The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is what it says – but with a difference. Run by Clipper Ventures who supply a fleet of identical stripped-down racing yachts, it is the only round the world yacht race open to amateurs and novices. In fact about 40% of crew members have never sailed before.
Clipper Ventures is also responsible for supplying world-class training to prepare us for the worst that nature can throw at us. The training has to bring all crew members to the same high standard.
