Henri Lloyd, the Official Technical Clothing Partner of the Clipper Race, has teamed up with the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour to offer three people the chance to compete in a leg of the next edition of the world’s longest yacht race.
Each and every crew member taking part in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race will be supplied with Henri Lloyd foul weather gear which uses the GORE-TEX® fabric. Now both companies are offering three people the chance to take on some of the most challenging conditions on the planet.
The winners will be among the first people to race the new Clipper 70s around the world in the ninth edition of the Clipper Race.
The crew berths available for the winners:
Leg 3 - The Southern Ocean sleigh ride departs from Cape Town, South Africa sailing around the Cape of Good Hope and through the Roaring Forties before arriving on the sunkissed beaches of Western Australia.
Leg 4 - This leg takes the fleet past another of the three Great Capes, Cape Leeuwin, then through not one, but three oceans as it sails from Western to Eastern Australia.
Leg 5 - The Asia Pacific Challenge is the longest of the three legs taking the crew from the heat of a Southern Hemisphere summer up into the tropics and back across the Equator before arriving in Asia.
The prize not only includes the place on the crew, plus all travel and associated costs, but the lucky winners will also be kitted out in the latest Henri-Lloyd GORE-TEX® products.
