Event Details

The Clipper Race is now in its 25th year, a round the world yacht race  “ crewed by people like you, no experience required”. What could possibly go wrong?

As a yacht club member of a certain age I thought I’d give it a try, and so took part in legs 1 & 2 from London to Cape Town in 2019. I shall recount some of the background, highs, lows, trials and tribulations of my race.
