Clipper round the World Race 2019-20
September 1, 2019
The Clipper Race is one of the biggest challenges of the natural world and an endurance test like no other.
With no previous sailing experience necessary, it’s a record breaking 40,000 nautical mile race around the world on a 70-foot ocean racing yacht.
The brainchild of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first person to sail solo non-stop around the world, the event is now preparing for the start of its twelfth edition, the Clipper 2019-20 Race. Starting from London on 1 September 2019, the fleet will complete its circumnavigation when it returns eleven months later, in August 2020.
Divided into eight legs and between 13 and 16 individual races, you can choose to complete the full circumnavigation or select individual legs. It is the only race in the world where the organisers supply a fleet of eleven identical racing yachts, each with a fully qualified skipper and first mate to safely guide the crew.
