Clipper Round the World Yacht Race
a unique event – raced by people like you
- 12 brand new 70-foot ocean racing yachts
- 40,000-mile of circumnavigation
- 15 races > 13 countries > 1 winner
This is a race that every sailor wants in their log book! You might start as a sailing novice but by the end of eleven months at sea you will have sailed in all conditions from the warm trade winds, through winter storms and the tropical heat of the doldrums, crossing the equator twice.
Anyone, even if they have never stepped on a boat before, can join the adventure and circumnavigate the world in an eleven month-long marathon.
