Happy Chinese New Year from the Clipper Race!

As celebrations get underway on land, the Clipper Race fleet counts down the miles during the last stretch of Race 7: The Forever Tropical Paradise Race to Sanya, China. Teams have been getting into the spirit of Chinese New Year, which will fittingly coincide with the first of two Chinese stopovers, by brushing up on their Chinese New Year greetings.

After racing some 4,300 nautical miles from The Whitsundays in Australia to Sanya, China, the Clipper Race crew, visitors and members of the public will enjoy an action-packed timetable of events and tourism activities.

The Clipper Race fleet with berth in Sanya’s Serenity Marina during the stopover, which is a hub of marine activity regularly hosting major regattas including the Round Hainan Regatta. With direct access to South China Sea, Sanya Serenity Marina’s impressive facilities include a dedicated hotel, sailing school, marina club house and race offices.
