Compete in iconic race events with Clipper Ventures Australia

The Clipper Race’s Australian base invites you to join us to compete against sailing’s biggest names in two iconic races Down Under this year.

The Sydney-based Clipper 68 yachts will be racing at Hamilton Island Race Week in August and in the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race in December.

Hamilton Island Race Week – 16-22 August in the Whitsundays, Queensland, is one of Australia’s favourite yachting events with an exciting on-water and off-water carnival.

The package includes one day’s training, six days racing, and (non-compulsory) delivery to/from Hamilton Island. Breakfast and lunch is included each day and you can stay on the yacht for the duration of the event. The cost of the package is AUD$4500 including GST (approx. £2300 incl VAT).

The 2015 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will form part of the 2015-16 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race route for the second time. You can enter the famous Boxing Day event by racing on a Clipper 68 alongside the 2015-16 fleet.

The package includes six days training in Sydney, a two day shore-based course, and the race itself. For those wishing to stay on for the return journey back to Sydney, this is included in the package. Total cost of the package is AUD$7,800 including GST (approx. £4,000 including VAT)

For Clipper Race Alumni the total cost of the package is AUD$7,500 including GST (approx. £3,800 including VAT).
