The Portsmouth Guildhall today played host to the Crew Allocation event for all of the crew taking part in the Clipper 13-14 Round the World Yacht Race.
Each crew member who has signed up for the world’s longest yacht race was introduced to their skipper and fellow crew who they will race alongside.
Over 400 crew descended on the venue with red Clipper Race jackets taking over the city’s Guildhall Square.
You can see photos from throughout the day on our Instagram feed as well as checking out our new crew section on the website.
The event is another huge milestone ahead of the ninth edition of the race’s start on Sunday 1 September.
We’ll have further photos and videos very soon.
