Clipper Round the World Yacht Race
About the Clipper Race
Eight legs. Eleven 70-foot ocean racing yachts. 40,000 nautical miles. The Clipper Race is an incomparable test of endurance. With competitors ranging from seasoned sailors to absolute beginners, this is an endurance challenge like no other that provides a unique experience for the bold to take on the most gruelling conditions on the planet.
The Clipper Race is the brainchild of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo non-stop around the world. His aim was to allow anyone, regardless of previous sailing experience, the chance to embrace the thrill of ocean racing; it is the only event of its kind for amateur sailors.
Training is currently underway for the twelfth edition of the biennial sailing event, the Clipper 2019-20 Race, ahead of race start in summer 2019.
