Clipper Race arrives in the Big Apple

25 June 2022

Following a challenging 700nm sprint from Bermuda to New York, all of the Clipper Race teams have safely docked in Liberty Landing Marina, New Jersey.

All of the Clipper Race yachts experienced a stunning motor through the Hudson to the marina, passing the Statue of Liberty and the magnificent New York City skyline. As the fleet arrived in the marina the crew members were greeted by supporters, Race Staff and of course a cold beer.

First to arrive were the Race 13 podium winners, Qingdao, Punta del Este and WTC Logistics.
