The Clipper Race has made a donation of $1000 to San Francisco sailing charity, the Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors.

The charity provides sailing programs to people with disabilities and their families to make the sport accessible for everyone.

During the San Francisco stopover, the charity allowed Clipper 70 OneDLL to moor in their usual club berth.  

Clipper Race chairman and founder Sir Robin Knox-Johnston said: “We were delighted that the charity made a very generous offer for us to use the berth and in return we are pleased to make a donation. We have enjoyed meeting the Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors during the stopover.”

Commodore of BAADS, Christine Rubke said: “It was great to have the Clipper Race here and meet all the teams who bought such an international atmosphere to South Beach Yacht Club. The donation is very gratefully received, and it will go towards helping more sailors get out on the water to enjoy the beautiful bay area.”
