St Albans resident Shona Davies is joining the crew of the Dare to Lead Clipper sailing in the Round the World Clipper Race to raise money for MIND in Herts to thank them for how they helped her recover from a breakdown. She is leaving from South Africa on 31 October 2017 and sailing to Australia and then on to China, expecting to take about six months in total.

Clive Glover managed to meet up with her to talk about her adventure just before she left for South Africa.
