Our twelve Clipper 70s make up the world’s largest fleet of matched design ocean racing yachts. Specially built to take on Mother Nature’s toughest conditions as they circumnavigate the globe, these yachts are designed for speed, not comfort. Crew members are aged 18 and over and come from all walks of life. From nurses, CEOs, artists, lorry drivers, students and housewives, no previous sailing experience is needed to take part as we provide full training.

The 2015-16 Race starts on August 30 and is now more than 93 per cent full. We are also recruiting for the 2017-18 race so if you want to join our intrepid group of adventurers, contact Crew Recruitment Manager Della Parsons on [email protected] or call +44 (0) 2392 526 000.
