My birthday Vendée Globe LIVE – Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year to you and happy birthday to me. Yes, it’s true I may very well have been watching too much Miranda this Christmas and it may have been influencing my very first Vendée Globe LIVE for 2013.

I have had a spectacular Christmas, metaphorically car crashed into 2013 (ie: drank too much alcohol and fell over) and Eurostar-red in Paris last night just in time to celebrate my birthday today, whilst hosting my first Vendée Globe LIVE.

I am back in Paris for my next 10 day shift, and it’s great to be here. I am looking forward to 2013 and all the changes it will bring. 2012 was a bumper year and although it was a year of big wins for many reasons I was glad to see the back of it. Are you looking forward to 2013? I think it’s going to be another whopper. Happy days. xxx

      Thank you Jean-Pierre. Welcome to the blog. Thank you for watching the LIVE. It was my first for 2013.

      Here are some of my previous ones –

      To clarify – It wasn’t an actual car crash – more like a metaphorical car crash – I may have accidentally drank too much alcohol! 😉

      Hopefully, you’ll tune in again tomorrow. Merci, AMMM 🙂
