  a fleet of eleven 70-foot ocean racing yachts who race around the world in a 40,000 nautical mile endurance race. Les has been training hard and will join as a crew member when his yacht, named “Imagine Your Korea”, sets sail on the Southern Ocean Leg from South Africa across the Southern Ocean to Australia.

Seeing a great opportunity to support Charlottes Brightside, Les has created a flag with local businesses paying to have their business logo displayed. The 1.5m x 1m flag which will be photographed in both countries – providing images and a great storyline for further individual business promotions. But best of all, vital funds have been and will be raised for this superb charitable organisation in New Brighton.

Both sides of the flag have now been filled with sponsors, BUT, there is still time to donate directly to the cause, helping Les to raise as much money for Charlottes Brightside, who are raising funds for a brand-new enclosed Astro-Turf pitch, providing a safe, all-year-round area for the children to play on. For those wishing to donate, they have a Local Giving page at https://localgiving.org/charity/charlottesbrightside/ and welcome donations of any amount.

Les, in part of his ocean-going clothing, met with some of the children at Charlottes Brightside and was astounded at the interest shown by the children and the range of questions they asked. Un-prompted questions from the children included “Do you play rugby for England?” (a nod to the t-shirt Les was wearing – and no he doesn’t!), “Can you swim?”, “Are you worried?”, “How big is the boat?” and “How high will the waves be?” At the end of the meeting, Les was emotionally moved when all the children stood up and gave him a rousing cheer and enthusiastic round of applause – giving Les an extra boost for his difficult journey ahead.

Local Businesses “Join” Les and The Clipper Round the World Race

Wirral businesses have come together in support of a local charity, Charlottes’ Brightside, by sponsoring a space on a flag that will join the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. The idea for local sponsorship of the flag is the brainchild of local businessman Les Perry and Charlotte’s Brightside founder, Angie Churchill. Les is joining the Clipper race on the Southern Ocean leg, when he boards the 70-foot ocean-going yacht as it sails from South Africa to Australia. With space at a premium, the full-size flag will stow-away in Les’ luggage and be flown at every opportunity during the epic journey. Les is an active supporter of Charlottes Brightside and is delighted to help raise much-needed funds for this wonderful charity that helps support underprivileged children from the New Brighton area of Wirral.
