The crew taking part in the Clipper 13-14 Race will take on some of the toughest environments on the planet. Conditions including exhaustion, huge waves and lack of personal space on board a 70-foot yacht make for a challenging adventure.
As part of the Clipper Race game you too can compete on the same route as the twelve-strong fleet from your computer.
Arguably, as addictive as following the real yachts on the Race Viewer is, the official Clipper Race Game adds an extra dimension.
More than 100,000 people are expected to play the game; players will be tasked with deciding upon navigation, sail plan and boat design. Friends, family and work colleagues will battle it out over the 16 individual races, kicking off on Monday 2 September - the same day as the Clipper 13-14 Race fleet start their sprint to Best in France.
There are some great prizes up for grabs with the overall winner of the Clipper Race Game receiving a week’s Level 1 training aboard a ‘real’ Clipper Race yacht!
