Clipper Round The World

race logo

Clipper Round The World is a 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot racing yacht – skippered by one professional and crewed by 16-20 amateur crew, some of which may not have any sailing experience before the training.

Set up in 1996 by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston – the first man to sail solo non-stop around the world – the 2017-18 edition will be the 11th race, and the third race of the 12 boats in the current fleet (the Clipper 70s). Each has 24 bunks for crew, although a few generally remain unused: used instead for stores or sails!
